‘Reckoning’ is an Australian thriller drama that explores the darkest aspects of the male psyche. It is about two fathers, one of them a serial killer, and the other a cop — hell-bent on catching a murderer suspected of killing a high school kid. Directed by Shawn Seet, Jennifer Leacey, and Peter Andrikidis, ‘Reckoning’, following its release in New Zealand in 2019, was well-received by fans. It was then made available for the US audience in May 2020. In case you are wondering if there will ‘Reckoning’ season 2 release, here’s everything we know.
Reckoning Season 2 Release Date
‘Reckoning’ season 1 premiered on May 1, 2020, on Netflix, in all its entirety of 10 episodes. Now, as far as its next season goes, the story seems to have wrapped up in the first season itself. We finally get to witness our cop being able to trace his prey after having missed multiple coincidences in the past. Worthwhile to mention here is also the fact that the series was dubbed as a miniseries. So does this mean it is the end of the addictive psychological thriller?
Well, until the creators release an official statement, we cannot say ‘yes’ with certainty. They might still decide to go ahead with a revamped storyline. If they do decide to renew the show for a second edition (although that seems to be a rare possibility), we can expect ‘Reckoning’ season 2 to release sometime in 2022.
Reckoning Season 2 Cast: Who Can be in it?
‘Reckoning’ is headlined by Aden Young (‘Rectify’ and ‘The Disappearance‘) as Mike Serrato (a homicide detective), and Sam Trammell (‘True Blood‘ and ‘The Fault In Our Stars‘) as Leo Doyle (a high school guidance counselor). Alongside the lead stars, we also have a stellar roster of supporting actors, including Simone Kessell, Laura Gordon, Gloria Garayua, and Anthony Phelan, among others.
As long as the plot of a supposed season 2 is not revealed, we cannot say which of the above cast members will be making a comeback. We will update this section as and when we receive further news.
Reckoning Season 2 Plot: What Can it be About?
Leo Doyle and Mike Serrato are two fathers, with only one dream — protect the families they love. But when a teen named Gretchen McGrath is murdered, the clues point to the Russian River Killer aka RRK. The case becomes the responsibility of homicide detective Mike, who has been hunting the serial killer for the last two decades. But when Leo becomes a prime suspect, Mike starts obsessing over how to trap him.
The show’s official synopsis describes the story as follows and gives us a better understanding of the plot: “But as they both struggle to suppress their inner demons, the murder of a local teenager sets them on a course of mutual destruction that will emanate through every facet of their quiet, suburban community.”
Season 1 ends on a nearly conclusive note and if a potential season 2 happens, we can expect the writers to approach a different storyline.
