 The Girl Before are now streaming on HBO Max. If you quickly binged the episodes and are wondering if there will be more, you’ve come to the right place! Here’s what we know about The Girl Before season 2.

The new HBO Max series gives audiences a lot to unpack. We can best describe the unsettling psychological thriller as a tale of loss and heartache, with a murder-mystery at the center. HBO Max released all four episodes on Feb. 10, but is that all there is? Spoilers ahead!

Final spoiler warning! If you have not watched The Girl Before on HBO Max, go stream all four episodes before reading ahead. 

Is The Girl Before season 2 happening?

The Girl Before stars David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jessica Plummer, and Ben Hardy, a very talented cast that beautifully portrayed their roles — particularly Hardy, who fooled us until the very end. He played the nice guy well, too well. Audiences didn’t see him being the killer until it was too late. The story is based on JP Delaney’s 2018 novel of the same name and was released on BBC One in 2021. So, to U.S. audiences, it’s a new series, but not to our neighbors up north.

At this time, there’s no confirmation a second season will happen. However, even though the series is not new, it’s not old enough for talks of a renewal to not be a possibility, especially if U.S. audiences show interest. In sites such as IMDb, though, The Girl Before is listed as a “miniseries,” so there are likely no plans to renew it.

Would you like to see The Girl Before get another season on HBO Max? What did you think about season 1? Should season 2 follow another set of characters or continue the same story? As soon as we learn more details, we’ll update this post! Stay tuned!
