Netflix’s Adult animated series, The Midnight Gospel, revolves around an interdimensional space-caster named Clancy Gilroy. The series created by Duncan Trussell has been a major hit since its first season. But fans are craving more. So, will The Midnight Gospel Season 2 return? What are the chances?
Midnight Gospel Season 2: What’s Next For Clancy?
The first season of Midnight Gospel concluded with Clancy Gilroy questioning the nature of his existence. We saw him getting on a bus where everyone he had ever met on his adventures was present. There he questions one of them, “Am I dead?” The cliffhanger ending of the first season left fans baffling about the case. Despite the fact that death plays an absolutely essential role in the plot of The Midnight Gospel, we are skeptical of the fact that this is how things end for the main character.
While talking about the ending of the first season, Trussell stated, “So to me, when it comes to the idea of beings living inside of a simulator or simulation theory itself, what I love about it is it invites us to ask the question: Are we real? Are we alive? Is this actually happening? And if it is, how do we know for sure? And so that’s my ambiguous answer to your question.”
When the animated series returns for Midnight Gospel Season 2, it may pick up after the nail-biter ending of the first season. Given how the first season wrapped up, there is a high chance that The Midnight Gospel Season 2 will contemplate death even more than the first season. The second season may explore the debate of reincarnation, the afterlife, eternal damnation from the eyes of Clancy Gilroy. The season may focus on concepts like existentialism. Finally, to find out what Trussell and Ward will bring for us in the next season, fans will have to wait until the streaming giant Netflix green lights the series for a second season.
When Is Midnight Gospel Season 2 Coming?
The entire first season of the adult animated series dropped on Netflix on April 20, 2020. Now, talking about the Midnight Gospel Season 2, even though the first season of the series has been a massive hit. However, Netflix is still taking its sweet time before it decides to renew the show for Midnight Gospel Season 2. So as of now, we do not have a confirmed release date for the second season.
However, showrunner Duncan Trussell, in an interview, stated, “There’s so much more in that world, and we just barely scratched the surface of it, so I would love to make a million more episodes of Midnight Gospel because we only covered the very, very basic world, and we didn’t really get into some of the other stuff that’s going on in the Ribbon, which to me is really, really exciting. I just really want to tell that story.”
He continued, “There’s so many more stories to tell about The Chromatic Ribbon. You know, we mapped out that world, and we barely, barely got into that world. But nothing you’re seeing in that show – not a single word, not a single moment – was unintentional. It all connects to a really big history, and a very deep story.” So there is more than a fair chance of the second season happening.
In the fourth episode of The Midnight Gospel, Clancy teams up with Trudy Goodman to travel through a medieval-style planet. Trudy talks to Clancy about the significance of forgiveness and how it is good for the mind and soul to let go of old grudges. Trudy demonstrates to Clancy that forgiveness does not have to mean loving your enemies; it just means no longer stressing over them in an inspiring and enlightening moment. She makes an eloquent point on how choosing to pardon may be liberating for the heart.
