The Season 1 finale of “The Act,” which is now streaming on Hulu, gave fans a lot of answers, but now a new question has been raised: Will there be a Season 2 of the show?

While the series has yet to be renewed or canceled, all signs are pointing to it returning with new episodes. Not only did Season 1 of the show receive a 91 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but it also set a subscribers-to-series record for Hulu.

“It has driven more new subscribers to series than any other Hulu original in the first month,” Hulu CEO Randy Freer said at Disney Investor Day earlier this month, according to Deadline.

This means more new Hulu subscribers watched “The Act” within the first 24 hours of joining than they did any of its other originals.

On top of all of that, “‘The Act’ is a seasonal anthology series that tells startling, stranger-than-fiction true crime stories,” according to Hulu, which means the point of the show is to tell new true crime stories in each season. The first season’s based on Michelle Dean’s 2016 Buzzfeed article, “Dee Dee Wanted Her Daughter to Be Sick, Gypsy Wanted Her Mom to Be Murdered,” but Season 2, if renewed, would likely focus on a completely different real-life story.

Patricia Arquette (DeeDee Blanchard), Joey King (Gypsy Blanchard), Chloë Sevigny (Mel), AnnaSophia Robb (Lacey) and Calum Worthy (Nick) starred in the eight-episode first season, but it’s unclear if some, all or none of them would return to play new characters in a possible Season 2, as the “American Horror Story” cast does for each of the show’s new seasons.

As Hulu’s upfronts presentation, which offers a look at a company’s new and returning shows, takes place in New York today, fans can likely expect news about a Season 2 of “The Act” shortly.
