Echoes is a mystery thriller created by Vanessa Gazy, that is executive produced by Brian Yorkey, the creator of 13 Reasons Why. The series centers on identical twins Gina and Leni, both played by Michelle Monaghan. These deceitful sisters decide to swap lives once a year, sharing two careers, two husbands and one daughter. Their deceptive plan goes awry when Leni goes missing and a police investigation is launched into her suspicious disappearance.

The seven-episode miniseries is your typical trashy thriller content, with plenty of twists and an addictive mystery at the heart of its story. Unfortunately, this excellent premise is wasted and the show falls apart with clichéd dialogue, tensionless action and farfetched scenarios. The show runners leave the finale open ended, but is there a hunger for a second season?

Will there be a season 2 of the Netflix series Echoes – renewed or cancelled status

Status: TBC

Echoes is advertised as a miniseries, which means it is only expected to run for one season. The miniseries format is a compelling and highly successful way of telling a taut story without any loose ends or filler episodes, but Echoes seems to leave its ending ambiguous, teasing more to come. I don’t think Netflix will renew the series for a follow-up, although there is potential for more installments if the audience is willing.

Season one ends with the twins both fleeing investigation and their small town scandals to start new lives alone. Leni escapes to Australia and Gina to Kansas. In the very final scene, Gina returns to her husband Charlie, but doesn’t verify that she is the real Gina. It’s one of those lazy twist endings that tries to be cleverer than it actually is, hinting at a new mystery to solve. Charlie vows to find out which twin she is and Gina states that she is back to settle some scores. It’s ambiguous and open-ended, but maybe clutching at straws slightly. I would be very surprised if the mischievous twins return for a second season. As always, we’ll keep you posted on any updates in the pending renewal of Echoes.
