Each episode is between 57 and 65 minutes long. There are eight episodes in the first season. The first episode of the show came out on Hulu on October 13, 2021, and you can still watch it. The story of the show is unique and full of passion and emotion. The acting and delivery of dialogue in the series are top-notch. Today, we’re going to tell you the most recent news about Dopesick Season 2.
Dopesick Season 2 Release Date
Hulu hasn’t said yet if there will be a second season of the show. Also, when talking to a fan in November 2021, the show’s creator Danny Strong wouldn’t say for sure that the show wouldn’t go on in any way. Strong was optimistic about the possibility of a second season, but he warned that there had been no official talks about a second season yet.
So, whether or not there will be a second season depends on how well the first season does. If the show is more popular than the streamer thought it would be, the company may buy a second season. Fans shouldn’t have too high of hopes for the drama series, since it’s based on a non-fiction book with a tightly wrapped story. In fact, it is being sold as a miniseries right now.
If, on the other hand, a second season is really approved in the next few months, Strong’s team will need time to do more research and come up with another interesting plot for the show. So, the second season of “Dopesick” could come out in late 2023.

What Will Happen in Dopesick Season 2?
The first season of “Dopesick” starts with Richard Sackler coming up with OxyContin, a painkiller made from opioids. It starts with when the drug first came out on the market and ends with the case against Purdue Pharma.
Mountcastle and Ramseyer are able to show that OxyContin was mislabeled and that Purdue Pharma did wrong in the end. This gets Purdue a lot of bad press and big fines from the government.
If there is a second season, it is possible that it will focus on other drug companies that contributed to the opioid crisis. In the season 1 finale, Mountcastle and Ramseyer are getting ready to take on a case involving another pharmaceutical business.
