The television series Cypher is a drama produced and created by Majdi Smiri. The TV show first premiered on Netflix on Wednesday, October 21, 2020. It has seven episodes in its premiere season. Martin Dingle Wall starred in the television series as Will Scott. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Here’s everything we know about Cypher season 2.
‘Cypher,’ created and directed by Majdi Smiri, is a crime thriller television series and the first part of the original (licensed) program from Roku. It revolves around an elite FBI crypto analyst Will Scott who is assigned to crack an encoded document containing important and classified information. Will’s life is thrown into chaos and destruction due to the risks associated with the paperwork which turns out to be a hit list. If the show’s incredibly compelling premise captivated you, we bet you must have skipped season one and has been desperately looking for details in season 2.
Cypher Season 2 Release Date
The first season of ‘Cypher’ was released on March 19, 2021, on The Roku Channel and consists of 7 episodes with a run time of 42-50 minutes each. As for the second season, the show’s creators or streaming services have yet to comment on the show’s future. The first season of ‘Cypher’ ended on a cliffhanger and fans are demanding resolution. The ending likely worked that way as the creators have a clear idea of where the show is headed in a prospective season 2. When Roku wants to expand its content, having a native program will be advantageous to attract new subscribers. Therefore, Roku could very well renew the show for a second season later in 2021, which means we can expect ‘Cypher’ season 2 to be released sometime in 2023 at the earliest.
Cypher Season 2 Expected Cast
‘Cypher’ season 1 features Australian actor Martin Dingle Wall as crypto analyst, Will Scott, who works with the FBI. John J. Jordan, Dario Antoine Lee, and Eve Mauro each wrote the characters of Andre, Samuel, and Rece, Will’s FBI co-worker. Jaclyn Hales appears as Will’s partner, Claire. Mary Helen Schmidt and Lauren Gravitt appear as Will’s ex-wife and daughter. All the main characters are alive and well at the end of season 1. Therefore, we hope that all of the main cast members return for season 2. Sonny King, who played Claire’s boss, Chris, can appear in a bigger role in season two, now we knew he was a shady figure trying to get on the hit list.
Cypher Season 2: Expected Plot
The first season follows Will cracking a piece of code to decipher the information that provides the FBI with data on targets on the hit list. Towards the end, we learn that Claire has been working for Chris and is planning to steal the document. However, when he failed, Chris ordered him to kidnap Anna, Will’s daughter. In the end, Will forms an easy alliance with the FBI to save his daughter. However, we see that hacker Will hides copies of the documents by getting killed, and we cut the credits, leaving every major conflict of the show unresolved.
A prospective second season could resolve this conflict while shedding more light on who created the document. Will was finally able to crack the complete code or at least get closer to him and learn enough important information that would allow him to bid for his daughter’s life. His alliance with the FBI is shaky as Will is still the prime suspect in the murders due to his involvement with the hit list. We’ll have to wait and see if he clears his name in season two.
Lastly, Chris’ true motivation behind obtaining the list can be revealed when he takes on a much more direct role in the conflict surrounding the document. The news surrounding the water cooler is that its makers are in conversation with the encrypted mail code breaker Zodiac Killer to consult on season 2, so we can expect another mysterious code to appear in some form.
