Kindred Season 2 Release Date: Kindred, the newest mystery drama from FX, debuted on Hulu on December 13 and is getting good reviews for its interesting plot. The eight-part show is based on Octavia E. Butler’s book of the same name from 1979.
Kindred is about a young writer named Dana who moves to Los Angeles but gets stuck in a mysterious time loop that sends her back to a 19th-century plantation in California that is connected to her family history.
The first season of the show ended with a cliffhanger that didn’t answer many questions. Fans are now wondering if a new season will be made. Here’s what we know about Kindred’s second season.
Kindred Season 2 Renewal Status
At the time this was written, Kindred had not been picked up for a second season. Fans don’t need to worry, though, because the show just started, and FX will take at least a few weeks to say whether or not it will be back. The network will decide whether to make a second season based on how many people watched the first season.
There is a good chance that Kindred will get a new season since there is still a lot of material from the book that hasn’t been shown on the show. Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, who created and runs the series, has also said that he wants Kindred to have more than one season.
“We only cover about a third of the book’s material in this first season. “I think part of the attack on the book is to see if we can expand the universe and fill these small rooms in the book,” Branden said, adding that the show could have three or four seasons.
As for when the show will return, if a second season is ordered in the next few weeks, it should be back by the end of 2023. The first season was picked up in January 2022, and the first episode aired in December 2022. If things keep going the same way, the second season of Kindred will come out in December 2023.

Kindred Season 2 Expected Storyline
The third chapter of the book, called “The Fall,” was the last part of the first season of the show. Most likely, the next season will start with what happens in chapter 4, “The Fight.” In the book, Dana leaves Kevin in 1815 and comes back five years later, which in the modern world is only eight days.
Dana then goes looking for Kevin, and Rufus’s father sends him to the plantation to meet her. But the time they spend apart changes their relationship, especially because Kevin is white and has a lot of advantages.
Kevin then tries to take Dana with him when he wants to leave the plantation, but Rufus points a gun at the two of them. Then, in the present day, they both go back to Los Angeles.
Kindred Season 2 Star Cast
Some of the actors are likely to come back for the second season, but many others are likely to be replaced because the show will jump around in time a lot. Micah Stock plays Kevin Franklin in the series. Ryan Kwanten plays Thomas Weylin, Gayle Rankin plays Margaret Weylin, and Austin Smith plays Luke.
David Alexander Kaplan is playing Rufus Weylin. Sophina Brown is playing Sarah, Sheria Irving is playing Olivia, Abigail Shannon is playing Alice, Lindsey Blackwell is playing Carrie, Christopher Farrar is playing Nigel, and Eisa Davis is playing Denis.
