All of them want to know if the show will return with Under The Banner Of Heaven Season 2. Here’s what we know so far.

Is there a Season 2 of Under the Banner Of Heaven?
Hulu launched the first season of this crime drama on April 28, 2022. The season ended on June 2, 2022. The prospects for the second season of the show’s existence are not looking bright. Hulu had the show advertised as a miniseries. The first season already featured the true crime book of Jon Krakauer, which is the basis for the show. It seems unlikely that Under the Banner of Heaven Season 2 will ever see the light of day, given all of this.
