“Joe Pickett ss 2”: release date, announcement
The sequel to the crime drama “Joe Pickett” is officially announced in February 2022! Although even without this it was clear that the new season would come out. Since the picture is based on a series of detective books of the same name, there is plenty of material for adaptation. Also, we shouldn’t forget that the ratings of the past season 1 showed the viewer’s interest in the TV show.
Currently, the exact release date for season 2 of “Joe Pickett” has not been named, but unofficial sources claim that the release will take place in early 2023. We are waiting for official news.
Pickett has been running game warden for many years. Over the years, he has repeatedly been in trouble. As a very young boy, Joe was constantly worried about his father’s rudeness. Already at a conscious age, the main character often returned in his thoughts to the moment where one night he pointed a pistol at his parent, dreaming of shooting him. Only cowardice then saved the boy from a terrible step.
After moving to a new location, Pickett almost immediately runs into a local poacher, Ote Keeley, who has just killed a deer. At first, he tries to press on pity, referring to a hungry family. Joe realizes that all these are gimmicks, and writes out a fine. Trying to avoid punishment, Ote starts a scuffle with Pickett and grabs his pistol. But Joe again takes possession of the weapon, writes out a huge fine for Otto and lets go…
Joe is insanely happy in marriage, brings up two adorable daughters and always gets along with his wife. They solve even minor difficulties together, which gives them the strength to move on. Having moved to Wyoming, Marybeth dreamed of starting to work in her specialty, but the unexpected news of pregnancy interrupted her plans — now she will be constantly at home again.
The eldest daughter, Sheridan, has trouble communicating with her peers. She considers herself like her dad and loves to spend time with animals more. At school, they laugh at her because she reads scientific journals and is not interested in teenage hobbies. But the girl quickly finds a like-minded person. April Keeley becomes her new friend, the same outcast as Sheridan.
The Pickett family tries to find common ground with the locals, but people are often hostile. Everyone wants to hunt out of season, without a license. Everyone is used to solving issues with the previous game warden on the spot, and now many of them have lost their only earnings because of Pickett. Their grudge against Joe extends to his entire family.
Even in his last job, Joe was famous for having fined the mayor who fished without special permission. At a local holiday, a former game warden advises Pickett to be careful when issuing fines for Wyoming hunters. This advice is especially relevant the next morning, when Joe finds Ote’s body in the backyard of his house, pierced by arrows …
