Renewed Or Cancelled?
The Lake is the latest comedic drama on Amazon Prime. With 8 episodes and a super simple premise, this one is very easy to watch.
If you’ve finished watching this, you may be wondering if this one’s been renewed or cancelled. Well, read ahead and we’ll let you know what we know so far about a renewal!
What is The Lake Season 1 about?
The story here is pretty straightforward and revolves around two central characters and their estranged relationship – Justin and Billie. Although one could argue it’s as much about Justin and his step-sister Maisy-May.
Anyway, Justin takes the summer to connect with his teenage daughter Billie whom he initially gave up for adoption. This trip to the lake is just what the doctor ordered for them to reconnect.
At the lake, Billie meets the gorgeous Killian, who happens to be the son to Victor and Maisy-May. Maisy-May is actually Justin’s step-sister and their sibling rivalry immediately ignites from the middle of the first episode until the final chapter. The prize here stems from their father’s cottage.

Has The Lake been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, Amazon have renewed The Lake for season 2. Given the open ending, that was perhaps unsurprising. Amazon have a pretty good track record with renewals, although this series has released right alongside The Boys and The Summer I Turned Pretty, which are attracting a lot of attention.
Not only has The Lake been officially renewed, but filming has also finished on season 2 as well!
Comedies tend to do quite well with renewals at Amazon, with Upload and Fairfax the two notable series that have been renewed in the past. And with that in mind, I guess we can add The Lake to that list now too!
We’ll be sure to update this section with more details as they become available.
What we know about season 2 so far:
Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, although as mentioned above, filming has now finished on the follow-up. It wouldn’t be outside the realm of possibility to think this will be released in 2023. Specifically, released around April-June on the calendar seems the most likely.
