The FX on Hulu series Under the Banner of Heaven has set the heather alight with its controversial plot, excellent storytelling and great cast. That’s why fans are already wondering whether or not Under the Banner of Heaven Season 2 will happen. Here’s everything we know about the future of the beloved true crime drama series.
Based on the novel of the same name by Jon Krakauer, Under the Banner of Heaven follows a true crime committed by fundamentalist Mormons in the name of God. A police detective’s faith is shaken as he investigates the murder of a Mormon mother and her young daughter, which appears to involve the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Inspired by real events, the series sheds light on the realities of radical religious communities. Without further ado, let’s get straight to our main topic: will there be a 2nd season of the FX on Hulu series Under the Banner of Heaven?

Under the Banner of Heaven premiered on FX on Hulu on April 28, 2022 and consists of 7 episodes in total.

The remaining 6 episodes, titled “When God Was Love,” “Rightful Place,” “Surrender,” “Church and State,” “One Mighty and Strong,” and “Revelation,” are already available on Hulu.
