Season 2 recap
Hulu`s breakout hit drama series Casual has concluded its 13-episode second run on August 23, 2016. The show has already been renewed for a second season on the heels of the very successful first chapter that garnered critical acclaim, but the last episode has proven somewhat disappointing according to a number of viewers. The season finale portrayed Laura`s loss of romanticinterest in Spencer after his cancer goes into remission, Charles, the father of Alex and Valerie, turns up in their lives and asks for help in dying, and they indeed do poison his drink. Valerie makes up her mind to move out of Alex`s house. Generally, the tragic second season ended on a note that is relatively healthy, giving hope for a new beginning in the upcoming installment. The show has already been renewed for a third chapter, and will premiere in 2017. Stay tuned, and we`ll bring you the exact release date as soon as it is announced.
