Under the Banner of Heaven is an American true crime drama TV miniseries that Dustin Lance Black wrote. It is based on a book by Jon Krakauer with the same name. He compared two histories: the start and growth of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) and the murder of two brothers in the name of God by Ron and Dan Lafferty, who followed a strict version of Mormonism.
It first premiered on Hulu on April 28, 2022. In the series, Andrew Garfield and Gil Birmingham portray two agents trying to unravel the connection between Mormons and a gruesome murder. The series received mostly positive reviews, particularly for Garfield and Russell’s performances.
As we know, ‘Under The Banner Of Heaven’ is a miniseries. This raises a question among fans: Will ‘Under The Banner Of Heaven’ return for Season 2? In this article, we will provide you with everything you need to know about ‘Under The Banner Of Heaven’ Season 2.

Will The Under The Banner Of Heaven Return For Season 2?
According to sources, Under The Banner Of Heaven Season 2 is highly unlikely to return because it has always been described as a miniseries or limited series. With the conclusion of the series, it appears that the main storyline has concluded, as Brenda and Erica’s murders have been solved, and Pyre’s work in Utah is complete. Consequently, there are no major unanswered questions or unresolved threats that would necessitate a second season, so it is unlikely that there will be one (sorry, folks).
What Is Under The Banner Of Heaven All About?
Based on Jon Krakauer’s 2003 nonfiction book Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith and created by Dustin Lance Black, this FX on Hulu true crime-drama miniseries follows Detective Jeb Pyre (Andrew Garfield), a devout Mormon whose faith is shaken by his investigation of the brutal murder of FLDS Church member Brenda Wright Lafferty (Daisy Edgar-Jones) and her baby daughter Erica. If he solves the case, Pyre may lose touch with his personality and religion.
How Did Under The Banner Of Heaven Season 1 End?
Under the Banner of Heaven’s seventh and last episode is a mix of fact and fantasy that makes for a tense and exciting way to end the story. Brenda’s brothers-in-law Ron (Sam Worthington) and Dan (Wyatt Russell) Lafferty are convicted of killing Brenda and Erica, just like in Krakauer’s book.
However, the show adds a final fight between Detective Pyre and the criminal brothers in a Reno casino, which didn’t happen in real life. Instead, the brothers were at a breakfast buffet in Reno surrounded by FBI agents and arrested without putting up a fight.
Pyre’s faith is also shaken by the end of the series, but he doesn’t leave the Mormon church, probably because his wife, Rebecca (Adelaide Clemens), threatens to take their girls and leave him if he does. Instead, he acts like the perfect Mormon father, but his heart doesn’t seem to be in it anymore after all he has seen and done.
