Good news for Mare of Easttown fans? Kate Winslet and co could be back for another series. The seven-part Sky Atlantic offering investigating the death of local teen Erin McMenamin (Cailee Spaeny) was a huge hit and now there's talk from the top news about a possible return. 

HBO executive Casey Bloys told Variety about the series written by Brad Ingelsby: "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.

"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: "I don't even have any idea that there's going to be a timeline for making a season 2 decision. Usually we take the lead from our creators. There's been no real conversations about what a season 2 would look like."

Kate Winslet recently told TVLine: "I would absolutely love to play Mare again. I miss her. I really do. It's the strangest thing. I feel like I'm in mourning. It was an absolutely wonderful role.

"There's something very addictive about Mare, because she's so outrageous and lovable and brilliant and real, you know? I loved playing her."
