By that logic, I’ll start watching Netflix’s The Stranger in 2022, and The Stranger season 2 a year or two later… if indeed it does get made.
That’s right, The Stranger has only been out for the best part of a week, but people are already gagging for a second season of the show that sees a man learn that his married life has essentially all been a lie.
Based on a Harlan Coben novel of the same name, The Stranger follows:
“A web of secrets that send family man Adam Price on a desperate quest to discover the truth about the people closest to him.”
It’s all very cloak and dagger, but essentially the miserable guy from The Hobbit is told by the antagonist woman from Ant Man and The Wasp that his wife wasn’t pregnant when she said she was, which is what led to the two getting married.
Fans believe that the last episode would perfectly set things up for a second season, and as Netflix haven’t announced anything yet, they’re rallying to get that confirmed.
Sadly, it’s not looking great for season 2 though, as Coben has revealed that currently, there’s no overriding intention to carry the story on.
Speaking to The Radio Times, he said:
“It’s not our plan.
“Our plan is to give you one great, great season.”
It’s not the news that people wanted to hear, but it’s sadly the news they’re getting.
With that said, he did add in same interview that on e should “never say never…” which probably means it’s a question of supply and demand as well as the big boy; money.
Writers famously love money.
We’ll keep you updated…
