The Patient Season 2 Cast
Even though season 2 of ‘The Patient series is not confirmed and is probably just a myth it would probably have the same cast as the first season as it would be following the same storyline. Or it could depict different perspectives into it to make it unique but, that would also be following the same storyline in a way. And there is also a possibility of the 2nd season having a completely unrelated story if so, the cast could not be predicted.
The Patient season 1 cast includes Domhnall Gleeson (Sam Fortner), Steve Carell (Alan Strauss), Andrew Leeds (Ezra), Laura Niemi (Beth), Linda Emond (Candace), David Alan Grier (Charlie), Alex Rich (Elias), and Amy Handelman.
The Patient Season 2 Story
Season 2 of The Patient series would not be released and if it were to release in the later future it would probably have an unrelated storyline or at the least, it would have a completely different perspective to the same storyline.
The first season of this series revolves around Alan Strauss (Steve Carell) who is a psychotherapist who recently lost his wife and is in a phase where he is mourning her death. The therapist was later kidnapped by one of his patients Sam Fortner (Domhnall Gleeson) who is a serial killer and works as a restaurant inspector. He kidnaps Alan (Steve Carell) because he wanted him to listen to all his true confessions so that he could help him suppress his murderous instincts.
The storyline extends where the psychotherapist is trying to read and clear out Sam’s (Domhnall Gleeson) mind in a way that he ends up safe and along the process he comes face to face with his own hidden troubles that he has been trying to ignore for some time. It is a surprisingly well-portrayed thriller mystery that catches the viewer’s interest and since it is a limited series it is like a boon for mystery lovers with not much time on hand to binge.
The critics state that it is one of the best works of Domhnall Gleeson and Steve Carell. The idea of the series revolving around a therapy session by a therapist who himself needs a little therapy and the serial killer who is out looking for a way to restrain his homicidal urges is quite unique. But it does overstretch the killer’s self-confidence and villain which might not be very appealing to all the viewers.
