Mare of Easttown was fairly the hit on the 2021 Emmy Awards — however is a season 2 coming? That is the question!
The sequence, led by stars Kate Winslet, Julianne Nicholson and Jean Smart, took house 4 Emmys following the primary season, with Winslet, Nicholson and Evan Peters profitable for his or her roles and the sequence profitable the Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Contemporary Program award.

“I don’t have any kind of specific knowledge on whether there will be one or not,” director Craig Zobel advised DiscussingFilm in August. “I would also say, I love Mare and the Sheehans [her family], and I would totally like to see more of Mare in a season 2 if there was a reason for it.”
However, he famous that “because of the nature of a limited series,” the present was written with the idea that that is the one story. Plus, he appreciated that it felt like an actual finish to a narrative.
“So we went into the idea that we were, you know, telling you about the most important part of this character’s life. It would be a challenge, on the heels of that, to find a season 2 – that would also beat season 1,” he mentioned. “I’m not saying it’s impossible. I’m just saying that this is truly the nature of all of these limited series. You are making it with a sense of finality. That is probably why people like it so much. It’s awfully challenging to do that. I can’t speculate as to whether or not there will be another season, but I would be excited if there is one, as well as being excited to see what everyone does as the next project. So that’s honestly where it kind of stands.”
The HBO drama adopted Winslet’s Mare Sheehan as she tried to unravel a homicide whereas coping with her circle of relatives traumas. The first season consisted of seven episodes.
The Titanic actress, for her half, is open to doing one other season.
