Every great romance is filled with a lot of drama. Would a love story really be great without any hurdles in the path of the lovers?

Confess Season 2 Release Date: When Will It Premiere?
‘Confess’ season 1 premiered on April 4, 2017. The series enjoyed the already established fan-base of Hoover’s novels — the people who had already been waiting a long time for the book to be turned into series. The huge response from the audience suggests that the series succeeded in living up to the reputation of the book. The fans expressed their satisfaction with the show and started asking questions about the fate of season 2.
Despite the overwhelming response, there hasn’t been an official announcement regarding the next season of the series. Since it was based on a book and already had a fixed storyline, it is possible that the series might not return for another season. However, miniseries are not bound by the single-season criteria now. So it is possible that the networks take it forward, as it happened with HBO’s ‘Big Little Lies’. We will update this page if we receive any news on ‘Confess’ Season 2 release date.
‘Confess’ is a perfect mix of a little bit of mystery and lots of romance. Hoover’s stories have a way of connecting with people and ‘Confess’ brings that feeling on screen with absolute perfection. If you love this show, then you can watch it on YouTube. Here is a look at the trailer:
