HBO's drama chief reveals that "early discussions" are being held about a possible second season of Mare of Easttown.

HBO drama head Francesca Orsi has revealed that "early discussions" have begun about a potential second season of Mare of Easttown.

The show - billed as a seven-episode limited series - aired in 2021 and starred Kate Winslet as a police detective investigating a murder in her small Philadelphia town while also battling with her own demons from the past.

Mare was a unanimous critical success and went on to be nominated for 16 Emmy Awards, winning four, prompting speculation that a second season could be on the cards.

At the time, creator Brad Ingelsby was non-committal on the prospect, saying that the plot would need to be sufficiently compelling for it to work, and now three years down the line Orsi has hinted that a storyline idea may have been developed.

"We did run to have discussions about a season two [after season one]," she told Variety. "But it did feel too soon."

Orsi added: "While there's nothing in the works, we are having early discussions about whether it might be time to start thinking of building something.

"We might be willing to figure out with Mare, years later, picking her up - not on the heels of where she ended, but there have been years for the character that have passed. Who is she now?"

The full first season is available to stream in the UK via Sky and NOW.
