It’s one of the most gripping new shows on TV and after a twist-filled first season, fans are gearing up for the Mare Of Easttown finale.

Kate Winslet stars in the HBO crime drama which premiered last month and quickly won over viewers.

It follows detective Mare Sheehan (played by Winslet) as she investigates the murder of a young woman in a small town near Philadelphia.

Kate is as convincing as ever as the local detective, and previously spoke about the accent she used in the new series, saying it was one of the ‘hardest’ she’s ever had to master.

If you haven’t caught up yet, the show, which is from creator Brad Ingelsby (The Way Back) and directed by Craig Zobel (The Leftovers), is described as ‘an exploration into the dark side of a close community and an authentic examination of how family and past tragedies can define our present.’

The fifth episode of the show left viewers shocked, and now there are just two episodes left.

It means the finale isn’t too far away, with the acclaimed drama hurtling towards a conclusion. Here’s everything you need to know.

The final episode of the hit show, titled Sacrament, is due to arrive at the end of the month.

Fans can tune into the finale on May 31 at 9pm on Sky Atlantic in the UK.

Will there be another season of Mare of Easttown?

The show has gone down a treat with fans and it’s only natural that viewers are calling for a second season.

However, HBO has yet to confirm a new run of episodes.

The broadcaster is billing the show as a limited series, too, which means at the moment it’s looking all that likely. Still, fans can live in hope.
