Know the Release Date!
Dopesick Season 2 has not yet been formally renewed, sources say. Dopesick Season 2 has been met with universal acclaim, so fans can be assured that the show will be back for at least another season. The premiere date for Season 2 has not yet been determined.
Furthermore, Hulu has not yet confirmed that a second season will be produced. If it is determined that the season will continue, only then, a premiere date will be given. The way season 1 concluded, though, provided plenty of possibility for future seasons. A second season is quite likely.
