Tiny Beautiful Things, a new show, premiered on Hulu recently and has been appreciated for its ability to make the audience laugh and cry at the same time. The series is based on Cheryl Strayed’s book of the same name and follows a writer, Clare Pierce, who is trying to help others with her advice columns while her own life is being torn apart.
All the episodes of the first season were released on Hulu on April 7th, and fans who have binged on the show are now wondering if and when it would return with a new season. Continue reading to find out.
Will there be a Tiny Beautiful Things Season 2?
Tiny Beautiful Things was billed as a limited series by Hulu, which means it was originally planned as a one-season show. However, a number of limited series in the past have been turned into multi-season franchises owing to their popularity. So Tiny Beautiful Things could also return with a season 2 if Hulu decides to go ahead with it.
The streaming platform has neither renewed nor canceled the show as of now. Meanwhile, the author of the book Cheryl Strayed, who also serves as an executive producer on the series, has expressed her interest in continuing the show. However, she has also revealed that there have been ‘no conversations’ about the renewal with Hulu so far.
“We would love to keep going. To be honest with you, nothing would make me happier. The book offers so many more columns and opportunities for stories,” Strayed said, adding that she is ‘hoping for the best,’ and that she and showrunner Liz Tigelaar ‘have both said we would love to keep doing it.’
What will Tiny Beautiful Things Season 2 be About?
If Hulu decides to go ahead with a second season, the showrunners will still have a lot of source material, as a number of columns from the book are yet to be covered in the show. By the end of the first season, Clare’s relationship dynamics with her brother and father still remained open-ended. This can be one of the major storylines in season 2.
“There could be a very interesting story if they find forgiveness and mend their relationship. And there could also be a really interesting story if they don’t do that, you know, if Clare actually makes a clearer line between her and them and between that past,” Strayed said of the potential storyline.
Who will Star in Tiny Beautiful Things Season 2?
If season 2 does get green-lit, Kathryn Hahn is expected to reprise her role as Clare Pierce. Sarah Pidgeon could also be seen as young Clare in the flashbacks. The cast will probably include Quentin Plair as Danny Kincade, Tanzyn Crawford as Rae Kincade, Michaela Watkins as Amy Adler, and Owen Painter as younger Lucas.
Also expected to reprise their roles are Tijuana Ricks as Mel Green, Merritt Wever as Frankie Pierce, Elizabeth Hinkler as Shan, Johnny Berchtold as Jess, and Aneasa Yacoub as Montana. The series is produced by Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine, along with Best Day Ever Productions, Jaywalker Pictures, and ABC Signature.
