The creators did not say anything on this matter at first. However, now we have news regarding the second season of Dodger.
Dodger Season 2 is not going to come out. Nonetheless, in addition to the already released episodes, the creators have decided to come up with 3 other episodes which are termed as Specials. Some people are considering these 3 Specials as the second season of Dodger. These 3 Specials are going to be related to the initial storyline of the show. One of these specials will consist of a Christmas Special episode. We got the news that the filming of the episodes has come to an end. The television show Dodger is set to return on 27th November 2023. As of now it is not known whether all the 3 Specials will be dropped together or not.
As has been mentioned earlier, these Specials are going to be a continuation of the initial storyline of the series. Season 1 ended on a cliffhanger with Dodger being deported to Australia. The 1st Special episode will encapsulate Dodger’s return to London. The 2nd Special will be a Christmas special episode. In the last Special episode, we will probably witness the gang getting educated. In short, we can say that the 3 Specials will be interesting to watch. The 3 Specials are going to be ingrained in the storyline of Dodger. They are going to fit into the entire story extremely well.
Before Dodger became the Artful Dodger, he was known as Jack Dawkins. Jack Dawkins was born in Victorian England. He was born as an orphan. Dawkins had no parents or relatives who could take care of him. As a result, he had to take care of himself. He was all alone in the notorious society. Consequently, a cruel mill owner bought Jack Dawkins. The mill owner used to exploit Jack by making him work inhumanely and beating him all the time.
In order to save himself from the circumstances, Dodger decides to run away from the mill owner when he is 12 years old (the present). He runs away to Victorian London, a notorious place. Here, in London, he becomes a part of Fagin’s gang. Now, this gang consists of young children who are pickpockets. Soon, Jack Dawkins becomes the Artful Dodger and starts leading this group of young pickpockets. His adventures make the series all the more interesting. The police are always at his tail, but they never get an opportunity to catch the Artful Dodger. If you want to witness the journey of the Artful Dodger, you will have to watch the series Dodger.
