Kindred, FX’s newest mystery drama, came out on Hulu on December 13 and has been praised by viewers for its interesting storyline. The show is based on Octavia E. Butler’s 1979 book of the same name. It has eight episodes.
The best-selling science fiction book has now been turned into a TV show. In it, a young woman named Dana can’t help going back in time and getting stuck in the early 1800s. She is then brought back to 2016, which is her world.
This show showed how horrible slaves were treated, how bad their working conditions were, and how inhumane their lives were.
Dana needs to figure out why she keeps going back in time, and the ending brought us closer to finding out why. And Season 2 of Kindred will answer all the questions. Before we talk about Season 2, we’ll talk about how Season 1 ended. After that, we’ll talk about what will happen in Season 2.
Plot of Season 2 of Kindred?
For people who haven’t read the book, the end of Season One of Kindred is a frustrating cliffhanger: Kevin, Dana’s boyfriend, is stuck in pre-Civil War Maryland, and Dana, who is in modern-day Los Angeles, doesn’t know how to get him out.
When Dana’s aunt comes to visit, she gets the idea to look through an old family Bible with notes about their ancestors.
Dana reads in the Bible that one of her ancestors, Alice Greenwood, will have a child with Rufus Weylin.
Rufus is the boy who keeps pulling Dana back in time to save his life. All of a sudden, it all makes sense: Dana has to keep Rufus alive so that her ancestors can be born and so that she can live.
Readers of the book know that there’s a lot more to come. When Dana goes back in time to save Kevin next, she’ll meet an adult Rufus, and Kevin will have to get used to living in the past for a long time.
Two changes made for TV could also have big effects: Tom Weylin won’t let his wife and son run away to Baltimore without a fight, and Dana’s mother showing up in modern-day New York could cause a lot of trouble.
Who is in Kindred Season 2?
There haven’t been any official announcements about who will be in the roles. But, since the story jumps around in time a lot, some roles could be played by different people in the next few seasons, depending on where the story goes.
In Season 1, the cast also included Micah Stock (who played Kevin Franklin), Ryan Kwanten (who played Thomas Weylin), Gayle Rankin (who played Margaret Weylin), Austin Smith (who played Luke), David Alexander Kaplan (who played Rufus Weylin), Sophina Brown (who played Sarah), and Sheria Irving (Olivia).
When Will Season 2 of Kindred Come Out?
Let us explain why we think the show will come out in December 2023. At the time this was written, Kindred hadn’t been picked up for a second season. Fans shouldn’t worry, though, because FX won’t say whether or not the show will be renewed for at least a few weeks.
The show just started, after all. When deciding if there will be a second season, the network will look at how many people watched the first season.
Kindred could have a new season since the show hasn’t yet shown a lot of the original material from the book. The show’s creator and showrunner, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, has also said that he wants Kindred to have more than one season.
“In this first season, we only get through about a third of what the book is about. Branden also said, “I think part of what we’re trying to do with the book is to see if we can grow the universe and fill in these small gaps in the book.” There could be three or four seasons of the show.
If a second season is ordered in the next few weeks, we might see it by the end of 2023. S The first season was announced in January 2022, and it started airing in December 2022. If things keep going the same way, Kindred season 2 might start around December 2023.
