Renewed Or Cancelled?
Kleo is a deliciously dark revenge thriller. Set deep in the heart of Germany in 1990, this aesthetically pleasing series is a bloody good time! 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 Kleo about?
Set in Germany, right across 1989 and 1990 (during the time of the Berlin Wall falling), Kleo actually doesn’t start off as an outright revenge thriller. Instead, the show emanates an espionage vibe as we follow Stasi assassin Kleo Straub. Hired off the books, Kleo is a proficient agent, working on behalf of her grandfather to take out various targets.
After killing a man in a West German nightclub, police – and in particular an officer called Sven – start to piece together who this woman is. When she’s subsequently arrested while heavily pregnant, with her grandfather and everyone she works with testifying against her, Kleo takes the fall and end up behind bars with a life sentence. That’s not good, and the heartbreaking betrayal continues when Kleo loses her baby too.
Consumed by anger and vengeance, Kleo bides her time. When the Berlin Wall falls and all political prisoners are free to go, Kleo sets out on a bloody revenge mission to gain some sweet payback from those responsible for putting her in prison.

Has Kleo been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, Kleo has been renewed for a second season. Given the nature of the show’s format, that’s fantastic news. Deadline confirmed this in an exclusive article several days ago.
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, Kleo has had a pretty good reception with most critics giving this show decent reviews and audiences (at the time of writing) pretty positive on this one. This is ultimately one of those thrillers that could very easily run for another season, given that cliffhanger ending and we’re so happy that it’s returning!
What we know about season 2 so far:
Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Netflix have only just green-lit a sequel. The conclusion does open things up for a follow-up though.
If this one is renewed, we could well see the contents of that red suitcase in the US revealed, with ourselves predicting that it’s an explosive of some sort. Meanwhile, Uwe and Margot are going to be out for revenge, while Kleo and Sven’s severed ties could result in a showdown between the two as well.
For now though, we’ll be counting down the days until season 2.
