The Stranger Season 2 – Release Date, Cast, Plot, Trailer

The premiere season of Netflix’s The Stranger enticed its audience with its excellent storytelling. The dark tone replete with the thriller elements were enough to make audiences want more. And although the show has seemingly run out of source material, there is hope that given the show’s reception that Netflix will have the show return for a second outing.

Netflix has a history of stretching the source material long beyond the original author’s vision. For one, their controversial show 13 Reasons Why will soon return for its final season. The show has progressively become worse with each new outing, so here’s hoping that The Stranger doesn’t suffer the same fate if it does come back.

The Stranger Season 2 Is Anyone’s Guess

In an interview with Digital Spy, Harlan Coben revealed that the show was created the show to be one season. He then also went on to reveal that “We don’t think it’s fair to have one of those shows where they don’t give you all the answers, and you have to wait until season two before you get it. This is a closed story. You learned all the answers by the end, and the ending is tremendously satisfying.”

When pressed for any updates on a second season, Coben said that he wouldn’t rule out a sophomore outing. He said that some of the characters “may” return for a second season but that wasn’t the original plan. The original plan being giving the audience one satisfying season, of course.

Any word on the second season show then, at this point, is pure speculation. Netflix usually renews its shows annually to ensure maximum audience retention. But given the fact that Coben has some clout and wanted the show to be just one season, any future updates are wrapped in uncertainty.
Whatever the case, The Stranger is now streaming on Netflix, go check it out!
