“Season 2 will pick up immediately after the events of the Season 1 finale,” said creator Liz Astrof. “It’s going to be even more intriguing and mystical than the first season.

Expanding the Show’s Mystical Mythology

At the heart of “The Way Home” lies the mystical legend around the magical pond on the Landry family estate. Season 1 only scratched the surface of the pond’s history and abilities. Astrof predicts Season 2 will reveal stunning insights that further expand the show’s supernatural mythology.

“The pond contains many secrets yet to be unlocked, involving several characters’ backstories spanning generations,” said Astrof. “Fans will gain a much deeper understanding of how the pond’s powers have shaped the Landry family over time. And we have some exciting twists in store that no one will see coming.”

Shyer echoed Astrof’s sentiments, noting Season 2 further explores the pond’s role throughout pivotal moments in the Landry family history—including clues into beloved patriarch Jacob’s mysterious disappearance. More details about the tragic events that inspired Del to mysteriously abandon the estate will reportedly come to light as well.

For devoted fans, Season 2 promises a thrilling ride as Ali, Del, and Kat continue navigating the mystical pond’s ripple effects across time. With filming slated to wrap in early December, the countdown for new episodes is on.
