The series was much loved by the audience just like the paperback series from James Patterson, who is known for his thrillers and fictional stories. Although the series involves true crime stories, the response of the audience was pretty noteworthy.
However, neither James Patterson, Stephen David Entertainment or Discovery have made any official announcement of a second season but considering the hype the first season generated and the buzz around the acclaimed books, a second season may just be in the offing soon.
We estimate ‘Murder is Forever’ Season 2 to release sometime in 2020. For any update on the series and official statements about the release of the second season, you can follow this space.
