We discuss whether there will be a Season 2 of the Hulu series Saint X and its renewed or canceled status.
Saint X is a psychological drama and murder mystery series from Hulu. The series was developed by Leila Gerstein (Gossip Girl) and is based on the critically acclaimed novel of the same name by Alexis Schaitkin. American filmmaker Dee Rees (Mudbound) directed the first installment and serves as the show’s executive producer.
The series includes multiple timelines but mainly focuses on the murder of a teenage student in the Caribbean while on holiday with her family. The student, Alison Thomas (West Duchovny), quickly gains the attention of all the males at the resort: especially hotel staff member and womanizer Edwin (Jayden Elijah).
Yet Alison’s perfect vacation ends in tragedy, as she dies on the final night of the holiday. The police declare it an accident, but her family believes she was murdered.
In the present, her sister Emily (Alycia Debnam-Carey) stalks one of the potential killers, a taxi driver called Gogo (Josh Bonzie), desperate to find answers.
The Hulu original has been trounced by critics, although the general public has warmed to the series more favorably. With such polarizing views, will Hulu be quick to renew the series, or will they be inclined to cancel it after just one season?
Will there be a Season 2 of Saint X – renewed or canceled status
Saint X is yet to be renewed by Hulu. The first season has had a troubled journey to our screens, and it was then met with polarizing views on its initial release. These bad omens may be a sign for Hulu to cancel the series, yet the renewal status is still currently pending.
Let’s explore the possibilities of a second season in more detail.
Even before the series was released, there was controversy surrounding the production. Crew members left the project over pay disputes, causing filming to be temporarily stopped. The crew members’ walkout may have led to You star Victoria Pedretti leaving the production.
Since its release, critics have been highly negative towards the show. It currently holds a rotten score of 14% on Rotten Tomatoes and 5.5/10 on IMDB (May 23rd, 2023). Although the audience score is 87%, which is far more promising.
Saint X has all the trappings of a one-off miniseries, and it looks like it will probably use all of its source material by the end of the season. With such a controversial backstory and a poor critical response, Hulu seems unlikely to want to renew the series.
Although the show has a fan base and there is much love for co-star Alycia Debnam-Carey, it may change Hulu’s mind in the long run.
I’m going to predict that this series will be canceled, but a renewal would not be that surprising either, considering the show’s popularity with viewers. As always, we will keep you posted on any updates on the pending renewal of Saint X.
