Rufus Sewell stars in Agatha Christie’s The Pale Horse on Amazon Prime Video. Will the streaming service renew the series for a second season?
Have you binge-watched Agatha Christie’s The Pale Horse? With just two episodes, you likely have. So now you’re looking for more of this wonderful story. Will Amazon renew The Pale Horse for Season 2?
This is highly unlikely. Like previous Agatha Christie adaptations, The Pale Horse was promoted as a miniseries. The plan was always to only create the one season, and it certainly has a beginning, middle, and end.

There’s arguably no need to add a second season to the series. It’s an adaptation of the book and there isn’t a sequel to it to tell. While the series certainly offered a loose adaptation to make Mark Easterbrook’s story the main one instead of him being a bystander, the overall storyline was mostly the same.
Instead of creating a story to continue the characters, it’s best to move on with another Agatha Christie novel. This seems to be the pattern recently, so why change the mold?
If there was the idea to bring a second season, it wouldn’t just be up to Amazon. This is a BBC production with Amazon securing the North America streaming rights. It means Amazon doesn’t get a say in the renewal even if it wanted to!
BBC tends to stick to miniseries for these works. I’d be very surprised if the network tried to get Sarah Phelps to adapt a second season. She’s worked with the BBC before with similar projects and would have gone into this knowing it was a miniseries.
