‘The Watcher’ season 2 renewal confirmed by Netflix

Netflix’s mystery thriller series ‘The Watcher’ has been renewed for a second season, the streaming network has announced.

Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan co-created the series. Another of their recent releases, ‘Dahmer — Monster’ was renewed for two seasons as well.

Bela Bajaria, the head of global TV at Netflix, said:

“Audiences can’t take their eyes off Monster and The Watcher. The creative team of Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, on Monster, along with Eric Newman, on The Watcher, are masterful storytellers [who’ve] captivated audiences all over the world.

“The back-to-back force of these two series is due to Ryan’s distinct, original voice, which created cultural sensations.”

The official synopsis of ‘The Watcher’ season 1 reads:

“Dean (Bobby Cannavale) and Nora Brannock (Naomi Watts) just purchased their dream home in the idyllic suburb of Westfield, New Jersey, but after putting all of their savings into closing the deal they soon realize the neighborhood is less than welcoming.

“There’s a kooky older woman named Pearl (Mia Farrow) and her brother Jasper (Terry Kinney), who sneaks into the Brannock’s house and hides in their dumbwaiter. There’s Karen (Jennifer Coolidge), the realtor and an old acquaintance of Nora’s, who makes them feel like they don’t really belong, and nosy neighbors Mitch (Richard Kind) and Mo (Margo Martindale), who don’t seem to understand property lines.

“Their icy welcome quickly turns into a full-blown living hell when ominous letters from someone calling themself “The Watcher” start arriving, terrorizing the Brannocks to their breaking point as the neighborhood’s sinister secrets come spilling out.”
