I cannot even emphasize how much I’m awaiting Devs season 2. The science-fiction thriller television miniseries Devs was produced, written, and directed in the United States by Alex Garland. It debuted on FX on Hulu on March 5, 2020.
Software developer Lily Chan (Sonoya Mizuno) works for Forest’s quantum computing business Amaya (Nick Offerman). Lily quickly gets involved in the enigmatic passing of her boyfriend, who passed away on his first day at a new job at Devs. The show examines ideas about Silicon Valley, free choice, and determinism. Critics praised its creativity, cinematography, acting, and soundtrack, and it earned generally favorable reviews.
So, it doesn’t come as much surprise that Devs season 2 is much awaited by fans worldwide. Here’s all the info I’ve got about Devs Season 2!
Devs Season 2 Release Date
On October 5, 2019, the first teaser for the series was made public. The first two episodes of the series were made available on March 5, 2020, and the remaining episodes debuted on Hulu every week under the “FX on Hulu” banner. The series debuted on Hotstar in India on March 6, 2020. On April 15, 2020, the show had its UK television debut on BBC Two. The entire series was simultaneously made accessible on iPlayer. Fox Greece acquired the show on September 23, 2020, and on September 28, 2020, it premiered.
Even though Devs Season 1 was released two years ago, there have been no announcements on a second season. This is so because Devs was once referred to as a “limited” series. Thus, despite the show’s enormous success, it is possible that it will not be renewed for a second season.
The director of the program, Alex Garland, stated that he is not presently working on Devs Season 2. Instead, he is engaged in a fresh endeavor that will bring the Devs cast back together.
However, neither Hulu, the show’s streaming service, nor any creators have officially canceled Devs. Consequently, there is still a remote chance for a second season. Garland needed two years to complete the first season. We may anticipate the release of season 2 between 2024 and 2025 if the timing stays the same.

Devs Season 2 Plot
Devs’ conclusion highlights Lily’s significance in the overall scheme of things since she decides against acting in the way that the Devs software had projected she would. She throws her gun away rather than killing Forest and falling to her death. They both still pass away as a result of Stewart’s (Stephen McKinley Henderson) choice, but Katie may utilize the information from their deaths to resurrect them in the Devs system. Devs conclude with Forest being reunited with his wife and children in what Forest refers to as an eternity, and Lily returning to Jamie (Jin Ha). Will there be more to this story?
The existence of the second season of Devs has not yet been confirmed, and it may never. Devs were referred to as a limited series from the very beginning of the project’s production. Garland hasn’t specified how the narrative will proceed at this moment. Hulu decided against ordering a second season as a consequence. Season 2 is unlikely unless Garland expresses interest in keeping Devs alive. Devs season 2 seems less likely given that Garland has stated he is working on a new project to get the ensemble back together.
Even if the second season of Devs is far from certain, there are some exciting paths the plot may go. Inside the Devs system, Lily and Forest may experiment with their new lives, giving them the chance to exist outside the Devs system. Applying the many-worlds theory and introducing the multiverse, however, also makes it possible for Devs season 2 to be more like an anthology, where a similar tale with the same people is explored, yet some changes may exist since they made different choices in the past.
Devs Season 1 Recap
Here’s a little memory jog. You might want to bookmark this page for when Devs season 2 is out!
The ending of Devs season 1 was, to say the least, very, very mind-gripping. To get his job back at the now fully operating Devs, Lyndon goes to Katie. She suggests that he demonstrate his belief in the many-worlds interpretation by standing at a precarious height overlooking the Crystal Springs Dam. She makes the argument that he will only be aware of the worlds in which he does not perish. She then invites him to rejoin the project.
He follows through on this vision but perishes in the real world. Lily and Jamie go off where they left off, and she tells him she intends to demonstrate to the Devs team that they are crazy by not turning up when the machine says she will. Kenton breaks into her flat, shoots Jamie with a silenced gun, and then tries to strangle her before being shot and killed by Pete.
Pete admits to being the Russian spy that had been watching over Sergei. He gives Lily the option of joining the CIA or leaving for Hong Kong and never coming back to the US. Lily instead goes to Devs.
Forest gives Lily a vision of what Lily would do while holding him at gunpoint within the Devs laboratories. Lily will push Forest into the capsule leaving Devs and shoot him there. Beyond this point, Devs are blind; the capsule will collapse, and Lily will perish in the fall. Lily is informed by Forest that the system’s true name is Deus and that all of their acts have been predestined.
As planned, Lily guides Forest inside the capsule, but as soon as the doors lock, she throws the pistol away, startling Forest. Forest and Lily die after the capsule crashes due to Stewart’s actions. Stewart informs Katie, who is in shock, that the system needs to be halted before he leaves.
The day Sergei joined Devs, Lily awakens out of the blue and discovers Forest playing with his wife and children in an empty field where the Devs building formerly stood. He informs her that the two of them are the only ones who remember what occurred and that they are currently participating in a simulation inside the Devs system. In the actual world, a distraught Katie tells Senator Laine about the Devs system and begs her for assistance in keeping it operational. Lily rejects Sergei inside Devs and wants to make amends with Jamie.
