Lisey’s Story is an American Horror mini-drama series based on the famous novel by well-known author Stephen King of the same name. Eerie, uncanny, and convoluting horror themes have always been King’s arena and genre which has been heavily portrayed in Lisey’s Story as well. Lisey’s Story Season 2 is in talks nowadays.
Lisey’s Story premiered on June 4th, 2004, and has heavy involvement of Stephen King as well who was primarily involved and instrumental in writing all the eight episodes as well.
Lisey’s Story Plot
Lisey’s Story tells the story of the titular protagonist, Lisey just as the series name indicates who has been widowed after the death of her famous and extremely successful novelist husband.
The plot has two storylines going hand in hand- one is about Lisey’s present life, 2 years after her husband’s death and the other is about the life of her now-dead husband which we see through Lisey’s remembrance throughout the plot.
2 years later, when Lisey is going to clean her dead husband’s writing station Lisey is bound to recall and face some events and realities about her husband that she suppressed in her brain and had long forgotten. Since, Lisey is followed, stalked, attacked, traumatized, and even mutilated by this crazy stalker who used to be an obsessive fan of her husband she starts remembering her husband’s past life about his horrible family history, mental illness, and how he could also at the same time just transport himself to another world.
As the plot continues we see all the complexities in their marriage but at the same time the deeply embedded love they had for each other.
Lisey’s Story Season 2 Release Date
To the current date, there has been no confirmed or officially announced the renewal of Lisey’s Story for another season since it was intended to be released originally as a miniseries itself and also showed the entirety of Stephen King’s novel in its first season leaving little to no scope for Lisey’s Story Season 2.
Still, often miniseries do get renewed for another season if the fans and viewer’s buzz can pull it back up again. But for Lisey’s Story that is a quite unlikely thing too since the show got quite mixed reviews after the release of Lisey’s Story Season 1 and since Apple + is a comparatively newer streaming platform viewership numbers were not skyrocketing high either.
Still only if Apple sees that the numbers for Lisey’s Story are somewhat standard compared to other shows available on the platform only then maybe there could be a bleak possibility for Lisey’s Story Season 2.
But since the story of the novel has already been entirely shown in season 1 if a potential Lisey’s Story Season 2 even happens it would be an entirely original story maybe following grief-ridden Lisey’s story and her struggle that continues. If season 2 happens, we cannot expect it to hit the screens sooner than mid-2023.
