This article discusses whether there will be season 2 of the AMC series Dark Winds and its renewed or cancelled status.

AMC is ramping up its shows to fill up their streaming service to compete with the market, which brought this gem of a series, Dark Winds.

Based on the Tony Hillerman’s Leaphorn & Chee book series, Dark Winds follows two Navajo police officers, Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee, in the 1970s Southwest. The two officers are challenged on their spiritual beliefs when searching for clues in a mysterious double murder case. The series is created by Graham Roland (known for producing Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan on Amazon Prime).

In total, there are six episodes as part of season 1. Viewers can watch Dark Winds season 1 on AMC and their streaming service AMC+.

Will there be a season 2 of the AMC series Dark Winds – renewed or cancelled status

Status: Renewed.

Yes, Dark Winds has proven to be popular, so much so that it has been renewed already. On launch (June 12), the premiere drew in 2.2 million viewers, with excellent ratings, and was ranked number 5 in cable programming. The company, which also produces the series, was impressed, stating that it’s their number 1 series in history for AMC+.

And season 2 may not be the last in the series; executive producer Robert Redford has optioned Hullerman’s book collection, and he did this decades ago. It’s evident here that AMC has produced something special.
