The Erin Brockovich-inspired series premiered on IMBd TV on 15th July 2021. Due to the excellent storyline and impeccable cinematography, it was successful in attracting a considerable audience. Ever since its first episode aired, fans started questioning about the show’s sequel. And keeping fans in mind, we did some research, and here is everything you need to know about Rebel Season 2.
Let’s begin now!
Is the Rebel Season 2 confirmed?
Sadly, ABC has canceled the show, and up till now, only 5 episodes of the show have aired. So what were the reasons behind this decision?
First, it was not an easy decision to make, and the streaming site announced the cancelation news after a month of judging the ratings and viewership. The show’s current rating did not match the required rating for the show’s successful running.
Meaning it was not reaching the audience the showrunners had in mind, and consequently, they had to take this step.
What is the Release Date for Rebel Season 2?
The show has ABC canceled the show, so naturally, there is no release date either.
However, don’t be disheartened because some shows get picked up by other streaming sites. One such recent example is Lovecraft Country. After HBO canceled the show, Sarah Green signed the deal with Apple and saved the show.
So we are hoping that Vernoff will also do something similar to give the fans a second Rebel season.
Moreover, some other insiders reported that the fans can still save the show by somehow increasing the ratings. If the show does well, then the streaming site won’t take long to announce the renewal.
If the upcoming episodes receive more attention, then Rebel might have a second shot. And if everything works out, expect the second season to come out in mid or late 2022.
Will the Same Cast Return for the Season Two?
The show has Katey Sagal in the lead playing the character of Erin Brockovich, an activist.
When the cancelation news went viral, she also turned to social media to express how shocked she was. As the second season of Rebel is not happening, Katey Sagal won’t be returning as Annie either.
Other cast members include; Abigail Spencer as Dr. Misha, Andy Garcia as Cruz, Tamala Jones as Lana, John Corbett as Grady Bello, and other talented actors.
If somehow miraculously the show gets renewed for a second season, expect the same cast to return. Depending on the storyline, there might be some new additions too.
What Will the Plot of Rebel Season 2?
We really don’t need to worry about the plot for season 2 because the show is getting canceled. But for the sake of fans, we’ll discuss the plot too!
Disclaimer: it will be very heartbreaking to read while knowing that the show got canceled!
The first season explored the comedy genre while revolving around Annie “Rebel” Bello’s character. She is an advocate, but the plot twist is that she does not have a law degree! Annie is everything a woman is, from being rebellious to hilarious. The character has a soft side too, but not many people know about it.
The second season would also continue with the same story, every new episode showing the new adventures in the activist’s life.
The writers did not get a chance to reveal the plot details of the second season because the show got canceled mid-way the first season aired.
The Reaction of Katey Sagal and Krista Vernoff After the Cancelation News
Not just these two but the entire cast was heartbroken after such an abrupt decision of ABC.
According to Sagal, it did not show its proper time to win people’s hearts, and it deserved one more chance. In addition to this, she also encouraged fans to make the hashtag “#saverebel” go viral. Surprisingly many fans even signed the petition, so that is positive news!
Vernoff was also taken aback by the cancelation news. Being the creator of such prestigious shows, Grey’s Anatomy, and its spinoffs, this news was a huge shock for her.
Where Can I Watch the Trailer for Rebel’s 2nd Season?
The 2nd season does not have any trailer yet. Since the show got canceled, don’t expect the trailer ever to come out!
However, if some other streaming sites pick up the show, then the trailer will most likely air 3 to 4 months before the official release of the show’s sequel.
That was all that you needed to know about Rebel’s sequel! And if we get to know more about the show, we’ll keep you updated.
