Developed by Dennis Lehane, “Black Bird” is an American thriller drama miniseries adapted from the novel titled “In With The Devil: A Fallen Hero, A Serial Killer, and A Dangerous Bargain for Redemption” written by James Keene and Hillel Levin. The miniseries was released on Apple TV+ on July 8, 2022.
Talking about the story in a recent interview with Game Rant, series creator Dennis Lehane was asked about his experience as a novelist and a filmmaker and what made him come up with this story. He responded, “This might sound strange, but I’ve been looking to tell a story that has a clean mythological line, and this was it. If you look at it, it has all the trappings of a classical hero’s journey: you have this young man, he is sent out by his village to confront an ogre that is threatening members of the village, he heads out into a dark forest and battles the monster, and he comes back a changed man. It’s as old as time.”
Upon release, the miniseries received favorable reviews from both the audience and critics alike. With such an intriguing storyline, it’s no wonder why fans crave more. But will there be another season of Black Bird? Let’s find out.
Black Bird Season 2: Is it Confirmed?
Season 2 of Balck Bird has yet to be confirmed. To put it, it’s unlikely that we’ll get a second season since it was deemed as a miniseries and in many cases, a limited series or miniseries completes the story with a single season, especially when it is adapted from real events because of the limited source material. Although there are also many cases in which a limited series or ministries are being revived, there is no exception for Black Bird.
So we might have to wait for further updates on whether or not the show makers will return with the 2nd Season of Black Bird.
When is Black Bird Season 2 Releasing?
As stated earlier, Black Bird is not renewed for season 2 yet and hence, there is no release date whatsoever. The prospect of the show hangs on a thin thread.
The six-episode mini-series aired on Apple TV+ on July 8, 2022. The list of episodes are–
- Episode 1: Pilot
- Episode 2: We Are Coming, Father Abraham
- Episode 3: Hand to Mouth
- Episode 4: Whatshername
- Episode 5: The Place I Lie
- Episode 6: You Promised
Even though a second season is unlikely, you can always watch the first series which is available to watch on Apple TV.
