One of the latest Netflix Originals to release is The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window, a murder mystery and parody series that partially satirizes popular thriller novels and stories like The Woman in the Window and The Girl in the Train. We already discussed the ending of the show, but now let’s talk about that fun, surprise cameo at the very end and what that could possibly mean for The Woman in the House season 2, should Netflix decide to renew the show.
SPOILER WARNING: Turn back now if you haven’t finished watching The Woman in the House season 1.
At the end of The Woman in the House, Anna (Kristen Bell) takes a plane one year after the crazy events unfolding in the series to visit her best friend Sloane (Mary Holland) in New York. On the way, we get a fun surprise cameo from Glenn Close. We don’t know anything about her character, just that she appears to be a wealthy businesswoman of some sort too bad she doesn’t live very long.
After blacking out on vodka and pills, Anna wakes up to find the woman gone and then she opens the bathroom door to find her former seatmate’s dead body. When she returns with help, the body has vanished, and the confused flight attendant informs Anna that she never had a seatmate. There was no woman in seat 2A!
Is Anna seeing things? Well, when she gets back to her seat, she discovers a compact mirror stuffed into the seat that seemingly belonged to the woman. It looks like Anna has found herself smack dab in the center of yet another murder mystery.
What does this mean for the show moving forward? It looks like it could easily lead into a second season.
The Woman in the House season 2 possibilities
Considering the series just released on Netflix yesterday, it’s too early to tell if Netflix will renew it yet. But the ending appears to hint that the writers, at least, have considered what the show could look like if it were to get a second season.
It would be fun to see Glenn Close return to act alongside Kristen Bell in some capacity, although considering her character would be the main murder victim in this situation, that might not work. But there are always flashbacks! Or an evil twin!
