With the cancellation reaper already in hot pursuit of American Gothic, EP Corinne Brinkerhoff has confirmed plans for Season 2 within a longer six season vision, per The Wrap:
The show has been advertised as a “13-part murder mystery” so are we promised there will be resolution to this at the end of Season 1?
There will be resolution, yes. You’ll get all the answers. That was something we made sure of early on, this is kind of like your summer novel, in TV form. So you get an answer. I wanted there to be one satisfying story, and then figure out how to pivot to Season 2. That’s the fun part.
Do you know what Season 2 is? Is it a whole new family?
Yeah, when I pitched it, it was that the first five or six seasons would be the same general idea, but each season would be a different family, different setting, different mystery. So it will explore similar themes and be very character-based. That’s the creative ideal for all of us … the same universe, same playground, but to completely reinvent the family and the story, which we can do over and over again.
Stay tuned as we continue monitoring the status of American Gothic Season 2…
