Local pastor Will Ransome assures him that it was just an accident and tells him that God will look after her. Cora Seaborne moves to Essex to investigate the case, as recently a sea creature has been spotted in the region. She does her research, and Pastor Will Ransome and Cora Seaborne’s opinions clash the more they have conversations.

The Essex Serpent Season 2 Release Date
The series is scheduled to be premiered on 13 May 2022 on apple tv once the series arrives on apple tv we will get to see how well the series performs for a few months. If the series does well for season 1, then there are chances that it will be renewed for the second season. If not, then the series cannot come back with season 2. Though in the case of The Essex Serpent, the chances for season 2 are still there because the series is based on the best selling novel and it’s most likely that the makers would like to continue the series for season 2. But unfortunately, The Essex Serpent is a mini-series and will only have 6 episodes for season 1. In the case of mini-series, the show does not get renewed for season 2. They end the story with the last episode without any cliffhangers, so nothing is left to be explored in season 2.
