Season details[edit | edit source]
According to series creators Robert and Michelle King, the story picks up immediately after the ending of the previous season, with Leland Townsend seeking an exorcism in the first episode because he says he sold his soul to the devil, which will raise the question of whether he is being genuine or not.
The Kings have also stated that one of their main influences for season two is "the decline in respect for the truth," which will be reflected in the show as an uncertainty between what is true and what is false.

Development[edit | edit source]
Production of the season was initially delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, with some storylines and ideas having to be adapted because of the pandemic's effect on filming, with social-distancing protocols in place. Series creators Robert and Michelle King have stated that they believe these changes will result on a more character-focused season, relying more on intimate shocks than spectacle.
