Reckoning is a limited series filmed in Australia, was originally intended to air internationally on Sony’s AXN network. Without a doubt leaving fans of the show wondering if and when a second season would be released. Here’s what we know so far about a possible Reckoning Season 2. Instead, the series was released internationally to Netflix subscribers on May 1, 2020. The series revolves around the story of an assassination that draws two small-town cops and a local wrestling coach with a serial killer past. Season 1 of Reckoning ended in a cliffhanger.
What Is The Reckoning Series About?
The series explores the darkest parts of the male psyche through the lense of two fathers, one a serial killer and the other a cop. Like most men, Leo and Mike try to do their best for the people they love and the families they protect. But as the two struggle to suppress their inner demons, the murder of a local teenager puts them on a path of shared destruction that will ripple throughout every aspect of a serene suburban community.
The intriguing incident for the first season of “Reckoning” was the murder of a girl at the high school where the children Leo and Mike attended. Mike becomes dedicated to the point of obsession with solving the murder. As for Leo, the murder begins to trigger his sociopathy that urged him to kill in the past.
At the end of Season 1, Mike explains to Leo that he is fully aware that he is a serial killer. Leo’s wife Candace (Laura Gordon) also finds out that Leo is a murderer. but unlike Mike, she seems to agree with the news. The dynamics of these two characters will likely be the driving force behind the second season of “Reckoning.” Even though Mike knows Leo as a murderer, he still must bring evidence to force Leo to publicly admit to his crimes. Candace’s recent knowledge that her husband had murdered could also reshape their dynamic significantly if a second season of the series is made.
Reckoning Season 2: Will It Be Released?
Unfortunately, Reckoning Season 2 will most likely be canceled because the story is finished and provides a satisfying conclusion for the audience. Reckoning was first released in New Zealand in 2019. After having moderate success, the film became available on Netflix (Valhalla Murders) for US viewers in May 2020.
In the early episodes, Reckoning stirred up intrigue but over time ran out of originality. Season 1 ended with our cop finally managing to trace his prey after missing many past coincidences. All dots are connected and all mysteries are solved. With not much left to explore, it’s highly unlikely that Reckoning Season 2 will ever happen.
The series scored a rating of 6.6 on IMDB and only a 58% viewer score on Rotten Tomatoes. The average rating doesn’t guarantee any updates. It’s also important to note that the show was dubbed a miniseries or limited series. The whole story is well condensed in 10 episodes and therefore the chances of Reckoning Season 2 are limited.
Reckoning Season 2: Cast
Even though Season 2 of Reckoning is discontinued, it does not rule out the possibility of a season 2. If season 2 continues, we have our own prediction of the cast who will play in the next season.
That said, all of its central characters made it through Season 1 unscathed and would still be important in the ongoing story. Barring major conflicts, the main cast of the first season can be expected to return if the series is renewed a second time.
Sam Trammell, who plays Leo Doyle, is one of the two main characters of the series. Aden Young is the series’ co-lead, playing as local cop Mike Serrato.
Apart from them, the “Reckoning” cast consists of Laura Gordon as Leo Candance’s wife, Simone Kessell as Mikes’ wife Paige, Milly Alcock as Mike Sam’s daughter, Finn Little as Mike’s son Jake, and Ed Oxenbould as Leo’s son Paxton. If the series is renewed for a second season, the dynamics of the Serrato and Doyle family will definitely change amid the ongoing serial killer drama.
