Since it arrived on Netflix at the start of September, Devil in Ohio has proved a massive hit with subscribers – nabbing the number one spot on the streamers top 10 in both the UK and the US.

In fact, it's been so popular that many viewers are already asking for a second season, especially given the nature of the massive cliffhanger that ended the first run.

The eight-part thriller was originally billed as a Limited Series and is inspired by a true story, based on the non-fiction novel of the same name by Daria Polatin.

It centres on hospital psychiatrist Dr Suzanne Mathis (Emily Deschanel) – who takes in a young woman who's escaped some sort of satanic cult after she arrives at the hospital with a mysterious wound on her back.

So is a second season on the horizon, or will viewers have to accept they may never get all the answers?

Read on for everything you need to know about the potential for a Devil in Ohio season 2.

We don't have confirmation either way as to whether there will be a season 2 of Devil in Ohio, but unfortunately it doesn't look likely.

The show is being billed by Netflix as a limited series, which would usually mean that it has been planned as a one-and-done season of TV.

However this hasn't always been the case in the past and if Devil in Ohio does particularly well for the streamer, it may come to reconsider the chance of a second season.

There's also the matter of that big cliffhanger at the end of season 1 - should viewers expect that to go unresolved? As of now we unfortunately don't know the answer, but we'll make sure to keep this page updated as soon as we have any more clarity on the matter.

Daria Polatin, who wrote the novel upon which the show is based, and also served as the show runner for the small screen adaptation, recently addressed the question of a second season.

Speaking to TV Insider, she said: "It’s interesting to think where it might go but, for now, it is just an all-in limited [series]."

When could Devil in Ohio season 2 be released on Netflix?

As Devil in Ohio hasn't yet been officially renewed for season 2 it's currently difficult to say when season 2 could appear on Netflix.

We'd imagine the earliest it could be turned around for is summer/autumn 2023, but we'll keep this page updated with any more concrete developments.
