HBO has confirmed that “I May Destroy You” will not return for a second season.
HBO’s Chief Content Officer, Casey Bloys, has confirmed that I May Destroy You will not return for a second season.
Arabella Essiedu, the protagonist of Coel’s 2020 series, is a survivor of a rape who struggles to put her life back together.
Critics on both sides of the Atlantic had nothing but praise for I May Destroy You, which aired on BBC One in the United Kingdom and was awarded NME’s best TV show of 2020.
The Hollywood Reporter quotes Bloys as saying: “On I May Destroy You, Michaela Coel is thinking about what she wants to accomplish next.
“I don’t believe a second season of I May Destroy You is on the way. As for her future plans, “I’m sure we’ll get to work with her again in the future,” she said.
Fans and journalists alike slammed the Golden Globes nominations for snubbing the show, calling it a “utter outrage” and “bewildering” snub.
Deborah Copaken, the writer of Emily in Paris, was among those who expressed displeasure.
When asked if she was happy about Emily in Paris getting a nod, she replied, “Yes, I am.” “Yes. There is no doubt about that. I’ve never been nominated for a Golden Globe, and I’ve never even gotten close to seeing one up close.
“However, my wrath over Coel’s snub has dampened my excitement.” A lack of nominations for I May Destroy You is not only terrible, it’s the root of all evil.
“It’s an eye-opening, game-changing new show from one of Britain’s greatest talents,” NME wrote in its original review of I May Destroy You. Coel portrays her role with a defiant wit and nuance that is very impressive.
Arabella’s ordeals aren’t confined for fictional characters or cheesy horror films. I May Destroy You tells us that if we don’t take care of ourselves, who else will?
