“I Know This Much Is True ss 2”: release date, announcement
The continuation of the action-packed drama “I Know This Much Is True”, if it appears, is not earlier than May 2021, since Mark Ruffalo is actively involved in creating films under the Marvel brand. The famous Hulk is tired of being an actor of one role and is now trying himself in new roles.
HBO has not yet confirmed rumors about the next season of the show, since Ruffalo signed a contract for only 1 season.
For many years, the mother of Dominick and Thomas spent her children living in love and harmony. True, step-father was constantly tyrannizing Tomast, and Dominick could easily give back. As time passed, Thomas’s strange habits began to frighten family members. Despite his strange behavior, even his stepfather did not turn his back on the schizophrenic guy, although he sent out unpleasant phrases addressed to him.
When the boys grew up, the mother died of cancer. Everyone experienced grief in their own way. Stepfather tried to support his wife in the last days of her life, Dominick decided to update the kitchen, in which the repair was made more than 50 years ago. And Thomas went into himself, because for him there was no longer a difference between the real world and the fictional world.
After a couple of years, Dominick got married, but, unfortunately, all this was a short-lived happiness. A recently born child passed away and everything went to a divorce. The only thing Dominick was glad about was that his mother did not see her children being tormented now. Thomas’s life, too, was getting worse. He can no longer control his actions, scaring others with his aggression.
The last terrible trick of Thomas was the following. He came to the central library to cut off his hand. Having taken Thomas to the hospital, the doctors had to amputate the limb, because otherwise it could have had more sad consequences. Upon arrival at the mental hospital, Thomas stops taking antibiotics and his condition deteriorates sharply.
Relations between brothers are getting worse and worse. Dominick no longer knows how to help Thomas and what to do to make his behavior normal. But along with this problem, other troubles are connected, which he needs to solve urgently.
Will at least Dominick be able to build his own destiny, start a family and find true happiness? His relationship with Dr. Patel can not be called standard, but there is a possibility that they can exist for a long time on one love. Maybe season 2 will help us figure out how the fate of the two brothers develops?
