The series' second season -- spoiler alert! Do not read further if you have not yet finished watching it — killed off several main characters, including Michael Pitt's Jimmy Darmody, Dabney Coleman's Commodore and Aleksa Palladino's Angela Darmody. The series also did not renew Paz de la Huerta's option, which means that it's likely her character Lucy won't be returning.
