What’s next for Eyewitness? Recently, creator Adi Hasak spoke with Deadline about the future of the USA Network series.
Based on the Norwegian show Øyevitne, the drama follows two teenage boys who witness a murder while trying to hide a secret of their own. The cast includes Gil Bellows, Tyler Young, James Paxton, Julianne Nicholson, Matt Murray, and Tattiawna Jones.
In the interview, Hasak revealed Eyewitness was sold as an anthology series, with season two featuring a new story and new characters:
The show was sold as an anthology. I’m really enamored with shows likeAmerican Horror Story and American Crime. I told USA that this would be an anthology called Eyewitness where every season would be told from the point of view of someone who witnesses a crime. That meant that the show would be resolved at the end of Season 1.
The remarkable thing, though, about the show was that we know it’s a not a whodunit. By the end of the first eight minutes we know who the killer is, and in that sense what this really is — it is a character study trapped inside a thriller. So it’s not one of these shows, a murder in a small town. What that allows is to put almost all the genre components on the side and then delve in the characters and in the relationships, the marriage of the sheriff, the two gay boys, and the FBI agent and her sister.”
What do you think? Did you watch the Eyewitness series premiere? Will you watch the first season?
I love eyewitness. I definitely think that USA Network needs to make a second season, because this show was amazing
I am a dedicated fan of this show and would definitely love to see it return for season 2. Please consider this request.
I meant Philip and Lukas 😉 and if u change their gay characters it won’t b as exciting and it won’t b as unique a show
I loved the show eyewitness and the characters and everything about it and I know there is probably nothing anyone can do about this at this point but it shouldn’t be an anthology series so many people have fallen in love with Phillip and Tyler and your just going to change all of that?? Maybe you could have the same characters and just introduce a few more, create a love triangle, or bring philips biological dad into the story you know??
It would be ridiculous not to renew it for another several seasons. The show is already up for an award, overall praise and huge fan demand with a growing audience as the word is getting around. USA Network didn’t do a great job at promoting Eyewitness so it was mostly up to the fans to do it for them. If they put a little more effort into it, I’m sure the ratings would also be much higher.
i really hope there is a season 2.. i’m 48 years old and love this show. its everything i like in a tv show. praying for saeson 2
Hope to see a second season with the same cast! Great acting!
Great show. Loved every episode and hope it continues.
Great show looked forward to it Hope it continues
:I enjoyed this show and would like to see it return. Obviously the 1st season Stirling has ended but I would like to see a 2nd season with the same cast. Hopefully that somehow can be worked into season 2.
Binged watched all 10 episodes yesterday and loved it. I found out about on on the Norwegian blog about Skam.
