It appears the Hulu miniseries Nine Perfect Strangers will be back for a season two, according to Variety.

The streaming service is reportedly soon to announce that the David E. Kelley drama, which is led by actress Nicole Kidman, has been greenlit for a new batch of episodes.

Once the decision to continue on with the drama becomes official, the show will then be submitted as an ongoing drama, instead of a limited series, for this year's awards season.

By changing its category status to an ongoing drama, the show will avoid any potential controversy similar to the one when the HBO series Big Little Lies won multiple awards in the limited series category before a second season was announced. 

Season one of Nine Perfect Strangers, consisting of eight episodes, premiered on Hulu on August 18, 2021.

Based on the novel of the same name by Big Little Lies author Liane Moriarty, the story took place over a 10-day span and focused on a group of characters at a health-and-wellness resort n the fictional town of Cabrillo, California.

Promising to transform and heal guests, as part of its allure, the resort turns out not to be what it seems, and the guests soon discover many secrets about each other and the resort's host.

With plans for a new season now moving forward, there are still a few big questions that need to be answered.

Arguably, the most obvious of those unanswered questions looming for the writers and producers: will the plot feature the same characters while on their journey after their 10 day stay at the wellness retreat, or will the show become an anthology and bring in a new cast every season?

Details on season two, including casting and a synopsis of the plot, are still being hammered out ahead of the renewal announcement.

The first three episodes of the new season are slated to drop on August 18, and then the remaining episodes will debut on a weekly basis.

Kelley created the series and co-wrote the first season with John Henry Butterworth and Samantha Strauss.

Due to his busy schedule working on multiple other shows on varied platforms, Kelly is not expected to to return as the showrunner for season two.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hulu will go public and officially announce the new season once a few of these details are worked out.
