The final episode of Hulu’s Pam & Tommy ends on a sad note, leaving viewers wondering if the show will return for a second season.
The film Pam & Tommy, starring Lily James and Sebastian Stan, follows the turbulent marriage of Pamela Anderson (Anderson) and Tommy Lee (Lee), and the subsequent release of an unlawful sex tape recorded by the couple during their honeymoon.
The Hulu series Pam & Tommy has been well-received by critics, with many praising James and Stan for their convincing portrayal of the beloved 90s couple at the show’s centre.
Anderson and Lee struggle to overcome the ramifications of their sex video in their respective careers as the season 1 finale of Pam & Tommy, “Seattle,” comes to a tragic close.
Despite being driven over by Lee, Seth Rogen’s Rand Gaulthier finds redemption, and Lee and Anderson temporarily sue Internet Entertainment Group co-founder Seth Warshavsky (Fred Hechinger). Anderson and Lee’s real-life divorce is reflected in the final scenes of Pam and Tommy, which are understandably heartbreaking.
Due to the show’s massive popularity, there has been an instant surge in demand for a second season of Pam & Tommy. Despite the series finale on Hulu, there are still a number of stories that may be explored in a second season of Pam & Tommy.
A look at the likelihood of a second season of Pam & Tommy and the reasons why it probably shouldn’t be made, given the show’s history.
A second season of Pam & Tommy?
Season 2 of Pam & Tommy is exceedingly doubtful at this time but cannot be fully ruled out. Hulu only gave the original series greenlight to go as far as the marriage and sex tape scandal, thus the show never explored anything beyond that.
Furthermore, given the extensive cosmetic operations Sebastian Stan and Lily James had to undergo to resemble Lee and Anderson, it is uncertain if the core ensemble of Pam & Tommy would even be keen to return for a second season.
Could We Expect Season 2 of Pam & Tommy to Be Successful?
The second season of Lee and Anderson’s semi-biopic Pam & Tommy is not currently in the works at Hulu, but it is possible that the show could return in the future.
Considering how suddenly season 1 ends with the couple’s divorce, season 2 of Pam & Tommy might explore what happens afterwards.
The brief reconciliation between Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson and Anderson’s second sex tape are just two examples of the kinds of real-world occurrences that a second season of the Hulu original may capitalise on.
Is There Really No Good Reason to Make Season 2 of Pam and Tommy?
A second season of Pam & Tommy is unnecessary, despite the fact that there is a history of stories involving similar situations.
As a stand-alone limited series, Pam & Tommy does a great job of depicting the real-life events and repercussions of Lee and Anderson’s sex tape, while also giving viewers a deeper understanding of Anderson’s side of the tale.
Consequently, Hulu’s Pam & Tommy would be better off as an eight-episode limited series, rather than being stretched too thin over the course of a full season.
