Has Stay Close Been Renewed for Another Season?
So, let’s get the bad news out of the way. As of now, Stay Close has not been renewed for another season. Stay Close Season 2 is currently not in the works, and we are unsure about the future of the series, however, there have been talks about the possibility, but according to sources, it seems unlikely at the moment. But let’s take a look at the silver lining. The season finale of Stay Close Season 1 left enough potential for there to be a second season. While the main murderer was arrested, there are a few more loose ends that need to be looked after, which could potentially be explored in Stay Close Season 2. Just like you, we are also keeping our fingers crossed for a piece of renewal news regarding a new season, because it hasn’t been canceled just yet.
What Is The Plot of Stay Close Season 2?
Since Stay Close Season 2 hasn’t been confirmed just yet, we don’t have an official synopsis or details regarding the plot. However, if you’re new to our website, let us tell you that doesn’t stop us from speculating and talking about theories. So, keep reading to find out more about our speculations regarding the plot of Stay Close Season 2.
The first season of Stay Close gave us our ultimate murderer, and it was gut-wrenching for several reasons. So while that mystery was solved, you might wonder what will happen in Stay Close Season 2, should it be made. We’re going to try and explain this without mentioning the name of the murderer, just so we don’t spoil the entire series for you. Nevertheless, while the murderer did confess to killing several men over the years, one of those confessions wasn’t really true. In fact, that puts Dave in trouble, and the only person who knows the secret is Megan, and only Megan, not even Dave knows what he’s done.
This was the perfect plot twist that seemed like a setup for Stay Close Season 2, so we’re almost certain that any future season will explore this secret in detail. Also, Megan and Dave are married now, but does that mean nothing would happen between Megan and Ray? There is a lot of unfinished business there, and we’ll surely be seeing more of them together. Lastly, Detective Broome. Probably the man who had the saddest ending in the first season, it will be interesting to see how he copes with that in Stay Close Season 2.
The Cast of Stay Close Season 2
Stay Close had some of the most brilliant and versatile actors and actresses, whose performances in this crime drama left us wanting more. There have been no official confirmations regarding who will return, but based on the last season, we can make our guesses. Cush Jumbo is bound to return as Megan Pierce, as she is the lead of the series in many ways. Joining her would be Daniel Francis as Dave Shaw, who will play a bigger part in Stay Close Season 2.
Rounding up the cast we have James Nesbitt as DS Michael Broome, Richard Armitage as Ray Levine, Jo Joyner as Erin Cartwright, Bethany Antonia as Kayleigh Shaw, and Youssef Kerkour as Fester.
It will be interesting to see if Sarah Parish returns for Stay Close Season 2, but we’d definitely love to see sweet Lorraine once again! Of course, there are a few characters who won’t be returning for Stay Close Season 2 since this is a crime drama and death is inevitable in shows like these, but we’re hoping to see a few fresh faces in any future seasons to stir the pot that’s brewing.
When and Where Can You Watch Stay Close Season 2?
As of now, there’s no release date for Stay Close Season 2, but since the first season was released towards the end of 2021, almost into 2022, maybe we can expect some concrete news regarding Stay Close Season 2 in the upcoming months, and if things go as we hope they would, a new season would be on screens by the end of 2023 or the start of 2024. As for where you can watch it, we are assuming Netflix will continue streaming any of Harlan Coben’s work because they would be at a great loss if they decided to drop it. So, hopefully, if and when Stay Close Season 2 does release, you will be able to stream it on Netflix.
Is There a Trailer for Stay Close Season 2?
Sadly, there won’t be an official trailer for Stay Close Season 2 until there is a release date and a whole of confirmation, but make sure you keep checking our website regarding any updates!
When it comes to streaming platforms, if something hasn’t been canceled yet, you can only hope that it will be renewed and that’s exactly how we feel about Stay Close Season 2. The first season had a few loose ends and we need some answers, and hopefully, the creators give us those! Have you watched Stay Close yet? Let us know in the comments what you think about the series!
