Monsieur Spade Season 1 Episode 2 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch

Monsieur Spade Season 1 Episode 1

The brilliant Scott Frank returns to the realm of television four years hence after his smashing success with Netflix’s The Queen Gambit. Frank and co-creator Tom Fontana are the showrunners for Season 1 of Monsieur Spade, AMC’s new noir offering. Frank has taken the mantle of directing as well as co-writing all the episodes in the limited series. Clive Owen headlines AMC’s ambitious project, which will evolve around the character of Detective Sam Spade from Dashiell Hammett‘s novel The Maltese Falcon.

AMC has partnered up with the French Groupe Canal+ to co-produce the series. 

We are excited to bring you coverage of all the episodes in Season 1 with episodic recaps and preview articles for each new episode, assisting you to keep up with the unfolding drama. 

Here is everything you need to know about Monsieur Spade Season 1 Episode 2, including its release date, time, and where you can watch this.

Where Can I Watch Monsieur Spade?

Monsieur Spade will be available to watch on the AMC channel for our cable network viewers in the US and Canada. The episodes will also be available to stream simultaneously on its streaming platform, AMC+. In addition to the host network, Acorn TV will also host the new episodes in these geographies. Presently, we are not aware of any more streaming options other than those mentioned above. 

Unfortunately, for our readers in the UK, Australia, and the Indian sub-continent, Monsieur Spade Season 1 will not be available to stream at the same release time as in the US. However, we expect that to change in the coming weeks after the show makes its domestic debut. 

Monsieur Spade Season 1 Episode 2 Release Date

Monsieur Spade Season 1 Episode 2 will be released on Sunday 21st January at 9 pm (ET)/(PT). Expect the runtime to be roughly 47 minutes or thereabouts, which is consistent with the time frame for shows of similar stature on the network. Additionally, viewers who miss the premiere can also catch a rerun of the first episode on 25th January (Thursday) at 2 pm on AMC.  

The show will stick to a weekly release schedule after the first episode has aired, tugging the Sunday airings at the same time.

The new episode of Monsieur Spade does not have a specific title. The episode will be available to stream with subtitles. Its plot summary reads: “Detective Sam Spade is pulled out of retirement to investigate a series of brutal murders.” The terrifying death of the nuns in the cathedral will no doubt be the starting point for Episode 2. 

How Many Episodes Will Monsieur Spade Have?

Season 1 of Monsieur Spade will have a total of six episodes. After the second episode has aired, there will be four more episodes left in the series. AMC is not expected to make any scheduling changes. But in case that happens, we will update our readers through these weekly preview articles. 

What happened in Episode 1?

In 1955, Sam Spade arrives in Bozouls, France. The famous detective from San Fransisco was tasked by his client, Brigid O’Shaughnessy, to drop off her young daughter, Teresa, at her father Philippe’s house. However, Spade does not find him home, instead running into his acerbic mother, Audrey. The next morning, Spade has a chance meeting with Gabrielle, a local vineyard owner and the two hit it off.

We have a time jump of eight years. It is revealed that Gabrielle passed away in 1961. Since then, Spade has been living alone in her house. Teresa has been shipped off to the local convent and has grown detached from Spade. Everything turns upside down when Philippe finally returns to Bozouls unexpectedly. Along with him, Jean Pierre, an old friend of Spade’s, also comes back from the Algerian war.

Both create troubles for Spade, who is alerted to a dangerous situation unfolding at the convent by Teresa late at night. Earlier, Spade heard a gun being fired over the phone with Philippe. This new development happens in continuation of that, which forces Spade to leave Teresa with Helena, the caretaker of the house. He heads for the convent and what he finds there sets the tone for the rest of the investigation, which will pick up in the coming episodes.
