In the latest Netflix series, superstar TV producer Ryan Murphy successfully portrays Hollywood life in the 1940s as the series follows a group of up and coming talents trying to make it to stardom in the industry.
Hollywood was initially created as a one release series with no sequels or further seasons. However, its booming popularity has brought discussions of a second season to the table. Here’s everything we know so far!
Release Date of Hollywood Season 2
No confirmation has been made as yet regarding the next installment. But Ryan Murphy has expressed interest in continuing the series.
Answering a fan’s question regards this on Instagram, Murphy replied that the show was initially made as a limited series. He further said, “but it’s become so popular that everyone is asking for another season. So who knows? I sure do love this cast, though.”
So all hope is not lost yet! Stay tuned for the latest updates on this show!
Cast: Who to Expect?
If the show is renewed for a second season, then fans may expect many of the previous cast members to return, especially with how much Murphy enjoyed working with them.
We might see David Corenswet, Jeremy Pope, and Darren Criss return as the trio of Hollywood hustlers. Fans can also expect Laura Harrier and Patty LuPone, who made their path to Oscar gold during the first season’s ending.
Other members to expect include Samara Weaving, Holland Taylor, and Dylan McDermott.
Hollywood Season 2: What Will Happen Next?
Murphy’s world of fantasy 1940s Hollywood is way more progressive than how it was in reality. But will it remain that way?
A second instalment could mean more content pushing for resistance against the patriarchy, discrimination of women, of POC, and the LGBTQ+ community.
It could also delve into the dark side of what it means to have fame. Ramond, Camille, Jack, and Archie have worked hard for their success, but history has shown us how damaging glory can also be.
To continue the story of Hollywood, Murphy and his co-creator Ian Brennan are looking further reimagine the actual history of Hollywood to fit the new, more tolerant landscape they’ve envisioned.
As Hollywood was initially to be produced as a limited series, so now we don’t even know that the creators, Murphy and Brennan have anything for the plot that far ahead.
The 2020 Emmy nominations further made sure that it is a limited series because Actors Jeremy Pope, Dylan McDermott, Jim Parson, and Holland Taylor all received nominations in their respective “limited series or movie” categories.
