The first season of ‘Hollywood’ has set the bar quite high, we admit. The new bet by Netflix and Ryan Murphy is a wonder that we have enjoyed the pull this weekend. For starters, the series has a talented cast including Darren Criss, Laura Harrier, Holland Taylor, Jim Parsons, and Patti LuPone, to name a few.
In addition, the series is a complete criticism of Hollywood today and that of the 1940s, (have things really changed that much?) So people already want the platform to renew the program for a second season.
Despite our enthusiasm, Ryan Murphy recently commented that he is very interested in creating miniseries now, so we may never see this new installment of ‘Hollywood’. “I think it’s better.
I think it’s a more focused and powerful form of storytelling,” Murphy told OprahMag.com Even so, in case it is renewed, here we will tell everything you should know about the second season of this glamorous series.
For now, there has been no confirmation that we are going to have a second season, although we pray to all the Gods of Netflix to renew it.
In the event that this occurs, the plot could return to the characters where we left them, succeeding in Hollywood and filming ‘Dreamland’, the first film that would show a gay romance on screen.
While we would love this, another option would be to do as in ‘American Horror Story’ and start a story from scratch with new characters. In any case, the series ended with a clear “The Beginning” (the beginning) that replaced the mythical “The End” (the end) that we always saw in classic Hollywood movies.
‘Hollywood’ season 2, release date
Considering that all the filming is stopped right now due to the pandemic we are experiencing, it is likely that we will not see a new season of Hollywood for quite some time.
‘Hollywood’ season 2, cast
You can get actors who are willing to do seven episodes, but it is very difficult to get someone like Patti LuPone, Joe Mantello or even Darren Criss to be seven years in a television program,” said Murphy after clarifying that the cast of ‘Hollywood’ he only signed the contract for one season.
It seems like we’ll have to wait a bit to see if they sign for a second one. In the series, everyone has a happy ending, even characters based on real figures like Rock Hudson, Anna May Wong, and Hattie McDaniel.
They all end up successful and even in love, even the villains have a semi-redemptive arch. Although this could be the absolute end of the series, if this is as expected, it could be renewed and surprise us with new stories. Recall the case of ‘Big Little Lies’, mini-series that was renewed for a second installment.
