Netflix’s British crime thriller series, Anatomy Of A Scandal, created by Melissa James Gibson and David E. Kelley debuted on April 15, 2022. The first season of the show revolving around the sexual harassment case against James Whitehouse has garnered widely positive reviews all around. Thus, people have already started anticipating its return with Anatomy Of A Scandal Season 2.
Anatomy Of A Scandal Season 2: What’s Next?
At the end of the first season of the thriller series, the court termed that James was not guilty. But we know that he has a history of sexual misconduct. Sophie left him when they came back home. She said she would tell her children the core truth upon being asked the same by James. Later on, she met with Kate and told her that she had gone to the media and exposed the truth about the death of a Libertine boy while they were in Oxford. Subsequently, James is taken away by cops. It is implied that the government may potentially collapse.
If the series returns with Anatomy of A Scandal Season 2, it might follow the aftermath of James’ arrest at the end of the first season. On the contrary, there also lies the possibility that the second season could entirely focus on a new scandal altogether. The first season took place in British corridors of power. Anatomy of A Scandal Season 2 may delve into a family dispute. We might see the involvement of the British Royal Family in a scandal in the second season.
Will There Be Anatomy of A Scandal Season 2?
Netflix premiered the first season of Anatomy Of A Scandal on April 15, 2022. Meanwhile, there has not been any confirmation about the show’s renewal for Anatomy Of A Scandal Season 2 from Netflix or the creators. But this is not surprising given that it has been less than a week since the first season’s release. As per the reports, the showrunner is interested in making a multi-season anthology series.
Showrunner Sienna Miller stated, “I don’t really have the attention span for a long-format thing.” Thus, the second season will probably also have the same number of episodes. But like fans all around, we are also awaiting an official confirmation about the future of the show to clear things up.

Is The Series Based On A Real Story?
Due to the nature of the show, many fans have been wondering whether Anatomy of a Scandal is based on a true story. The answer is no; it is not. The series is a Tv adaptation of Sarah Vaugh’s 2018 novel of the same name. Nevertheless, certain aspects of the show and the book draw inspiration from real-life events and institutions.
Case in point The Libertine fraternity is said to be based on the Bullingdon Club, a contentious all-male dining club at Oxford University in real life. Sarah is an Oxford alumnus who has worked as a political correspondent for The Guardian for over a decade. Sarah’s years as a political journalist for one of the world’s most prominent journals are supposedly the inspiration for the book.
