Ben Watkins has confirmed plans for Hand of God Season 2 — and revealed a five season arc for the Amazon original series.
Amazon has yet to cancel or renew Hand of God for Season 2.
Speaking to GiveMeMyRemote, the series creator revealed that he’s “always pictured [Hand of God] going five seasons,” and teased what Season 2 has in store, renewal permitting:
We’ll be looking at [how Crystal and Pernell’s relationship develops]. We put a lot of pressure on this relationship they have, but in a twisted way, it’s brought them closer. Even before the end of the season, this crisis brought them closer together in terms of honesty and reminders of why they are with each other. And then by the end of the season, even more so. So, in season 2, we want to [explore], is that enough to maintain a marriage, considering all of the things that are bearing down on that relationship: the loss of the son, the shared interests they have, and also the revelations that come with the infidelity. They’re in a precarious situation, relationship-wise, but they’re also more ready to be honest with each other than they ever have been. and that could be the key to salvaging that relationship.
On Pernell’s personal arc moving forward into Season 2 and beyond:
Pernell will still be struggling with this question of if he’s having a breakdown or a religious experience when we come into season 2. He’ll still be having visions, he’ll still be hearing voices, but he will have real doubts about what’s causing them. He’ll look into what are some other explanations. As far as the overall journey of the series, the next phase for him is when he gets to a crossroad, this is one of those situations where when people get to a moment of unknown, they have to fill in the blank one way or another. I just think that’s something part of the human condition; we’re really uncomfortable with uncertainty, even though that’s a part of life. When we encounter that, we make decisions about how to fill in those blanks. And Pernell is going to make a conscious decision to fill in those blanks; he is on a spiritual journey, a supernatural journey versus going crazy.
