It seems that Anna has not let go of what got her in trouble in the first place. She is soon joined by another passenger assigned to the seat next to her.

Sometime later, Anna wakes up after drinking multiple small bottles of vodka. She goes to the bathroom and finds her seatmate dead. Anna alerts the flight attendant, but he does not find a dead body. Once again, no one believes Anna. Back in her seat, she finds her seatmate’s metal mirror. Will Anna solve another murder in The Woman in the House Season 2?

Netflix has not confirmed if The Woman in the House will return for another season. The Woman in the House is listed as a limited series. While audiences might find the murder storyline somewhat tantalizing to watch, will it carry into a season 2? Some critics believe despite the Netflix show being only eight episodes; it drawled on.

Accorsing to Entertainment Weekly, “There’s no doubt that the showrunners want Woman to be a parody, but the humor is oddly toothless — and satire without a point of view is like a casserole with no crunch.” Netflix will have to wait and see how well audiences react to Kristen Bell’s murder story to decide if it is worth a renewal.

The Woman in the House Across the Street From the Girl in the Window is available to stream on Netflix.
