Lisey’s Story Season 2: Renewal Status
Sadly, Apple TV has not made any decision about the show’s future yet. The show has neither been renewed nor canceled yet. Meanwhile, the miniseries has received a mixed rating of 5.8/10 and 53% on Rotten Tomatoes. Hopefully, the streaming network will make a decision about Lisey’s Story Season 2 in the upcoming months.
Although, the first installment covered the whole story of the novel. Hence, there is a possibility that the show may not return. At the same time, the storyline might still have several arcs which could be explored during the second season.
How Did The First Installment Conclude?
Lisey and her stalker Dooley got into a fight in the final episode. The long boy interrupted and tore Dooley apart while Lisey disposed of him in the river. The cops looked for Dooley for the murder of officer Boeckman. However, his boss shut it down after suspecting that Lisey might have killed Dooley.
Further, Lisey returned to Booya Moon to complete the bool hunt. She found a box that contained Scott’s handwritten letter “Lisey’s Story. The letter revealed that Scott’s father was mentally unstable and asked Scott to kill him. Scott also revealed in the letter that the bool hunt’s motive was to help Lisey with Amanda, teach her to handle deadly fans like Dooley, and find all of Scott’s secrets, so Lisey could finally move on. Moreover, Lisey traded the silver shovel with long boy to see Scott one last time at the pool. The duo expressed their love before Scott disappeared into the water at the end of season 1.
Who Could Return For The Next Season?
The show’s lead cast members, including Julianne Moore as Lisey Landon, Clive Owen as Scott, and Jennifer Jason Leigh as Darla Debusher, could reprise their roles if the series returns for the second season. Further, Dane DeHaan as Jim Dooley and Joan Allena as Amanda Debusher could also return in season 2. In addition, Ron Cephas Jones, Micheal Pitt, Omar Metwally, and Sung Kang are also expected to join the cast for Lisey’s Story Season 2.
Lisey’s Story Season 2: When Will It Return?
The show has not been renewed for the second installment yet. The first season’s production began in October 2019. However, the principal photography was delayed due to the pandemic, and it took almost a year to finish filming. The VFX team took another nine months during post-production.
Hence, if the platform renews the second installment in a few months, we can expect Apple TV+ to release Lisey’s Story Season 2 by mid-2023. So, stay tuned for more thrilling news updates about your favorite TV shows only on TechRadar247.com.
