Briarpatch is based on Ross Thomas’s novel of the same name. It concluded airing its first season in April 2020 and fans are wondering if there is going to be another season for the show or not. Let’s get into the details and find out everything we know so far.
Released in February 2020, Briarpatch revolved around Allegra Hill who decides to investigate the mystery behind her sister Detective Felicity Dill’s death. The show received a good response from the critics. However, it didn’t do very well with the fans. While some liked it, others who were not sure.
Is there Briarpatch season 2?
So far, USA Network has made no announcements regarding the renewal or cancellation of the show. At the same time, the show suffered from mixed responses. The show had around 0.49 million people tuning into the show per episode. It averaged a 0.14 rating in the 18-49 demographic
When the first episode aired 528,000 viewers viewed it, and the rating was 0.9 in the 18-49 demography. But when the second episode aired, the rating dropped even lower. The network tried to save the show by changing the time slot to Monday’s at 11 pm. However, this also didn’t prove to be any good for them.
With this, the chances of the show coming back are quite slim. When it comes to anthology series, it isn’t easy to predict. While some go on for a long time like Black Mirror and American Horror Story, some get canceled after the first season. Since there has been no announcement of the show yet, we can only hope to see it on screens again.

Briarpatch Season 1 Recap: What Happened?
The show revolved around Allegra trying to find the person who killed her sister. Felicity Dill was killed in a car bombing. While struggling to find the killer, Allegra starts unraveling a more profound secret, the web of corruption in the system.
In the finale, we saw Allegra and A.D. were set to execute their plan to get Holder back. However, as a part of the deal, Jake was supposed to tell Eve that immunity was off the table. But he did the opposite and told her everything about Allegra’s plan.
However, in the end, when Allegra was leaving town, she decided to stop at her family home where she ended up meeting Jake. He revealed that he was the one who called Felicity and helped her. Since he didn’t want to get any more involved, he told Eve about Felicity and caused more problems.
It was also revealed that Eve was all along fighting to bring justice and change the fate of the town, but while doing so, she became corrupt as well. (check: Netflix’s Dracula Season 2 Release Date, Cast, Trailer, Plot, Episodes and Everything Else To Know.)
Cyrus burnt all of the evidence, and Cindy signed the Quitclaim Deed for her apartment. And finally, Allegra found what she had been looking for all along.
While the show was criticized, the ending was really well written and put all of the plotlines together and made it worth the time. (check: Netflix’s Wakfu Season 4 Release Date, Cast, Plot, Trailer and Everything Else So Far About Anime.)
