An Irish dark comedy as morbid as it can be uplifting, Sharon Horgan’s Apple TV series Bad Sisters has captivated many viewers with the mystery of how John Paul Williams dies. If you’ve been rooting for the Garvey sisters up until now, you may be wondering if this series has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:
Bad Sisters begins with the funeral of a man everyone seems to hate: John Paul Williams. His sisters-in-law (Eva, Bibi, Ursula, and Becka) especially despise him–so much so that an investigation reveals their possible involvement in his death.
A dual timeline shows us both the past (just what kind of person John Paul was) and the present (the investigation that incriminates the Garvey sisters).
We have extensive coverage on Bad Sisters across the site, including a season 1 review and ongoing recaps.
At the time of writing, AppleTV+ has not renewed Bad Sisters for season 2. While Apple has been good about renewing many of its shows, Bad Sisters is a special case, as it plays out like a limited series.
Critic and audience reviews have trended mostly positive for the show, so that’s promising. However, while we won’t give away any spoilers, the ending does wrap things up pretty neatly. Given that fact, we’re going to guess that Bad Sisters will remain a limited series and that Apple will not renew it for season 2.
Not much is known about season 2 at the time of writing, given Apple has not greenlit a sequel, and we’re predicting that they won’t.
That doesn’t necessarily mean Bad Sisters is over, however. There’s potential for a follow-up that addresses more of the aftermath of John Paul’s death, or perhaps another scandal.
We’ll be sure to update this section with more information as it becomes available.
