The late 1970s are perfectly represented in Daisy Jones & The Six, a documentary about a made-up rock band. The music drama was developed by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber and centers on the careers of Daisy Jones (Riley Keough) and Billy Dunne (Danny McBride) (Sam Claflin).
The series is adapted from Taylor Jenkins Reid’s 2019 novel, which was in turn inspired by the chemistry between Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac.
Is A 2 season Of Daisy Jones & The Six In The Works?
A renewal for Season 2 has not been confirmed by Amazon Prime Video. Although the series was announced as a limited run, more episodes may be produced if the producers’ comments are any indication.
What Have The Creators Said About A Possible Second Season?
Reid, the show’s creator, told Variety that she has “been thinking about” developing a new season.
We’re in the fortunate position of having a complete story with a satisfying conclusion, as Reid put it. Only if there’s a compelling story to be told would I consider cracking that open again. Have I been pondering what that could be? I know I have.
“It would be very foolish to watch the performances that you have from this cast, and especially Riley and Sam, and not wonder if you could give them another chance to delve into these characters. I’m not so dense that I can’t see how lucky we are to have the two of them. As a result, I can’t get it out of my head.
Both showrunners, Neustadter and Will Graham, are interested in coming back if there is enough of an audience for them to do so. Neustadter said to Variety, “I think that would be amazing” when asked about the possibility of a second season.
Maybe we’ll get a shot at it if there’s enough of an audience for this story and these characters. Simply keep the door ajar. That makes no sense. It’s not a terrible dilemma to have satisfied fans clamoring for more of your work.
Are New Episodes Of Daisy Jones And The Six On The Way?
There are a number of books being adapted into TV shows at the moment, but many readers have been waiting for one in particular. After the success of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, author Taylor Jenkins Reid shelved her ambitious 2019 project, Daisy Jones & The Six.
The anticipation was well-founded, as Reid delivered a mockumentary in his inimitable style about a made-up rock band that we all secretly wished was real. Well, that hope was partially fulfilled when Amazon Studios released a collection of the band’s songs, which became an instant hit just like the show.
Oh My Gosh, There Are Only Five of Us?
Even though the book calls them “the Six,” viewers quickly learn that there are actually only five members of the band. Lead singer Billy Dunne (Sam Claflin) is joined by his brother Graham (Will Harrison) on guitar, Eddie (Josh Whitehouse) on bass, and Warren (Benjamin Walker) on drums (Sebastian Chacon).
When the original keyboardist for Suki Waterhouse, named the Dunne Brothers, decides to pursue a career in medicine instead, they decide to bring on Karen. Pete, the novel’s bassist, is not featured in the TV show (as well as a previous guitarist Chuck, who dies in the Vietnam War).
Scott Neustadter, the show’s executive producer, explained to Time magazine that ditching Pete was a logical choice. Pete is a necessary character in the story, but he isn’t the most interesting or outspoken person there.
He went on to explain that they had anticipated Pete’s actor wanting more work if he was cast. “It seemed like getting rid of Pete gave us more freedom to work with the characters we already had in the ensemble, which was already quite large.
I really hope the show will make everyone, especially the Pete fans, forgive us. Instead, Camila (Camila Morrone), Billy’s wife, is implied to be the unofficial sixth member when Karen suggests they be called the Six early in the season. Camila is the band’s photographer and the inspiration behind several pivotal songs.
Daisy tells Rod she’s leaving immediately following the performance. Daisy doesn’t ostensibly leave the band because of Billy. Having made the decision to get sober, she leaves her job. However, the fact that she had seen Billy’s relapse that day, both onstage and backstage, did influence her choice.
