Creator Brad Ingelsby talked to Esquire about the possibility of a second season. “We didn’t ever talk about returning … it’s very much a closed story,” he said before the finale. ” … But I think if we could ever crack a story that was as emotional and surprising, then I think maybe there’s a conversation. I don’t have that in my head right now, but I mean, listen, I love Mare. If we could ever give her a great season, I would certainly consider it.”

Winslet spoke to TVLine about revisiting the character, too. “I would absolutely love to play Mare again,” she said. “I miss her, I really do. It’s the strangest thing. I feel like I’m in mourning.”
