Tonight, the final episode of SS-GB will air on the BBC … but should there be an SS-GB season 2?
This is a difficult question to ask for many reasons, with the first one being solely that this was meant to be devised from the jump as a five-part miniseries. It’s an alternate-history show about what happened had Germany won the Battle of Britain and occupied the United Kingdom; basically, it feels considerably like a different version of The Man in the High Castle on Amazon.
If you look around the internet right now, there isn’t a considerable amount of conversation as to whether or not there could be more, but we don’t rule anything out provided that the parties involved conjure up a great story that they deem could be worthy of bringing to the air for more episodes. The biggest challenge that they are going to potentially run into is the mere fact that the ratings have suffered a decline over the past several weeks. The show itself’s been the subject of some mixed reviews, with many viewers in particular claiming that the sound mix is somewhat incomprehensible and it’s therefore challenging to know precisely what people are saying more often than not.
One other part of this equation that is rather interesting to point out here, just in the context of how far removed this show is from filming, is that season 1 finished up production more than a year ago. This entire series wrapped a good year before James Cosmo, one of the actors in the show, ever even entered the Celebrity Big Brother house in the first place. We do feel as though there’d be more conversation at this point in the event that there was going to be something more done with the show, but who knows? We’ve been surprised before.
What we want to know from you is quite simple: Regardless of how SS-GB season 1 ends, do you want to see a season 2? Vote now in the poll below! There’s no merit to the poll beyond the fact that it is curiosity-based, but we are still interested in seeing what the appetite is for more.
