Apple TV+ Renews The Last Thing He Told Me


Apple TV+ has renewed The Last Thing He Told Me for a second season, based on Laura Dave’s sequel book, set to publish in 2025.

Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine and 20th Television will produce the new season, which will see Aaron Zelman join as co-showrunner and executive producer alongside co-creator Josh Singer. Jennifer Garner, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Angourie Rice and David Morse are set to reprise their roles.

Garner stars as Hannah Hall, a woman who has to forge a relationship with her 16-year-old stepdaughter, played by Rice, in order to find out the truth about why her husband has mysteriously disappeared. The complete first season is available on Apple TV+.

Executive producers for the series are Dave, Singer, Zelman, Garner and Hello Sunshine’s Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter.

“Like so many people, I fell for Hannah on page one of Laura Dave’s gripping novel,” Garner said. “The move to actor and producer from reader and super fan was delicious—and made even sweeter by collaborating with Laura, Josh, Reese and everyone at Hello Sunshine, as well as the amazing teams at Apple and 20th. Being part of this group, not to mention part of such a stellar cast, was a career highlight for me. I’m thrilled to get to tell more of Hannah’s story. I couldn’t have said yes more quickly to season two! These characters and their story mean so much to me, as I know they do to the many who have championed our show; we’re excited to give audiences even more with this next chapter.”

Witherspoon commented, “We are thrilled to be bringing this incredible team back together for another season of The Last Thing He Told Me on Apple TV+. The audience response to Laura Dave’s gorgeous novel and Jen Garner’s stunning performance in the series was so gratifying for all of us at Hello Sunshine. We can’t wait to dive in and see what’s in store for Hannah Hall in season two.”

The Last Thing He Told Me quickly became so beloved by global audiences, and we’re incredibly excited to expand the world of Laura’s best-selling novel, alongside this amazing creative team led by Reese and Jennifer,” said Matt Cherniss, head of programming for Apple TV+. “Season two will take viewers on an even more exhilarating ride with more mysteries, twists and turns around every corner, and we can’t wait to explore the next chapter for these captivating characters.”

“I’m over the moon to continue telling the story of Hannah and Bailey,” Dave said. “The response to The Last Thing He Told Me has been truly extraordinary, and I’m grateful to everyone who read and shared the book and made this possible.”

Singer added, “Working with Jennifer Garner, Angourie Rice and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has been fantastic in every way, and Laura and I are thrilled to reunite with them as well as Reese, Lauren and the incredible teams at Hello Sunshine, 20th Television, Apple TV+, and the entire cast and crew. We’re thrilled Aaron Zelman is joining us to help lead our show as we dive into the exciting new season.”
