American Rust Season 2 What We Know So Far About Release Date?

Showtime's “American Rust” premiered on September 12, 2021. It's based on Philip Myers' 2009 novel of the same name and takes place in the ideal setting for a crime show: a failing Rust Belt town in Western Pennsylvania where despair drives individuals to crime. It starred Jeff Daniels as Chief of Police Del Harris, who was morally divided and ultimately compromised. You wouldn't be the first to draw a parallel between that description and another 2021 Pennsylvania crime drama series on a premium cable network starring an award-winning actor (read: “Mare of Easttown”).

Despite the fact that “American Rust's” Season 1 ratings were not very high (according to TV Series Finale), and despite the fact that it faithfully reproduced the original material from Myers' book, the show nevertheless left plenty of potential for Season 2 and beyond. It's been a few months since the Season 1 finale episode of “American Rust” aired on November 7, so here's what we know so far about Season 2.American Rust Season 2: Release Date, Cast, Plot, Trailer, And Many More Updates!

When Will American Rust Season 2 Be Released?

“American Rust” appears to be dead as of late January 2022. On July 25, the Tribune-Review in Pittsburgh was the first to disclose that Showtime had canceled “American Rust,” along with a statement from the cable channel that provided additional context.

According to the Tribune-Review, Showtime's statement reads, “We can confirm that ‘American Rust' will not be renewed for a second season.” We'd want to express our gratitude to our partners at Boat Rocker, as well as our outstanding showrunner Dan Futterman and the rest of the fantastic writers, as well as our incredible ensemble led by Jeff Daniels and Maura Tierney.”

“American Rust” received a series order from Showtime in July 2019 after a couple of years in development hell (via Variety). Season 1 began filming in March 2021 (through Trib-Live) and broadcast in September 2021, following various pandemic-related delays. The season ended in early November, and with it came to the end of the “American Rust” saga, as we all know.

Who Is in the Second Season of American Rust's Cast?

There will be no Season 2 of “American Rust” because Showtime has canceled it as of late January 2022. As a result, fans of the Showtime series will have to bid their final goodbyes to Jeff Daniels, Maura Tierney, Bill Camp (“The Queen's Gambit”), David Alvarez (“West Side Story”), Alex Neustaedter (“Colony”), and the rest of the outstanding ensemble cast.

Daniels is introduced to the audience in Season 1 as Del Harris, the small-town police chief. Tierney portrayed Grace Poe, Del's love interest, while Neustaedter portrayed her son, Billy, who was left in a coma at the end of Season 1. Mark Pellegrino (“Supernatural”) rounded out the Poe family as Virgil, Billy's father, and Grace's husband. There's also Alvarez, who portrayed Billy's best friend Alex English, Henry Camp, and Julie Mayorga, who played Alex's sister (and Billy's ex-girlfriend) Lee. Finally, Rob Yang (“Succession”) made an appearance as Del's subordinate Steve Park, a figure who was set to play a larger part if Season 2 was confirmed.American Rust' Season 2: Will Showtime drama be renewed?

What Is the Plot of Season 2 of American Rust?

Season 1 concluded on so many cliffhangers that it felt quite obvious where the program could have gone next, as we observed in our article about whether “American Rust” would get a second season. The great twist is that having spent Season 1 investigating Billy for the murder of cop-turned-drug dealer Pete Novick (Jim True-Frost), Del is now accused of committing a triple homicide. Del was forced to kill two of Novick's associates as well as their 87-year-old relative in self-defense, in case you missed it. Del's deputy Steve Park was skeptical of his role in the killings at the end of Season 1.

With these occurrences in mind, viewers were probably anticipating Season 2 to include the following story points: Del putting himself in Billy's shoes, played by Steve Park; Del also learning at the end of Season 2 that Novick's real killer was Billy's friend Isaac English, who killed Novick to protect Billy. Del made the decision to hide Isaac's involvement.

The Poe home, which officially no longer exists, ended on a dramatic note in “American Rust.” Grace set fire to her own home as an excuse to be closer to Del. She was also attempting but failing, to organize the workers at the warehouse where she worked. Finally, Billy was beaten so badly in prison that he went into a coma. Overall, “American Rust” Season 2 might have picked up a lot of other stories.
