At the beginning of this year, Netflix dropped a mystery thriller, which became the favorite of every viewer of this genre. Now everyone is asking for whereabouts of The Stranger Season 2. The debut season made an impeccable impression on the fans and left them crying out for more. The show is also getting a lot of praise from the critics for its content and flawless storyline.
The Stranger is a mystery thriller web TV series. It is the remake of the 2015 Harlan Coben novel of the same name. This show released worldwide on 30 January 2020 on Netflix and became an instant hit. This eight-episode mystery thriller is full of surprises, with each part ending on a cliffhanger. This show is one hell of a binge-watch, and according to the creators, this series is developed for binge-watching only.
Will The Show Ever Return?
The official renewal for the second season of this show is yet to come from Netflix. The odds are not in favor of the renewal of another season. The inaugural season adapted the whole book, and now the creators don’t have any source material for the second season. However, the fans already saw some exceptions in this kind of case and 13 Reasons Why is an excellent example of it.
Harlan Cobain, the author of this show, recently stated that he was not interested in making the second season. According to him, The Stranger Season 2 was never in a plan. He said, “This is an exclusive story. You uncovered all the answers by the end, and the ending is amazingly satisfying. Could some of the characters return to season two? Maybe, but that’s not our intention. I never say never, but it’s not our plan. Our plan is to give you one great, great season.”
The Stranger Season 2: Plot Details!
The inaugural season of this show follows the story of Adams and a stranger girl. She told Adam a secret, which had a disastrous effect on his perfectly seeming life. She is a woman in her 20s with a baseball cap, and as the series progressed, it becomes more profound and violent. In the closing moments of the first season, the fans saw Adam shooting Doug Tripp and raising Patrick Katz for the murder with the help of Johanna. The debut season ended ambiguously, and that is one of the main reasons that the fans think that there is a space for The Stranger Season 2.
The second season can pick up right after the end of the first season. The fans might see the stranger girl revealing much darker secrets about Adams. If the second season comes, it can also explore about Dug Trip and Heidi murders, and start another era of chaos. The protagonist might return with a fresh set of the story but with the same theme. Adams’ son can also play a significant role in the story of the second season. He still doesn’t have any hint about what his father did.
The Stranger Season 2: Release Date
The release date of the second season totally depends on when Netflix will give the green light for it. And how quickly the writing team could get together to work on the story for it. If the creators renew the show on time, then the fans can expect The Stranger Season 2 to release in the first half of 2021. The only thing we can do now is to wait for any official update from Netflix.
