This article discusses whether there will be a season 2 of the Netflix thriller drama series Pieces Of Her and its renewed or cancelled status. This article contains spoilers.

Pieces Of Her is an eight-part drama based on the 2018 novel of the same name. The series focuses on 911 call operator Andy, who is witness to a mass shooting at a diner on her thirtieth birthday. During this horrific event, she sees a different side to her mother, one which forces Andy to reassess her entire life.

The show dives headfirst into the espionage thriller genre as Andy investigates her mother’s dark past, uncovering a world of corruption and cover-up. There’s an eighties romance, the assassination of a billionaire business tycoon, and a whole host of murky criminal activity. Series director Minkie Spiro (Downton Abbey, Better Call Saul) tries to balance out this secret agent action by honing in on the emotional impact of all this depravity. The results are uneven, but overall this is an addictive series that pumps fresh blood into a tired genre.

Status: TBC

The status of a season 2 renewal is currently still pending over at Netflix. The show was originally advertised as a mini-series and it normally takes something rather special to garner a second season from a mini-series. You are talking Squid Game level success to change a one-off show into a franchise. Squid Game was renewed thanks to the record-breaking viewership it was rightfully bestowed. The popularity of Pieces Of Her is harder to gauge, it could be a hit but it could also get buried under a mountain of 2022 content already released this year. Your guess is as good as mine.

If pushed to comment, I’d say it is unlikely there will be a second installment due to the finale nicely tying up most loose ends. The only storyline left unresolved was Jane’s involvement in her father’s murder. Andy figured out that Jane had provided the murderer (Grace Juno) with the weapon used to end Martin Queller’s life. An eavesdropping Jasper overheard Andy explaining this revelation and he then went and told Laura this new information. Laura could possibly become entangled in this conspiracy and go to prison for the rest of her life, yet the show ends with her accepting her fate and deciding not to run. This seems like a legitimate ending and it would take some grandiose ratings to initiate a second season.

We’ll keep you posted on any updates in the pending renewal of Pieces Of Her.
