HBO has not failed to deliver yet another astonishing show. The Outsider concluded its first installment, and fans are already waiting for another one. There have been hints from the producer indicating that they have begun their work for season two.
The first installment of The Outsider released in January 2020 is based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name. It instantly became a hit on HBO. It is produced and developed by Jason Bateman and Richard Price. The ending of the first chapter indicated a possibility of season two. With that kind of cliff-hanger, we all hope to see another installment. Will we ever know if Holly is infected? Is El Cuco dead?
The Outsider Season 2 Cast: Who Will Be In It?
After seeing so many characters die, we hope to see Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline) as Ralph Anderson and Cynthia Erivo (Harriet) as Holly Gibney. Besides them, we may see Yul Vazquez (Russian Doll) as Yunis Sablo and Paddy Considine (Informer) as Claude Bolton.
So far, it is unclear who will star in the second season. Since so many characters died in the first installment, there may be new characters joining in the second installment. However, we will only know for sure when an announcement is made.
What will the Outsider season 2 plot be?
The installment one finale kind of wrapped up El Cuco’s story. However, the post-credit scene indicated that the monster might infect Holly. This part was not included in the novel. Hence, it made way for another installment.
It was unclear if El Cuco really died. The Outsider season two may follow Holly on her quest to find more answers who has just started sinking into the supernatural affairs. It will be interesting to see if she is infected since she is now seeing apparitions and has a scratch.
Ralph may continue following on the Frankie Peterson investigation so that Terry Maitland’s name is cleared. Since he also believes in the paranormal world now, he may also look for more answers to find what is lurking out there. Since Ralph’s beliefs are different, will he try to find a way to bring his dead son back to life? It will be interesting to see where the show proceeds from here.
Price has teased that El Cuco may be alive, and this could become a reason for Holly and Ralph to go on more adventures in the second installment. Nevertheless, the possibility of The Outsider season two happening is high, given the response it has received.

The Outsider Season 2 Release Date: When Will It Premiere?
So far, HBO has not given the green light to another segment. Although the producers of the show have indicated that they will be willing to make another installment based on HBO’s will. In an interview, Jason Bateman mentioned that Richard Price is going around some ideas and taking some steps as to what the second year might look like.
Since the first installment thoroughly used the contents of the novel, this season is really up to the writers. However, if the second installment gets a green light, we may likely see it in early or mid-2021, depending on how the script and schedule work out for the team.
