Fans are calling for another trip to Dreamland
Ryan Murphy’s latest hit “Hollywood” was intended to be a limited series but they’re hinting that Netflix isn’t done with this story of old Hollywood glamour. Netflix has indicated that they’re not looking into creating a second season for “Hollywood” but is exploring the possibility of a spin-off series.
Yesterday on the official “Hollywood” Instagram account they featured the leading lads of season 1 simply saying, “What’s that? You want more you say?” Fans first thought that a second season might be in the works but are looking more like a spinoff with the leading men of the series.
Murphy indicated it was difficult to commit to a multi-season show to have the large cast of actors commit the next several years to produce multiple seasons. Murphy says that he doesn’t want to explore the original characters further but is known for his love of anthologies including his work for “American Horror Story, “American Crime Story,” “Feud,” and more.
Fans on social media are making suggestions for the possible next season or series anthology, one suggested that they use the same characters and cast but in a different era. The series director/writer/producer, Janet Mock, replied to the suggestion on Twitter saying they have a similar version if they were to do another Hollywood story.

Ryan Murphy posted on Instagram a mock series poster for “The Tinseltown Trio” that follows the stories of the leading male roles of the original series including Archie Coleman, Jack Castello, and Raymond Ainsley. Another mock poster for “Dreamland” by the fictitious Ace Studios featuring Rock Hudson and the rest of the male leads.
Though Murphy may be teasing a possible comeback, he will be busy with a slew of upcoming projects including season 2 of Netflix’s “The Politician,” a series about Nurse Ratched from “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” along with new seasons for “American Horror Story,” “Pose,” and “American Crime Story” (focusing on Monica Lewinsky). All of these productions are experiencing delays as all filming production has shut down due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
For now it doesn’t seem like the second installment of “Hollywood” would be likely accomplished by 2022. For now we can dream and look forward to the upcoming Ryan Murphy productions.
