Fans of the incredible and captivating Mare of Easttown could soon be gifted a second season.
The TV series follows Mare Sheehan (played by Kate Winslet), a police detective who is tasked with finding the person responsible for killing a single teen mum in a small Pennsylvania town.
In addition to solving the case, she's also burdened by a year-long missing persons case as well as a hell of a lot of personal drama.
After seven gripping episodes, the plot was wrapped up in a perfect way and we said farewell to Mare and the people of Easttown.
However, HBO's boss didn't rule it out a second season when asked whether we could see more of the characters down the line.
Casey Bloys was delighted to see so many people go wild for the series and said a second season could be on the cards if the creator has a decent way of continuing the story.
HBO signed a three-year deal with creator, screenwriter and showrunner Brad Ingelsby, meaning there is plenty of space for him to keep the good times rolling.
Casey told Variety: "Brad just did a fantastic job on Mare. It was a great collaboration.
"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."
Naturally, that got a lot of people excited about the possibility of a long-running detective series with Winslet at the helm.
However, Mr Bloys wants to insist that there hasn't been any conversations about a second season...yet.
He told Variety: "I don't even have any idea that there's going to be a timeline' for the second instalment.
"Usually we take the lead from our creators. There's been no real conversations about what a Season 2 would look like."
Casey also praised Kate Winslet for delivering a powerful performance throughout the series.
Her character has to deal with the grief of losing her son to suicide, her ex-husband moving on with someone new, potentially losing custody of her grandson, and dealing with the dread of a community that feels she's not doing enough to find a missing girl.
She does that while trying to solve a murder.
The HBO boss said: "I think Mare got her claws into Kate - she has been open about that.
"But there's a long way to go between that and 'Let's do it again.' The story has to be there and the reason to do it has to be there."
HBO has done this in the past when Big Little Lies was such a success that they brought it back for a second season.
