HBO Chief Casey Bloys says that everything is up in the air right now, but ultimately the decision would come down to creator Brad Ingelsby.
Hot on the heels of arguably the best TV shows of 2021, everyone is wondering whether a 'Mare of Easttown' season two could eventually get the green light.
While the season finale of the HBO drama wrapped everything up nicely, catching the killer of Erin McMenamin, and having Kate Winslet's Mare finally accept her son's bereavement, we can't help but feel the need to the return to the sleepy Pennsylvanian town.
HBO Chief Casey Bloys said to Variety about a possible return to the drama: "If Brad felt like he had a story to tell that felt like it would be at the same level, I think everybody would be open to it. Right now, he doesn’t have that story. Who knows? We’ll have to wait to see if they come up with something they’re dying to tell.
"Usually we take the lead from our creators. There’s been no real conversations about what a 'Mare of Easttown' season two would look like."
Creator of the series, Brad Ingelsby, spoke last week on the topic. He said that although the series was written as a limited run, should he and Kate Winslet "crack a story", "then maybe" a second season is possible.
Winslet told TVLine following the finale: "I would absolutely love to play Mare again. I miss her. I really do. It’s the strangest thing. I feel like I’m in mourning.
"It was an absolutely wonderful role… There’s something very addictive about Mare, because she’s so outrageous and lovable and brilliant and real, you know? I loved playing her."
Series creator Brad Inglesby, who worked on 'The Way Back' and 'American Woman', recently signed an overall TV deal with HBO.
