Created by Tara Hernandez and Damon Lindelof, Peacock’s sci-fi drama, ‘Mrs. Davis’ is set in the near future, where an all-knowing algorithm has taken over the world and turned it into a better place. While most people are content with following it unconditionally, there are people like Sister Simone and Preston Wiley who believe that the world needs to be rid of the algorithm. This quest takes them through a thrilling journey that reveals many secrets. The first season ends with a thrilling finale. If you loved the show and are wondering whether it will have another season, here’s what you should know.
Will Mrs. Davis Season 2 Happen?
‘Mrs. Davis’ Season 1 premiered on Peacock on April 20, 2023. The first four episodes were released together, while the rest were released weekly, with the finale premiering on May 18, 2023. All episodes are about an hour long. The series received critical acclaim, with the praise directed towards its genre-bending storytelling and the performances of the lead actors. The show has also received a good response from the viewers, which means the show is likely to get another season. As of now, no official announcements have been made about it.
In May, ‘Mrs. Davis’ was submitted for Emmy in the category of Best Limited Series. Previously, it was considered under the Drama or Comedy category. However, the unique mix of the two made it difficult for the show to be put into a particular box. Thus, the limited series category suited it better, and it was submitted under that category. Now that ‘Mrs. Davis’ is officially under the Limited Series category, the chances of continuing the story with the second season have been scrapped. However, this doesn’t mean we can’t get a second season.
The premise of ‘Mrs. Davis’ allows it to have different stories set in the same world. According to creators Tara Hernandez and Damon Lindelof, the show’s first season was always supposed to go through a complete arc that would give it “a conclusive and satisfying ending.” This means that the second season could pick up with a different storyline, turning it into an anthology series where a new season comes with a new plot and a different set of characters. In his interviews, Lindelof has cited shows like ‘The White Lotus,’ which has succeeded in this format. This sets a precedent for shows like ‘Mrs. Davis’ allows them to stay in the same universe but explore it through different perspectives.
There has been word on whether the creators want to make another season of ‘Mrs. Davis’, but should they consider the possibility, it could be with an entirely different cast. One of the defining things of the storytelling in ‘Mrs. Davis’ is how it walks the line between sci-fi and religion, and we expect a similar tone in its following season. This also means that the cast could be different or follow a character who was too obscure to notice or had been on the sidelines in the first season.
As for the plot, we don’t believe that we’ll go back to Wiley and Simone. Their story has been tied up too neatly to unravel the whole thing again. Instead, it could be a different person sent on a new quest by Mrs. Davis. The show could also go back in time and follow a character like Father Ziegler. He comes up with the idea of stealing the Holy Grail for the first time. Was it because he wanted Mathilde’s attention, or did Mrs. Davis put him up to this?
The possibilities are endless regarding the next step for ‘Mrs. Davis’. Considering the weird and entertaining first season, we expect the show’s creators to have something equally, if not more, shocking, dramatic, and funny in store for the audience. With all this in mind, if ‘Mrs. Davis’ is renewed for a second season, we expect it to release sometime in 2025.
