A Teacher is a miniseries that is based on Hannah Fidell’s movie of the same name. The main characters are Claire Wilson (played by Kate Mara) who is a teacher at a suburban Texas high school and Eric Walker (played by Nick Robinson) an 18-year-old senior student at the same high school.
The first episode of the show is available on the show’s YouTube channel. The show revolves around the affair of the above-mentioned characters and how their forbidden love leads to unpleasant circumstances.
The first season revolves around the main characters and how both people find comfort in each other’s company.
Claire is in an unhappy marriage while Eric is under pressure to keep his “perfect boy” reputation maintained, the soccer team star, college applications, a part-time job, and the responsibility of his two brothers on him.
Throughout the season the fans see how both the lovers struggle with their feelings because the nature of their relationship is something that is frowned upon by society. However, both feel a deep connection with each other and want to have a future together.
As the season progresses the fans get to come across how complex things get for Eric and Claire as they are unable to hide their relationship and it slowly comes out to the people around them.
What Was the Plot of the Movie and How is it Different From the Show?
The 2013 movie that this show is the adaption of, also had a teacher named Diana Watts played by Lindsay Burdge and the student Eric Tull portrayed by Will Brittain. The movie plot, just as the show’s plot, shows how the two get close to each other and become lovers.
At first, they can sneak away and hide their relationship however as the movie moves forward the viewers see that both the lovers, Diana and Eric are unable to keep their relationship a secret and the situation spirals out of control.
Many viewers took the movie’s ending as an open ending as they see Diana crying on her bed in the last scene however some viewers have stated that it is an obvious ending and it clear as to what will happen now.
The show is yet to release all its episodes as the final episodes air on December 8, 2020, when the fans will find out what happens to the loves and whether they have a future together or not.
The show will likely end just like the movie did because it is, after all, an adaption however the show can end just the movie did with the lovers separating but it could happen in a different way than the movie.
There is also another possibility that the show might not end as the movie did and Claire and Eric do end up together and build a future however this alternative is highly unlikely as it may deviate from the whole point of the movie.
Will There be a A Teacher Season 2?
A Teacher is a miniseries the ones that only have one season and that is it. As this show is also labeled as a miniseries, it is highly unlikely that it will have another season. However, if the creators of the show decide to bring it back for another season, that is a different story.
If many fans want the show back for another season, the creators may change their original plan of keeping this miniseries what it is and turning it into a show. The creators could bring a new cast with a different story but keep it a teacher, student romance as that is the gist of the show.
There has been no history of any miniseries turning into a show however we might have missed out or this show could be one of the first ones to do that.
The wisest thing to do is to not expect another season as it has been declared as a miniseries from the beginning and there has been no news whatsoever regarding another season coming so we are keeping our hopes low!
