Will There Be A Dark Winds Season 2?

AMC wasted very little time in making a call as “Dark Winds” was officially renewed for a second season on June 21, 2022. This decision came just over a week after the show premiered on AMC and AMC+, meaning that the brass clearly feels confident in what they’ve got. Dan McDermott, president of entertainment and AMC Studios for AMC Networks, had this to say about it:

“This once-in-a-lifetime creative team and cast have delivered something truly special with Dark Winds. We can’t wait to share the rest of this thrill ride of a first season with the fans and follow Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee into a second season on AMC and AMC+ next year. Overwhelming gratitude to our entire production team and a special thanks to executive producers Robert Redford, George R.R. Martin, Chris Eyre and of course Zahn McClarnon, who also leads the cast and brings humanity, authority and the wisdom of richly lived experiences to everything he does.”

Also, for those who may not be familiar just yet, the series takes place in 1971 and is set on a remote outpost of the Navajo Nation near Monument Valley. The show centers on Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn of the Tribal Police who is dealing with a series of seemingly unrelated crimes. But as he digs in further he begins to dig up pains of the past. He is joined by his new deputy, Jim Chee who also has some old scores to settle from his youth on the reservation.
