Kin Season 2: Renewal Status!
The first season of the Kin, which debuted on September 21, 2021, came to an end, with the season finale dropping on October 31, 2021. Now, we know that the show got officially renewed for a second installment in February 2022. It was confirmed to be in the AMC+’s lineup of the upcoming shows. However, nothing else is known about the production schedule and the release date of the upcoming second season. But taking a wild shot, our guess is the show can return with Kin Season 2 in mid to late 2023.
What Will Happen In Kin Season 2?
The first season of the series revolved around the feud between the Kinahan gang and the Hutch gang. Eamon’s long reign of terror came to an end with a gunshot in the riveting season one finale. Meanwhile, there are not many details available about the plot of the second season of the show. However, the showrunner Peter McKenna in an interview gave us something to talk about the Kin Season 2.
In a future season of the show, he stated that he wants to overhaul the family relationships completely. The first season centered primarily on one woman’s grief and the consequences of her loss. He’d like to focus on historical trauma in the next one. However, it will feature all of the trappings of the Gangland genre. According to Peter, if and when a second season is confirmed, “Kin” may become much darker and deeper than it has been thus far.
The Kinahan and Hutch gang’s real-life violence inspired “Kin.” In real life, the battle claimed the lives of 12 people in 2017. Hence the next season of “Kin” will most likely focus on the rising tension between the two parties. The drama, animosity, and cruelty will undoubtedly continue in Kin Season 2.
Who Will Feature In The Second Season?
The cast of RTE’s Irish thriller drama series features Daredevil famed Charlie Cox in the role of Michael Kinsella, Clare Dunne as Amanda Kinsella, and Aidan Gillen playing Frank Kinsella. The series also stars Maria Doyle Kennedy as Bridget Goggins, Emmett J. Scanlan as Jimmy Kinsella, Sam Keeley playing Eric Kinsella, and Ciarán Hinds appearing as Eamon Cunningham.
Furthermore, viewers will see Yasmin Seky as Nikita Murphy. Hannah Adeogun plays Anna Areoye while Mark Mckenna Jr. enacts as Anthony Kinsella and Keith McErlean as Con Doyle. The series also casts Ryan Lincoln as Isaac Kemela, Ben Carolan as Glen Wright, and Neill Fleming appears as Dotser Reid, among a few others.
When the show comes back with Kins Season 2, most of the main cast members from the first season are likely to return to their roles. On the flip side, there might also be some new faces in the second season.
