Originally billed as a miniseries, The Outsider revolves around a man who’s a prime suspect in a gruesome murder.

Will there be a season 2 of The Outsider?

Had you asked us this question a year earlier, we would’ve said the same thing as today – YES! 


Yes, the chances of The Outsider getting a season 2 are high – in fact, the writers are already working on the second season. Writer Richard Price stated, “It’s like pulling a rabbit out of a glass hat—of course, there will be another [if HBO wants one],” he said. “There’s no such thing as a series that, if it does well, they’re not going to want a second season.”


So you guys, stay positive and keep up with the tweets if y’all want a renewal sooner. The series is in the making – however, it hasn’t been confirmed officially. We expect the official confirmation will be made soon, and we will (obviously) inform y’all when it does. Stay tuned!

The Outsider season 2 release date

We don’t have the release date for The Outsider season two, as the makers have yet to officially confirm its renewal. As soon as the official premiere date announcement for the second season of The Outsider is made, we will inform you all here. Stay connected!

What is the storyline of The Outsider?

‘The Outsider’ is a spine-chilling crime, drama, and fantasy series that encompasses the life of a man named Terry Maitland, who becomes a prime suspect in a gruesome murder of a young boy Franklin Peterson. 

The Outsider season 2 cast: Who will be in it?

Here’s who is expected to return for season 2 of The Outsider:

  • Ben Mendelsohn will return as Det. Ralph Anderson
  • Jason Bateman will return as Terry Maitland
  • Marc Menchaca will return as Jack Hoskins
  • Julianne Nicholson will return as Glory Maitland
  • Mare Winningham will return as Jeannie Anderson
  • Paddy Considine (The Third Day) will return as Claude Bolton
  • Bill Camp will return as Howard Salomon
  • Cynthia Erivo will return as Holly Gibney
  • Jeremy Bobb will return as Alec Pelley
  • Yul Vazquez will return as Yunis Sablo

What to expect from the plot of The Outsider season two?

The Outsider season 2 plot will encompass how one man who’s guilty of murder is innocent at the same time. Or is he really innocent? 


In The Outsider season 1, all the evidence points to Terry, but he claims he’s got absolutely nothing to do with Franklin’s death. The string of events that follow the case is even more intriguing as the whole town is (literally) thrown off balance by the weird happenings. Besides, with the most recent events, everybody starts to think Terry is indeed innocent, and somebody else is framing him. 


The second season’s plot will prove whether Terry Maitland is innocent or guilty. Whatever the answer shall be, it’s going to be one helluva ride!
