Continue reading if you’re interested in learning more about Defending Jacob Season 2’s renewal. Let’s go over the basics of this series before we get into the heart of it. Defending Jacob is an American crime drama streaming television miniseries, based on the 2012 novel of the same name by William Landay, produced by Apple TV+.

Mark Bomback created and scripted the series, which was directed by Morten Tyldum. It aired from April 24, 2020, to May 29, 2020, and consisted of only 8 episodes.

Defending Jacob follows a family as they struggle with the possibility that their 14-year-old son is a murderer. Critics appreciated the series’ ambiguity, emotional weight, and performances (particularly those of Evans, Dockery, and Martell).

After the conclusion of Season 1 alot of viewers are hoping to have another season of Defending Jacob. So let’s talk in detail and clear all the doubts that everyone has.

Defending Jacob Renewal Status

Let’s get to the topic right away. In some manner, we all already knew the answer to the renewal of Defending Jacob. ‘Defending Jacob’ isn’t being canceled, but it doesn’t appear that it was ever meant to be more than a one-season show. It’s described as a ‘limited series‘ by Apple. That implies there are just eight episodes and nothing else.

It’s a ‘Miniseries,’ as we previously stated. We all know that, with the exception of a few limited series, the majority of limited series do not receive an additional season. Only those episodes that are released in Season 1 cover the entire storyline of the show. Season 2 of ‘Defending Jacob’ just doesn’t seem likely.

Defending Jacob Season 2 Renewal Expectations

The series was originally intended to be a stand-alone miniseries, according to executive producer Mark Bomback, and it reflects. The entire plot hinges around one primary mystery, and now that it’s been solved (almost), there’s not much else to proceed.

In terms of plot, Andy Barber could come back to work and become involved in a completely new case, all while dealing with the fallout from season one. Chris Evans, on the other hand, isn’t sure if he’d want to comeback for a second round.

The series’ tale has already been completed and resolved, and the mystery has been revealed. Still, viewers are clamoring for another season, possibly with a different tale. Long story short, there won’t be another Season of Defending Jacob. The ‘miniseries’ is concluded.

What Happened At The Conclusion Of Defending Jacob?

If you haven’t watched the show yet, this specific information will be a spoiler. Speeding in the rain, Laurie asks Jacob if he killed Ben, not having faith him when he repeatedly says no, lamenting that she’ll never know the truth. If that’s what she wants to hear, Jacob informs her he killed Ben. Laurie drives the car into an overpass.

The grand jury trial that has set the tone for the drama turns out to be for Laurie, not Jacob. Andy claims that the crash was an accident, despite not knowing the truth.

Andy visits Jacob, who is in a coma, and Laurie, who is gravely hurt, after Laurie is cleared. He comes home alone and sits in Jacob’s room, reflecting.

The ending of the show gave the viewers all the specifics needed. Well, do tell us what do you think about the ending of the show? And do you want another season of Defending Jacob?

  1. Absolutely! The series is addicting as it makes you consider the parents internal conflicts of dealing with the fact that they may have in fact raised a murderer.

  2. Yes would love to see another season maybe A better ending this ending is quite heartbreaking I like to see movies like this end in a positive note not just left hanging. There is just too much negative garbage going on in our world we need to have some hope this ending is so twisted it leaves you hopeless maybe Lori can get some mental help as she was suggested to do so in previous episodes. Her son might actually have borderline Asperger’s or might be high functioning autistic. My son actually is 15 and has high functioning autism and is very different than Jacob he’s the opposite extremely social! At the same time he did remind me of him a bit I just hope they can put a positive ending on this someday. Very well written enjoyed it tremendously.

  3. The ending sucks! We don’t know for sure who killed Ben…It could have been Derek or even Sarah, of course a new season is warranted. This is a dumb series.

    • Seriously, how the hell is anyone saying this was concluded !!!??? What!!! No it was not. We have no idea who did it. The pedo was forced to make the note. And they string you along the entire series thinking Jacob is a psycho and could have definitely been the culprit. I mean…..what a massive bullshit ending. One of those….( It’s art ) endings. Where we the viewer are supposed to make out own assumptions… Screw that!! I want answers !!! I spent hours watching this …all for nothing !!!! Errrr

      • From Roz ; Enjoyable until the end and then a huge let down. Very common these days in similar drams. Why do writers do this? Never used to be so.

  4. We need a season 2. I need to know how Jacob fares post coma and what other mystery there may be. Does Andy continue his career? Does his way of being DA change! So many unanswered questions

  5. WOW. Brilliantly acted drama. Gripping and an emotional Rollercoaster. Couldn’t stop watching and of course we all want Jacob to be proven innocent, but what if? I felt the pain of each of them.

  6. I thought it was a great mini-series. I wasn’t disappointed at all by the ending. It’s one of those stories that the author leaves you hanging on purpose so you may either draw your own conclusion, or just never know. Suspense is thrilling when there is no “period” at the end!
