Mare of Easttown star Kate Winslet has confirmed that there is an "ongoing conversation" about a second season.
The show had huge success during the Primetime Emmy Award nominations early this week, picking up an incredible 16 total nods – including Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series and one for Winslet in the lead acting category.
Deadline has now asked Winslet for an update on where things stand with the future of Mare of Easttown, and she definitely sounds optimistic.
"I would love to play her again, I absolutely believe there's more chapters to her story," she said. "However, just because the story has touched people that doesn't necessarily mean creatively we can do it again.
"But it doesn't mean closing doors; we're opening doors, exploring what's behind the doors."
HBO also definitely seems to have interest in making more of Mare of Easttown as well, as confirmed by channel boss Casey Bloys earlier this summer.
"If Brad [Inglesby, writer] felt like he had a story to tell that felt like it would be at the same level, I think everybody would be open to it," Bloys told Variety.
"Right now, he doesn't have that story. Who knows? We'll have to wait to see if they come up with something they're dying to tell."
He went on: "I don't even have any idea that there's going to be a timeline [for making a season 2 decision]. Usually we take the lead from our creators. There's been no real conversations about what a season 2 would look like."
