Season 2 of the patient probably won’t happen
The psychological thriller series The Patient premiered onX on August 30, 2022, and concluded on October 25, 2022 with ten episodes. Now that The Patient is over, spectators are looking forward to enjoying the continuation of the series.
Alan Strauss, a therapist, is held captive by patient Samortner, who reveals himself to be a serial killer. Sam has a strange healing request from Alan: stop his murderous tendencies.
In order to survive, Alan must untangle Sam’s disturbed mind and prevent him from killing again but Sam refuses to discuss important topics, such as his mother Candice. A lot has happened in this series, so let’s take a look at the state of the renovation.
Is “The Patient” renewed for a second season?
The patient will likely not return for a second season. The whole story has been completed, and the series has already been classified as a file Limited Series or Series.
And in that case, we don’t usually get another season because the epilogue reveals all of that. Sometimes limited series are renewed due to the love of the spectators but this is not likely the scenario with “The Patient”.
Also, the patient was only likely to be planned to run for one season by the network itself.
Domhnall Gleeson Talks About Ending ‘The Patient’
Gleeson said in an interview regarding wrapping up the entire series and already hinted that we might not get another season.
When I read it, I was like, ‘This is the only way this series could end. This is the most ideal. I thought they suspended the landing. And I knew they would, but I was nervous about all kinds of different things.
I was nervous about what you said someone like him could achieve. Like what are the limits of his capabilities? And I think it said a lot about Steve’s character, and what it means to be alive – I thought it was really emotional, honest, yet still surprising.
I thought they kept all those balls in the air really well. And I thought they found a way to end something I’ve been on for a while, “I don’t know what’s the way to do that.”
Joelields mentioned that they always wanted to have smaller episodes. “Well, in its very, very, very original incarnation, it was an hour-long show, I think, four to six weeks in.”
He said in another interview regarding the ending, “I think there’s a multipart answer to that. The first is that this was our first instinct. Not in that exact order or detail of scenes, but in the general ending. It was in the show’s synopsis as we first put it.”
And from there, throughout the course of writing it, we thought, talked, tried, and wrote every iteration we could imagine. That was a lot of versions. But in the end we found ourselves going back to the first case.”
