Will we see more of this American black comedy thriller series? Continue reading to learn more about The Consultant Season 2.
The first season of, “The Consultant,” which is a Tony Basgallop-created television series based on Bentley Little’s novel of the same name, has finally concluded its run on Amazon Prime Video. The viewers who haven’t already binge-watched it will almost certainly do so by the end of this weekend, once again making it one of the most popular series on the catalog in many countries.
By doing so, we are confident that this will result in numerous inquiries about an early renewal for the second season on social media platforms. As a result, if you have the same query, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve put together a brief summary of everything you need to know about the series’ current state. Here’s everything we know about The Consultant Season 2.
The Consultant: Is it renewed for Season 2?
As of writing this, we can confirm that the network has yet to announce the second season as the first season premiered all the episodes on Amazon Prime Video a few hours ago, making it unreasonable to ask for any news or updates about a potential second season as it is evidently too soon for any major network to make such significant statements in such a brief period of time.
The series received mixed to positive reviews from critics, who praised Waltz’s performance while criticizing the series’ writing and pace. On Rotten Tomatoes, the series has a rating of 68% based on 25 reviews. On Metacritic, it has a score of 67 out of 100, indicating “generally favorable reviews.” To be honest, the overall reception of the show so far has been average, which might put the future of the series at stake for another season.
As a result, fans should wait for the network to officially confirm and acknowledge these details. In the meantime, take a look at some of the tweets from fans reacting to the season, which show that they kind of have been anticipating a second season, which can increase the likelihood of the show being renewed and exploring more character arcs and plotlines if the network considers the fandom’s request.
@amazon The Consultant is bloody brilliant. Please make a season 2.

#TheConsultant (Prime Video) is scary good & #ChristophWaltz steals the show as the ruthless boss. The mystery behind how he got to the top will keep you hooked. It’s unbelievable to think that this is a work of fiction given what has recently happened at the Bird app offices. pic.twitter.com/GfidmM9EsV

The Consultant Season 2: What to expect?
The official synopsis of the series states, “The Consultant is a twisted, comedic-thriller series that explores the sinister relationship between boss and employee. When a new consultant, Regus Patoff (Christoph Waltz), is hired to improve the business at the App-based gaming company CompWare, employees experience new demands and challenges that put everything into question… including their lives.”
It’s far too early to speculate on the plotlines, and the show’s creators haven’t disclosed any updates on the second season. So any plot details circulating on social media are just rumors. But, if we must speculate, the new season will undoubtedly pick up from the final episode, “Hammer,” in which viewers saw Mr. Sang’s Jungle Odyssey perform well in the market. Elaine’s moral compass is tested again, Craig confronts what has been haunting him all season, and Regus considers his next venture.
The cast members who are expected to reprise their roles are Christoph Waltz as Regus Patoff, Nat Wolff as Craig Horne, Brittany O’Grady as Elaine Hayman, and Aimee Carrero as Patti, Craig’s fiancée. The co-stars include Henry Rhoades as Tokyo, Brian Yoon as Sang, Tatiana Zappardino as Janelle, Michael Charles Vaccaro as Iain, Rumur Kristina Knowles as Lois, and Erin Ruth Walker as Amy.
Creator, showrunner, and executive producer Tony Basgallop is joined by executive producer, and executive producers Christoph Waltz, Steve Stark, and Andrew Mittman, alongside producer Kai Dolbashian. The Consultant is available to stream exclusively on Amazon Prime, with the newest movies, TV shows, and classic favorites available to stream instantly with over 150,000+ content for Amazon Prime members at no additional cost.
So, it is time for you to renew your membership plans, and explore another genre of original series and movies from the massive catalog that the streaming service offers to its members. Take a look at the official trailer below which showcases, “The employees of a mobile gaming company whose leadership is taken over by a sinister consultant, played by Waltz.”
