Netflix released the first season of the British crime drama series in December 2021. Even though the ending of the first resolved the ongoing narrative, fans still want more of the series. But will the show ever return for Stay Close Season 2? What are the chances? Let us find that out below-
Stay Close Season 2: Renewed Or Now?
All the episodes of the debut run of Stay Close dropped on Netflix on December 31, 2021. Talking about the prospect of Stay Close Season 2, there has not been any announcement yet by the network. It is also important to note that Stay Close was initially planned as a miniseries. And since the story has reached its natural point of conclusion, its return for Stay Close Season 2 does not seem very likely.
The writer of the series Harlan Coben also stated in an interview stated, “They weren’t going to pressure me into doing a season two, three, four or five. I could make it six episodes, eight or 10. Whatever we need to make the story work.” He further stated, “We’ll look to make future series in various countries, we’re developing three others right now that I can’t talk about, one of which is in a new territory.”
Lorraine’s Big Secret!
Lorraine is introduced as a distant observer of Megan, and it appears that she will be a big threat throughout the season. On the other hand, Lorraine reveals that the two were friends and that she still cares about Megan and wants to help her. This is a smart double-bluff, especially considering the ending twist.
Lorraine’s shocking reveal at the end of Stay Close actually reminds me of one of the best characters from Last Night in Soho. She tells Broome that she has been murdering guys at Vipers for years in order to protect herself and “her daughters.” By the time this is revealed when she is diagnosed with terminal cancer, the show has effectively had the audience sympathize with Lorraine, making her ending all the more shocking.
The Shocking Truth!
In the first season of the Stay Close, Lorrain admitted that she killed Carlton Flynn in her final interview, even though his corpse was not in the bunker. When it appears that the story is about to finish, flashbacks reveal Kayleigh is admitting to Megan that she left Carlton in the back of the car. Megan’s husband then confesses that he accidentally murdered the missing man when driving the car into the river.
However, little did the viewers know that the show had already indicated a plot twist. We are left pondering the question of whether she will reveal the entire truth to her husband or keep lying to protect him, as the show ends with the final shot of she found out what he has done.
The prominent cast of Stay Close features Cush Jumbo as Megan Pierce-Shaw/Cassie, James Nesbitt as DS Michael Broome, and Richard Armitage appear as Ray Levine. The show also stars Sarah Parish as Lorraine Griggs, Eddie Izzard plays Harry Sutton, Jo Joyner as DC Erin Cartwright, and Youssef Kerkour can be seen in the role of Fester.
Meanwhile, other cast members in the series include Daniel Francis as Dave Shaw, Dylan Francis as Jordan Shaw, Tallulah Byrne as Laura Shaw. Then we have Andi Osho playing Simona, Bethany Antonia appears as Kayleigh Shaw. In addition, we see Rachel Andrews as Bea, Poppy Gilbert as Barbie, Hyoie O’Grady as Ken, and Jack Shalloo as Brian Goldberg in the show. If the series is recommissioned for Stay Close Season 2 in any scenario, most of the main cast members are expected to reprise their roles.
