Halston Season 2 Release Date
From the beginning, Netflix claimed Halston a limited series. However, being a limited series doesn’t mean that show could not have another season. The show called Big Little Lies on HBO is the example that returned for the second season to the OTT platform being a limited series. However, Big Little Lies is a fictional show but Netflix’s Halston is based on a biography of the real person.
The problem, here, is the show tells the entire story in a season of 5 episodes, each episode of duration between 45- 59 minutes. It may be expected that the show won’t be returning for the second season although we hope to see the second season streaming on the OTT platform.

The cast of the show includes Ewan McGregor who played the role of the designer Halston. Along with him, the characters are Rebecca Dayan as Elsa Peretti, David Pittu as Joe Eula, Krysta Rodriguez as Liza Minnelli, and Bill Pullman as David J. Mahoney.
There are many supporting cast in the show, without them the show wouldn’t have been possible. Some names include James Riordan, Vera Farmiga, Dilone, Mary Beth Peil, Rory Culkin, and many more.
