The Righteous Gemstones is a black comedy-drama that serves as sarcasm on religion, where the establishing family of a big church is highlighted. A family which is filled with rapacity and only focuses to gather as much wealth as possible by using the name of Lord Jesus Christ. Through its hilarious tone, the drama succeeds in providing a solid dose of entertainment to the viewers. It has done good work by securing stunning 8/10 stars on the IMDb and 75% of critics score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Developed by Danny McBride, the series first aired on 18th August 2019 on HBO. Since then fans have been waiting to watch the second outing of the series. You might also be wondering why the second iteration hasn’t arrived yet. The Righteous Gemstones season 2 was greenlit back in 2019 but its release date hasn’t finalized yet. If I’m not wrong, several types of questions related to the second season often arise in your mind. But now your wait is over as we have figured out answers to your queries. So take a look at what it is-
When Will We Get To Know The Righteous Gemstones Season 2 Release Date?
We are dejected to notify you that no official announcements have come associated with the premiere date of season 2. Since the first season was concluded in October 2019, it was looking that the second outing would be out by Summer 2020. But nothing like that happened as the COVID-19 pandemic disturbed the schedule of the series. According to Deadline, the name of The Righteous Gemstones season 2 was incorporated in the index of the series including Euphoria Season 2 and HBO Max’s The Flight Attendant Season 2 that suspended filming as a result of a surge in the spread of COVID-19.
Rough House Pictures, McBride’s production unit established with movie creators David Gordon Green and Jody Hill, is located in Charleston, South Carolina, where the filming of this drama usually occurs. During a conversation in June, script maker and actress Edi Patterson divulged that the script was completed and in fact, they also did shooting for two days in South Carolina but thereafter they had to stop due to Coronavirus. In another discussion with Gold Derby, McBridge disclosed that the production would not restart before 2021.
Now, finally, Walton Goggins has cleared that the filming of The Righteous Gemstones Season 2 has begun again. The actor shared a pic through Instagram where he can be seen in the character of a frightening 70-year-old paster, Baby Billy Freeman. In the pic, the actor is showing thumbs up while he is standing ahead of his vanity where the sticker of The Righteous Gemstones is pasted. Since the production is back on the track, season 2 will premiere soon. There are high possibilities that the second season will be released by the last of 2021.
How Will The Righteous Gemstones Season 2 Plot Be?
The drama starts by familiarizing its prime characters via a relishing public baptism that occurs in a wave pool in a Chinese aqua park. Thereafter, the drama proceeds to discover a universe of a religious bluff, filled with deception and fraud. While watching the introductory season, we see that Jesse has been extorted by criminals who warn to uncover him by sharing the clip where he can be seen as crossing limits with several unclothed ladies. In this way a series of disorders, deceives, and lies begin that shortly integrates with the moves of the family.
Then we witness Jesse’s younger sibling and everlasting, opponent Kelvin as well as his deserted sister, Judy. We also see the dishonest uncle, Baby Billy, and firm head, Eli. What the series is trying to convey is the thought process that is running in the brains of these crafty and crooked personalities. For example, when the entire family members decide to go for baptism in Chengdu, China a conflict starts amid Jesse and Kelvin regarding who more finely immerses the heads of devotees under the water.
Now, the event that was planned to calm their minds gets converted to a dramatic issue – demonstrating a big variation amid what Gemstones taught the universe and in what way they are linked with minor matters that take place in the family. The first edition concludes where Eli thinks about his kids’ future in the Gemstone ministry while Jesse faces problems to maintain his married life. Now, The Righteous Gemstones season 2 will show us more about Gemstones and the tactics they use to dupe the people.
