Is Panic Getting a Second Season? Here's What We Know So Far

If you’ve already binged season one of Panic, then you’re probably wondering about the possibility of another season. The Amazon Prime Video series revolves around a group of high-school grads as they participate in their dead-end town’s legendary annual games, hoping to score big money despite the games’ big risks. Though the series hasn’t officially been renewed for a second season yet, fans are hopeful, especially since the show’s first season ended on a major cliffhanger. Here’s what we know about the possibility of Panic season two.

Warning: spoilers ahead for season one.

In the final episode of Panic, viewers learn that the town’s sheriff, James Cortez, has been the one pulling the strings all along, seeking revenge after losing his son to the games the year before. After Sheriff Cortez meets his demise at the hands of his wife, it seems for a moment like Heather (who ends up winning the prize money) is finally free of Panic and will get to escape. But as she is driving away from Carp, someone throws a scarecrow of Cortez on Heather’s windshield, implying that Panic isn’t over just yet . . . and someone else is now in control.

Showrunner and author of Panic Lauren Oliver has already said she would love to see the series get a second season. “I am very much hoping to continue it and I was hoping to continue the book,” she told CinemaBlend in June, later adding, “There’s tons of thinking already and tons of material that didn’t make it into the show about the rules of the game and about what might come afterwards, but we’ll see.” And though the original book doesn’t have a sequel (not yet, anyway), there is a Panic spinoff available on Audible titled Panic: Ghosts and Legends, which includes material not yet explored in the series.
