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

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Summer Job is the latest reality series on Netflix, pitting a rabble of lazy Gen Z kids to work, turning their idyllic holiday into a work gig. After finishing all 8 episodes, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:


What is Summer Job Season 1 about?

Split across 8 episodes, this reality competition series sees 10 teenagers off on their dream vacation. They’re living it up, with sun, sea and sex on the horizon for the next 10 weeks at the paradisiac Mariposa House while they’re filmed. Sounds like a dream vacation right? Well… there’s a twist.

After the first boozy night, the kids are joined together outside where our host informs them this is no ordinary holiday. In fact, they’re going to have to work for their time abroad. That’s right, these lazy kids are put to work with tough bosses grilling them to do manual labour and a litany other odd jobs here and there.

At the end of the workweek, they’re given their “paycheck”. If the envelope they’re given happens to be empty, 2000 euros is deducted from the $100k prize fund they’ll walk away with at the end of the 10 weeks. Not only that, but they’re also prime to being booted out the competition and forced to head home, which occurs at the end of every working week.

We have extensive coverage of Summer Job across the site, including a full season review. You can find that HERE!


Has Summer Job been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Summer Job  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. 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, Summer Job has had a pretty mixed reaction from audiences and critics alike, given the show is essentially going to be a marmite offering with some loving and others hating what this show represents.

Given the way this show is set up, there’s definitely potential for another season, with more kids brought onboards and whisked away for this experiment. Alternatively, the series could follow each of the young adults after their time working to see if anything has changed. We’re guessing probably not!

We’re going out on a limb and predicting that this will not be renewed for a second season. The idea itself simply feels like a medley of numerous other reality shows on TV and it seems doubtful that this one will take off.

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. However, as mentioned above we could see the kids return or a brand new group thrown into working for 10 weeks. Of course, all of this is dependent on how the viewing figures are for Netflix, so we may have to wait and see.

As mentioned above, we predict that this will not be renewed but we could be completely wrong! We’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known though!
