Those of you who finished watching the suspense drama The Widow are no doubt looking forward to a Season 2. Neither Amazon Prime nor ITV has yet to confirm the renewal. Back in April 2019, Harry and Jack Williams announced exclusively to Express.co.uk that they have no plans to create The Widow Season 2. However, we can’t treat such a statement as the cancelation of the series.
Will there be a season 2 of The Widow?
As a rule, the decision on renewal mostly depends on a television network. As a result, until ITV or AMAZON (‘The InBetween, The Rook‘) has yet to confirm the cancelation, we still have a chance for renewal. Besides, The Widow has received mainly favorable reviews from both critics and viewers. On Rotten Tomatoes, The Widow Season 1 holds a score of 5.80/10 and a 57% approval rating. On Metacritic, the suspense drama has a rating of 65/100 and 5.1/10, among critics/viewers, respectively. At the same time, an overall score of The Widow on IMDb is 6.9/10 based on about 9k votes (as of today).
Unfortunately, we have no data about the television ratings. If we could have such data, we might make more reliable forecast. Nonetheless, given all the data we have, looks like that The Widow won’t return for a sophomore season. But still, you should bear in mind that if ITV or AMAZON (Electric Dreams) decides to order another round of The Widow, the show’s creators wouldn’t have a chance to refuse such a promising offer.
Therefore, even despite the fact that Harry and Jack Williams have no idea how to move forward in Season 2, we tend to believe that The Widow has a chance to be renewed for another season. Whether we were right or wrong, we will see. In any case, if ITV or AMAZON announces the renewal (or cancelation) of the show, we will update this page. So guys, stay tuned for updates.
The Widow Season 2 Release Date
As mentioned above, it’s quite a doubtful matter that there could be a second season of The Widow. But unfortunately, their desires can’t be fulfilled as script makers Harry and Jack Williams validated that there aren’t any schemes to extend the story. They mentioned that they are contented to see the kind of ending that the show has got.
Yet in the case of renewal, we tend to think that at least one year is required to create another television season. However, given the fact that there is no source material, the production cycle could take much more time. The closest period for the possible premiere of The Widow Season 2 is 2024.
But still, you should take into account that the odds are weak. We are tracking down all the official news that arrives from AMAZON and ITV, to provide you all the possible reliable data on the subject. As soon as any of the networks confirms any data about The Widow Season 2, we will update this page. We will keep you informed.
