Has Outlast been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Outlast is the latest Netflix reality series, pitting competitors together to try and survive the longest in the wild. After finishing the whole series, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:

What is Outlast Season 1 about?

With only the clothes on their back, these men and women are forced into four teams of four initially, with the promise of a cash prize ($1 million) on the line to be the last ones standing. The only catch here is you have to be part of a team for the duration of the time out in the wild.

Teams can change members, trade them around, sabotage others and even work together to oust those not pulling their weight or acting troublesome, raising a whole bunch of intriguing moral and societal questions. When individuals quit, a flare has to be launched out in the open, signifying to everyone else that you’re gone from the game.

As one would expect, there’s plenty of drama throughout the episodes but it also never devolves to the point of feeling like an out-and-out trashy reality show bickering. There are also fleeting moments of kindness too, like when one team shares out their crab with those less fortunate. However, the longer the competition goes on for, the more desperate these individuals become and things soon turn sour late on.

Has Outlast been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Outlast 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 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, as recently revealed with the shock cancellation of 1899.

With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Irregulars) Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.

So far, Outlast has had a pretty good reaction from critics and audiences alike, with many enjoying the survival aspects of this series.

Given the way this show is set up, we’re predicting that this will be renewed for a second season. Generally reality series do really well on the platform and Outlast looks to be no exception.

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 green-lit a sequel. If this is renewed, expect a brand new group of competitors coming together and competing to be the best out in the wild. We could even see the location changed to other wild locales across the world.

As mentioned above, we predict that this will not 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!

  1. Absolutely Amazing. Ingenious non-stop intrigue and twists which kept us on the edge of our seats and hollering at the TV. Human behaviour unrolled in all it’s bloody glory. They could not have picked better competitors. Can’t wait for Season 2!!
