HBO Passes on Second Season of Stephen King’s “The Outsider”; Series Being Shopped Elsewhere

HBO‘s Stephen King adaptation “The Outsider” will *not* be returning to HBO for a second season, Deadline is reporting today, but that doesn’t mean the show is completely dead.

The site reports that the series “has been put into turnaround after HBO opted not to proceed with a second season.” They note, however, that “MRC, the studio behind the drama series adaptation of Stephen King’s novel, is taking Season 2 out to market.”

The second season was set to expand beyond the storyline from King’s bestselling novel of the same name, and it’s now being shopped to “premium networks and streamers.”

“We thank HBO for a great partnership in the first season, and for helping to bring in a massive audience who fell in love with The Outsider. We are looking forward to finding a new home for this remarkable series,” said MRC Television President Elise Henderson.

The debut season of the series was an Emmy-nominated success for HBO, but it sounds like they just never had much interest in anything beyond a limited one-season storyline.

“The Outsider” is a drama series that follows a seemingly straightforward investigation into the gruesome murder of a local boy. When 11-year-old Frankie Peterson’s body is found mutilated in the Georgia woods, police detective Ralph Anderson (Ben Mendelsohn) sets out to investigate – with eyewitnesses and physical evidence pointing to Terry Maitland (Jason Bateman), a popular high school teacher, Little League coach, doting husband and father. While the case appears ironclad, Ralph is baffled by the emergence of contradictory evidence that places his suspect in a neighboring city at the time of the murder.

The mysterious set of circumstances surrounding this horrifying crime leads Ralph, a seasoned cop still grieving the recent death of his own son, to bring in unorthodox private investigator Holly Gibney (Cynthia Erivo), whose uncanny abilities he hopes will help explain the unexplainable.
