If you found the new drama series Our Boys on HBO exciting, you're no doubt concerned about the possibility of a Season 2. The drama series is co-produced by an American-Israel team. Our Boys premiered on August 12, 2019, and has received mainly positive reviews from critics and viewers.
A sad fact, but initially Our Boys was conceived as a miniseries, and thereby can't have a Season 2, traditionally. So the short answer on the question is no, there won't be Our Boys Season 2. But still, we don't rule out the possibility of renewal.
As a rule, if a limited series gains success, the network, which is responsible for broadcasting could change their mind and pick up the show for another round even despite that it was planned as a miniseries. Talking about a reception of Our Boys, it was more than favorable, given the statistics provided by various media aggregators.
Thus, on Rotten Tomatoes, Our Boys Season 1 holds a score of 7/10 and a 92% approval rating from critics, while viewers have rated the drama series at 3.3/5 and have given a 63% rating. At the same time, on Metacritic, Our Boys hold a score of 83/100 and 7.1/10, among critics/viewers, respectively. On IMDb, Our Boys keep an average score of 6.3/10 based on over 2,000 votes. So, in general, viewers were satisfied with the drama series.
However, if we take a look at the television ratings, the picture doesn't look so favorable. Our Boys Season 1 premiere has garnered only 0.124 million viewers with a 0.03 key demo among adults (P18-49). The series, thereby hasn't even been included in the rating charts of that day. But still, the viewing audience is not what HBO used to value above all. The network has too many shows with high ratings so it tries to mix their video content with various extraordinary series.
Summing up, even despite that all indications are that Our Boys Season 2 won't happen, we don't rule out the possibility of renewal completely. As a result, we are looking forward to any news from HBO on the subject to provide you reliable data. Once the network announces the renewal or cancelation of the drama series, we will update this page.
Our Boys Season 2 Release Date
As mentioned above, even despite the odds are low, we don't rule out the positive decision entirely. But when Our Boys Season 2 might premiere in case of renewal? Since Our Boys Season 1 consist of only ten episodes, we don't think that the production on Season 2 could take more than a year. As a result, we tend to believe that Our Boys might return for a Season 2 already next summer, in August 2020, given the current schedule of the drama series.
But still, we want you to take into account that all the data about the renewal and the release date of the drama series is nothing but our forecast. Our Boys Season 2 is yet to be announced by HBO. As soon as the network provides us more reliable data on the subject of Our Boys Season 2 as well as a specific release date, we will update this page. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
