Is Undone season 2 happening, and if so, when will it release and what will it be about? The animated Amazon Prime series was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg and Kate Purdy. Undone season 1 released in September 2019, with all of its eight episodes being directed by Dutch filmmaker and artist Hisko Hulsing.
Undone season 1 follows San Antonio native Alma Winograd-Diaz (Rosa Salazar), a young woman recovering from a nearly-fatal car crash. She’s visited by the spirit of her late father Jacob (Bob Odenkirk), who wants to solve his murder from years before. Alma steadily clashes with both her mother Camila (Constance Marie) and sister Becca (Angelique Cabral), all the while trying to decide if she wants to further pursue a romantic relationship with Sam (Siddharth Dhananjay). In supporting roles, Undone season 1 features Daveed Diggs, Tyler Posey, and Sheila Vand.
The Undone season 1 finale shows Alma’s attempts to change the past. She also discovers the shocking truth about her father's death. Just when Alma is seemingly ready to address unresolved emotional issues, a burst of sunlight changes everything. Undone’s co-creator, Bob-Waksberg, previously created the massively-successful Netflix series Bojack Horseman, and it seems that his new Amazon endeavor has much to explore. Here’s what to expect for Undone season 2.
Undone Season 2 Renewal
Amazon has not yet ordered Undone season 2. Most likely, the streaming service will take three to six weeks to assess viewing numbers and critic reviews before making a decision, as Undone is Amazon’s first original animation series. Undone season 1 currently holds a 100 percent Tomatometer score at Rotten Tomatoes, along with a 94 percent audience score. Given the blend of comedy and heavy drama, Undone could complement Amazon’s hit series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. It’s worth noting that Amazon’s last three dramedy series - Jean-Claude Van Johnson, The Dangerous Book for Boys, and Forever - only lasted one season.
Undone Season 2 Release Date Info
If Amazon chooses to move forward with Undone season 2, it’s likely that new episodes will premiere by the end of 2020 or early 2021. Given the series’ unique production aesthetic, it’s difficult to pinpoint an exact Undone season 2 release date, but one year seems like a reasonable time frame to complete filming and post-production. Then again, 18 months passed between Undone’s March 2018 season 1 order and the September 2019 premiere date. Fans can expect Undone season 2 to premiere sometime between September 2020 and March 2021, if it moves forward.
Undone Season 2 Story Details
Undone season 1 concludes with Alma traveling to Mexico and waiting for her father to emerge from ancient ruins. Becca shows up and convinces Alma to leave because it seems like the most logical decision. To be sure, however, Alma needs just a few more moments by herself. The final images suggest that Alma’s father may have indeed returned, as the visuals tease some type of revelation, and thus allow for various interpretations. Given the collective themes of Undone season 1, though - memory, trauma, mental health - it’s possible that Alma may be caught up in her own thoughts. Undone season 2 on Amazon will most likely explore Alma’s evolution as a woman while dealing with personal trauma.
