Life in a quiet town is, of course, quieter than in a metropolis, but sophisticated murders are not uncommon here either. Mare works as a detective at the police station, she has children, divorce and old mental trauma behind her back. But she doesn’t give up, especially when it comes to missing children. Not so long ago, she was not lucky enough to lose her own son…
“Mare of Easttown ss 2”: release date, announcement
The continuation of the detective “Mare of Easttown” has not yet been announced. After the success of the 1st season, the creators of the TV series began to think about its continuation, despite the fact that “Mare of Easttown” was originally planned as a mini-series. But the difficulty lies not only in re-assembling busy actors and offscreen specialists in one project, but also in writing a script that must be thought out to the smallest detail.
There is still talk about the season 2 of the picture, so the audience has every chance to see new episodes. But it is unlikely that their premiere will take place before 2023. We are waiting for official statements.
Mare’s life is full of troubles. Either an old woman calls her so that she rushes in early in the morning, because some guy is looking out of her window, then her own children, daughter and grandson are troublesome. And recently, a detective found out that her ex-husband had moved to the house opposite and was gathering everyone for a picnic near the house in honor of his engagement with his new lover. And although the old feelings are gone, there is nothing good for Mare in this.
The whole city knows her as an exemplary cop. She can rush in pursuit, is not afraid of the sight of blood, injuries and weapons. She is able to find a common language even with drug addicts, but she is not able to establish her own life. She is invited to basketball games. All of Easttown remembers her incredible shot that Mare made 25 years ago.
Mare herself is humble. She wants a quiet, calm life, in which there is no place for crime, murder, and most importantly – thoughts about the lost. She lives with her daughter, mother and grandson. The boy stayed with her after her son died. The boy stayed with her after her son died, and her daughter-in-law, a drug addict, was deprived of parental rights and sent for compulsory treatment.
In parallel, the story of a young mother named Erin is told. Left alone with a child in her arms and hoping for the help of a parent, she continues her life. The father of her child did not continue to build relationships with her and went to a girl named Brianna. Erin adores her child, but financial problems darken the happiness of motherhood.
Three weeks ago, Erin met a guy in a chat and decided on a date with him. Instead, Brianna comes to the right place with her gang. Reproaching Erin that the other day she wrote to her boyfriend, Brianna beats the girl, but the daughter of Mare intervenes and does not allow the irreparable to happen. It would seem that everything ended well. But the next day, Erin’s body is found in the river…
Mare will have to deal with this, find the culprit and discover many secrets. It’s hard to guess who the criminal is, but not for an experienced detective who gets one step closer to the killer every day. At the same time, Mare’s personal life crumbles to pieces. The relationship with her daughter is becoming more and more tense, and the thought of her lost son does not allow her to sleep peacefully at night…

- The TV show has been airing on HBO since April 18, 2021. Since initially “Mare of Easttown” was listed as a mini-series, it is difficult for the channel’s management to talk about the 2nd season. Nobody is ready for season 2 yet, but viewers are demanding more.
- The TV series was directed by Craig Zobel, who is involved in such works as “American Gods“, “The Leftovers”, “Westworld” and others. At the same time, Kate Winslet acted as a producer on the show “Mare of Easttown”.
- The plot is not based on any real stories and all coincidences are accidental. This is stated at the beginning of each episode in order to avoid condemnation from those people with whom similar stories happened, described in the picture.
- In each episode, the character Kate Winslet appears before the audience with absolutely no makeup. Craig Zobel has repeatedly spoken excellently about the professionalism of Kate Winslet, who not only plays her role brilliantly, ready to show herself with minimal makeup, but also never speaks out about the difficulties associated with filming. And what about her role in the film “Avatar 2“, for which the actress learned to hold her breath under water for 7 minutes! This was demanded by James Cameron, the director of the project.
