'Hollywood' Season 2: Everything We Know So Far

Ryan Murphy's Hollywood is originally planned for a one time release but fans are begging for more.

Netflix has always been a home to titles that promotes equality and inclusivity.

One of its latest addition is a new series titled Hollywood that bravely tackles the unfair systems and biases across race, gender, and sexuality from Hollywood's Golden Age that still greatly resonates up to this day.

The show is originally planned to be a limited series with only seven episodes. The series was met with a fair share of criticism from movie and television critiques but was nonetheless loved by fans who can't stop clamoring for more.

Is there a chance for the streaming giant to bring Hollywood back? Let's find out.


Is Hollywood Season 2 Happening?

Despite the show's well reception and success, there are still no official talks about a possible follow up. Fans should remember that the show creators Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan originally conceived Hollywood for a limited series only.

However, there's a huge chance for the creators to revisit the miniseries and give fans more.

A fan commented on Murphy's Instagram post asking: "Are you planning a Season 2 with the same cast? Please say yes,"

The creator responded: "Well HOLLYWOOD was planned as a limited series, but it's become so popular that everyone is asking for another season. So who knows? I sure do love this cast though. Xo."

What Is Hollywood All About?

 Hollywood released in Netflix on May 1, 2020. If you haven't binge-watched the series yet, take a look at its official trailer below.



The mini-series follows the story of a group of aspiring actors and filmmakers as they try to break into the not-so-glamorous world of Hollywood. The series is set in a post World War 2 era and the group is met with extreme struggles just to get in the spotlight.

Issues on discrimination against gender, race, and sexuality are highlighted in the miniseries.

Hollywood went on to receive four Emmy nominations. Jeremy Pope is nominated for Best Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie, while Dylan McDermott and Jim Parsons both received nominations for Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie. Holland Taylor is nominated for Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie.


Will The Original Hollywood Cast Return For Season 2?

Nothing has been confirmed yet but there's a possibility that we'll be introduced to an entirely different cast if Hollywood gets season 2.

In an interview with THR, Murphy firmly said: "I would never follow the characters again,"

He added: "But, 20 years from there? I don’t know. It’s not something I’m thinking about; Netflix and I have not even discussed it and nor would we unless it had some huge success.

Murphy, who's done previous anthologies like American Horror Story and American Crime Story said Hollywood isn't designed to be like that.

"This was designed to be seven episodes. That’s kind of what it is," Murphy said.

Hollywood is currently available on Netflix.
