Will there be The First Lady Season 2?
As you know, a second season of The First Lady will depend on how well the first one did. It could follow a successful pattern of following three First Ladies and Presidents for a long time. It would be great if we could learn more about Reagan and Carter and Johnson and Kennedy and Nixon. We could even go back further to the Wilsons, Tafts, and Lincolns.
