What’s Happening in Kin Season 2?
The first season of the series revolved around the feud between the Kinahan gang and the Hutch gang. Eamon’s long reign of terror came to an end with a shot in the riveting season one finale. Meanwhile, not many details are known about the plot of the second season of the show. However, the showrunner Peter McKenna in an interview gave us something to talk about the Kin season 2.
In a subsequent season of the show, he stated that he wants to completely overhaul family relationships. The first season mainly revolved around a woman’s grief and the consequences of her loss. He wants to focus on historical trauma in the next. However, it will contain all the attributes of the Gangland genre. According to Peter, if and when a second season is confirmed, “Kin” could get much darker and deeper than it has been so far.
The real-life violence of the Kinahan and Hutch gang inspired ‘Kin’. In real life, the 2017 battle claimed the lives of 12 people. Therefore, the next season of “Kin” will most likely focus on the increasing tension between the two sides. The drama, hostility and ferocity will no doubt continue in Kin Season 2.
Who will be in the second season?

The series also stars Maria Doyle Kennedy as Bridget Goggins, Emmett J. Scanlan as Jimmy Kinsella, Sam Keeley as Eric Kinsella, and Ciarán Hinds as Eamon Cunningham.

The series also casts Ryan Lincoln as Isaac Kemela, Ben Carolan as Glen Wright, and Neill Fleming appears as Dotser Reid, among a few others.
When the show returns with Kins season 2, most of the main characters from the first season will likely return to their roles. On the other hand, there may also be some new faces in the second season.
