Fans have also wondered if the blockbuster thriller, which is touted as a limited series, would get a True Story Season 2. Here’s what we know so far regarding the True Story Season 2. If you’re like us and binge-watched all seven episodes of Netflix’s True Story. You’ll be curious if the show will be renewed for a True Story Season 2. So, what’s the most recent news? And what awaits us in the following chapter? Continue reading to learn all you need to know about True Story Season 2.
What Happened at the End of Season 1 of ‘true Story’?
There are True Story spoilers ahead. True Story’s twisted crimes are solved mainly by the finale’s conclusion, owing to a few dead bodies. The brothers are caught by thugs Savvas and Nikos at a Philadelphia 76ers game. This was done after realizing that Daphne’s “murder” was a ploy by Carlton to extract money. Carlton admits to the scheme and even attempts to persuade the mobsters to spare Kid. But it appears that none of the brothers will survive.
Kid, unbeknownst to everyone, possesses a firearm and murders Savvas and Nikos. While Carlton devises a strategy to get himself and Kid out of danger, Kid shoots his own brother. He murdered Carlton and staged the crime scene to make it appear as if the mobsters were the ones who killed him. The cops assume that the kid killed Savvas and Nikos in self-defense, so he gets off easy.
With the murders of the three guys (and Daphne, a.k.a. Simone being shot by the mobsters earlier in the episode), Kid is the only one left who knows the truth. The comic eventually tells his manager Todd and bodyguard Herschel about his bogus confession. But Herschel overhears the truth during the Sixers game. Kid negotiates the money out of the contract for his impending superhero sequel by blackmailing him and demanding six million dollars.
The series comes to a close, with Kid giving the identical speech that he gave at the beginning of the first episode.
What May True Story Season 2 Be About?
By the end of the first season, all of the plot threads had been resolved. Except for Kid, everyone who was directly engaged in the killings is dead. He’s lined up the blackmail payment for Herschel. With even Carlton gone, Kid’s life should be relatively easy from now on, bar the guilt of murdering his own brother. True Narrative is a limited series with seven episodes that describe the entire Story. However, given its success on Netflix, there’s always the chance that the thriller may be revived for a True Story Season 2. If that’s the case, Kid’s previous transgressions and his brother’s death might come back to haunt him.
If True Story is renewed for a True Story Season 2, it might take on a few distinct shapes. One possibility would be to continue the narrative of “The Kid” after the dramatic events of Season 1. Many characters, including Carlton, Gene, and the Greeks, would presumably not return, given how the season ended. However, it’s also conceivable that the truth about what happened to The Kid is discovered. But perhaps a more intriguing possibility would be for True Narrative to continue as an anthology series. Following another great actor in an almost-but-not-quite-true story.
Remember that once creator Eric Newman’s former program, Narcos, wrapped out its Pablo Escobar tale. The show was relaunched as Narcos: Mexico, which told a different story. So True Story might just tell another “true story” in the future. True Story may possibly continue in the main anthology structure, akin to programs like Fargo or The Sinner, but remain in the same universe or have a single carryover character. Consider what might happen if True Story Season 2 followed Chris Hemsworth in the role of himself.
What Did the Actors and Crew Have to Say About True Story Next Season?
So yet, neither Kevin Hart nor the show’s creator Eric Newman has revealed any information on a forthcoming True Story Season 2. On the other hand, Newman has offered some insight into what Kid’s character might do following the last scene, in which the comic gave an interview on CNN’s Don Lemon show. Kid, according to Newman, would most likely twist his role in the killings into a favorable media tour while covering up his murder of Carlton.
Newman added, “[Kid] was always going to utilize that as part of his tale.” “As someone who’s been in the business for a minute, I’ve seen the exploitation of tragedy a million times, and I don’t even judge it at this point,” she says. But in Kid’s situation, this is going to be beneficial. Not only because he’s come to grips with his brother’s connection and discovered the truth, but also because he’ll sell a lot of tickets. He’s about to do a victory lap.
He’ll be on Oprah’s show. At the end of the broadcast, he’s on Don Lemon talking about his loss. Yes, there is a setback. Clearly, his brother deceived him, yet there’s something narcissistic about our finale, don’t you think? “I adore it.”
Is True Story Getting a True Story Season 2?
Eric Newman, the writer and producer behind recent Netflix blockbusters Narcos and Narcos: Mexico, appears to have planned True Story as a limited series.
There is a history of shows that were originally meant to be miniseries being renewed for True Story Season 2 after proving to be extremely successful with viewers. While based on a novel by Liane Moriarty with a definite ending, the performances of Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, and Zoe Kravitz were so well-received that HBO ordered a second season and added Meryl Streep to the ensemble.
Fleabag, directed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, was followed by a critically praised sequel three years later. Mike White’s satirical drama The White Lotus was recently revealed to be returning, although with a new cast of people and a completely different resort location. Several other praised limited series, such as HBO’s Watchmen, have stayed just that, despite fans’ cries for more. Showrunner Damon Lindelof stuck firmly in his choice to present only one tale.
Hart hasn’t indicated if he’s averse to a True Story Season 2, but any fresh narrative ideas would have to be challenging. He told EW, “I’m now tripping into this new zone in acting.” “I’m demonstrating that I can tick all of those boxes, whether it’s drama, thriller, comedy, action-comedy, or just action. It’s all about evolution and growth, and I believe the projects I’ve chosen are a clear expression of that.”
Who May Join the Cast of True Story Next Season?
True Story ends with a cast that has been severely decimated due to a series of killings. Kid, who had grown tired of his brother’s shenanigans, fatally shot Carlton (Snipes). While we don’t recommend such a drastic course of action, we doubt Carlton received much sympathy from the public. Ari (Billy Zane), who Kid strangled, and Ari’s brothers Savvas (Chris Diamantopoulos) and Nikos (John Ales), who was shot in the head by Kid, will also not return.
And Ari’s brothers snuffed out Gene (Theo Rossi), one of Kid’s superfans, after they were deceived into believing Gene was responsible for their brother’s murder. If another set of episodes is approved, we may anticipate Hart to reprise his role as Kid, and the following characters were all alive and well when the closing credits rolled: Herschel (William Catlett), Billie (Tawny Newsome), Todd (Paul Adelstein), and Monyca (Tawny Newsome) (Lauren London). However, we expect a primarily fresh cast to help fill it out.
We know that Hemsworth appears in the True Story world as The Kid’s co-star in The Anti-Verse. So perhaps the next season would focus on Hemsworth as he got himself into some bigger-than-life trouble. Hart merely appearing for a brief appearance as The Kid? Stranger things have occurred in the past. Because, despite the fact that True Story is labeled as a limited series on Netflix. It has enjoyed a successful run at the top of the streaming giant’s ratings. And it implies that people—as well as Netflix’s upper management—are likely to demand more.
