Did season 2 have great actors and writing? Yes. Was at as great as season 1/novel? No. With only 1 episode left, season 2 lacks an over-arching story that season 1/the novel had. S2 was all about how the characters evolved and, in a way, a look at their daily lives. But what are characters good for without a great story? (By saying this, I'm not at all that S2 was bad - it was enjoyable to watch - but it did lack narrative.

I can see why they wouldn't want to do S3, given this was originally brought to screen as a limited series and they extended it past the source material because of all the love for the characters. But yes, so far, S2 does explore the aftermath of the characters, but it's not set up for long term story telling.

I'm upset, but think it's a wise decision. I don't know how long they can draw out what happened in S1 for and since that's the main premise of the show, it kind of needs to end when that story line is finished. S2 is turning out nicely, but I just don't see how much longer they can harp on Perry for.

Oh I really hope they cancel. The first season was so beautiful and the ending was sophisticated, with the perfect balance of what was explained and what wasn't. This was the pivotal example of a show that brought their own quality down by trying to be too explicit in explaining things to the audience. Not to mention, the addition of Meryl Streep had to be EXPENSIVE and I can't imagine they're seeing much of an ROI.
Season 1 was analogous to an Oscar Winner, letting the audience think and come to their own conclusions and interpretations. Season 2 is a tabloid, flat out telling you all the theories you should be coming up with.

The 3rd season please do not runout on the best show on STREAMING TV. After the 3rd season who cares. Seeing how Celeast fairs in court. Most Judges would not let Grand mother have the boys.

The thing is, the only reason there's a season 2 in the first place is that they tried to milk the success of the first one which was intended to be a standalone. Without a book source, they're making up all the stories. This can only go on for so much longer.

I think the final episode of season 2 brings things to a nice close. I'll not include any spoilers, but while there are a few things left open-ended, most viewers will likely consider this a good ending point for the show.

The season finale was a good concluding point for the series so having watched it, I will be surprised (and disappointed) in a 3rd season.

I was shocked there was even a season 2. I still haven't started watching the new season!

You may want to be careful reading comments here if you haven't seen season two. We've been discussing whether the end wrapped things up properly, and sooner or later an unmarked spoiler will sneak in. It's a good end, I think, so it would be a shame to have it spoiled.

Sidereel is right. :(
Gosh this is disappointing....and not so much cancel as there was never any intention for this to go longer than 2 seasons. I am not happy. I love the show and want to see what happens next....oh well. :(

The actors and the characters they portray are excellent. There is so much more in their lives to explore that i'm sure good writers can create a continuous storyline and tell it well.

The preview appeared to show them head in to confess. That is unrealistic and to very idealistic.
