Kate Winslet returned to the small screen in a big way. She was front and centre of the hit show 'Mare of Easttown', which followed a detective investigating the murder of a local teen.

While Kate has expressed her interest in returning for a potential season 2, the creator of the show isn't entirely convinced we will get one!

Speaking to TVLine, creator Brad Ingelsby said "If we can crack a story that is as great [as Season 1] and that would do justice to the characters and carry on the story in a way that was organic and yet surprising, I would love to do it."

He added that "I just don’t know what the story is. That’s the issue right now."

The head of HBO (The TV company who produced the show) have also spoken about the show's future.

"If Brad felt like he had a story to tell that felt like it would be at the same level, I think everybody would be open to it," they said.

"Right now, he doesn’t have that story. Who knows? We’ll have to wait to see if they come up with something they’re dying to tell,' he added, 'usually we take the lead from our creators."

Figners crossed we see these great characters back on the screen soon!
