Dublin Murders Season 2: Is It Renewed For The Next Season?
In January 2020, Starz’s CEO and president, Jeffrey Hirsch, teased that they desire a second run. Jeffrey continued that the show performed well on their network. Further, the viewers grew from the beginning to the end of the show, which implies that the show has achieved tremendous success and popularity on the network.

Thus, they are trying to figure out everything. Further, the president continued that they are hopeful to continue the second season and currently to talk with the series creator.
Kate Harwood Concern For The Second Run
It seems that Euston Films boss Kate Harwood has been concerned about the second season. Kate admitted that it had always been a big challenge to bring big-budget drama to screen. However, they are trying their best to get it back. Further, Kate discussed that it took quite a long time to acquire Tana French’s books’ rights. So, it might take more time than it seems to return with the second season.
Boss Counting On Sarah Phelps Schedule
Currently, they all are counting on Sarah Phelps’ scheduled to begin the following season. Kate continued that the BBC has always been on their side from the time when they wanted to continue the second season to waiting for Sarah.
However, it’s worth waiting as Sarah’s has also penned Agatha Christie adaptations, including And Then There Were None and The Witness For The Prosecution. Well, these two had BBC One’s hit series earning 4 million viewers per episode. Thus, when you have a star writer, then you have to continue with their schedule.
