Obituary Season 2: Release Date, Cast, and Everything You Need to Know

Season 2 of Obituary, which premiered in Ireland and then went worldwide on Hulu, is in the works. The titular obituary writer, Elvira Clancy, has difficulties after financial cutbacks in her hometown. Since its premiere in Ireland, the show’s distinctive plot has received praise from critics across the world. So far, this is all the information we have on when Season 2 of Obituary will be available:

Obituary Season 2 Renewal Status

Obituary has not yet received word that it will return for a second season. Given that Obituary has just recently debuted internationally after its Irish premiere, the lack of concrete information about a second season is not surprising. Hulu and the Irish public service broadcaster RTÉ struck an agreement to transfer the rights to the United States, thus viewership will be a major consideration for the show.

We are all aware that streaming services consider viewership figures, and that it could be several months before they approve a second season. We all know by now that there are three things that go into a series’ renewal. To begin, how does it fare throughout the first two weeks? What about the show’s reception among viewers (and, to a lesser degree, critics)? Last but not least, is a second season warranted from a creative or narrative standpoint?

Since the series ending was somewhat shocking, we will refrain from giving too much away about the potential future of this program in the event that it is renewed. But Elvira has a lot of potential storylines that may work for a second season.

Obituary Season 2 Release Date

Since Hulu has not renewed the series, there is no set date for when Obituary Season 2 will premiere. Hulu is likely still assessing the show’s success based on its favorable reviews, particularly on IMDb, and its recent worldwide premiere. There may be an announcement about the show’s continuance in the future, considering these facts and Hulu’s history of renewing popular programs.

Obituary Story

The interesting notion of “Obituary” is what draws the audience in right away. As a result of the fresh approach of getting paid per item, Elvira resorts to murder in order to maintain a constant stream of employment. A further twist in this intricate storyline occurs when Elvira develops love feelings for a crime reporter.

The role of Elvira Clancy is played by the energetic Siobhán Cullen. The play has really benefited from her performance as an obituary writer facing difficulties in her line of work. The show’s creator, Ray Lawlor, has written a narrative that sticks out among Hulu’s extensive programming catalog.

Obituary Series Rating

The first episode of the Irish television series Obituary aired on RTÉ One on September 26th. Although the show is unrated on Rotten Tomatoes, it has received a lot of positive feedback on IMDb.

A total of 303 people have rated the show on IMDb, giving it a 6.7/10 rating. Going a little further, the picture has just over 60 ten-star ratings, 33 nine-star ratings, and 75 eight-star ratings, which means that slightly more than half of the viewers gave it a rating of eight stars or above. Though conducted on a limited sample size prior to its US debut, they are nevertheless impressive figures.

Obituary Series Review

Although I have problems with Lawlor’s writing, Siobhán Cullen’s portrayal of Elvira is delightful. She elevates the character to new heights with her deadpan delivery of speech, which is why you may not survive the second episode without her. I was reminded of Michael C. Hall’s early Dexter Morgan performances by her performance in this part. In spite of the terrible writing, Cullen managed to captivate me.

Obituary fails miserably in its attempt to be memorable. How awful is the show? Yes, but it falls short of its promise, which is the most annoying part. The short length of the series (only six episodes) is the main selling point of Obituary. This makes it a great option for those who want to binge-watch it.

Where to watch Obituary?

You can watch the first season of Obituary on Hulu. Famous for its extensive collection and straightforward design, this streaming service offers a broad variety of TV series, movies, and original material.


Expectations and hopes for “Obituary Season 2” are high, but the show’s fate is still up in the air. The show has a decent shot of making a comeback because of its fresh storyline, excellent actors, and the support of streaming services like Hulu.
