Deadwater Fell Season 2 Release Date: When Will it Premiere?
‘Deadwater Fell’ season 1 premiered on Monday, April 6, 2020, on Acorn TV. It consisted of 4 episodes of an hour each. After following a weekly release format, it concluded its run on April 27, 2020. Ahead of its U.S. premiere, the show released in the U.K. on January 10, 2020, on Channel 4. Here, it wrapped up on January 31, 2020.
‘Deadwater Fell’ was originally conceptualized as a miniseries. And the first season answers all the questions although the conclusion left fans disappointed. According to viewers, the ending was too straightforward. But since the story is close-ended, another season seems highly unlikely. However, we can never say never in the world of tv. If the makers decide to continue the story by focusing on why the murderer took such an extreme step, they might renew it for a second installment.
In the remote scenario that this happens, we can expect ‘Deadwater Fell’ season 2 to release sometime in January 2021 on Channel 4. After finishing its run in the U.K., it should be picked up by Acorn to air around April 2021.
