Conceived by Tom McCarthy “Alaska Daily” is an American TV drama series for ABC, starring Hilary Swank who also serves as a producer portraying a journalist who relocates to Alaska looking for a new beginning.
Speaking to Collider, the actress talked about her character as a journalist in the newly launched series “Alaska Daily.”
“This one, for me, was first and foremost about the fact that the story dealt with these missing and murdered Indigenous women. It is of the utmost importance and it’s a story that matters. I’d like to see it get out there and get more eyes on it and get people talking about it. And then, this woman is a truth seeker. She’s an advocate. She wants to see that justice prevails. All of those things are very beautiful to me. I like that she doesn’t suffer fools. We usually see men in these roles, so it’s really nice to have something that I can step into that’s just brave.”
“Alaska Daily” was launched on ABC on October 6, 2022. Alongside Swank, the series also stars Jeff Perry, Grace Dove, Meredith Holzman, Matt Malloy, Pablo Castelblanco, Ami Park, and Craig Frank.
Currently, there’s no concrete information on whether the series plans to continue the story with more seasons in the future because the debut season is still ongoing and has so far launched just two seasons and a couple more to go. Nonetheless, let’s find out below the chances of “Alaska Daily” returning with the second season.
Alaska Daily Season 2: Is it Renewed?
Unfortunately, Alaska Daily season two has yet to be renewed. Since the series debuted just a week ago it only has two episodes so far. Also, ABC will determine whether or not the series is worthy of having a second season taking into account the ratings and viewerships of the first season. So we might have to wait for a while as it will take time for the network to make a decision. In the meantime, you can stream the first season on ABC.
Alaska Daily Season 2 Release Date
As previously mentioned, ABC has yet to renew the series for a second run. Hence, the release date has not been scheduled. On the off chance, season 2 of Alaska happens, fans can expect to see the new episodes sometime in 2023. Until then, wait for more official announcements.
