And also the family seems to be completely destroyed (apart) from the society because of a doubt that one of them from a family is a killer.

Release Date of Season 2
Will there be Defending Jacob Season 2?
Till now there is no announcement or renewal update given by Apple Tv+ and it seems like Defending Jacob is not returning for Season 2.
As it is cleared above that Defending Jacob is a Miniseries and entire story of Landay’s book is covered in Season 1 in total 8 episodes, so till the end of 2021 there is no chance that the show will return.
And also season 1 comes out in 2020 and since 2020, 1 year has passed and still, there are no words from the Producers related with Season 2 of the Defending Jacob.
However, prior the show is meant to be a movie as it is a miniseries tv show. And the show creator and the writer speaking with the Deadline said that:
“It was sent to me by [production company] Anonymous Content with the idea it would be a film.”
“I was thinking this was going to be an uphill battle making this a film…so I called them back and said I’m not interested in doing a film…but I would love to try and do a limited series version of it.”
See What Happened in the Finale of Last Season?
In the finale you saw, Jacob’s case is dismissed without any judgement given to him whether he has murdered his classmate or not.
Last episode focused on the family and they met with an accident while thinking of the last problems faced by them. In the end of the episode we see Jacob is in coma, Laurie is injured and they both are hospitalised.
Cast Members of Season 2
If the Defending Jacob Season extend then we will expect that these members will be back from the Defending Jacob Cast-
- Chris Evans as Andy Barber.
- Michelle Dockery as Laurie Barber.
- Jaeden Martell as Jacob Barber.
- J.K. Simmons as William as Billy Barber.
Other cast members who could join, if the show renewed for 2nd season are-
- Cherry Jones as Joanna Klein.
- Betty Gabriel as Pam Duffy.
- Pablo Schreiber as Neal Logiudice.
- Sakina Jaffrey as Lynn Canavan.
As everything is covered in Season 1 of Defending Jacob and the Story of Novel is presented in a good and attractive way also which means there is no material left for the 2nd season.
But we can expect that writers may continue the story from Jacob’s Coma and his life after that.
Or they add new members in the series by connecting those with Jocob’s life and finding out the murderer in this new series.
Give your suggestions in the comment box regarding what will be the new story in the Season 2 according to you.
Will Season 2 come up with Jacob coming out of Coma? Whether they find out the real murderer in Season 2?
