The Last Thing He Told Me, the thriller series starring Jennifer Garner, has received a surprise renewal for a second season.

The Apple TV+ series, which is based on Laura Dave’s 2021 novel, follows Hannah Hall (Garner) as she bonds with her stepdaughter, Bailey (Angourie Rice), following the disappearance of her husband, Owen (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau).

Despite receiving mixed reviews and being billed as a limited series, Variety has reported that the show has been renewed for a second season, with the plot being based on the upcoming sequel novel from Dave, which is due to be published in 2025.

Garner, Rice, Coster-Waldau and David Morse, who plays Owen’s father-in-law, will all reprise their roles for the second season, whilst Aaron Zelman will join Dave and Josh Singer as co-showrunner and executive producer.

“Like so many people, I fell for Hannah on page one of Laura’s gripping novel,” said Garner in a statement following the announcement. “The move to actor and producer from reader and super fan was delicious.

“[It was] made even sweeter by collaborating with Laura, Josh, Reese [Witherspoon] and everyone at Hello Sunshine, as well as the amazing teams at Apple and 20th. Being part of this group, not to mention part of such a stellar cast, was a career highlight for me.

“I’m over the moon to continue telling the story of Hannah and Bailey,” added Dave. “The response to The Last Thing He Told Me has been truly extraordinary, and I’m grateful to everyone who read and shared the book and made this possible.”
