Has The Recruit been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, Netflix has officially confirmed that The Recruit will be returning for a second season! So far, the show has received positive feedback from both fans and critics alike, which is always a good sign.
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 decide a show’s future. As the CEOs have recently come out and said they’ve never cancelled a “successful” show, based on time, money and audience size, it’s good news for fans looking out for more crime thriller shenanigans.
