Is Paper Girls renewed for Season 2?

As of August 1, 2022, Paper Girls Season 2 is yet to be officially confirmed by Amazon Prime Video. The first season ended with the finale episode, “It B Over,” released on July 29, 2022. Considering that the series ended a few days ago, any news or updates about a possible season renewal appear way too soon for any major network to make such significant remarks in such a short period.

Amazon Prime Video usually considers all the important factors like audience and critical response, viewership of the show, and potential future aspects that will expand the series for the streaming service’s benefit. When all these factors draw favorable conclusions about the streaming platform, then only the series has a fair chance to get renewed early. Amazon Prime Video may evaluate the series’ performance and reception before renewing it for future seasons. As a result, fans should hold off until the network confirms and acknowledges this information.

Paper Girls Season 2 Potential Release Date

Because the series has not been formally verified by the network, the prospective premiere date has yet to be acknowledged, and the status is neither here nor there. But if we have to predict the potential release date of Paper Girls Season 2, it might happen sometime around early to mid-2023, just like the first season the likely month can be July.

As all the eight episodes of Season 1 aired on July 29, 2022. Moreover, the series is heavily based on VFX, which can also contribute to shifts in premiere date if the series is renewed and special effects to complete the show takes some time. So, this is just speculation that the next season might follow the same pattern and be released in a similar time frame if the network decides to renew the series further.

Paper Girls Season 2 Expected Plot

There is no word on what the plot of Paper Girls Season 2 will entail, but several key plotlines have indicated possible scenarios and directions in which the series may go if renewed. As the first season of Paper Girls comes to a close, the writers wanted the climax to be “Wikipedia-proof” so that fans couldn’t just go online and find out what happens next.

Viewers should be aware that the series is based on a comic book which gives the creative team freedom to delve into many possible scenarios to expand this series which has led to much speculation and excitement among the fandom. 

Paper Girls Season 2: Is it renewed or canceled?

If we have to guess, the plot is expected to pick up from the finale episode of season one as the series ended on a major cliffhanger. The official synopsis of Season 1 Episode 8, It B Over, states, “Larry’s farm becomes ground zero for an Old Watch and STF battle. The girls are aided in their search for a way home by an unexpected ally.”

Hence, Paper Girls Season 2 is expected to continue the story in terms of characters and plotlines for another season starting from this precise moment of the finale episode to pick up any potential loopholes and cliffhangers. As highlighted above, all of the previous episodes have set the tone for the season, which will develop and expand in ways that will entice viewers to watch the show.
