Jason Bateman Provides Update on The Outsider Season 2
Jason Bateman has his say on the chances on The Outsider season 2.
'The Outsider' season 2 is almost as big a mystery right now as the origins of El Cuco. Fans are curious to learn more on the potential of the second season, but there are no reports so far to confirm or deny it.
To put some light on this, executive producer and Terry Maitland star Jason Bateman took it upon himself to provide a sort of an update. The actor may not be able to speak for everyone at HBO, but he did his best to shed light on some of the happenings behind the scenes.

The 51-year-old said,
"Well, I know that they’re talking about it, and Richard Price is playing with some ideas and taking some first steps as to what that second year might and feel like. Obviously, it’s a complete free-ball because the first season exhausted 100% of [Stephen King’s] book, the IP."
The Arrested Development star added,
"So, it’s really all up to him. I never like to step on the lawn of the writers. It’s something that I’ve always stuck with on Ozark."
Bateman continued, "I leave Chris Mundy completely alone, and I do my job as a director once I get the script. I chime in every once in a while and offer my opinion, but it’s always for the writer to take if they want and discard if they want."

Fans certainly loved the first season, and it goes without saying, they’re quite eager for the second season to commence. In fact, nobody would say ‘no’ to the opportunity to witness Ben Mendelsohn and Cynthia Erivo sharing the screen once more. Ralph Anderson and Holly Gibney deserve to rise again!
Meanwhile, the other significant reason fans are hoping for The Outsider season 2 is the fact that the first season ended with an ambiguous yet intentional cliffhanger involving the fan-favorite Holly Gibney. Could she be next in El Cuco’s line of possessions? There’s only one way to find out!
