As the name suggests, Camping is an HBO comedy series that revolves around a middle-aged man named Walt Jodell, whose weekend camping trip for his forty-fifth birthday turns into a chaotic misadventure. Produced by Travon Free and Regina Hayman and created by Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner, the series received mixed reviews from the critics but its fanbase liked it and accepted it quite well. The show succeeds at being a dramedy and delivers what it promises: a messy but funny group camping trip. The show is known for its honest but tactful representation of complicated human emotions. Whatever the show might depict through its characters’ journey, it surely didn’t go unnoticed and sometimes that’s all a show needs to be renewed for a second season.
The first season’s ending showed Jandice suggesting another trip, and that has left fans wondering, will there be a second season of Camping? The show’s creators may experiment with the storyline and who knows, maybe Kathryn will go on a Europe trip next season.
Camping Season 2 Release Date
The first season of Camping was received quite delightfully by its audience. It also got many stellar reviews from critics and netizens. That leaves us with nothing but hope for a second season, which may tell us how Kathryn and Walt met. The possibilities for the story to go in a particular direction are endless, ranging from backstories to a time leap. Whatever the writers and the producers may decide upon, one thing is for sure. With the eager intensity, the Camping fans are waiting for its next season, it can turn out to be a banger, just like the first season.
|Name Of The Show||Camping|
|Season Number||Season 2|
|Genre||Comedy TV Series|
|Camping Season 1 Release Date||14 October 2018|
|Camping Season 2 Release Date||Not Announced|
Some people (who were fans of the original British Camping series) said that the series had a lot to live up to, so that might be the reason it got mixed reviews. However, those who hadn’t watched Julia Davis’ Camping enjoyed it very much. All in all, Camping might not be for everyone but hey, isn’t that the case with every single show or movie out there? That surely doesn’t mean that the fans should be deprived of a second season.
The British series of the same name that Camping is based on ran only for a season, so it is hard to say if camping would be renewed for a second season. Although, here the saying ‘never say never’ may come in handy. The show’s creator Jeni Konnor hasn’t completely ruled out the idea of it. According to her, they (she and the team) had a great time making the dramedy and even though the series was made to be ‘limited’, fans might get a second season of their favorite series. She also said that a limited series is meant to give justice to the phrase, but after doing a series for so long (Girls), she might reconsider it. “Also, it’s a great idea to attract movie stars.”, she said.

Camping Season 2 Story
The story of Kathryn, Walt, and Miguel is bound to get more adventurous as in season two, fans might witness the plot getting thicker and messier. The story may continue on the same note that the first season left although the makers of the show have not confirmed anything as of yet. The fans can only speculate as to how the story of Camping’s second season might turn out, as of the present. The scriptwriters of the show might give us a backstory of our beloved characters. Just like the first season, the plot is going to be gripping and engaging, if the show continues.
The show’s unique style of unveiling hidden truths with a twist here and there is the thing that makes the show so interesting. The comedy scenes often turn into heartfelt moments without us realizing that. It captures every character’s development without making it seem like too much effort is put into it, and it also helps with the smooth transitioning of the story. The characters may seem annoyed or even clichéd at some points in the story, but their reactions and monologues make sure the viewer doesn’t realize that. According to us, the story desperately needs a second season, so that we can get some closure.

Camping Season 2 Recap
It’s been a while (almost four years) since the first season aired, so we thought we might give you a quick recap of the show. As we all know, the eight-episode story started with the introduction of Walt Jodell and his wife Kathryn McSorley Jodell, as they plan their camping trip to celebrate Walt’s forty-fifth birthday. Kathryn is caring, but at the same time, she is a bit obsessive when it comes to planning and also, a little controlling at times. Things get disheveled when Kathryn gets into an argument with her estranged best friend, Nina-Joy. The couple is also overwhelmed by the unwelcomed arrival of their common friend Miguel and (much to Kathryn’s annoyance) his latest girlfriend Jandice. Kathryn and Walt’s son, Orvis is brought to a hospital when he gets roughed up while playing flag football. The camping gets adventurous as more twists are added to the plot, making the story more interesting with each episode.
