Apple TV+ has given the green light to Bad Sisters Season 2, which will continue the darkly comedic murder mystery series from Emmy Award nominee and BAFTA Award-winning executive producer and star Sharon Horgan.
The series is executive produced and written by Horgan with Brett Baer and Dave Finkel, who adapted it from the Belgian version of the series Clan, which was created by Malin-Sarah Gozin.
“If you’d have told me three years ago that I’d be making a series about five murderous sisters chasing a man around Ireland trying to kill him I’d have said, ‘Yeah, that sounds about right,'” said star and executive producer Sharon Horgan about the Bad Sisters Season 2 renewal.
“The response to our show has been beyond what we could have hoped for. It gave us the opportunity to shine a light on stories that don’t always get such a global platform. I look forward to getting chilly in the Irish Sea one more time.”
Since its global premiere, Bad Sisters has been hailed as “one of the year’s best shows,” “a wickedly funny, genuinely poignant” dramedy and “this year’s most vicious comic treat.”
As each new episode of Bad Sisters debuted week-to-week on Apple TV+, the series received continuous praise from critics and fans around the world, and currently holds a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
The recently aired season one finale episode was dubbed “the most satisfying TV finale of the year.”
The Critics Choice Association Women’s Committee also recently granted Bad Sisters with the newly launched Seal of Female Empowerment in Entertainment (SOFEE).
In Bad Sisters, the tight-knit Garvey sisters have always looked out for each other. When their brother-in-law winds up dead, his life insurers launch an investigation to prove malicious intent — and set their sights on the sisters, all of whom had ample reason to kill him.
Horgan, Faye Dorn and Clelia Mountford executive produce for Merman; and Gozin, Bert Hamelinck and Michael Sagol executive produce for Caviar.
In addition to Horgan, Baer and Finkel, the series is written by Karen Cogan, Ailbhe Keogan, Daniel Cullen, Perrie Balthazar and Paul Howard. Dearbhla Walsh, Josephine Bornebusch and Rebecca Gatward serve as directors. Walsh also serves as executive producer.
Bad Sisters Season 2 is produced by Merman Television and ABC Signature, a part of Disney Television Studios.
