How Did The Spiderwick Chronicles Season 1 End?

The Spiderwick Chronicles is centered around Helen Grace who decides to move to a house that belongs to the ancestors of her children. She has twins Simon and Jared who are 15 years old as well as a girlchild named Mallory.

The house is named Spiderwick and certain mysterious things surround it. Later, Jared finds out that the house is inhabited by some creatures of mysterious origin. He tries to tell everyone but they shrug it off. After the advice of Lucinda, his great-aunt, Jared has to go look for a guide that will help the fantastical creatures from Mulgarath which is an Ogre.

The final episode of the show ends with the family members finally entering the house where the dragon has been around. Despite having initial plans to eliminate the dragon, Jared plans to not do it and that is when a doppelganger of him shows up.

A lot of confusion around who is the real one takes place. The first one was actually Mulgarath and he is stabbed while the real one survives. But it turns out to be Mulgarath. The actual one is in the realm of the fairies where he finally reunites with Arthur Spiderwick who was his great grandfather.

Is The Spiderwick Chronicles Season 2 Happening?

The makers have not confirmed whether The Spiderwick Chronicles Season 2 is taking place or not. Since the show has just wrapped, we can speculate that The Roku Channel is looking at the numbers of viewership before they determine anything. Since this fantasy series is expensive to make, a nice response is needed for the second season to actually go on the floor.

What To Expect From It?

The way the first season ended, there is so much to say in The Spiderwick Chronicles Season 2. The fate of Jared as he is stuck in a fairy realm can be explored in the next season. Mulgarath was able to give a shock as he was alive and tricked the family into attacking someone who was the actual real Jared.

The final episode showcased him meeting Arthur so that in the next season, they could actually team up and come back to the human realm. We can expect a faceoff of the two with the evils and Mulgarath in particular. A lot of drama will ensue and the second season might be darker than the first one.

Who Will Be In The Cast?

If The Spiderwick Chronicles Season 2 happens, its principal cast is expected to make a comeback. This includes Lyon Daniels (playing Jared Grace), Noah Cottrell (Simon Grace), Mychala Lee (Mallory Grace), Joy Bryant (Helen Grace), Christian Slater (Mulgarath), Jack Dylan Grazer (Thimbletack), Alyvia Alyn Lind (Calliope) and Hunter Dillon (Hatcher) among others. We can also expect the addition of some new actors since the second season might introduce a set of new characters depending on the new situation.
