Hulu’s The Path concluded its engrossing (if occasionally uneven) first season Wednesday with multiple cliffhangers, at least one major head-scratcher and lots of fertile ground to cultivate in Season 2. Below, series creator Jessica Goldberg sheds surprising light on the climactic quasi-resurrection witnessed by Aaron Paul’s Eddie, divulges the foreshadowing embedded within that unholy toast between Sarah (Michelle Monaghan) and Cal (Hugh Dancy), explains why the heck Hawk (Kyle Allen) didn’t follow his dad outta dodge, and drops a tantalizing spoiler about the already-ordered second season.

Are you staying on the straight and narrow? The Path TV show has been renewed for a second season on Hulu. The new drama series, following members of the fictional cult, the Meyerist Movement, debuted March 30th.
The Path, Hulu's drama about a fictional cult called Meyerism, won't be deprogrammed just yet -- it's getting a second season, announced before its first concludes. The show stars Aaron Paul, Michelle Monaghan, and Hugh Dancy -- a pretty stellar cast to be sure, but the result, according to HitFix's own Alan Sepinwall, was "dry" and "claustrophobic." Unlike Netflix, Hulu doesn't drop entire seasons all at once, so The Path is seven episodes in to its 10-episode debut season. The finale will be released on May 25. Hulu also announced a fifth season for The Mindy Project, which it picked up last year after Fox cancelled the Mindy Kaling series. Its fourth season finale will be released on July 5. Picking up The Mindy Project was an expensive gamble for Hulu -- it ordered 26 episodes (compare that to Netflix and Amazon series, whose seasons are half as long) without knowing if they »

Six weeks into its freshman run, Hulu’s The Path has been renewed for a second season. The streaming service is expected to announce the pickup at its upfront presentation in New York this morning. The Path, starring Aaron Paul, Michelle Monaghan and Hugh Dancy, is Hulu’s first ongoing original series. It has been renewed after launching to strong reviews from critics.

There's something creepy yet haunting about "The Path," in which a tornado levels a town and enables a religious cult to expand its power as an extended family. The central conflict revolves around the ambitions of charismatic leader Cal (Hugh Dancy), the crisis of faith for follower Eddie (Aaron Paul) and the precarious impact on his marriage to Sarah (Michelle Monaghan). With the support of director Mike Cahill, exec producer Jason Katims ("Friday Night Lights") and creator Jessica Goldberg, there was a freedom to be minimalistic and observational. This certainly impacted the cinematography of Yaron Orbach and co-editor Tad Dennis.
