Will we see more of this crime drama television series? Continue reading to learn more about The Calling Season 2.
The new series explores the premise and follows detective Avraham Avraham, a New York City police detective, and religious Jew, who has a special knack for solving crimes. The first season ends on a potentially explorable storyline, which has led to much speculation among the viewers about whether the show will get an early renewal or not.
Given how the network has recently renewed a slew of shows, there is a chance it might expand its catalog of original movies and shows. On the other hand, Rotten Tomatoes reported an 84% approval rating from the audience.
On IMDb, the series has a score of 7 out of 10 with 483 reviews. which makes it likely that the network might be inclined to grant the show for more seasons if the demand is still there. Hence, anything is possible, as this series might improve in new episodes and deserves another chance to be improved in terms of writing. So, if you’re wondering the same thing, then you’ve come to the right place. We’ve compiled a quick summary of everything you need to know about the current status of the series.
Here’s everything we know about The Calling Season 2.
Is The Calling renewed for Season 2?
As of November 15, 2022, the network has yet to announce the second season of The Calling officially. We know that the first season ended with the finale episode, “Blameless and Upright,” which was released on November 10, 2022, along with the rest of the episodes.
Given that the show just finished its first season a few days ago, any news or updates about a potential second-season renewal seem far too soon for any major network to make such significant statements in such a short period of time. Hence, in the meantime, fans should wait for Peacock to formally verify and acknowledge this information.
As we understand your anticipation of knowing what’s next in the tale, you should know that the network may assess its performance and reception before renewing the series for future seasons. Take a look at some of the tweets by the fans demanding the renewal of the series below:

The Calling Season 2: Expected Release Date and Time Slot
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. If the show is renewed in a couple of weeks, just like the other TV shows, we can predict that the potential release date might happen sometime around 2023 with the same premiere time as other shows on the streaming service, which is 3.00 a.m (EST). In order to receive updates on when The Calling Season 2 premieres on the streaming platforms, interested viewers can also enable notifications. Until then, fans should keep a close eye on the social media handles of the show to learn about any new updates.
The Calling Season 2 Potential Plot
The series is expected to continue and explore the plotline further, which establishes that NYPD detective Avraham “Avi” Avraham relies on his own belief in humanity to solve crimes. As seemingly routine investigations turn upside down, Avi’s intuitive understanding of mankind guides his spiritual mission to do justice. But when humanity is not so easily found, the complexity of Avi’s cases heightens, often to life-threatening stakes. The series is also expected to continue the plot from the first season’s last episode in which the viewers got to see that as Avi solves Elisabeth’s disappearance; Paul plans to leave New York; Hanney has a rare moment of honesty.
The Calling Season 2 Cast and Crew
The Calling is an American crime procedural drama television series created by David E. Kelley for Peacock. The main cast members of the series who are expected to reprise their roles with their character names in the next season if it is renewed are as follows: Jeff Wilbusch as Detective Avraham, Juliana Canfield as Detective Janine Harris, Karen Robinson as Captain Kathleen Davies, Michael Mosley as Detective Earl Malzone, and Tony Curran as John Wentworth.
Behind the production are showrunner, writer, and executive producer Kelley, whose lengthy career includes series such as “Picket Fences,” “The Practice,” “Ally McBeal” and “Big Little Lies.” Barry Levinson will also be credited as an executive producer and a director for multiple episodes. Hans Zimmer and Steve Mazzaro are collaborating to score the first season, which will take the format of eight hour-long episodes.
The Calling Season 2: Episodes and Streaming Options
Although the exact number of episodes for The Calling Season 2 has yet to be announced, if the series is renewed, we can expect at least eight episodes with a runtime of approximately 28 to 35 minutes, similar to the previous season.
