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

Renewed Or Cancelled?

The Nurse is a stunning retelling of “the night nurse’s” maniacal killing spree from 2012 to 2015 in a small Danish town. The four-part series is now available to stream on Netflix. Josephine Park stars as Christina, and Fanny Bernth as Pernille, the whistleblower who helped catch Christina’s brutal acts. Despite depicting a surreal form of terror, The Nurse is sedate in the representation of its serial killer, in a way that resembles Netflix’s more trusted wave of true-crime offerings.

If you’ve finished watching this one, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:

What is The Nurse Season 1 about?

The Nurse is a dramatization of the real-life scandal in a Danish hospital in the town of Lolland-Falster. Christina Hansen is a decorated nurse in emergency ward 3 of the Nykøbing Falster Hospital. She is an expert in saving people’s life. Pernille Larsen is a new joining, This is her first job as a nurse and Christina is tasked with showing her the ropes. They become close and are called the “dream team”.

Gradually though, Pernille starts seeing signs that underneath all this glitz, something is not right. Patients who aren’t “supposed to die” (meaning they do not have heart ailments or any history of it) are succumbing to it.

This forces Pernille to look at Christina in a new light and muster the courage to see the ugly, dark truth about her excessive need for attention and recognition.

Has The Nurse been renewed for season 2?

Unfortunately, there is not going to be a season 2 for The Nurse. It is not Netflix’s decision but the nature of the plot that forces this outcome. The makers have adapted the real-life story in its entirety from Kristian Corfixen’s 2021 novel of the same name.

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

So far, the show has raked up  decent viewership numbers and has got a good response from audiences too. It is a pity that such a show is not being continued but understandable since a second season is not feasible.

What we know about season 2 so far:

Since the series has not been renewed for season 2, there isn’t much to discuss in this segment. The Nurse was a valiant effort from Netflix and it ought to open their eyes to the possibility of dramatizing more true-crime stories instead of going for the jugular of generic, boring documentaries.
