The show is based on William Landay’s book under the same title. Further, the season 1 concluded with everything in the book and the possibility of a new season is considerably low. And if the team is planning a renewal of the show, there will be a huge delay in the release date. Season one was released 18 months after the announcement. Moreover, Defending Jacob cast availability can also be a concern. And so, if there is a chance of a season 2, it can be expected by the year 2022 or 2023.
