What’s This TV Show About?
A Hulu counter-terrorism drama based on the Lawrence Wright non-fiction book, The Looming Tower stars Jeff Daniels, Tahar Rahim, Wrenn Schmidt, Bill Camp, Louis Cancelmi, Virginia Kull, Ella Rae Peck, Sullivan Jones, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Peter Sarsgaard. The story explores the rise of Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda, beginning in the late 1990s. It also delves into the issue of whether the tug-of-war between the FBI and CIA could have accidentally helped set the stage for the tragedy of September 11, 2001 (i.e. 9/11). As the personal and professional lives of the FBI’s New York-based I-49 Squad and the CIA’s Alec Station in Washington, DC reach a crescendo, Al-Qaeda operatives set to work in the US, to bring their evil plans to fruition.
Unless they decide to publicize its viewership, it is hard to predict whether Hulu will cancel or renew The Looming Tower for a second season. It’s billed with the fuzzy “limited-event series” terminology, and is based on a non-fiction account of a historical event, so it could end up being a one-season mini-series. By the same token, the events of September 11, 2001, and its aftermath, still loom large over both United States and the world, so the story needn’t end here.

4/18/18 update: The first season finale of The Looming Tower has been tagged as the “series finale” so there won’t be a second season.
