What is The Watchful Eye Season 1 about?

We have an extensive review of  The Watchful Eye across the site, including a full-season review. You can find those HERE!

Has The Watchful Eye been renewed for Season 2 

At the time of this writing, Freeform has cancelled The Watchful Eye according to Variety.

What we know about Season 2 so far:

Given the show’s ending, there were definitely plans for a second season, at least from the creators of the show. The cliffhanger finale left us with so many questions, whilst none of the characters’ stories have been finished. We need to know what happens after that ending!

For starters, will Elena help Tory hide the body? What happens to Matthew? Did Roman and Bennet make it to Miami? What did Scott and Elena’s mom talk about? What happens to Mrs Ivey and James? Lastly, when will Otis be taken down?

We’ll be sure to update you if anything changes.

  1. it was the best show av watch in a good while so have a season 2 laeveing the vewiers on a cliffhanger like that come on that’s not fare

  2. You can’t leave us vewiers on a cliffhanger like that if there isn’t another season of the watchfil 👁‍🗨 the producer’s are mad not to make onther season that was so good

  3. If you are planning to stop a very good series, you should film an ending in season 1 and not pretend that there is a season 2! The best series will be canceled and the shitty series will continue to be filmed! So stupid really.

  4. With so much garbage on television these days, it’s really stupid for Freeform to cancel such a great series like “The Watchful Eye”! There has been nothing more interesting since “Lost” and “Desperate Housewives”! Although no one ever likes a series to end, at least these two shows had a chance to end on a great note! “The Watchful Eye” was introduced and was addictive! What’s even dumber is ending it with so many unanswered mysteries. What is wrong with Freeform? I won’t be watching anything on Freeform anymore! Some other platform needs to bring back Season 2 of The Watchful Eye! It is quite simply a unique show! What an AWESOME series that needs closure!

  5. Please bring back the Watchful Eye. I recorded all 10 episodes and am constantly watching them over and over. Need to see what happens…so many cliffhangers. If Freeform won’t bring it back, can another company bring it to us. So many people can’t wait to see what happens in Season 2.

  6. Season 2 is a must!!!!!!!!!!! Loved it!!!!!!!! Definitely an awesome mystery! Will tell everyone only if a season 2 is made, otherwise it would be a waist of time to not have closure!

  7. Please bring on season two and more seasons. I couldn’t stop watching it. I binged it on two days. It’s a great mystery. I’ve been telling everybody about it and I can’t wait to see it and I hope to tell them that there’s gonna be a season two. It is an awesome watch!

  8. Just found season 1 and I really hope there is a season 2!! So many unanswered questions….I need more!

  9. I just finished season 1 in my 2 days off. If there’s no season 2 I will not watch freeform/hulu again. Season 2 is a must in my opinion.

  10. In my opinion, The Watchful Eye has so much potential to carry on for many more seasons. Mostly based within the apartment building there lies the ability to constantly bring in temporary new characters (maybe even well known actors/ actresses) frequently evolving the story lines of each season. Meaning, each temporary character/characters story could be started in episode one finishing with the last episode of that season. Then season 3 would begin and end with a new tenants story and so on, and so on….
    Also, Hulu is a great platform as well as the smaller ones chosen to air this on; but shoot for Netfix too as it is THE MOST WATCHED PLATFORM. By doing that you’re sure to reach the most viewers.
    Please bring back The Watchful Eye.
    Thank you,
