And sure enough, the 2023 release did not disappoint. With Rachel Weisz playing the double-lead roles of Elliot and Beverly Mantle – twins who share pretty much everything – it scored 85 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes and had rave reviews from fans.

“Utterly mesmeric performance from Rachel Weisz, and what an incredible series this has been. She beats Jeremy Iron’s masterful performance for me, and he really nailed it back then…” one viewer shared.

“I just finished and my heart is just feeling empty, broken but very connected with the story. I wish there was a season two, highly recommended!” added another.

With that said, you may be wondering whether or not there will be a second season for Dead Ringers, among other things, so below we’ve gathered everything you need to know about the limited series.

Will there be a second season of Dead Ringers?

As of right now, there is no news on whether Dead Ringers will return for a second season. And, considering it’s been labelled a limited series from its inception doesn’t indicate much hope for a sequel.

That hasn’t put a stop to speculation among fans and critics alike, however, that a potential second season could explore the aftermath of the twins’ controversial choices. We’ll just have to wait and see.

What is the plot of Dead Ringers?

As per the synopsis, Dead Ringers follows twin gynaecologists Elliot and Beverly Mantle as they share everything: drugs, lovers, and a shared obsession with female anatomy that ultimately leads them to success and tragedy.

With an unapologetic desire to do whatever it takes – including pushing the boundaries on medical ethics – in an effort to challenge antiquated practices and bring women’s health care to the forefront, the series is a psychological thriller worth the watch.
