It’s being said that season 2 depends entirely on Gaiman. Even though the first season was appreciated by all, it didn’t end with ant cliff hangers.
In an interview, Gaiman revealed that even though he has a plot in mind for a new season which will be a backstory as to how the angel and the devil started living on Earth as humans, he also said that he doesn’t want the essence of the story to deviate from what is given in the novel.
Hence, as of now, there is no official news as to when and whether the second season will release. Until then, stay tuned.
