Has The Crowded Room been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Renewed or Cancelled?

The Crowded Room tells the real story of Billy Milligan, a New York resident dealing with mental health issues, who is charged with a slew of murders. The Apple TV+ show stars Tom Holland as the central character, whose name has been changed to Danny Sullivan. Amanda Seyfried, Emmy Rossum, and Will Chase star in supporting roles.

If you’ve finished watching this one, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know so far:


What is The Crowded Room Season 1 about?

The Crowded Room is the story of Danny Sullivan, a young man who is arrested in connection with a shooting at the Rockefeller Centre. Danny’s arrest is for the attempt to murder his own stepfather, Marlin.

Dr Rya Goodwin, a psychology professor at the university, is called in by her ex-boyfriend Detective Matt Doyle to the station. He beseeches her to examine Danny as he believes that he might be a serial killer.

But as Rya meets Danny over the course of the next few weeks, she discovers that he suffers from multiple personality disorder. He has completely disassociated from reality and his “crowded room” controls him in different forms. Rya is determined to get Danny the treatment and care he needs. She pairs up with his appointed pleader, Stan Camisa, to make a compelling case for Danny and officially make him one of the first accused in the US justice system to be acquitted of MPD. 


Has The Crowded Room been renewed for Season 2?

At the time of writing, Apple TV+ has not renewed The Crowded Room for a second season. Given the nature of this series, that could change if there is some positivity from the side of the creators and its frontline A-list stars.

Generally, Apple TV Plus, like other cable networks and streamers, gauges numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton etc.) Other times, it can take months before streamers like Apple TV Plus make a decision over a show’s future.

Season 1 of The Crowded Room has received acclaim from both the audience and the critics. Tom Holland’s magnetic central performance has surprised everyone. He holds the narrative like glue and takes us through Danny’s tumultuous journey. 

However, at this stage, it is unlikely the show will get renewed. The main cause of concern flows from the dependence of the project on Tom Holland. Moreover, Apple TV commissioned the show as a “limited series,” meaning that they ordered a single season only. The story is also pretty complete leaving little room to carve out more episodes.

We predict that The Crowded Room will not be renewed for a second season. Even though we give it a thumbs up and would like to see more of Danny’s story, its future is uncertain. As Apple TV Plus has been notoriously ungenerous with its renewals, this also brings doubt about a renewal.

We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!


What do we know about Season 2 so far: 

Not much is known about season 2 at the time of writing, given Apple TV Plus has not officially renewed this one yet. Should the streamers decide to greenlight a second season, it’s fair to assume that we will pick up in the aftermath of what happened at the end of the series.

With regards to Season 2, it’s likely that Apple TV Plus will make an official announcement several months from now, once the final viewing figures are in. Do not wait for the show’s renewal though as we think it is unlikely Apple TV will renew The Crowded Room. We’ll be sure to update this section when an official announcement is made by Apple TV.

  1. Loved the show. Tom Holland was breathtaking in his performance. Bring on Season 2.

  2. They completely ruined a perfectly good 4 season show with the way they went about it, it’s built for 1 season but the story is so much more with the actual Billy Milligan story. If they had someone that could grow into the character that Billy becomes, could have been amazing. Such a missed opportunity. Also hollywooding mental Illness, Well done lol

  3. This series was amazing. We need to focus of mental health and the victims of child molestation. Being a victim myself, I found the movie very moving and pretty on point with the severity of the toll it takes on a child. It is amazing what one’s mind can do to cope with such traumatic events. Doing a season 2 would be fantastic to bring awareness that one can heal, the events will never be forgotten however one can learn the tools to exist again. To be able to have a second season to see where Danny goes now and how he reacts in everyday life with his alters at bay for the time being. The store was beautifully written. Tom and Amanda are incredible and should be so proud of the authenticity of their portrayal of the storyline. Big big fan and touched my heart!! Thank you to everyone involved in this series!!!

  4. I have watched the many faces of Billy Milligan on Netflix-it was excellent- but this drama is too! All the cast are terrific,it has had me gripped! Maybe Tom wouldn’t want to do another season- he found it rough- but I would hope he’d do it after a good rest… it’s gripping. Come on,Apple TV!

  5. This was a gripping story and I cried at the end of episode 10. I would like to see a continuance of the story. Tom Holland was absolutely amazing!

  6. We love The Crowded Room. But, I can see only 1 season. Tom Holland has done amazing job. He makes the show.
