    In case you haven't heard, HBO crime drama Mare of Easttown is pretty popular.

    Like, so popular, the season finale became the most watched TV episode in HBO Max history.

    Naturally, fans want more.

    We need a second season of Mare of Easttown and we’re probably not getting it. *climbs ladder into attic*

    According to Variety, HBO was so impressed with Mare creator Brad Ingelsby, they signed a three-year exclusive deal with the guy.

    So does that mean a second season is on the horizon?

    Maybe — according to HBO chief Casey Bloys.

    "If Brad felt like he had a story to tell that felt like it would be at the same level, I think everybody would be open to [a second season]," he told Variety.

    “Right now, he doesn’t have that story. Who knows? We’ll have to wait to see if they come up with something they’re dying to tell.”

    "I don't even have any idea that there's going to be a timeline" for a second season, he added. "Usually, we take the lead from our creators. There's been no real conversations about what a Season 2 would look like."

    It's not a yes; it's not a no. But hey, we could always just rewatch the first season, right?
