Questions regarding Now and Then Season 2 have already been doing the rounds. The pilot season of the show, which premiered on 20th May 2022, received decent reviews from the audiences. Having a 71% overall Rotten Tomatoes rating, the series has had a gripping effect on its fans.
Created by Ramon Campos, Gema R. Neira, and Teresa Fernandez Valdes, the series is currently exclusively available to stream on Apple TV+. Provided that the first season ended just a week ago, not much is known regarding Now and Then season 2. However, we have gathered all the information we could regarding the show renewal. To find out more about it, continue reading ahead.
Now And Then Season 2 Cast
As previously stated, we do not know much about the exact status of the second season (if any). Although, based on the first season’s ending, we can predict who may appear in the follow-up season. It is highly plausible that several of the leading cast members will reprise their roles in season 2.
We expect Marina de Tavira to reprise her role as Ana Vargas. Marina is a Mexican actress who has appeared in multiple movies, including Roma and This is Not Berlin. Her most critically acclaimed role was for Roma, and she also received an Academy Award nomination for the said role.
Rosie Perez may return as Flora Neruda. Perez is an American actress, choreographer, and dancer who had her breakthrough with the movies Do The Right Thing and White Men Can’t Jump. She is an exceptional actor, having received a PrimeTime Emmy Award for her work in Living In Colour and a nomination for The Flight Attendant.
The role of Marcus Herrero, portrayed by Manolo Cardona, is likely to make a potential comeback. Marcus is a Columbian actor, having done multiple movies and telenovelas such as the Rubirosa trilogy.
Maribel Verdu’s character of Sophia Mendieta may also return for the new season. Verdu is an immensely talented Spanish actress who has acted in various movies, including Pan’s Labyrinth and Seven Billiard Tables. She is also the recipient of an Ariel Award and a Goya Award, among others.
Jose Maria Yazpik may return as Pedro Cruz, Soledad Villamil as Daniella, and Zeljko Ivanek as Sullivan. Further, Jorge Lopez, Dario Yazbek Bernal, Alicia Sanz, Alicia Jaziz, Jack Duarte, and Miranda de la Serna may return in the sophomore season as well.
Moreover, new additions to the cast are also possible. While we are not currently aware of who these new additions are, we do have our eyes and ears open for any future announcements. Make sure to keep track of this space for updates on the exact cast of Now and Then Season 2.
Now And Then Season 2 Release Date
The season 1 finale, Tape 35, aired on 24th June 2022. Keeping it in mind that this was just a week ago, it is not surprising that there is little known about the status of Now and Then Season 2.
However, based on the pilot season’s cliffhanger ending, it is plausible that the show renews for a second installment. If the creators decide to renew the series, the follow-up season could release sometime in the summer of 2023. This one-year gap between consecutive seasons is quite standard. It gives the team just enough time to build up the hype amongst fans without making them wait too long and becoming irrelevant.
Further, the first season was eight episodes long and dropped its first three episodes at once. The rest of the season followed a one-episode-a-week format. Judging by this, season 2 could potentially release in a similar way. Releasing three episodes at once provides viewers with just enough information to build up the show’s hype. Therefore, this format is something the creators could truly profit from.
The predicted release date is purely an assumption. This is because there is no official news regarding whether season 2 will even happen or not. To renew the series, Apple TV+ will first evaluate the first season’s performance and, based on that, decide the faith of the upcoming season.
Now And Then Season 2 Storyline
The official synopsis of season 1 states,
“On the eve of college graduation, six best friends embark on an epic weekend to celebrate—but it takes a fatal turn. Nearly 20 years later, the survivors are reluctantly reunited by a blackmail text threatening to expose the truth about that fateful night.”
Currently, there is no official synopsis available for Now And Then Season 2. Nevertheless, the first season’s ending and different key plotlines have pointed us towards what the second installment entails.
As per the official synopsis of the season one finale, “Pedro gets unexpected news; Sofia shares her discovery; Flora follows Belinda’s footsteps.” Keeping this in mind, the second season could start from where the first season left off. All the previous episodes have laid down the foundation for the upcoming season. It will be interesting to see how the writers further expand the storyline.
Unsurprisingly, the trailer is unavailable if the status of Now And Then Season 2 remains unconfirmed. However, once the creators renew the series for a new season and the show goes into production, a trailer will soon follow. We expect the trailer to drop about a month before the release of season 2.
Till the team releases the trailer of Now And Then Season 2, viewers can rewatch the trailer for season 1. The first season’s trailer provides great insight into what the show brings. Fans can use the first season’s trailer and compare it to the entire storyline of the same season to predict what the upcoming season may hold.
