Did The Last Thing He Told Me End? Will there be a second season?

The Last Thing He Told Me was one of the most popular TV series on Apple TV between April and May 2023. Starring Jennifer Garner as Hannah, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Owen, and Angourie Rice as Bailey, the story is based on the book by Laura Dave, and the writer collaborated in the series’ creation. 

The plot has an exciting crescendo, and the ending has a deep meaning: What’s the purpose of Owen’s last words, “They could have been boys still love you.”

To answer all the fans, yes! The Last Thing He Told Me has come to an end. By disappearing, Owen makes his last sacrifice, leaving his daughter and his wife so they can live in safety. Therefore, the Last Thing He Told Me has a sad ending. Nicolas will keep his word, and Hannah and Bailey return home and live safely. 

Owen is not part of their lives, which is the condition that guarantees they are protected from the crime syndicate’s revenge plans. In Apple TV’s series, we see Hannah and Bailey living normally five years later, so we assume Bailey has restored her relationship with her family and no longer feels danger.

1. How Many Episodes are in The Last Thing He Told Me Season 1?

The Last Thing He Told Me has a total of seven episodes. The Apple Original is billed as a limited series. Now that doesn’t necessarily mean a potential second season couldn’t happen. We’ll have to see how much of the novel is adapted and how the story ends in the season 1 finale. 

The show stars Julia Garner as Hannah, Angourie Rice as Bailey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Owen, Aisha Tyler as Jules, Augusto Aguilera as Grady, Geoff Stults, and John Harlan Kim. 

Here are the seven episodes of the first season in order: 

  • Episode 1, “Protect Her”: April 14 
  • Episode 2, “The Day After”: April 14 
  • Episode 3, “Keep Austin Weird”: April 21
  • Episode 4: April 28
  • Episode 5: May 5
  • Episode 6: May 12
  • Episode 7: May 19

No new episodes are about to arrive in the first season, and the seventh was the final.

2. Will There Be a The Last Thing He Told Me Season 2?

The Last Thing He Told Me will not receive a second season. The series is an adaptation of the novel of the same name. Laura Dave, the author of “The Last Thing He Told Me.” The mini-series adapted the whole story, thus leaving no more materials to be adapted into a sequel.

However, in an interview, Laura debated the possibility of a sequel. She begins by plainly stating that she never intended to write a continuation of the novel.

She has seen readers engaged with the last scene as many despise how Owen walked out from his wife and daughter’s lives.

“I’ve been asked questions about this in different capacities and started thinking about the answers. So now I don’t know. I can imagine the world where that sequel could come to be.”

The author has never imagined a sequel, but the reaction to the ending might make her rethink her decision. However, only some would want to read or watch part 2, written and produced half-heartedly and solely because of audience demand.

Josh Singer, who took home the Best Original Screenplay statuette at the Oscars seven years ago (for Spotlight), also chipped in: “We sold it as a ‘limited,’ and we always imagined it as a ‘limited.’

“What I love is, you know, that Laura found when she picked the book up again, which is that you think it’s a love story about Hannah and Owen, and it’s really about Hannah and Bailey moving closer and closer together. And that’s the magic here.

And so, in some ways, that story is complete. So, I don’t know.”

The Last Thing He Told Me Season 2 seems unlikely to happen. We have to wait and see whether the massive fan following changes the mind of the makers, and they decide to return.
