The Horror of Dolores Roach, an Aaron Mark-penned horror-comedy series on Amazon Prime, stars Justina Machado as the title character. It is based on the similarly named podcast, which took its cue from Mark’s original stage production of “Empanada Loca.” It centres on Dolores, who is soon caught up in a string of horrifying killings after being freed from prison after serving an unfair 16-year term. If you liked the show’s distinctive blend of horror and humour, you probably want to know if there will be a second season. The information you need concerning the potential outcomes of “The Horror of Dolores Roach” season 2 is provided below.
Will The Horror of Dolores Roach Season 2 Happen?
Season 1 of “The Horror of Dolores Roach” debuted on Amazon Prime Video on July 7, 2023. Eight episodes totaling about thirty minutes each make up the first season. On the same day, the entire first season of the show was released on the streaming platform. The majority of the reviews from critics were favourable, and they praised the writing, topics, and performances. Amazon Prime Video has not yet renewed the show or placed an order for further episodes of the second season. Since it has only recently premiered, it will likely take some time for the streaming service to evaluate the show’s performance before renewing it for a second season.

A second season is heavily suggested by the way season 1 ends. When Dolores shows up to Dominic’s house, the first season concludes on a significant cliffhanger. A potential second season could explore various plot lines that are left unfinished by the conclusion. The series’ inspiration, a podcast, has a second season as well. The first season of the podcast and the first episode of the show both come to an end. Consequently, the second season of the podcast would serve as the perfect guide for the story’s development.
The likelihood that the show will be renewed ultimately depends on how well it is received by viewers. Work on additional episodes won’t likely begin until the WGA strike is over, assuming Amazon Prime Video announces a second installment in the upcoming months. As a result, there could be major delays until the second installment is produced. However, ‘The Horror of Dolores Roach’ season 2 is most likely to arrive at the earliest in Q3 of 2024 assuming filming for it starts in early 2024.
Justina Machado (‘One Day at a Time’) will most likely reprise her role as Dolores Roach for the upcoming second season. However, given the unfortunate outcomes for the most of the main cast members at the end of season one, it is improbable that they will return in a significant capacity. As a result, season 2’s primary cast will probably include new actors portraying new roles.
Dolores reveals how she dodged the consequences of her acts at the first chapter’s conclusion. Dolores shows up at Dominic’s door in the present and appears to murder the first person she encounters. Dolores will probably be fighting for her life once more in the sequel. We’ll probably see what happens once Dolores confronts the enigma and how her faith is affected. In the meantime, Dolores might be persuaded to return to a life of crime, starting yet another string of brutal killings. It will therefore be intriguing to see Dolores’ final destination and what her fate will be.
