‘High Fidelity’ is a romantic dramedy that centers on Robin Brooks, a record store owner, who believes that she is doomed to face rejection and abandonment in relationships because of the emotional damage she has suffered from one of her many failed relationships. Rob soon embarks on a vision quest, to find the one that broke her heart and also to reflect on her past mistakes.
The show is a re-imagining of the eponymous 2005 film and British author Nick Hornby’s 1995 novel, from a female perspective. The first season of ‘High Fidelity’ was well received by the critics with critical consensus being, “Though it skips the occasional beat, High Fidelity’s fresh take on a familiar track is as witty as it is emotionally charged, giving Zoe Kravitz plenty of room to shine.”
Now in case you are wondering: will there be a ‘High Fidelity’ season 2, here’s everything we know.
High Fidelity Season 2 Release Date: When Will it Premiere?
‘High Fidelity’ season 1 released on February 14, 2020, on Hulu. It features a total of ten episodes with a runtime of 30 minutes each.
As far as the next season goes, here’s what we know. The show was originally scheduled to release on Disney+, but was later moved to Hulu to allow the creators more artistic freedom. While that decision may not be indication of renewal in itself, but it does show the trust Disney has placed on the makers of the show. And now, with great reception of the first season and a set of established characters, it is hard to imagine, the show not getting a renewal. Our best guess is that if greenlit soon, ‘High Fidelity’ season 2 could release sometime in February 2021.
