Is there ‘Your Honor’ Season 2 or Episode 11? Here's the return date and all the scoop for Bryan Cranston starrer
Billed as a limited series, ‘Your Honor’ was developed by Peter Moffat with 10 episodes in mind but he did hint at a possibility to renew it
Spoilers for ‘Your Honor’ Episode 1 to Episode 10
After tons of twists and turns, Bryan Cranston-starrer ‘Your Honor’ ended with a staggering finale. In the final scene, Eugene Jones (Benjamin Flores Jr) slips inside and aims the gun at Carlo Baxter (Jimi Stanton). The bullet, however, hits Adam's (Hunter Doohan) neck and he bleeds to death in his father Michael's arms — much like Rocco Baxter (Benjamin Hassan Wadsworth) did in his last moments.
Billed as a limited series, ‘Your Honor’ was developed by Peter Moffat with 10 episodes in mind but he did hint at a possibility to renew it if there was viewer interest. Moffat told Assignment X that he has imagined the future of the show. “Let’s hope people like it, and if they like it enough, then I guess there’s a conversation to be had.”
Now, several new theories seem to have surfaced on the Internet. One Reddit thread reads: “Do you think Michael kills himself?” Analyzing the ending, a fan wonders: “What I hate most about the ending is that it leaves Bryan Cranston’s character with no recourse whatsoever. Considering we’ve watched him face agonizing despair for the past ten episodes, it really makes no sense that our closing image should be.... him in more agonizing despair.”
The thread continues, “A good show leaves you contemplating how the characters’ lives might continue to unfold after the credits roll. What can we honestly imagine for Michael Desiato? Should we even bother? His son, his reason for living, has just been murdered in front of him, his career is destroyed, his relationship is over, and he’ll likely go to prison for his crimes. Knowing what we know about Michael, it seems fair to say that he has absolutely no reason left to live. And if that’s the case, fine — but I think we deserve to see him die onscreen.”
Not just that, many fans seem fixated on the idea of Episode 11. “#YourHonor I just finished Episode 10. The series was excellent however can we have a symposium??? So much to discuss. I want an Episode 11. Was that ever talked about?” one said and another posted, “I can’t believe there isn’t a #YourHonor episode tonight. Like that shit is just done. I got questions.”
A third chimed in saying, “The writers really got it wrong on #YourHonor. Michael and Adam should've been the Baxters, fighting the Desiato crime family. How they fucked this up, no one can be certain #fail.” And another wondered, "Is a season 2 possible after that ending."
