Have you ever been in love? The best thing about being in love is making selfless sacrifices for the well-being of your significant other, just as Harris does. American Rust is based on a book with the same name written by Phillip Meyer in 2009. Created by Dan Futterman, the series tells the story of Harris lovers’ son who is accused of murdering a homeless man then abandons the lifeless body. This series narrates the murder that causes such a stir in a small town named Rust Belt. The series premiered on Showtime on 12th September 2021, with a setting of an economically constrained region.
American Rust Season 1 Recap: What did we watch in season 1?

When the bank sends an eviction notice, she turns to his ex-husband for help. Vigil, Grace’s husband threatens the bank representatives with a shotgun, which buys Grace time to keep her house. Del receives a phone call with information regarding Billy while he is on a date with Grace.

American Rust Season 2 Release Date: Is the show being renewed or canceled for the second season?
The fact is we still don’t know yet. ShowTime has not made an official statement regarding the way forward of this series. Fans are, however critiquing these series with a ton of negative reviews. It is crazy how a film can be based on an epic book then feature reputable actors but still not fulfill the expectations of the viewers.
Despite the numerous attributes the show has, it seems like the negatives outweigh the positives. It is unfortunate that the possibility of the show being canceled is higher than the likelihood of it being renewed. Nonetheless, we are yet to find out! If by any chance the series get renewed, it will most probably premiere at the end of 2023.

On Amazon’s Freevee, Jeff Daniels’s Showtime drama has finally found a new home. Season 2 is expected to start filming later this year.
American Rust Season 2 Plot: What do we expect to watch in the second season if it gets renewed?
The ending of season one is not the usual cliche in most films: a cliffhanger that makes you long for the second season.

There is also a possibility that Del could reunite with Isaac and have a case built on all the murders he has executed.
