Season 1 of The Horror of Dolores Roach ends on a cliffhanger, leaving viewers to wonder if the show would return for season 2. The Horror of Dolores Roach, based on a podcast of the exact same name, takes viewers on a journey through the homicidal exploits of its eponymous heroine. In the opening minutes of The Horror of Dolores Roach, Dolores returns to her old Washington Heights neighborhood after serving 16 years in jail to cover up for the atrocities of her ex-boyfriend, Dominic. Her neighborhood has been greatly gentrified, and the sole familiar spot she discovers is Empanada Loca.
To her chagrin, what looks to be a mirage in the middle of nowhere later causes her to clash with police authorities and almost puts her into prison. Dolores lives and avoids being sent back to prison by avoiding law enforcement at the end of The Horror of Dolores Roach season 1. Her journey, however, finishes on an uncertain note, raising the question of whether her tale will keep going in The Horror of Dolores Roach season 2.
Will The Horrors of Dolores Roach be renewed for season 2?
There isn’t any official notice release regarding the renewal of The Horrors of Dolores Roach Season 2. However, considering the release schedules of other similar shows, it is possible to predict when the series’ season 2 will launch if it is green-lit. For example, series like Upload should ideally have a season 2 premiere two years following the debut of the initial season. In the past, though, Amazon has waited up to two years to renew programs like Good Omens and broadcast their second seasons four years after season one’s premiere. This might indicate that fans will have to wait a long time for any positive news about The Horror of Dolores Roach’s season 2 release date.
The Horror of Dolores Roach’s original podcast, on the other hand, already has a season 2, providing enough source material content for the show’s next chapter. As a result, the show’s makers might be able to construct season 2 more quickly than series that follow unique themes. As a result, if Amazon renews The Horror of Dolores Roach for a second season in the near future, viewers may anticipate it to arrive before the end of 2024.
Who might be cast for The Horrors of Dolores Roach Season 2?
Because virtually all of the main characters, with the exception of Dolores, died at the conclusion of The Horror of Dolores Roach season 1, season 2 will most likely include a new cast and just the reappearance of Justina Machado as the titular serial killer. Because Flora, the stage actress who plays Dolores in a theatrical adaption, becomes an important element of Dolores’ story at the conclusion of season 1, Jessica Pimentel might repeat her role as Flora in season 2.
Aside from them, additional supporting cast members such as Kita Updike (who portrays Nellie) and Jeffery Self (who plays Caleb) may return in season 2 if they survive the conclusion of season 1. If The Horror of Dolores Roach season 2 sticks to the plot of the original podcast’s second season, it will almost certainly include new characters. However, the finale of Season 1 suggests that the program will depart from the basic plot of the podcast.
The Horrors of Dolores Roach Season 2 plot speculation
In the last minutes of Season 1 of the classic The Horror of Dolores Roach podcast, the eponymous character begins living in New York’s underground sewers alongside other homeless individuals. Season 2 begins where Season 1 leaves off, focusing on Dolores’ moral desensitization as she battles to live in her new surroundings. At the end of season one, Amazon’s The Horror of Dolores Roach takes a different course, depicting how Dolores feels guilty about her deeds but is still possessed by her hatred for her ex-boyfriend, Dominic.
As the season one finale demonstrates, she even attempts to murder someone whom she believes to be Dominic. Season 2 may begin where we left off, focusing on Dominic finding some measure of redemption by suppressing her hatred for Dominic and submitting herself to police authorities in order to keep Nellie from being convicted. However, the parallels between The Horror of Dolores Roach and Sweeney Todd in Season 1 imply that things aren’t going to end kindly for the titular serial murderer in Season 2.
Where to watch The Horrors of Dolores Roach Season 2?
