Is The Underground Railroad Season 2 Release Date Confirmed?


Frightening and stunningly stunning, The Underground Railroad is a must-watch series on Amazon Prime. The novel The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead follows the narrative of a slave named Cora Randall who tries to escape from a plantation in Georgia.

This show can be difficult to watch at times, but that's part of its charm. We are reminded that history isn't always pleasant. The shadows of the past are too important to be forgotten. Barry Jenkins's cinematography tells the story in a stunning way. The way the story finishes has, without a question, left us wanting more. Because, after all, we have no idea if Cora makes it to freedom at the end of the novel, either.


We've compiled the information we have thus far about Season 2 of The Underground Railroad.

Is The Underground Railroad Season 2 Release Date Confirmed?

The continuation of this show into a second season has not been confirmed as of yet. There is a very slim chance that it will take place given that its scope was supposed to be constrained in the first place.

However, it is not possible to make any changes to the plans because the run time of Big Little Lies was originally supposed to be short but was ultimately prolonged. Therefore, even if it's not very likely, there is always a possibility for regeneration.

In point of fact, the occurrence of something is extremely improbable. There is currently no reliable information available concerning the second season of The Underground Railroad Series so the release date is not yet available.

Which Cast Members Could Return in Season 2?

Thuso Mbedu must return as Cora Randall if the show is renewed. After all, the story was primarily hers, with a few others interspersed for context and insight. Or, they may tell someone else's tale and hope to learn that Cora made it to safety eventually. This could pave the way for the other season one character to make an appearance, especially in the places Cora visited.

If the cast members of season 1 returned then we may expect:

  • Chase W. Dillon as Homer
  • Fred Hechinger as Young Arnold Ridgeway
  • Mychal-Bella Bowman as Fanny Briggs/Grace
  • Joel Edgerton as Arnold Ridgeway
  • Sheila Atim as Mabel
  • Peter Mullan as Ridgeway Senior
  • Aaron Pierre as Caesar Garner
  • Lily Rabe as Ethel Wells
  • Calvin Leon Smith as Jasper
  • Amber Gray as Gloria Valentine

What Could Happen in The Underground Railroad Season 2?

The season one finale was tense and left viewers wanting more. Mabel retreated to a nearby swamp following the murders of her best friend and the two infants left in her care after the delivery of a stillborn child.

Understanding where she was and that she had abandoned her young kid helped her accept her situation. She never made it back to Cora after being bitten by a snake in the swamp and dying of the poison. No one did; not even the slave-catcher Ridgeway, portrayed by Joel Edgerton.

If there is a second season, I have no doubt that the plot will be even better. The upcoming season will have a more complex plot and a plethora of unexpected turns. While we wait, we can see what the filmmakers have in store for us.

The fate of a second season is unknown at this time because Amazon Prime has not made any official announcements to that effect. As a result, we won't be able to provide you with a comprehensive synopsis. If the streaming provider agrees to give the show another season, the best option would be to follow another character's story and reveal that Cora ultimately achieved her freedom. The plot from the first season will be continued as well, as was previously announced.

What Are the Chances of Season 2 Happening?

Since Underground Railroad was advertised as a limited series, a continuation of the show is quite doubtful. Jenkins told Town & Country that he had always thought a limited series would be the greatest vehicle for telling Whitehead's Pulitzer Prize–winning story.

At the time, Jenkins explained to Whitehead, “I realized that a lot of people were probably talking to Colson about The Underground Railroad,”  This was in 2016, when Jenkins initially proposed his concept. “I remember being pretty straightforward, saying, ‘I don’t want to make this as a feature film. I want to do it as a limited series. I think that’s the best way in terms of conveying the scope of the book to the screen.’ I think Colson appreciated me being upfront in that way.”

In addition, Jenkins mentioned that the show's plot was developed rapidly.  “We had a very short, eight-week room; it was myself and four other writers. It was very intense. We tried to cover a lot of ground,” he said. “We pitched the show to Amazon twice in eight weeks, front to back.” He added that they would call Whitehead occasionally for his input, but “the book is so good [that] the map was there” for them to follow — and to diverge from in key places.
