The American drama series, Dopesick, has just released its final dose to the public on Hulu, and up ahead, we explore if the series will return for season 2, how many episodes are in the first season, and where to binge-watch the series now that it has ended.
Starring Michael Keaton, Peter Sarsgaard, and Will Poulter, developed by Danny Strong, Dopesick is based on the non-fiction book, Dopesick: Dealers, Doctors and the Drug Company that Addicted America by Beth Macy regarding the country’s addiction to Opioids.
Will there be a season 2 of Dopesick?
No, Dopesick will not be receiving a second season on Hulu.
The series was billed as a miniseries, which usually means that the narrative is concluded within one season. There have been a few exceptions to this rule, but Dopesick is not expected to return.
As the show is based on Macy’s book, the source material has had its majority covered in the series, leaving little to no room for the narrative to continue.
