Alert to Spoilers: This article includes spoilers for The Essex Serpent book and Apple TV+ series
Sarah Parrya''s 2016 novel, which was previously included on The Sunday Times bestsellers list, was immensely successful. Based on an exploration of a mythical sea creature that might lurk around the Essex coast, The Essex Serpent is set to grip fantasy, mythology, and history buffs alongside those who are already interested in it. But will There be a Season 2 of The Essex Serpent?
The screen adaptation is a six-part limited series, suggesting that the entire story arc will start and close within one season per Deadline. Itas less probable the story will continue until a second season, if the first season ends as the book did.
Itas also not unheard of for television programs to take off where the original book was left off. After a fantastic run, The Essex Serpent novel comes to a close, starring Cora (played by Claire Danes) who is still seeking her married girlfriend (William, played by Tom Hiddleston) who lives in Essex with his sick wife.
After the arealitya of an old wivesa tale (the Blackwater Beast) gains traction, unxplained events begin to take place and fear crashes through the small village and town. However, less frightening anormala explanations emerge. This may be an ideal start for a second season to pick up from, bolstering the Blackwater Beast''s hysteria once more.
However, neither writer Anna Symon nor director Clio Barnard have yet to comment on whether The Essex Serpent will play for a second series. So maybe The Essex Serpent (inspired by a 17th century British myth) is just the beginning, even without a confirmed second season.
