This five-part miniseries is set during the years 1981 to 1991 in London and narrates the tale of a group of gay men. The series also deals with the subject of HIV and AIDS therefore it was very hard for the broadcasters to sell it. Then after its release, the series received critical acclaim for its representation of the emotional scenes. It also became the most-binge watched show on the platform. Now after the release of season 1, many people want to know if there will be season 2. Know about the details here.
What is the story of It’s a Sin?
The series tells the story of gay men living during the fast-developing HIV/AIDS crisis in the UK. It happened during the 1980s. This issue impacts their life and they suffer many problems because of it. In the five episodes of the series, we will get to see how they survive HIV while staying true to what they are.
Will there be season 2 of It’s a Sin?
The first season of It’s a Sin took the UK by the storm. All five episodes of the series released on Channel 4’s streaming platform All4. It received 6.5 million views at the end of January 2021. Now It’s a Sin series is available in the HBO Max in US. Therefore now it is very early to say if there will be season 2.
But when we see the success of season 1 we can safely say that the creators will create season 2. The two main characters of the series died however other stories in the story can get explored by the creators. The new season can deal with the aftermath of their death and its effect on their friends.
At the end of the season, we also saw Roscoe returning to his family after many years. At the beginning of the series, he ran away from his home because of his sexuality. Moroever, the second season may deal with the life of Ritchie’s ex-partner Ash because the viewers only know little about him.
The viewers are also ready to know more about Jill as she fought hard for the people of the LGBTQ community. Some of its members are her best friends. If the new season gets the green light from the creators we can expect it to release in 2022. But we have to wait to get the renewal news from the creators.
