‘Renegade Nell’ Producer Talks Possibility of Season 2

The Disney+ Original series “Renegade Nell” arrived on the streamer on March 29th and has quickly become a favorite with audiences.

The show currently has an 82% Tomatometer rating on Rotten Tomatoes from reviewers and an 84% Audience Score.  Many fans are already starting to wonder if the show will return for a second season.

Renegade Nell” director and executive producer Ben Taylor recently revealed that a “possible” Season 2 was in development.  The news was shared in an interview with Radio Times where Taylor shared that a second season of the show is currently being written, including a “time jump” from the end of Season 1.  You can read snippets of that interview below:

“We’re now in the process of writing a possible second series, so, you’re able to take stock and figure out what would be, sort of, this, like, the 2.0 version and focus on the stuff that was really working, and do more of that.”

“I’m being stared at in the darkness. I know I can’t really say anything. I think… There’s going to be a time jump because of the time between, because we shot this [Season 1] over a year ago. So I think it’s buying that, and buying the thought that it’s been that many years since we caught up with these characters — partly just for the age of, like, Roxy and George are going to be visibly two years older.”

“It’s about where we leave the characters and what powers they have or don’t have by the end of series one, is sort of informing the jumping off point for series two. … I wish I could tell you, but there’s some crazy, crazy stuff that is in store.”

Disney has not confirmed a second of “Renegade Nell” has been greenlit so fans will still have to wait for an official confirmation.

In the series, Nell Jackson, a quick-witted and courageous young woman, finds herself framed for murder and unexpectedly becomes the most notorious outlaw in 18th-century England. But when a magical spirit called Billy Blind appears, Nell realizes her destiny is bigger than she ever imagined.
