What is the Bad Sisters season 2 release date? Murder mysteries have been a staple when it comes to TV and movies since the dawn of time. And since 2022, Apple TV Plus has ushered in a brand-new show that all of us fans can’t get enough of: Bad Sisters.
Set in Dublin and filmed on location, Bad Sisters follows the five Garvey sisters—Eva, Grace, Ursula, Bibi, and Becka – as they become entangled with the law. Since its release, Bad Sisters has marked itself as one of the best comedy series out right now, and following the success of its freshman season, there is a hankering for more.
Be it more murder plots, or some fresh insurance scams, fans are dying to know what is next for the Garvey sisters in one of the best TV series on the platform, and luckily The Digital Fix is here to bring you all the intel. From the Bad Sisters season 2 release date, cast, trailer, and more – here is everything that you need to know about the hit Apple TV show.
Bad Sisters season 2 release date speculation
Currently, we don’t know when Bad Sisters season 2 will come out, but it’s likely to drop sometime in early to mid 2024.
The next chapter is definitely on its way — Bad Sisters season 2 was confirmed in November 2022, and in May 2023, Sharon Horgan revealed it’d all been written. Filming was due to start in September 2023, since the production is able to progress due to a local contract with Apple rather than a WGA-governed deal, meaning it was unaffected by the 2023 Writers Strike.
Given that the first season began filming in 2021 and was released in August 2022, we imagine this new season would follow the time-frame, and that a spring or summer release date next year will be most likely.
Bad Sisters season 2 cast speculation
The cast list of Bad Sisters season 2 will almost certainly bring back Sharon Horgan and the rest of the Garvey sisters.
Horgan has confirmed it’ll continue the first season’s story, saying [via GQ] “I was interested in what would happen to these women next. And we’ll find out.” So it looks like we’ll be returning to the Garvey sisters.
This means that we’ll see Sharon Horgan be back as Eva, and Anne-Marie Duff, Sarah Greene, Eva Birthistle and Eve Hewson all back as Eva’s sisters. But in the sea of returning stars, there is one face that we don’t expect to see again.
Claes Bang is unlikely to reprise his role as Grace’s husband John Paul. John died at the start of season 1, and throughout the episodes, we learnt through flashbacks that he was killed by his wife. With his mystery already solved, John is pretty much done with Bad Sisters.
Here’s the expected Bad Sisters season 2 cast list:
- Sharon Horgan as Eva Garvey
- Anne-Marie Duff as Grace Williams
- Eva Birthistle as Ursula Flynn
- Sarah Greene as Bibi Garvey
- Michael Smiley as Roger Muldoon
- Brian Gleeson as Thomas Claffin
- Eve Hewson as Becka Garvey
- Daryl McCormack as Matthew Claffin
- Assaad Bouab as Gabriel
- Seána Kerslake as Theresa Claffin
- Jonjo O’Neill as Donal Flynn
- Yasmine Akram as Nora Garvey
- Saise Quinn as Blánaid Williams
As more casting news filters in, we will be updating this guide, so keep your eyes peeled as the list above continues to grow!
What will Bad Sisters season 2 be about?
Bad Sisters season 2 will look at the aftermath of John’s murder, and see what happens to the sisters as they try to put on a united front.
Killing someone isn’t something people generally shake off, and although we were only meant to get one season, Horgan was too intrigued by seeing what comes next for these characters. She herself said [via Variety]: “Usually, you don’t kill a man and get away with it. There’s collateral damage from that as well — there’s fallout.”
“I was interested in, emotionally, what would happen to these sisters and how it would affect them. Once I figured out what my way in would be, then I felt like, ‘Well, that could work.’”
What form that all takes is anyone’s guess. Grief, trauma, acting out, all of the above? Could more people die? We wouldn’t put it past anyone in the show. Stay tuned for updates.
