Will there be a second season of the series?
The first season of the series is aired on Netflix on February 17, 2021. The audience is excited about the second season just after the first season’s release. However, there is no clear explanation from Netflix that there will be a second season or not. Any related company has not yet renewed the series for a second season.
However, based on predictions, we see it impossible for the series to have a new season. The primary reason for this is that it is titled a mini-series, and the second is that it is based on a novel. The Behind Her Eyes novel series written by Sarah Pinborough was adapted until its stunning end in the first season. The book is not expected to be a sequel in the future, so a new drama season to adapt is unlikely.
The fans are hoping to see the dark evil secrets of Rob-Louise. We don’t think the series will get a second season but there is still a small chance to continue with original content. Netflix may want to continue the financial benefit of its current popularity. If the series is renewed for a second season, probably we will be able to see it summer of 2022. We will update our article with official information in the future.
