'Your Honor' Season 2 on Showtime: Bryan Cranston confirms upcoming season will be show's LAST
Showtime is an all-time favourite for shows and movies that make you think. Now, its back with the second season of the highly-anticipated crime drama series, 'Your Honour'. Fans were overjoyed of course but some new information has put a slight dampner on the upcoming season.
The series' star Bryan Cranston sat down with Dax Shepard for an interview on the 'Armchair Expert' podcast, only to reveal that Showtime’s 'Your Honor' will end after its upcoming season. The show, earlier envisioned as a limited-run miniseries, got a second season only because of its breakout ratings success.
Filming has started on the second season of Showtime's 'Your Honor' that will see Cranston return to reprise his role as a judge faced with the biggest moral dilemma of his life. Originally, 'Your Honor' was developed as a miniseries when it aired on Showtime in 2020-21 but it became a ratings hit for the network that greenlit a second season with 10 episodes to continue the story, based on the series' above-average reception, both in terms of viewership and being hailed by critics.
'Your Honor' has a fascinating plot, and its lead actor Bryan Cranston even scored a Golden Globe nom in 2021 for playing the part of a judge who is forced to examine his core beliefs. If you're a fan of crime drama series then this is somethig you should definitely watch, in case you haven't already. Season 2's release date is yet to be released but it should air by the end of 2022. So there is plenty of time to refresh your memory with a marathon watch of Season 1.
The upcoming season has been penned by scriptwriter Joey Hartstone. Peter Moffat, who served as writer, executive producer and showrunner of the first season, has opted not to return because he lives in the UK and wanted to stay close to family. David Manson was brought in to helm the second season as the showrunner, but when he quit as well, he was succeeded by Hartstone this past spring.
On 'Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert' podcast, Bryan Cranston stated, "I am [currently] preparing for the second and last season of Your Honor, which is a limited series that I did for Showtime, As they tell me, it got higher ratings than any other series they’ve ever had — and so, one more season of that." Season 1 was entirely based on the Israeli series 'Kvodo' created by Ron Ninio and Shlomo Mashiach. 'Your Honor' became the most-watched debut season on Showtime ever, with a massive count of 6.6 million viewers per week.
