‘Your Honor’ Season 2: Release date, plot, cast, trailer, where to watch and all about Showtime's crime drama starring Bryan Cranston
The ending of the show has been branded poetic as it makes you relive the horrific moments from episode one. But, will there be another season?
Spoilers for ‘Your Honor’ Episode 1 to Episode 10
Based on the award-winning TV legal thriller ‘Kvodo’, Showtime released its dark crime drama ‘Your Honor’ and stumped viewers. Starring Bryan Cranston in the lead, the 10-episode series revolved around a game of lies, deceit and impossible choices after the son of a dangerous criminal was killed in a hit-and-run.
The ending of the show has been branded “poetic” as it makes you relive the horrific moments from episode one. Now, the one and only question on fans' minds is: Is there another season? Billed as a “limited series”, the show was created keeping only 10 episodes in mind but with all the loose ends and unwrapped storylines, fans can't help but demand another season. Will the makers comply? Here's all you need to know.
‘Your Honor’ premiered with Part One on December 6, 2020 and more episodes in the miniseries followed every Sunday at 10 pm ET on Showtime Channel. The final episode aired on February 14, 2021 and it was available on Showtime’s official website, SHO OnDemand and on the Showtime App ahead of its premiere on Showtime Channel.
As for Season 2, there has been no official announcement and the makers haven't given a green light yet. If renewed in 2021, the second season of ‘Your Honor’ will be ready for release in 2022. We will update this space once there is any news on that.
Although ‘Your Honor’ was written as “a one-off” thing, creator Peter 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.”
When he was asked about how Hope Davis accidentally uttered “this season” as opposed to next season during an interview, Moffat quipped, “Hope obviously knows much more than me. [laughs] That’s kind of great. It’s written as a limited series, as a one-off. It finishes. There’s a beginning, a middle, and an end at the end of Episode 10. But I would be being dishonest if I were to say to you that, as a writer, I don’t think about some of the things that might go in Episode 11. Of course, I do, albeit idly at the moment.”
A dark 10-episodic legal thriller, ‘Your Honor’ centers around the life of a New Orleans judge who is forced to confront his own deepest convictions when his son is involved in a hit-and-run that involves an organized crime family.
As a storm of vengeance, lies and deceit threatens to engulf the entire city, Michael Desiato faces a series of increasingly impossible choices and discovers just how far an honest man will go to save his son’s life. Dangerous crime lord Jimmy Baxter and his wife Gina Baxter’s birthday gift puts their son Rocco on a collision course with tragedy. Desiato will have to test the bonds with his oldest friend Charlie and put a strain on Adam’s secret relationship with girlfriend Frannie.
