Renewed Or Cancelled?

Park biopic and part thriller, Five Days At Memorial is Apple’s latest series, diving into the horrors of Hurricane Katrina and the woes befallen those at Memorial Hospital.

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


What is Five Days At Memorial Season 1 about?

Five Days At Memorial is a nail-biting thriller that centers on doctors and nurses at the intensive care unit of a New Orleans hospital. As Hurricane Katrina slams through the city, those at LifeCare and Memorial struggle to cope with the pressure.

Flood water rises, food and water is running out and rescue is hard to come by. Oh, and power in the facility goes out for 5 days.

In the aftermath, those inside Memorial come under questioning for their role to play in what happened to 45 patients who lost their lives. Is there foul play involved? Or is this just another tragedy the government could have done more to prevent?

We have extensive coverage on Five Days At Memorial across the site, including ongoing recaps, which you can find HERE.


Has Five Days At Memorial been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, AppleTV+ has not renewed Five Days At Memorial for season 2. Given Apple’s track record for renewing a lot of its shows, it’ll be interesting to see if they do renew this one.

Both critic and audience reviews have been pretty good for this and for those who have seen the ending, everything is actually wrapped up really well, reinforcing that this is more of a miniseries than an ongoing Original with potential for sequels.

Given the way the final episode pans out (no spoilers here don’t worry!), we predict that Five Days At Memorial will not be renewed for season 2.


What we know about season 2 so far:

Not much is known about season 2 at the time of writing, given this one has not been renewed. Despite Apple’s great track record with renewals, we’re predicting that this isn’t going to get the greenlight for a follow-up.

It’s likely that Apple may an official announcement several months from now, especially as Apple weigh up whether it’s worth renewing this – or if there’s even a story left to tell.

We’ll be sure to update this section with more information as it becomes available.

  1. This was a very good show and I hope that they do have a season 2. It would be interesting to see more about the ethical dilemma faced by all the people inside the hospital from each perspective. It also would be interesting to see if they actually follow the storyline pursued a court case even though there was no grand jury indictment.

  2. As a person who rode out Katrina, lost home, and lived the aftermath on the east side of the storm in Pass Christian, Mississippi (the town that was wiped off the map), we had no cell phone (only text messaging worked if you had it), no power, food or water until the national guard came in two weeks later. It was truly marshal law but luckily I was not in the city, just 60 miles to the west of us. I was shocked about this story. Didn’t know anything about it, we were too busy rebuilding here. It was amazing how it was all recreated. While we were watching it, we kept saying, as tragic as this story was, it’d be interesting to see something like this production be made about the happenings in the superdome during Katrina! Not to diminish this incredible production, but that would be another big story instead of stretching out the hospital tragedy for another season. I believe it wrapped up well.

  3. I, for one, would like to hear the ethical arguments and see how the trial resolves. Let’s have one more season.

  4. Apple said in the beginning that this was a limited series. There should be no season two.
