Created by Harry and Jack Williams, ‘Angela Black’ is a thriller series about a woman who is frequently oppressed by her violent husband, Olivier. Despite being a hardworking man who fends for his family, Olivier is also a harsh aggressor with a sinister past. The titular character is then approached by a man who claims to know all of her husband’s secrets.
The intense storytelling is brought to life by a compelling performance by Joanne Froggatt in the lead role. The show is lauded and loved by the audiences, who are now awaiting another season. If you’re curious about the same, here’s all that we know about a potential second season!
Angela Black Season 2 Release Date
‘Angela Black’ season 1 released in its entirety on February 7, 2022, on Spectrum. The first season has six episodes that run for around 60 minutes each. Before its release on the streaming platform, the show debuted on October 10, 2021, on the British network ITV.
With respect to the second season, here’s everything that we know. Its home network ITV has not released any updates about its renewal. It is to be noted that ‘Angela Black’ is essentially a six-part miniseries, which means it was conceived with just one season in mind. If we consider the final moments of the season one finale, Angela discovers Ed’s real identity and motive. She even outsmarts her husband as he finally gets arrested. Thus, the inaugural edition rounds up to a well-deserved ending.
In addition, star Joanne Froggatt (Angela) stated that the series was always meant to be six episodes long. When asked if it could extend to another season, the actress clarified that it is supposed to be a miniseries. She further stated that by the time the intense psychological thriller reaches its final episode, the narrative culminates into a satisfying conclusion. In the end, the viewers experience a climactic series of shocks and surprises and twists and turns, which is why the show will likely not require any revisiting.
However, we can’t be sure as several limited series have gotten renewed for more episodes. One example of such a show is ‘Liar,’ which stars Froggatt as Laura Nielson. Although the first season ends on a conclusive note, it continued to attract fans who did not want to part with the show; thus, it was renewed for a second installment. Hence, ‘Angela Black’ might return if it performs well and garners a massive fan following. If greenlit by the network, the series will spend 2-3 months in production. Considering these factors, we expect ‘Angela Black’ season 2 to release sometime in 2023.
Angela Black Season 2 Cast: Who can be in it?
If renewed, the second season might retain Joanne Froggatt in the titular role. We might also witness the return of Michiel Huisman, who stars as Angela’s violent husband, Olivier. Samuel Adewunmi portrays hitman Ed Harrison, whose actual identity is revealed to be Theo Walters. He might also reprise his role in the potential season 2. Other cast members who are expected to return include Clement Stokes (Sam Meyer), Seth Stokes (Max Meyer), Ashley McGuire (Judy), and Pippa Nixon (PC Chappelhow), among others.
Angela Black Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?
Season 1 introduces a wealthy family that lives and thrives in comfort. However, the truth is far from it. Angela is regularly abused by her husband, Olivier. The man then hires a hitman named Theo Walters, hoping to make Angela’s life hell. The hitman introduces himself as Ed and tries to frame her into investigating her husband so that she gets accused of meddling in his affairs.
Angela eventually manages to get Olivier arrested, and Theo ends up being haunted by past enemies. Hence, the prospective second season might feature a new enemy or challenge in Angela’s life. It is also likely that her husband might be released from prison and could cook up something dangerous, putting Angela’s life at stake.
