Light as a Feather will have 2nd season, plus fun facts!


Light as a Feather, Hulu’s supernatural thriller series, has been renewed for a second season.

Deadline has verified that the second season will consist of 16 episodes (six more than the first) and that stars Liana Liberato, Haley Ramm, Ramm, and Brianne Tju will return. Although not a critics’ darling, Light as a Feather has a strong following. Based on the story Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board by Zoe Aarsen, the series is about 5 teenage girls grappling with the supernatural results of playing the game of the same name. The game has dark results, as the ladies end up dying in the ways predicted by character Violet Simmons (Ramm) during the game.

Plot details of season 2 are scarce. However, at 16 episodes, one should expect more twists and turns than the first season could have offered. The existing preview for season 2 comes with the tagline, “The curse is back.” The first season also starred Ajiona Alexus, Peyton List, Jordan Rodrigues, Dylan Sprayberry, and Brent River. Light as a Feather is produced by AwesomenessTV, Wattpad, and Kelsey Grammer’s Grammnet.

Fun facts about Light as a Feather

1. In season 1, the episode titles area play on lines that either occurs in the game or could. Put together with the show title, it would go, “Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board, Pretty as a Picture, Dead as a Doornail, Dark as the Night, Mad as a Hatter, Troubled as the Tide, Right as Rain, Cold as Ice, Innocent as a Lamb, Slippery as an Eel.” Okay, so it’s not the best poem ever devised, but it’s cute. It’s uncertain if season 2 titles will follow this formula or if they’ll use a different approach.

2. Although the show has a low 29% Rotten Tomatoes score, it has a more respectable 6.5/10 rating at IMDb. So, as with all critiques, you have to take them with a grain of salt. The series may seem intended for teens/young adults, but it surely has fans (and potential fans) of different ages and demographics. Like anything, you might not know you like it until you’ve tried it.  In fact, it should be remembered that Kelsey Grammer’s production company produced it, and one probably wouldn’t expect him to be interested in a supernatural party game story.

4. For those who have never played “Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board,” it is a real game. Some people even claim they made somebody levitate in a group by circling someone, chanting and lifting them up. Of course, realists will come forth and spoil the illusion. When a bunch of people all lift someone simultaneously, there’s additional strength. It may create the illusion of a person being “light as a feather.” Also, because a person is chanting and presumably concentrating, the person may seem lighter still (also, if you do something repeatedly, it tends to be easier to accomplish in general).

Another factor is what Debra Ronca of Howstuffworks calls “fallible memory.” She says, “So many of us did this as children, our memories start to play tricks on us. The levitation gets higher, the subject feels lighter and the whole ordeal feels spookier.”
