Renewed Or Cancelled?
Full Swing is the next sport documentary from the creators of Drive to Survive, one that focuses exclusively on the world of golf. After finishing the whole series, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:
What is Full Swing Season 1 about?
Earlier this year we had Break Point, which took a while to find its bearings before actually delivering on-pitch entertainment. It wasn’t mind-blowing but it was a solid experimental venture into a different sport altogether. Full Swing then is an interesting beast by comparison. Not only does it embody some of the better elements of Drive to Survive, it also adds elements of Break Point too.
The show takes on a similar approach as those aforementioned series, this time focusing exclusively on the world of golf. Across the 8 episodes, the focus is split between two different competitors on each of the four major golf tournaments, The Masters, PGA Championship, US Open and the Open Championship. Along the way there are play-off matches and even practice rounds to flesh out what’s predominantly a human drama at its heart.
If you’re not familiar with golf though, Full Swing does go some way to explain what’s going on. You may be confused as to why the leaderboard features minus numbers, which is eventually explained, while specific slang terms within golf – bogeys, eagles, over and under par etc. – are work to ease casuals into the world of golf.
We have extensive coverage of Full Swing across the site, including a full season review. You can find that HERE!
Has Full Swing been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, Full Swing has not been renewed for a second season. Given the nature of the show’s content, that could well change if it does good numbers for Netflix.
Generally, Netflix and other streamers gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. The completion rate is one of the most important metrics though, but it’s not something publicly shared with audiences.
With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly. Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.
So far, Full Swing has had a pretty good reaction from critics and audiences alike, commending the balance of drama and action.
Given the way this show is set up, we’re predicting that this will be renewed for a second season. Generally these sport documentaries tend to do really well on the platform.
We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!
What we know about season 2 so far:
Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Netflix have not officially green-lit a sequel. However, if this is renewed expect us to follow the next season of golf, potentially even getting more insight into LIV golf and extra golfers too.
As mentioned above, we predict that this will be renewed but we’ll have to wait and see what happens. We’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known though!

Golfs answer on Netflix to the NFL answer on the NFL HBO Hard Knocks BUT FAR BETTER !!!! The inside look at Golf ! Best sports documentary I’ve ever seen and I’m in my 60 s and been playing since I was 11 . Just Fabulous
What a show. Have loved every episode getting to know the ins and outs of all the players and especially liked Rory’s episode. Shows how much he cares and appreciates the games he’s played for 40 years. Cant wait for Tigers episode.
