Firstly, the revelation that the Cleons dynasty has been corrupted. And finally, the meeting between Salvor Hardin and her biological mother. While the second season will be certainly based on these two cliff-hangers. It almost certainly introduces the Mule, the ruthless mutant villain.
Considering the paradoxical nature of the Season itself. It can be concluded that on one end the series can be horrifying. On the other end, there’s still hope. The new season will probably take place after 138 years beyond what was established in the previous one.

Apple renewed the season for a renewal that is confirmed. So don’t let your hopes down. As there are more to come!
