An immediate smash for Lifetime, Buried in Barstow! Angie Harmon (Rizzoli & Isles, Law & Order) and Kristoffer Polaha (Jurassic World Dominion, Mystery 101) wowed the audience with their performances. There are plenty of twists and turns in this hot journey.
A significant cliffhanger, however, finished the film. Fans are now wondering whether there will be a continuation of Buried in Barstow. Polaha fans are particularly a bit worried, given the unsolved Mystery 101 cliffhanger.
We’ve got you covered, Lifetime. They will not leave anybody in the lurch.
All You Need To Know About Part 1
Previously on buried in Barstow, Hazel is in Barstow, California, and seems to live a quiet life there. She owns a BBQ restaurant and is raising her daughter Joy (Lauren Richards). It’s a long way from her old life in Las Vegas, where she was a teenage heroin addict picked up off the streets and turned into a cold-blooded hit woman.
Hazel left her violent life behind when she became pregnant with her daughter. But now, after almost 20 years, her past has caught up with her. Her old boss, played by her Rizzoli & Isles co-star Bruce McGill, calls her back to Vegas to do one more job. Back in Barstow, she goes to great lengths to protect Joy from a bad boyfriend while getting involved with a stranger named Elliot (Kristoffer Polaha) who comes to town for unknown reasons.
There’s a big cliffhanger at the end of the movie. Hazel finds out that Elliot was working for her old boss, whom he met in prison. But before she can confront him, she stops a kidnapping in progress and is shot outside her diner. Travis (Timothy Granaderos), her daughter’s abusive boyfriend, turned out not to be dead after all. He goes back to Barstow, and Joy seems eager to start talking to him again.
Is It Getting A Sequel?
Buried in Barstow is Lucky for viewers, they don’t have to worry that they’ll never see the next part of Hazel’s story. Lifetime has said that the movie is the first in a series, and Harmon has confirmed that work on the next movie has already started. She hopes that her character as a hitwoman-turned-waitress could be in at least six movies.
Harmon told Smashing Interviews Magazine, “I don’t know the exact number.” “I’d like there to be between six and eight of them, and I hope we can get there. I did see more of a series in this. But I like how Tom Evans, who wrote the script for the movie, sees it as two-hour movie segments. But I’m not sure. Maybe if people keep liking them, we’ll keep making them. Hopefully. We start shooting the next one in early June.”
