Deadloch is a crime comedy TV show available on Amazon Prime Video. It follows the story of senior sergeant Dulcie Collins and Detective Eddie Redcliffe as they investigate a series of murders. The show combines elements of crime and humor as Dulcie and Eddie find themselves in hilariously awkward situations while trying to catch the killer, who specifically targets cis-het men. If you’ve already watched Deadloch, you might be wondering if the show has been renewed for Season 2 or if it has been canceled.

What is Deadloch about?

The once quiet and pleasant city of Deadloch has transformed into a place of anxiety, mistrust, and covert intentions. Every episode explores what life feels like in a tiny town when bodies start turning up, from the chit-chat of everybody trying to make sense of what’s happening to the detectives’ attempts to keep specific details of the case hidden from the public. With a dash of humor, the show delves into serious matters like gentrification, misogyny, queer love, death, and grief.

Has Deadloch Been Renewed for Season 2?

As of now, Amazon Prime has yet to renew Deadloch for a second season. When deciding whether to continue a series, Amazon Prime considers factors like the initial viewership and the rate at which viewers drop off. Some shows are quickly renewed or canceled, while others take several months to decide. 

The creators of Deadloch and the Amazon executives have not confirmed the production of a second season. However, there have been hints from McCartney, one of the show’s creators, suggesting the possibility of additional seasons. Considering all this, we believe Deadloch will likely be renewed for a second season.

Deadloch Season 2 Cast

Given how Deadloch season 1, episode 8 ended, a potential second season cast would include Kate Box and Madeleine Sami, who played Dulcie and Eddie, respectively. The finale ended with the detective duo, who, despite their differences, managed to create a terrific work dynamic, heading to Darwin to investigate a new case.

Box and Sami are undoubtedly the Amazon Prime Video series stars. Therefore, a possible season 2 without their hilarious and heartfelt characters wouldn’t make sense. Suppose the streaming service renews Deadloch for a second season. In that case, it’s possible that the show would introduce a slew of new cast members. A different city calls for new characters, meaning that Tom Ballard as Sven Alderman, Leonie Whyman as Tammy Hampson, and others probably won’t return.

Deadloch Season 2 Release Date

If Amazon Prime Video renews Deadloch for season 2, it likely won’t air until fall 2024, at the earliest. Streaming shows typically take a year to write, film, and edit before being released.

But plenty of factors might hinder this process, including the number of episodes in the season, the length of episodes, the budget of the series, and the amount of special effects. A possible second season of Deadloch could come out at the end of next year, but fans will have to wait for official word.

What will be the story of a possible second season?

Deadloch season 1 ended with Dulcie and Eddie catching the killer they had been chasing for eight episodes – Ray McLintock.  The manipulative, Ray, targeted and murdered abusive men in the name of feminism and wholeheartedly believed he was doing the right thing. During a confrontation between Ray and Dulcie, Ray stabbed her in the stomach before running away. Thankfully, she wasn’t critically injured and readily received medical attention. 

Eddie chased Ray, and Dulcie later caught up to them. Ray jumped into a body of water, where a tree branch impaled and killed him. Following Ray’s death, Deadloch jumped ahead two months and featured Dulcie and Eddie moving to Darwin to investigate Eddie’s former partner’s murder. If Amazon Prime Video renews the show for a second season, it would likely focus on the detective duo attempting to solve Bushy’s case.
