Hostages: Season 2, Anyone?

(Spoilers ahead!)

Not wanting to give away what really happened in the two hour finale, I'd like to discuss what you thought about the way the season/series ended.

The way things ended up surely left some loose ends hanging over the cliff, so to speak. From what we've got from comments here in the community, apparently Duncan Carlisle turned himself in at the very end of the season finale. That alone opens for a follow up.

Why Hostages Will Continue...
With shaky reports of low ratings in TV Ratings, Hostages faces the always imminent axe of being pulled from airing. BUT, with a show having something to prove to its creator, Israeli producer Alon Aranya. Another Israeli show adapted in the US is Homeland that was aired as Hatufim in Israel.
