We discuss whether there will be a Season 2 of the Paramount+ series Fatal Attraction and its renewed or canceled status. 

The 1987 erotic psychological thriller Fatal Attraction starred Michael Douglas and Glenn Close, leading to six Academy Award nominations.

Paramount+ released an eight-episode reimagining of the series with Joshua Jackson and Lizzy Caplan starring in the lead roles that follows a passionate affair that takes a wild and dangerous turn when the woman refuses to let her married lover end their affair.

Throughout this eight-episode journey, you go on this bumpy ride of an affair that sometimes loses focus. That said, I enjoyed most of what the writers presented to us in this reformatting of the classic film.

Most of it concerns the haunting performance by Lizzy Caplan as Alex, the woman that Dan is having an affair with.

Alex is this troubling woman who struggles to find her place in this new city and finds herself in situations that involve married men. When things go south, Caplan perfectly depicts Alex’s twisted, psychopathic ways that cut deep.

Of course, Caplan’s rodeo partner Joshua Jackson continues to prove why he is an underrated actor who deserves a massive spotlight with his excellent turn as Dan Gallagher.

The two’s chemistry led to some incredibly steamy scenes that brought back that erotic type of thriller that we all yearn for. You are easily sucked into the world of Fatal Attraction and trying to put together the pieces of what really went down.

All that said, does Fatal Attraction warrant a season 2? Has Paramount+ pulled the trigger or the plug? We share all we know with you below.

Will there be a Season 2 of Fatal Attraction – renewed or canceled status

Currently, Fatal Attraction has not been renewed for a second season. It’s very likely that Paramount+ is assessing the data and whether it is popular enough for continuation. While critics have not viewed the series favorably, audiences seem on board with the TV show.

The higher rating with audiences typically benefits the series more than critics think. Another point of interest will be to see the streaming numbers for the series when they come out. Also, I’ll be interested in how the audiences handle the aftermath of the finale, as it will indeed cause a stir.

You may ask, where can the series go? Well, if you watched the movie, you know they altered some things to let them expand it into an eight-episode series.

Personally, my preference would’ve been for them to explore a second season with a new cast and a new affair.

    The show is wonderful and the director, producer and actors have done a fantastic job! It is definitely not the same animal as the first movie, this goes much deeper. You can tell the crew has put a lot of heart and soul into the show. I am very disappointed that there will not be a second season.
