What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
The plot in Apple’s new project touches on the real-life events of serial killer Larry Hall. From 1980 to 1990 he terrified all of America and it is believed that more than 45 women fell victim to him. However, not all of the murders could be proven and the criminal himself deceived the police for a long time. In Apple’s novelty, the center of the story is not the killer himself, but a guy named Jimmy Keane.
As the son of a policeman, he gets caught selling drugs, which leads to a ten-year prison sentence. However, the young man is given a choice – to serve a full term in a regular prison without parole or go to a maximum-security colony the maniac, which can serve as an early release of the guy. Further events will be covered in the series Black Bird, whose release date is July 8, 2022.
Check out information about other TV show sequels like: Elite season 7, Squid Game season 2, Manifest season 5, Titans season 4 and The Owl House season 3.
The capture of Larry Hall was not a victory for the police for the reason that not all the murders could be proved and attributed to the maniac, although everything indicated that they were committed by one person. This did not allow for capital punishment and shortly before the end of the perpetrator’s term of imprisonment, the investigators came up with the idea of planting a man with him who could uncover the truth. It became Jimmy, and whether the guy was able to achieve the desired, the new project from Apple TV will tell. The Black Bird series will be released on July 8, 2022.
Viewers will see that a simple task turns out to be a difficult one. The wordy maniac is happy to brag about his adventures in front of a young cellmate, which gives the necessary information, but later it turns out that all the stories are just a game, and whether there is at least some truth among them will have to find out the investigators. Along with Taron Edgerton in the series played Ray Liotta, Hauser Paul Walter and others. The series is scheduled to be released on July 8, 2022.
