“Stumptown” gets renewed for season 2 by ABC
Amidst the production shutdown caused by coronavirus pandemic, the fate of many shows hang in balance. However, good news for the comic book-based “Stumptown” fandom came in as ABC announced the renewal of the show for season 2. Stumptown is an acronym for the city of Portland. Cobie Smulders plays the role of an army veteran who is attempting to become a private investigator.
What will happen in Stumptown Season 2?
The last episode and season finale “All Hands on Dex” shows Dex tracking down Benny’s killer, and understanding how she was involved in her death. The Stumptown finale revealed enough new facts to allow Dex some peace, but didn’t completely close the door on her past. In an interview, Cobie Smulder said “It ends in a very violent way that’s probably going to affect her in a new and different way.” After solving the mystery around the death of Benny in the first season, the finale set up a new plot in its final minutes: the arrival of Dex’s long-disappeared mother. Dex’s search for her parents and attempt to reconnect with them has been one of the key story lines across season 1. However, the mom actually is not shown in the last episodes and it is fair to think that she will be central to Stumptown’s season 2 main story line.
Cobie mentioned “It’s always been a fascinating and emotional storyline, not just in asking what exactly happened to them, but in the harshness, really, of what these parents did to abandon their son and leave them in the care of one of their other children”. She added “It’s one of the causes of Dex’s bitterness. She’s just pissed off a lot of the time”.
The show is based on the graphic comic book series of the same name
“Stumptown” is based on the series of graphic novels by the same name and stars Cobie Smulders as the leading lady. The story is set in the city of Portland and follows a tough and astute Army Veteran, Dex Parios whose personal life is as complicated as it gets. From love problems to gambling habits, Dex finds herself in the most impossible situations. Her phenomenal military intelligence skills and sharp personality, however, help her to navigate criminal cases like no other.
