Academy Award winner Renée Zellweger was recently featured in NBC’s crime drama based on the real-life murder of Betsy Faria. The series created by Matt K. Turner Blaine Williams might have wrapped the storyline nicely in its first season finale. Nevertheless, many fans are still hoping for his return with The Thing About Pam Season 2. But is it coming? Let’s find out!
Will There Be Something About Pam Season 2?
The first season of The Thing ABout Pam, which aired on NBC on March 8, ended on the network on April 12, 2022. In the meantime, as far as the future of the show is concerned, we wish fans that the program was announced by NBC as a limited series. Based on real events, the series’ first season wrapped up the ongoing storyline nicely and the chances of it coming back don’t seem very high at this point.
But we’re not completely ruling out the possibility of The Thing About Pam season 2. There have been instances in the past where limited series have been extended for more seasons due to overwhelming fan response, such as HBO’s Max’s The Flight Attendant. So maybe there is a small chance after all.
What Happens in Season 2 of ‘The Thing About Pam’?
The first season of The Thing About Pam takes a deep dive into the 2011 murder of Betsy Faria, which wrongly convicted her husband Russ Faria. At the beginning of the season, viewers saw Betsy’s close friend Pam Hupp. She was the last person Betsy saw the night before she was killed. When Betsy was found dead, Russ called the police, but he was arrested as a suspect in the murder. After being arrested, Russ hired a criminal defense attorney named Joel Schwartz, who is among the best in the business world. On the other hand, Pam helped the police build a strong case against him.
Pam did everything that couldn’t get her name on the case, but soon lost control when she was overwhelmed by everything she had to deal with. However, public opinion turns against her as she fights a civil suit against Betsy’s daughter for the insurance money. And people started linking her name to murder. As a result, District Attorney Leah Askey was in a difficult position. Pam goes to great lengths to remove her name from the case, but is in even more danger. If the series returns with The Thing About Pam Season 2 being made, it will most likely pick up where Season 1 left off and track the ramifications of Pam’s actions in great detail.
The cast of NBC’s The Thing About Pam includes Renée Zellweger in the role of Pam Hupp. Josh Duhamel appears as Joel Schwartz. Gideon Adlon can be seen as Mariah Day and Olivia Luccardi as Lily Day. The show also stars Judy Greer as Leah Askey, and Sean Bridgers takes on the character of Mark Hupp. Fans can also see Katy Mixon as Betsy Faria. Glenn Fleshler plays Russ Faria, Suanne Spoke as Janet, while Ben Chase appears as Nate Swanson.
Plus, there’s Alice Barrett-Mitchell starring as Cathy Singer, Dane Davenport as Mike Wood, and Drew Scheid in Travis Hupp’s character. If the series is relaunched for The Thing About Pam Season 2, we can expect most of these protagonists to return to their respective roles. On the other hand, the second season could also introduce some new characters to the story.
