If you are someone who is personally enthralled by the genre of crime and thriller, The Watcher was probably a Netflix series you binge-watched in 2022. Ever since its release and the end of the first season, the audience has been demanding more answers regarding the release of the show’s second season.
The first season of The Watcher aired in October 2022 and while it has been a few months since then, the fans are looking for more concrete answers regarding the show’s renewal status and the eventual release of the show in the future.
This article will explore more about The Watcher Season 2, its release date, expected plot, and cast.
When is the Watcher Season 2 Releasing?
Good news for the fans of The Watcher, Netflix has already renewed the show for a second season. However, there is no news regarding the show’s release date yet.
Initially, there were rumors that the show would be released as a limited series, which led to people believing that there wouldn’t be any more seasons of the show. However, Netflix ended up renewing the show seeing the demand among the audience.
It has been around five months since the show’s renewal and there hasn’t been any news from Netflix or the series’ showrunners regarding the official release date yet. We’d keep you posted about the release dates, so bookmark this webpage.
What is the Expected Plot of The Watcher Season 2?
As we said, there were initial reports that The Watcher would be released as a limited series on Netflix, which means that there are chances that the second season will feature an entirely new storyline.
However, nothing is confirmed at this point and everything is a mere speculation. There are rumors that the second season will focus on an entirely different haunted stalker house. So, we could witness a completely different set of cast in the show.
If we had to speculate the plot of The Watcher Season 2, there are two ways this could go:
- The story might continue with 657 Boulevard with the focus on a new family placed quite into the future.
- The story might focus on a spin of the storyline from the first season, citing the origin story of 657.
So, at this point, it is pretty much impossible to predict which way the storyline could go for The Watcher Season 2. If you ask us, we have a feeling that the Watcher Season 2 will pretty much introduce us to a whole new storyline and cast.
Even Jennifer Coolidge revealed in December 2022 that they haven’t been asked about returning to the show’s second season, which goes to show that there are high chances that the show won’t be returning with the old cast in the second season. The remaining cast hasn’t discussed anything about the second season yet as well.
Who will be cast in The Watcher Season 2?
If the speculations are correct and The Watcher Season 2 releases with an entirely new storyline, there are 100% chances that the cast of the show will be different too.
However, in case that isn’t the case and the cast from Season 1 returns, we will see the following line-up in the show:
- Naomi Watts
- Bobby Cannavale
- Isabel Gravitt
- Luke David Blumm
- Jennifer Coolidge
- Margo Martindale
- Richard Kind
- Mia Farrow
- Terry Kinney
- Christopher McDonald
- Joe Mantello
- Henry Hunter Hall
This includes the primary cast list and the remaining will be updated as official news from the show’s second season is released. Keep in mind that this is a rumored cast list if the stars from the first season make a comeback.
Is there a Trailer for The Watcher Season 2?
As of writing this, The Watcher Season 2 has only been renewed for the second season. Besides that, there have been no updates from Netflix or the showrunners regarding the show’s second season and the tentative release date.
What we’d recommend you do in the meantime is look out for the first season. Check out the trailer and the episodes that aired in the first season. In case the show returns as an extrapolation of the story of the first season, you’d need to catch up with things before the official release.
Where can I watch The Watcher Season 2?
The first season of The Watcher aired on Netflix for streaming. The same is the case with The Watcher Season 2 as well. This means that even the second season will air on Netflix. What we’d recommend you do is buy a subscription to Netflix to get things sorted.
The Watcher Season 2 has been renewed for a new season but there are no updates about the official release date yet. If you are looking forward to entering into a new world of crime, thriller, and suspense, we’d suggest you binge-watch the first season until the second one is released.
