We discuss whether there will be a season 2 of the Prime Video series The English and its renewed or canceled status.

The English is not for the faint of heart. Hugo Blick‘s unforgiving and uncompromising Prime Video series captures the dangerous elements of the American West, where more than one thing can kill you besides bullets, knives, and arrows. While tackling themes of the genocide of Indigenous people and regrettable treatment of women, Blick tries to offer the anti-western. The English series is as far from a western like Tombstone as you can get.

However, will people embrace that type of entertainment? The kind that attempts to pull the curtain back on the grand adventure of the American West trope? Filmmakers did this with Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven and, in a lesser case, the Netflix series Godless. However, for audiences to embrace a western that gets darker and bleaker by the episode is yet to be seen.

Will there be a season 2 of the Prime Video series The English – renewed or canceled status

Status: TBC

At this moment in time, Amazon Prime Video has not renewed The English. One thing the show has going for it is the cast, including a massive film star Emily Blunt, who leads an impressive collection of actors. With a stoic and soulful performance from Twilight’s Chaske Spencer, you have Belfast’s Ciaran Hinds, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy’s Toby Jones, The Crying Game’s Stephen Rea, and a breakout performance by Rafe Spall that’s brimming with a dangerous flair. This top-notch cast does its best to keep a tired genre interesting and thought-provoking. But make no mistake, Blunt carries this gritty series until the very end. You just cannot take your eyes off her in The English. The Mary Poppins Returns star brings an exquisite beauty and weathered grit few can find on the screen.

However, this is a truly limited series. We live in a time where almost every film or series gives itself a trap door for a sequel or a chance to tell additional stories. So, this is refreshing that the story wraps up the way it does. Another point, for one, there is a plot point reveal that paints a bleak and short timeframe for the series’ headlining stars. While the outcome is bleak for additional seasons, I could see a spinoff of Spencer’s Eli Whipp.

However, with Spencer being a respected actor with limited star power, his Eli Whipp may not be the breakout character the streaming series may need to ensure a second season. Otherwise, the showrunners will need The English to play extraordinarily well with Prime Video members and even critics alike to have a chance at a sequel or additional stories.

Prediction: We will keep an eye on data and keep this article updated, but we believe The English has found its final homestead and has planted roots without a chance for a second season.

    Superb series. Massively gritty, gristly and gripping all at the same time! I just loved it. But let it ride off into the sunset now. It’s story concludes fittingly and needs nothing more. Well done Hugo Blick!!!

    Watching now. Extremely heart wrenching American saga. Fantastic acting by all!
    Thank you for using indigenous people in the roles of Native people.

    The character development of this series is phenomenal…excellent acting, screenplay, editing. It’s a 10+ in all ways. I truly hope the series is kept alive for the future. We have been glued to the tv, trying to pace ourselves. It’s a must see series.

    It was brilliant, the acting the photography and music. My favorite. Sequel could show what happened in the last 13 years, who is to say she went home right away, Eli and her could have done some traveling before she got sick and left. 13 years a long time.
