Here’s everything we know about the Anatomy of a Scandal’s future.
Anatomy of a Scandal Season 2: Expected Release Date
There are two pieces of news for the audience regarding season 2. First and foremost, the show was introduced as a limited series- which usually means one and done. But in contrast, it is labeled as an anthology series too, which means each season focuses on a different scandal.
As of this writing, Netflix has not renewed the show; the show must be a huge hit to get a second season on Netflix. Therefore, assuming the show lives up to the network’s expectations and is renewed within the coming few months, viewers can anticipate ‘Anatomy of Scandal season 2 to premiere in 2023.
Anatomy of a Scandal Season 2: The Expected Cast
If the show returns for a second season as an anthology series, then it’s pretty likely that an entirely new cast will be bought on board for a brand-new story. The concluding episode of the show completed the entire plot, except for one character, Kate Woodcroft (played by Michelle Dockery), whose story didn’t quite get its closure.
As season 1 ends with Kate, suited up for a new trial staring at the camera, there are high chances that she might also return for the next season.
But more details will follow, only when a season 2 is officially confirmed.
Anatomy of a Scandal Season 2: The Expected Plot
As mentioned above, Anatomy of a Scandal was always meant to be a one-and-done show in that it will only have one season to conclude the entire series. But there is a catch here. While the original show is not meant to return for one season, the good news is that there is still a chance for the series to return in an anthology.
The first season focuses on rape accusations by a political aide who was having an affair with a high-flying MP. The end of the season established the charge to be accurate, with James’s wife, Sophie Whitehouse, leaving him after she discovers that, despite his not guilty conviction in court, he had a history of sexual assault.
Sophie also leaked a story about the Prime Minister and his previous scandals. It was also revealed that James was one of those who covered up what the PM did in the past.
Whether season 2 will focus on the scandal that Sophie leaked at the end of the series or what the second season will delve into cannot be speculated as of now, as the show’s future is literally up to the writers.
