What’s This TV Show About?
Originally released on Spectrum’s On Demand platform, the second season of Manhunt, is subtitled Deadly Games. The second season of this true-crime anthology series stars Cameron Britton, Jack Huston, Gethin Anthony, Carla Gugino, Arliss Howard, Kelly Jenrette, and Judith Light. Season two follows one of the most complex manhunts on American soil following the deadly terrorist attack at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. Security guard Richard Jewell (Britton) is lauded as a national hero after he discovers a massive bomb at the Games and saves hundreds of lives by clearing the area. However, his public identity as a brave citizen quickly erodes when the FBI and the news media, led by driven crime reporter Kathy Scruggs (Gugino), falsely accuse him of being the bomber. As Jewell and his mother Bobi (Light) fight to clear his name, the real perpetrator, Eric Rudolph (Huston), remains at large and undetected as he carries out a series of bombings.
Season Two Ratings
Will Spectrum Originals cancel or renew Manhunt for season three? The first season of Manhunt (aka Manhunt: Unabomber) aired on Discovery Channel in 2017. The anthology series moved to Spectrum’s on-demand service for its standalone second season where it was seen by a limited audience in February 2020. Because the COVID-19 pandemic caused a delay for the production of CBS’ regular shows, the network picked the rights to air season two for Fall 2020. With this convoluted history, it’s difficult to know if this show is considered a financial success but, CBS paying to air season two doesn’t hurt. If the network wanted to air additional seasons, that wouldn’t hurt either but we’ll have to wait and see. I’ll update this page with breaking developments.
