I May Destroy You is related to an occurrence in the life of the series’ producer and star, Michaela Coel. It follows Arabella Essiedu (Coel), a Twitter superstar turned writer, as she attempts to piece together her fractured memories of the night of her se*ual violence.
The show explores se*ual allowance, gender identification, similarity, and trauma smartly and sensitively while being honest about its humorous roots. However, that is not to say that the show cannot be gloomy at times, bordering on nihilism.
Since the show’s launch, it has entertained the public on both sides of the Atlantic. Now, fans are excited to see if there will be a second season. What we do know about it is as follows.
I May Destroy You Season 2 Release Date
‘I May Destroy You Season 1 aired on HBO on June 7, 2020, and concluded on August 24, 2020, following the broadcast of 12 episodes.
Although BBC One premiered the show a day after HBO, it completed the season more than a month ahead of the rival network on July 20, 2020. Additionally, the season is available on BBC iPlayer and HBO Max.
However, Harriet Webb, who plays Theo in the show, believes the likelihood of this happening is pretty remote.
Additionally, she stated that she would be astonished if it occurred but added that “everything is conceivable.” When questioned about her plans for the series, Coel delivered a pretty enigmatic response.
“I don’t want to give anything away,” she stated. However, I believe that after you see the last episode, you will understand.”
That response is as unclear as to the season finale. In either case, one thing is certain: She will not return to work soon. She said in the same interview that she was taking a break and would spend time with her friends and family.
It implies that even if a second season of ‘I May Destroy You‘ is created, it will not be aired until 2022.

I May Destroy You Season 2 Plot
“Ego Death” starts with Arabella recognizing David from the nightclub where she was drugged and se*ually ra*ed. Afterward, the act presents the audience with four different possible outcomes.
The first scenario is when she can exact her retribution to the letter. He doesn’t recognize her, so she tricks him into thinking she can be his next victim before drugging and abusing him with the assistance of her pals. She doesn’t even remember him.
She drags his lifeless body into her bedroom and tucks it under the mattress. When she meets David in the second scenario, she does so dressed as she did on that fatal night.
When confronted with the repercussions of his actions, David is overcome with emotion, sobbing and pleading with Arabella for her forgiveness. Now, she takes a very alert David to her flat, where they share a last embrace before the cops come.
Even though the scene is still a bar, it’s now daylight in the next scenario. In this case, Arabella is not looking for retribution. She truly cares for him. Having consenting s*x at her place is the final straw for them.
Ultimately, David leaves with her consent and is followed by the bleeding corpse from scenario 1. In the last scenario, Arabella does not move to the bar instead of watching television with her roommate. We see her shortly after the publication of her second book.
Three situations give Arabella a moment of catharsis, whether in violence, acknowledgment, or equality.
The fourth possibility, the most likely one, is the most cathartic for her, allowing her to go on. The show ends on an Italian beach, suggesting that she is interested in dating Biagio. This will be addressed appropriately in the upcoming season.
The bond between Kwame and Tyrone may potentially be shown to be blossoming in the upcoming season.
