The Girl From Plainville Season 2 Renewal & Release Date
The Girl From Plainville will not be having a season 2 as the show aired as a mini-series. And Hulu’s mini-series usually have one season. The first season premiered with its first three episodes on Hulu on March 29, 2022. After that, the rest of the five episodes aired every week. Each episode was 40 to 45 minimum long.
At the end of episode 8, postscripts appeared, making us think that the series has come to an end. These postscripts give viewers an insight into what happened after the trial and how Michelle and Conrad’s parents are living their lives after the tragic events. It shows how both the families got closure by the end of the trial. Hence, the Hulu mini-series has a perfect ending, and there seems to be pretty much no chances of the show getting renewed for The Girl from Plainville Season 2. There is no official release date or a potential release date for the second season.

Where is Michelle Carter now?
After being declared guilty of involuntary manslaughter, Carter was sentenced to 15 months. But, due to the Massachusetts state law, she got done with her prison service even before 15 months. According to this law, an inmate’s sentence can reduce by ten days if they show exemplary behavior that month. And so, on January 23, 2020, after serving 11 months and 12 days in Bristol County Jail, Michelle Carter became a free woman. Now, she leads a life away from the cameras and the public eye.
