The following story contains spoilers for Daisy Jones & The Six on Prime Video.
Many have tried, but there aren't a ton of Rock 'n' Roll movies and television shows that really hit. We've got Almost Famous, we've got Spinal Tap (and A Mighty Wind within the Christopher Guest pantheon as well if we're giving credit where credit is due), we've got whatever version of A Star Is Born of your choice, and maybe a few others. But now, in 2023, we got Daisy Jones & The Six, based on Taylor Jenkins Reid's novel of the same name, which has been a hit with fans and a success in its book-to-TV adaptation.
The series, which just wrapped its 10-episode run up last week on Prime Video, covers the rise and fall of the fictional band Daisy Jones and The Six; they're "fictional," but Reid has been open about how the band is almost directly based on memories from her youth of Fleetwood Mac. Lead characters Daisy Jones (Riley Keough) and Billy Dunne (Sam Claflin) are very close to Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham.
And while the end of Prime Video's Daisy Jones and The Six takes us right to the end of the book, there's always the possibility that the show could continue beyond that story; The Leftovers and Big Little Lies both continued their stories on HBO beyond the source material to great success.
Here's what we know about a potential Season 2 of Daisy Jones & The Six.
Will there be a Season 2 of Daisy Jones & The Six?
No word for sure just yet. Daisy Jones & The Six covered the entirety of Taylor Jenkins Reid's novel, but she mentioned in an interview with Variety that continuing the story has been firmly on her mind.
“I think we’re in a really fortunate position where we have a story that is final, and has an ending that feels really good,” Reid said in the interview. “I would only open that back up if it felt like there was a story here that we have to tell. Have I been thinking about what that is? I certainly have.”
When would Daisy Jones & The Six Season 2 come out?
Considering Season 2 hasn't even been ordered, and production on Season 1 was completely disrupted by Covid in multiple ways, it's hard to project this at all. But if it did get a Season 2 ordered, we could tentatively guess that it would return somewhere within a year or two years from the time when that order is made.
What would Season 2 of Daisy Jones & The Six be about?
Given that the initial Daisy Jones & The Six series covers the entirety of the book, what Season 2 would be about is anyone's guess.
However, Season 2 would likely pick up in the '90s, where the documentary portion of Daisy Jones & The Six leaves off, with Daisy and Billy reuniting. Maybe Season 2 would be about the band making a reunion album and subsequent tour, hopefully this time without all the substance abuse and drama? A show's got to find its conflict somewhere, though.
There would also of course be an aspect of grief and loss, as Camila (Camilla Morrone) has recently died and she was important to our main characters.
One thing we know for sure Season 2 would have? A ton more great music.
Who would be in the Season 2 Daisy Jones & The Six cast?
Reid essentially implied in the interview with Variety that one of the biggest reasons she's thinking about essential ways to continue Daisy and Billy's story is because of just how strong Riley Keough and Sam Claflin were as those characters. “To see the performances that you have from this cast, and specifically Riley and Sam, and be willing to walk away from that without asking yourself whether you could give them another opportunity to dig into these characters would be very silly,” she said. “I’m not so stupid as to not recognize what we have in the two of them. So it’s definitely on my mind.”
And so there you have it. If there's a Season 2 of Daisy Jones & The Six, it sounds like it would likely be built around a returning Riley Keough (as Daisy Jones) and Sam Claflin (as Billy Dunne), and likely with other cast members (like Suki Waterhouse as Karen, Will Harrison as Graham, Josh Roundtree as Eddie, and Timothy Olyphant as Rod) returning as well.
