God damn, #MareOfEasttown was incredible. Kate Winslet was obviously amazing. Jean Smart delivered everything wonderfully. Evan Peters made such an impact. And the rest of the cast. God damn! HBO don't make a season 2 of this. You can't recreate it. pic.twitter.com/nJkHfjPhal

Another wrote: "Mare of Easttown is the best TV series I've ever watched and I now have an emptiness inside because it's over. Give Kate Winslet her Emmy for her performance as Mare Sheehan."
Another simply said: "Hands down one of the best series I've ever watched."
Winslet recently spoke out about her reaction when director Craig Zobel offered to cut out a shot of her character displaying a 'bulgy bit of belly' during a sex scene in the series.
Speaking to the New York Times, she recalled telling Zobel: "Don't you dare."
She went on: "[My character is] a fully functioning, flawed woman with a body and a face which moves in a way that is a synonymous with her age.
"I think we're starved of that a bit."
Mare of Easttown can be streamed on Now TV or Sky Atlantic.
