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

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Country Queen is the first Kenyan series on Netflix, armed with an intriguing story diving into family drama and corruption.


What is Country Queen about?

Country Queen is a six episode drama, focusing on Akisa, a woman who has a new life away from her childhood village. When she returns home to visit her ailing father, she finds the place much-changed from before. A mining company has discovered gold nearby and is exploiting the land for its treasure.

Akisa finds herself drawn into the middle of this conflict, as she’s forced to confront her past and decide what direction to take her life.


Has Country Queen been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Country Queen has not been renewed for a second season. Given the ending though, that could well change. After all, Country Queen (another African Original) has been renewed for two seasons.

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, Country Queen has had a pretty mixed reception from both critics and audiences alike, with some criticizing the show for dragging out its story across too many episodes.

Based on the ending and Netflix’s continued desire to expand international, we’re going out on a limb and predicting that Country Queen will be renewed for a second season.

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. The conclusion does open things up for a follow-up though.

If this one is renewed, expect the story to continue on, with Akisa returning and continuing to fight back against corruption.

We’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known though!

  1. This is what makes me mad. I get all involved in a series with an obvious incomplete ending and no firm continuing season. I have watched the first two episodes and LOVED it, read the summaries for the others and realized it was not going to have an wrapped up ending so unfortunately, I am not going to get teased any further and am stopping at the first two. If a season two does happen, i will go back to season one where I left off and continue.

  2. I absolutely loved “Country Queen” and anxiously awaiting season 2. Well done Akisa and Kyalo; I love the emotions you guys bring (actually all the actors brought what was needed).

  3. Best, one of the best I have ever watched made in Kenya. Left me wondering and wanting to know if Ekisa found her son and did Vivienne’s step son survive.

  4. Please bring season two. I binged thinking b there was more than six episodes…so I am still waiting to see what happens to Akisa and Kyalo.

  5. Binged on it💕💕💕💕couldn’t believe episode 6 was the last…pls realease the next episodes 😭😭😭😭

  6. I loved it !
    Not only entertaining but also very enlightening on social and environmental issues…
    Hoping for season 2…

  7. Really loved Country Queen sadly it ended abruptly a real cliffhanger.
    Please give us Season 2. Great acting loved all the actors. 💜

  8. Please renew. I saw one of the reviews saying that it was too slow moving, but it is actually deep and thoughtful and respectful and connects to political times and truths as well as deep love, betrayal, generational trauma and so much more. Come on Netflix, this is the kind of programming we need.

  9. yes, we definitely need a season 2 to continue the story to it’s conclusion. You left us hanging

  10. Omg just binged it and it left me wanting more. Please continue the story. I need the step mother to get hers. I need for the main character to find her son. I need those greedy brothers to realize they can’t just steal the land. I need more. Please consider season 2.

  11. Hoping u bring a season 2! Couldn’t stop watching & would love& can’t wait to see what happens in the 2nd series!Love it!

  12. I finished the first season in a one and a half day. I couldn’t stop watching 😍
    Hope that will be a season 2 🙏❤️❤️

  13. I join those who urge the producers to bring us a second and third season of Country Queen. My soul is nourished by the story and the various scenery, while praising the great acting. Please do not leave us with so many unanswered, pressing questions.

  14. Loved Country Queen I am from Kenya and was excited to see the house we lived in
    at Karen featured in episode 4 both inside and outside of the lovely house.
    I think the Netflix series was world class and the Swahili that was spoken had English subtitles.
    The story was a little bit long but still it showed what life is like in Nairobi and the villages in Kenya. I never knew that there are informal gold miners who I imagine work under unhealthy conditions and get exploited. Episode 6 ends and leaves it open for more series. Please continue with more episodes.

  15. We definitely need a season two! Season 1 was captivates due excellent storyline and acting! We want to know if Josiah is their son! Whether Vivienne and Max were charged with murder of Vivienne’s first husband! Also how the villages fought to Maintain their land from the greedy investors etc!

  16. Expecting a season 2 for sure. Totally captivating. Quite good acting along a great story line. So yes, please season 2!!!!

  17. I hereby order Netflix to commission season 2 of Country Queen. Season 1 was too phenomenal not to have a season 2

  18. Yes I need at least 2 more seasons !!! Absolutely phenomenal. I hoping that Josiah is their son and that the family continues to fight for her father’s land and those good for nothing uncles are put in their place and the mining coming turned legit or bankrupt !! Let me know whenseason 2 is READY !!

  19. Absolutely amazing series, both educational and reflective on the hidden humanitarian crimes that are most probably still happening today. Please you must continue with this drama,on all levels of human interest. Beautifully presented with passion and truthfulness.

  20. I just treasure this series. I love the atmosphere of family. The land is so beautiful. I adore culture. It’s my husband’s beautiful country of Kenya. He identifies with home so please bring it back ASAP. It’s educational , family and life rewarding.
