Although the Sara Bareilles and JJ Abrams TV series debuted over a year ago, Apple TV + only spoke about its future in the first days of August. Most of the service’s original titles received renewal well in advance; just think of The Morning Show, Dickinson, and Truth Be Told. Little Voice, on the other hand, wasn’t so lucky. The platform has chosen to cancel the show.
On the occasion of the loading of the season finale, Sara Bareilles told The Hollywood Reporter :
“I believe that any projection into the future is futile for the situation the world is in now. At the moment, everything is paused. There is plenty of room to see what happens to Bess moving forward, but we don’t have any concrete plans to date.”
If Little Voice had a season 2, we would have continued to follow Bess as she tried to do what she could to establish herself in the music business. Furthermore, during 1 × 09, after having definitively closed relations with her mother and with the hope of finding her father, the young woman lets herself go to what she feels for Samuel. The relationship with the musician deserved to be deepened. In this regard, the protagonist Brittany O’Grady had stated:
“In a potential second season, I would be thrilled to see what could happen between Samuel and Bess, what could happen with her career, and what impact the industry could have on her if she accesses a broader and more professional environment.”
Unfortunately, however, we will not see any of this. It was expected that the show would be canceled after Brittany O’Grady was cast in the potential ABC TV series Epic.
Cast: Actors & Characters
If Apple TV + had chosen to renew Little Voice for a season 2, we would have found without problems our protagonist, Bess King, played by Brittany O’Grady. Furthermore, given the ending of the first chapter, we would have expected to see Samuel ( Colton Ryan ) again. Together with them, then, the following actors could also return with their respective characters :
- Shalini Bathina as Prisha
- Kevin Valdez as Louie
- Phillip Johnson Richardson as Benny
- Nadia Mohebban as Ananya
- Mark Blane as Zack
- Ned Eisenberg as Al
- Sam Lazarus as Phil
- Samrat Chakrabarti as Anil
