A part of Apple’s highly anticipated original projects, ‘Home,’ premiered in April 2020. The documentary series puts the spotlight on some of the most ingenious and ultra-modern homes around the world. It managed to garner the attention of the fans of the home design genre as it lies in a similar vein as ‘The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes,’ and ‘Most Incredible Homes.’ Season 1 was well-received by critics and audiences for its cinematography, production design, score and the unique approach to the genre. Now fans want to know when will ‘Home’ season 2 release. Here’s everything we know.
Home Season 2 Release Date
‘Home’ season 1 premiered in its entirety on April 17, 2020, on AppleTV+. It consists of nine episodes with a runtime of 30 minutes each. The Apple Original was initially slated for a debut at 2020 SXSW Film Festival but was pulled at the last moment due to COVID-19 concerns.
With the release of ‘Home,’ Apple dived into the world of interior design and architecture for the first time. Owing to the positive response, we believe the network might give the show another shot. And if the it crosses the viewership yardstick set by Apple, the show might get recommissioned for a second season, which might feature some more remarkable properties across the globe. If and when that happens, we can expect ‘Home’ season 2 to release sometime in 2021, on AppleTV+.
