Luckily for fans, the story of Maddie and her friends is not going to end there. There will be a season 2 of the show. In this article, we will take a look at the news related to the release of season 2.
The cast of season one includes The cast also includes Kristian Ventura as Simon Elroy, Spencer MacPherson as Xavier Baxter, Milo Manheim as Wally Clark, Sarah Yarkin as Rhonda, Kiara Pichardo as Nicole Herrera, Rainbow Wedell as Claire Zomer, and Nick Pugliese as Charley.
School Spirits season 2 release time
In June 2023, Paramount announced that the second season has been greenlighting the School Spirits. But don’t get very excited. Season 2 of the show will not return quickly.
In the renewal announcement, the studio made it clear that it has just been renewed, but the production for the second season will not hit the floors till 2024.
That means practically the season 2 of the show will have a release window in the latter part of 2025.
To make it more complicated, writers of America were on strike for a few months in 2023, and SAG-AFTRA also happened. It is not clear if School Spirits’ production faced a delay, but consider a few more months of additional delay.
It is not very hard to guess what the plot of season 2 was. Season 1 ended on a cliffhanger. Surprisingly, it turns out Maddie was never dead. Before the events happened in season one, Janet possessed her body.
Janet was a member of Mr. Martin’s support group. It is safe to say that Maddie will try to get her body back in season 2, which will be tricky for her. Even more tricky than to find out who killed her in the first place.
It is a great show, much more than a conventional murder mystery or paranormal thriller. The blend of college drama with murder, addiction, and grief makes it an entertaining watch. We can expect season 2 to be as good as season 1.
Maddie and Wally have a relationship?
Wallie and Maddie did not have any properly established relationship. Maddie was just focused on solving the crime related to her death, so failed to notice any romantic feelings. But in the first season of the show, it was clear that Wally had a soft spot for Maddie.
They both went to a school dance together, where they shared a kiss, but nothing happened after that in the growth of their bond. Fans will be waiting to see the direction in which love hoes in season 2.
