Here’s everything we know:

What is Anthracite Season 1 about?

The show is set 30 years after the mysterious suicide of a group of villagers in the Alps. In 2024, a murder takes place which is set up like a cult ritual embraced by the same village with all fingers pointing at Jaro Gatsi, an outsider who is on a self-discovery journey. He crosses paths with Ida, a quirky and novice reporter who is looking into the same cult to find her missing father. But as they start delving deeper into the secrets of the village, secrets of their own past bubble up that are all linked to the incident that took place in 1994.

Has Anthracite Been Renewed for Season 2? 

At the time of writing, Netflix hasn’t announced the second season of Anthracite.

Netflix tends to look at views and the drop-off rates before renewing or cancelling the show, along with the critical success. Some shows are instantly renewed like One Piece and Bridgerton while others take years such as The Watcher and The Victim’s Game.

However, it is unlikely that we will get Anthracite Season 2 as it has been labelled as a miniseries which usually has a one-season run.

What do we know about Anthracite Season 2?

Not much is known about Anthracite Season 2 at the moment given that it has not been greenlit. The show ends with Jaro Gatsi finally getting closure about his mother’s death which turns out to be murder. In the mid-credit scene, Ida posts that her dad’s documentary on the Ecrins cult has been completed and we get a small preview. During Ida’s interview for the documentary, she runs off as her team has found new CCTV footage of a mysterious package.

This open ending allows for more material should the show be renewed. Or it can turn into an anthology of types with Ida and the crew looking into more cases involving cults.

If the show does return, you can expect a season with approximately 6 episodes, each lasting around 50 minutes. However, nothing is confirmed yet, but we’ll be sure to update this page as soon as any new information comes in.

  1. Excellent mini series. I HAD to watch it in one hit. There has to be a season 2. I’m hooked.

  2. Definitely need a second season. Too many unanswered questions and what was in that creepy package?
