When can we expect Defending Jacob season 2?

Defending Jacob is one of the top popular shows on the Apple Tv+ streaming platform, and we can’t overlook the fact that fans are expecting an even better season 2. The show is based on the book by William Landay and is termed a Limited miniseries with eight episodes. Unfortunately, there is no real news about season 2.

The story from the book got covered in eight episodes, but then again, looking at the fan base, and they love the show called, season 2 is highly anticipated.

Looking at the last production time, we can expect season 2 to be released later in 2021 or in 2022. The release entirely depends on the decision of the Defending Jacob production team, and thus, all we can do is stay optimistic.

Defending Jacob season 2 potential plot

The first season of Defending Jacob is an adaptation of the book and the series, which ended, finishing the complete story of the book. Thus, If the production team wishes to make a second season, they will have to come up with a new fresh plot.

The writer of the series William Landay published the first book defending Jacob back in 2012, and the book consisted of 421 pages. The plot was all about a family and their struggle to save and protect their beloved son Jacob Barber from the murder charge.

Although there is no confirmed storyline for the second season, fans and critics anticipate that the second season plot could revolve around another mystery involving Andy’s dad, the authorities, and the Barber family.

Defending Jacob’s season 1 conclusion

Spoiler alert! The above information is a major spoiler if you haven’t watched the series yet. Thus, I would recommend you proceed only if you have watched the series and want a brief conclusion revision.

The series ends with Laurie asking Jacob if he really did kill Ben, but Jacob cannot trust anybody; thus, he repeatedly denies being guilty. But later, Jacob lets her know the truth and accepts that he killed Ben. Next, Laurie knowingly drives the car into an overpass.

The jury trial was waiting to give a verdict, and Andy convinced them that the crash was an accident, and the irony is he didn’t even know the truth about the accident.

Later on, Andy visits Laurie and Jacob in the hospital. He found out Jacob was in a coma and Laurie was seriously injured, and then he left for home, where he sat in Jacobs’s room and started reflecting.
