The Jamie Dornan starrer series, The Tourist, recently concluded its first season’s premiere. The series received a favorable IMDb Rating of 6.1/10. Chris Sweeney served as the director of this six-part series, and Lisa Scott produced it. The first season was internationally co-produced.
The Tourist is definitely a riveting BBC thriller, and as the first season has ended, there is the burning question, “will there be a season 2?” The series follows its primary character, “The Man,” who falls victim to a car crash.
When he wakes up, due to his amnesia, he does not remember anything which requires him to put the pieces together and seek out his identity while someone is consistently pursuing him. The BBC thriller received positive reviews, which brings us together to anticipate what next?
Is The Tourist Season 2 Really Happening?
Now that the first season has concluded, what lies ahead for the show? Is it canceled or up for renewal at BBC One? Currently, BBC has not made any announcements about a possible second season. However, the first season ended with a dramatic cliffhanger, assuming that another season may happen. Jamie Dornan also gave some interesting input about the show’s future.
Dornan acknowledges that there is a high demand for a second season. Given the high demand for a follow-up to season one, the show may have more in its store. Dornan added that things are a bit open-ended towards the end, and the viewers have any questions about it. He remarked that the response to the show has been insane, and many people have streamed it. The love for this BBC thriller is genuine.
Harry and Jack Williams, the show’s creators, also talked about another season. Harry said that he is ever-ready to make the show again for the viewers. He is, however not very sure if a season 2 is possible. So, while talking about the follow-up ambiguously, he opened up about a possibility. He further included that he was highly involved with The Tourist than any other show.
When can a Second Season Possibly Release?
Assuming that ‘The Tourist’ is put up for renewal immediately, a second season will not release anytime before 2023 beginning, at the very earliest. Writing, shooting, and editing the show, is an intense, time-taking task. And given that the show is internationally co-produced, it will take a whole lot of time. So, it is far from a guarantee, and only an official announcement can establish when we can expect it.
Who will be in the Cast of Season 2?
The fate of the amnesiac hero, ‘The Man,’ is left hanging towards the end of the first season, in the depressing finale. But, since Jamie Dornan has not rejected the suggestion of coming back to the show, he may make a comeback. However, that depends on how the plot is planned further.
And, if another season does come up, it would be a fair bet to expect Constable Helen Chambers being played by Danielle Macdonald and DI Lachlan Rogers by Damon Herriman. However, the characters of Alex Dimitriades, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, and Shalom Brune-Franklin were killed off in season one.
What will happen in Season 2?
The fate of Jamie Dornan’s character, ‘The Man,’ is left hanging in the air. Hence, the coming season will establish the fate of his character. However, at this point, since there is no news about official renewal, despite the hints in the backdrop, it is yet to be seen what course the second season will take.
