Netflix, like everyone else, enjoys an excellent twisting thriller. This time, the streamer has provided us with a new miniseries called Echoes, in which two identical twin sisters who covertly exchange identities are plunged into chaos when one of them goes missing.
As previously stated, the show has been billed as a miniseries, implying that a second season is unlikely. After that unexpected cliffhanger, there's still a lot to draw from and limited series return all the time.
Just ask The Flight Attendant or Big Little Lies! Join us at Digital Spy as we uncover all you need to know about the second season of Echoes on Netflix.
Will There Be a Second Season of Echoes on Netflix?
It's important to note that Netflix has branded Echoes as a “limited series,” which indicates that the show will not run for numerous seasons like most others on the platform.
However, this does not rule out the possibility of a return for Echoes since shows like HBO's Big Little Lies have shown that the limited series classification may be dropped if there is significant viewer demand.
We'll be watching Echoes' performance on Netflix's viewership chart closely in the coming weeks, as this will be the most critical factor in determining whether the show has a future.

What Might Happen if Echoes Returns for a Second Season?
The first season of Echoes ended abruptly, leaving the fate of the McCleary sisters unresolved. Gina fell over the waterfall and is thought dead by Mount Echo inhabitants; however, her body was never located, while Leni fled to Australia despite increased scrutiny from police.
The story then jumps forward to the near future, when Charlie has written a book on his experiences with both ladies and their eventual fate. A woman who resembles one of the McCleary twins emerges at a book reading and inquires about Gina's fate before slipping into the crowd.
Later that night, Charlie is unfazed to discover one of the sisters in his home, having recognized her at the event earlier that day, though he admits he isn't sure which of the twins he is speaking to.
The woman, either Leni or Gina, claims she was not at the book reading earlier, implying that she is lying to confuse or that both sisters are currently in Los Angeles. When Charlie asks why she returned, McCleary says: “Charlie, there are so many scores to settle. I figured I'd start with you.”
The foreboding reaction signals that this isn't going to be a friendly visit; if I were Charlie, I'd be terrified. If Echoes returns for season 2, the mystery surrounding this conclusion will be resolved, and we may see Gina and Leni square off again.
Meanwhile, don't be shocked if Sheriff Floss is still on their trail, as she was left with a hard drive carrying an archive of their embarrassing video diaries, which could provide many clues as to their whereabouts.
Who Could Be in a Potential Echoes Season 2 Cast?
If Echoes returns for a second season, Michelle Monaghan (Messiah) will likely reprise her roles as Leni and Gina McCleary, whose futures were left undetermined by the penultimate episode.
Matt Bomer (Magic Mike) and Daniel Sunjata (Power Book II: Ghost) might return as husbands Jack Beck and Charlie Davenport, respectively. At the same time, as Mount Echo's cheeky Sheriff Louise Floss, Karen Robinson (Schitt's Creek) would be great to see more of.
Ali Stroker (Ozark), Rosanny Zayas (The L Word: Generation Q), and Celia Weston (The Thing About Pam) could also return as Claudia, Paula, and Georgia, who were all left alive – albeit rattled – following the finale's events.
Unfortunately, neither Michael O'Neill's Victor McCleary nor Jonathan Tucker's Dylan James will be seen again, as both were killed off in the first season.
Expected Release Date
If Netflix decides to renew Echoes for a second season, fresh episodes won't be available until late 2023. And that's if a renewal announcement comes soon after the show's original premiere in mid-August 2022.
