The Fear Index Season 2 Release Date
The Fear Index was made as a 4-part miniseries, which covers the storyline of the whole book. Sky Studios did have much planned for season 2. So, no, they are not going to make 2nd season of the show as the story got completed, hence the show is canceled. There is only one way, that season 2 might be possible, only if the writer Robert Harris writes another book or a screenplay by which they can make another season.
So, if they decide to make another season, it might get a release around mid-2024. That’s the nearest they can go. That’s all the news we have got for now, if we get any further updates related to the show’s second season or official cancellation, even if we get any information related to the new book which could lead to the second season of the show, we will make sure to update the page with the latest information.

The Fear Index Season 2 Story
Dr. Alexander Hoffmann, an American expatriate in Switzerland and the founder of his hedge fund, acquires a first-grade class of The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals. Hoffmann is perplexed by the fact that the book’s subject pertains to his fear theory, and even more so by the fact that there is no clue of who sent it. Hoffmann is attacked in his home that night by an unknown assailant. Inspector Leclerc, a police officer, is skeptical of Hoffmann’s story.
He goes to his company the next morning, where his flamboyant English CEO, Hugo Quarry, is pitching for a fresh round of funding from the firm’s new and existing customers. Despite objections from the industry’s Chief Risk Officer Ganapathi Rajamani, they hope to incorporate Hoffmann’s algorithmic expertise into a system called VIXAL-4 that can give enough market data to build profitable hedges.
Leclerc approaches Hoffmann’s English wife Gabrielle at her art gallery. Hoffmann had a nervous breakdown while working at CERN, according to Leclerc. Gabrielle confronts Hoffmann later, but he dismisses it as unimportant. Suddenly, Gabrielle’s entire collection of artwork is sold to an unknown collector.
Hoffmann and Quarry are successful in attracting large sums of money. Hoffmann bolts from the restaurant when he is asked to give a speech. Hoffmann eventually tracks the assailant down to a motel room, where he is attacked by Karp the assailant. Karp’s neck is broken during the fight. Hoffmann alters the crime scene to make it appear as if it were a suicide. Leclerc is informed by forensics, and he deduces that Hoffmann murdered him. The scenario becomes unstable throughout the business day, with VIXAL taking on a level of risk that the human workforce cannot tolerate.
