The Plot of Reprisal season 2: What could be the storyline of Reprisal season 2?
It’s not exactly known what could happen in the second season since the first season showed us guns and explicit violence. But if a second season happens, we could see something different, maybe Doris will lead a normal life away from all the turbulence that has caused her to take revenge against the gear heads.
Speaking about her character in Reprisal, star Abigail Spencer said, “I feel like Doris is harnessing all of the energy of the planet of feminist rage and bringing that forward, I feel honored to be a container for that.”
The series is set in a world that is governed by men. Filled with chaos and supremacy at every spin and henceforth, the extensively crucial part about the series is a woman soaring and defying all odds and facing the challenges. Her entire feminist escapade provides a new dynamic to the show and the viewers get a tough time pondering their emotions when the storyline between the good and the baddies gets darkened.
The viewers may often find themselves feeling uneasy and restless and the urge to constantly gasp for air due to the suspense and the quality of extremism that almost all the characters in the show possess. The showrunner of Reprisal Josh Corbin said, “I think the difference between good and evil is a blurred line, I want the audience to ask themselves, ‘I don’t know how I feel about that’.”
With that said, if the show is renewed for a second season, Doris and the other characters will lead a normal life now that she has killed off Burt in the first season.
