Apple+ TV’s horror drama Lisey’s Story is based on Stephen King’s famous 2006 novel of the same name. The miniseries premiered on the streaming platform in June 2021. The first episode depicted a suspenseful tale of grief, loss, obsession and madness with a supernatural angle. That’s why fans have been wondering if the show will return for Lisey’s Story season 2.
The miniseries follows Lisey Landon, the widow of famed fiction writer Scott Landon. Lisey continued to mourn her husband’s death even after two years. As she learns to make peace with reality, Lisey is constantly approached by parties interested in purchasing Scott’s unpublished manuscripts. Lisey gathers the courage to sort Scott’s belongings from his office and discovers that her husband has left her a treasure hunt.
In addition, the hunt brings her to memory, where she finds the memories suppressed by Scott’s supernatural abilities. As Lisey pursues the treasure hunt, she’s chased by a dangerous stalker who thinks she’s selfishly keeping Scott’s work of genius out of the world. So, will Lisey return for a second season? Let’s find out!
Lisey’s Story Season 2: Renewal Status
Unfortunately, Apple TV hasn’t made a decision on the show’s future yet. The show has not yet been extended or canceled. 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 on Lisey’s Story season 2 in the coming months.
Although, the first episode covered the entire story of the novel. So it’s possible the show won’t return. At the same time, the storyline can still have several arcs that can be explored during the second season.
How did the first episode end?
Lisey and her stalker Dooley got into an argument in the last episode. The tall boy interrupted and tore Dooley apart as Lisey dumped him into the river. The police are looking for Dooley for the murder of Officer Boeckman. However, his boss shut it down after he suspected Lisey might have killed Dooley.
Furthermore, Lisey returned to Booya Moon to complete the bool hunt. She found a box with 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 motive of the bool hunt was to help Lisey with Amanda, teach her to deal with deadly fans like Dooley, and find all of Scott’s secrets so that Lisey could finally move on. Plus, Lisey traded the silver shovel with Tall Boy to see Scott by the pool one last time. The duo expressed their love before Scott disappeared into the water at the end of Season 1.
Who can return for the next season?
The show’s protagonists, including Julianne Moore as Lisey Landon, Clive Owen as Scott and Jennifer Jason Leigh as Darla Debusher, could reprise their roles when the series returns for its second season. In addition, Dane DeHaan as Jim Dooley and Joan Allena as Amanda Debusher may also return in Season 2. In addition, Ron Cephas Jones, Micheal Pitt, Omar Metwally and Sung Kang are expected to join the cast for Lisey’s Story Season 2.
Lisey’s Story Season 2: When will it come back?
The show has not yet been renewed for its second episode. Production on the first season started in October 2019. However, the main photography was delayed due to the pandemic and it took almost a year to finish shooting. It took the VFX team nine months in post-production.
So if the platform extends the second episode in a few months, we can expect Apple TV+ to release Lisey’s Story Season 2 in mid-2023. So stay tuned for more exciting news updates on your favorite TV shows, only on Ditching247.com.
