The Watchful Eye fans, how are you holding up? The drama mystery thriller’s final episode of season 1 was certainly jam-packed, and those residents of the Greybourne building just don’t know how to chill it on the murder.

Without giving away too many spoilers in case you haven’t watched the episode yet, you can expect to learn who killed Alice Greybourne Ward, plus another resident uses a pair of scissors to stab someone to death.

When our central character Elena (Mariel Molino) sees this, the person tells her “we’re going to need a shovel.” And that’s when the episode cuts to black. Talk about a cliffhanger! So naturally, we’re all wondering if a season 2 is going to happen after those events. We’ve got the answer for you below!

When does The Watchful Eye return with new episodes?

At the time of this writing, The Watchful Eye has aired all 10 episodes of season 1. Now the question is whether the show will get a season 2 order from Freeform. And that could give us an idea of when new episodes could potentially air.

Is season 2 of The Watchful Eye happening?

As of March 28, 2023, the cable channel has not renewed or cancelled the mystery thriller series. So right now we’re pretty much in limbo having to wait for the company to make a decision. This isn’t really uncommon since the inaugural season’s finale just aired.

Freeform is going to want to look at its viewership numbers and other factors to decide if a second season should happen. But hopefully they let us know soon! If a second season were to happen, new episodes would most likely air sometime in January or early February as the first season debuted January 30, 2023.

Joining Molino as Elena onscreen are Warren Christie as Matthew, Kelly Bishop as Mrs. Ivey, Amy Acker as Tory, John Ecker as Scott, Lex Lumpkin as as Elliott, Henry Joseph Samiri as Jasper, and Aliyah Royale as Ginny.
