Has Dark Winds been renewed for a second season?

Yes, Dark Winds will come back for another season. All of the first season’s episodes, which concluded on July 17, 2022, have been shown on the network. AMC+ announced on June 23, 2022, that the show had been renewed for a second season after a week of anticipation. The television series has won praise for its portrayal of Native Americans and is based on the Leaphorn & Chee book series by Tony Hillerman. The series has also received generally positive reviews from both reviewers and viewers. Therefore, it was apparent that the series was created with the intention of being renewed for more seasons.

The network has not yet officially announced the precise premiere date for Dark Winds Season 2. A release date would seem far too soon, given that the renewal was only announced recently. On the plus side, it is believed that the following season will not be postponed and will instead be issued sooner than expected.

What to expect from Dark Winds Season 2?

The following season is anticipated to start up when the first season’s HózhóoNaasháa, which aired on July 17, 2022, ended. Maya Rose Dittloff wrote the episode, which was directed by Chris Eyre and Sanford Bookstaver. “Leaphorn, Chee, and Manuelito descend on the hiding place of the Buffalo Society, only to be confronted with difficult decisions that could change the course of the rest of their lives,” according to the episode’s official synopsis.

Therefore, it is anticipated that the premiere episode of Dark Winds Season 2 will follow this already-established idea. Additionally, it is reported to take up any cliffhangers and subplots from the previous season’s opening episode and plunge right into this universe with additional experiments, giving viewers something fresh to consider rather than the same old topics. In order to provide the greatest material and story while prioritizing these cherished characters, the network must entice viewers to stream the series.

Who might be cast for Dark Winds Season 2?

Fans are expecting to see the following actors come back in the next season of Dark Winds, too:

  • Zahn McClarnon as Joe Leaphorn
  • Kiowa Gordon as Jim Chee
  • Jessica Matten as Bernadette Manuelito
  • Deanna Allison as Emma
