Mare of Easttown Season 2: Plotline and Expectations
The Mare of Easttown was released as a mini-series which means that it is limited.

Based on the number of views, it can be said that each episode of The Mare of Easttow has been watched by hundreds of thousands of people more than the previous episodes. Therefore, it would not be surprising if HBO will announce a season two for the series. After the final episode, the fate of the Mere was asked to Ingelsby by Variety, the creator, and he responded.

Although we know what could happen to Mere in season two, we still don’t know the chances. So what is the likelihood of happening of this? When this question was asked to Brad Ingelsby, what he said was not very promising for the audience. He responded to a question asked to him by the Hollywood Reporter:
Ingelsby said that it was planned as a limited series, and it happened in this way. Therefore according to him, all the mysteries have come to light, and there is nothing left in the mist. So he thinks if they can create a second story that they think can be pulled off, Mare might deserve a second chance. And he adds he hasn’t been able to do so; he still does not know what the story can be. However, Brad says, the team can be convinced as long as there is a second season that the first season will be honored and make the viewers say, “Okay, they pulled it off.”. Then the audience might see a season two. However, as of now, he has nothing about what season two could be.
Yet, in the movie industry, fans could determine the future of the series. For example, Big Little Lies was created to be done-and-gone in the first place. Nevertheless, the will of fans forced Big Little Lies to come true, and we have seen a season two for the series.
Besides the willingness of fans to see a season two for Mare of Easttown, Kate Winslet also mentioned her desire to play more as more Mare. She chatted to TV Line:
She said that she absolutely has the urge to play the role again. Kate also mentions she really misses the character. According to her, It was fantastic to play the role that she felt she was mourning as if she was Mare herself. Winslet thinks that playing Mare was a wonderful thing that could happen to her. She also adds how outrageous, lovely and brilliant Mare is, making the role addictive for her.
In light of all that is known, it would not be surprising if HBO renews the series, if a renewal comes soon, we can watch the new season of the series in the summer of 2022.
