The final of the Outsider season finally brought us face to face with Boogeyman, El Cuco. And it turns out he’s as confused as the rest of us. He doesn’t even know where he comes from. So Ralph Anderson, a young supernatural believer, opens El Cuco’s head wide with a large stone. The first season ended where Stephen King’s novel of the same name ends. So we all have to wait and see what happens in the second season.
Mendelsohn and Erivo are more likely to return. Ralph’s wife, Jeannie (Mare Winningham), suspiciously left the last episode, so it would make sense to wait for her to return as well. Religious state police ally Yune Sablo (Yul Vazquez) will also return. Also this time Claude Bolton as Paddy Considine will be the protagonist.
In the last scene of Holly and Ralph together, the detective tells her that she won’t mind working with her again. So Holly says she’s returning to Chicago but makes one or two stops on the way. A little later, we see Ralph and his wife, Jeannie, in their son’s grave, trying to solve everything. Holly is the star of a scary scene in which she sees Jack Hoskins in the mirror behind her and disappears. He checks his throat for some eczema of El Cuco, but there is nothing. There is still the possibility that El Cuco will still be alive. What could it be that would bring Holly and Ralph together for the second round against the bad shapeshifter?
Season 2 of The Outsider has not yet been confirmed. No release date is available. However, if The Outsider turned out to be winter, like this year. You may be able to see new episodes in early 2023.
