The Harper House Season 2: What Is It About?
Although there will not be The Harper House season 2, let’s take a quick look on how the first season was going.
As mentioned earlier, The Harper House revolves around Debbie Harper, the matriarch and the bread-winner of the family, as she is forced to move her family to the poor area of a small town River Creek in Arkansas, after losing her high-salary job.
Although their living condition is far from ideal in the old and broken house, Debbie is doing everything in her power to get her status back and bring their family to be able to fit in.
In the episode finale of the first season with the title ‘Bad Help’, we can see how Freddie looks up to find out whether The Harper House is a historical site, in order to get out of paying taxes. It turns out that it actually is, but it belonged to a racist relative who hid a giant KKK status in the barring pillars. So together they are trying everything they can to try and cover it up.
However, as they are taking a trip through the neighborhood with the mayor, Debbie accidentally removes the cover and shows to everyone the statue. Finally, Freddie announces that he will burn the house, not knowing that the statue is made of diamonds that can pay their taxes. Debbie blows the house, and they decided to just move on with their life.
