If you are a fan of political thrillers that are rooted in real-life incidents, Starz’s Gaslit might just be the show for you. The show’s inaugural season just completed its run last week. Meanwhile, the impact it created has now led the fans to be excited about Gaslit Season 2. So, let’s discuss what we know about it.
Gaslit is a political drama thriller series that debuted on Staz in April. The series created by Robbie Pickering revolves around the infamous Watergate scandal in American history, with Martha Mitchelle at the center.
What To Expect From Gaslit Season 2?
The first season of the thriller series saw President Nixon resigning from the office of the President. Meanwhile, Martha was diagnosed with a type of cancer and died. At the same time, John Dean got out of the jail and relocated to California along with Mo. At the end of the first season, the fates reveal the fate of other characters. With the end of the season, as the credits rolled, we saw a message on the screen saying, “Martha was right.”
If the series comes back with Gaslight Season 2, it may center around the Clinton-Lewinsky sex scandal that shook America in the 1990s. The second season may also delve deep into the impeachment of Bill Clinton. It was only the second impeachment in American history. The season might also focus on Paula Jones’ sexual harassment complaint against Clinton. The show will most likely focus on the lesser-known characters linked with the catastrophe as it did in the first season.
Who Will Star In The Second Season?
The cast of the Gaslit features Julia Roberts as Martha Mitchell, Sean Penn in the role of John N. Mitchell, and Dan Stevens as John Dean. Moreover, the show also stars Shea Whigham as G. Gordon Liddy, Betty Gilpin playing Mo Dean, and Darby Camp as Marty Mitchell.
Moreover, Allison Tolman stars as Winnie McLendon, Chris Messina as Agent Angelo Lano, Carlos Valdes enacts Paul Magallanes, and Patrick Walker as Frank Wills. If the series returns with Gaslit Season 2, we might see the new actor playing President Clinton. And his wife Hilary Clinton and other people related to the story.
Will There Be Gaslit Season 2?
The first season of the political thriller series premiered on Starz on April 24, 2022, and the season came to an end on June 12, 2022. The first season shows the events surrounding the Watergate Scandal, as well as Martha’s and others’ participation in it. It finishes with Martha’s death and brief explanations of what happened to other historical characters included in the presentation.
Meanwhile, talking about the future of the show, neither Straz nor the creators of the show have given any confirmation yet about the show getting renewed for a second season. But this does not confirm that the show will not return. Given the popularity that first has received, it will not be a surprise if Gaslit Season 2 returns with a focus on different political events from US history.
