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

Renewed Or Cancelled?

The Longest Night is the latest thriller on Netflix, combining elements from Prison Break and La Casa De Papel into a high-octane and breathless series.

If you’ve finished watching this one, you may be wondering if this one’s been renewed or cancelled. Well, read ahead and we’ll let you know what we know so far about a renewal!


What is The Longest Night about?

The story is simple enough, with several layers to its conflict. At the heart of this is a serial killer known as Simon. In the middle of the night, he’s arrested and moved to a psychiatric prison called Baruca, where Warden Hugo is called in on the eve of Christmas to process him.

Unbeknownst to poor Hugo and the others, armed mercenaries are en-route and intend to take Simon alive, having been hired by a mysterious contractor, who has his own plans for the night.

So with mercenaries on the way, Hugo’s situation is made all the more precarious when he learns his other daughter, Laura, is being held to ransom. If they don’t hear from Simon at 1am then they’re going to kill her. This puts Hugo in an impossible situation, juggling the life of his family against the lives of those inside the prison.

We have extensive coverage of The Longest Night across the site, including a full season review and recaps for all episodes. You can check those out HERE.


Has The Longest Night been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, The Longest Night has not been renewed for a second season. Given the ending though, this one is almost screaming for a sequel given nothing is resolved in the end.

Generally Netflix gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate per episode. 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, The Longest Night has had a mixed reception from critics and audiences alike. The pacing is absolutely breathless in this one and whether people connect with the characters or not is up for debate.

Given how similar this show is to the likes of La Casa De Papel (which is ongoing through its Korean remake counterpart), we’re predicting that The Longest Night will not be renewed for a second season.

We’ll be sure to update this section with more details as they become available.


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, if the streaming giants do renew this one, we’re obviously going to see a continuation of all these plot points. Will Raquel have her baby inside the prison? Will Laura survive her ordeal? How will Simon fare inside the prison? And what will Manuela do now that she learns Espada is still alive?

Despite all these questions, we’re going out on a limb and thinking The Longest Night is going to be a summer casualty and there will not be a season 2. We will aim to update this page when more information becomes available!

  1. The Longest Night absolutely needs a Season 2! Season 1 is fabulous–and leaves so many questions unanswered. Really hope that Netflix steps up and greenlights Season 2.

  2. OMG! WHY does Netflix do this cliffhanger if there is no renewal … if they took season 1 they know they either need to make a real ending or se season 2 it!!! Ugh
    Upsetting !

  3. PLEASE give us at least another season!! The ending left us breathless for another season. Please don’t leave us hanging!!

  4. The show obviously has capture the audience attention. And certainly the audience wants to have all the unanswered questions answered. Who’s calling the shoots; will Raquel have her baby at 27 weeks? Will Laura survive? Also will Simon continue to kill in prison. This absolutely can not be a cliffhanger!!!!

  5. Full of so many plot holes, it deserves 100 percent rotten tomatoes.
    Happens in one night?
    A lot of people are unhappy it didnt finish at the end of the first season as it is carrying on too long.

  6. Got to be another series. Too many unanswered questions. Wasted so much time for nothing even though I enjoyed it

  7. Omg!!!! I absolutely LOVED this show!!! The first season ended with way too many unanswered questions. There must be a second season!!!!! Please don’t disappoint those of us who truly enjoyed the first season ~~~~

  8. I agree with all the other comments. This is not how to end a series and definitely not the way to run a business. I don’t plan on watching another show with series because it may end like this one. Good luck Netflix with keeping customers.

  9. Decent show, but not worth a 2nd season.
    Sometimes its also good to leave an ambiguous ending, and leave it to your imagination.

  10. This was a great show. Hopefully there will be a season 2 otherwise why bother seeing season 1!

  11. It can’t end this way. It’s stupid to do so. It must have a completion or stop making programs with no ending

  12. Pls do a season 2. There were too many situations left unfinished. Thats not fair. I enjoyed the 6 episodes of season one.

  13. that’s stupid, they should have at least made a 7th episode and close out the story… instead of being at the mercy of netflix. Such a stupid way to plan a show.

  14. Loved this short series , kept me very interested but the ending sucked. If there were a 2nd season this would be on my top 10. Leaving us hanging definitely sucks. You need a conclusion and whoever wrote this obviously wasn’t thinking ahead.

  15. I hope there is a 2 nd season I mean how can u leave us hanging like that that was not an ending it was oh we’ll come on now u have to give us a decent ending at least

  16. PLEASE PLEASE a Second Season Of The Longest Night!!! Please we beg you !! Sooooooo ENJOYED but now we’re hanging of what’s going to happen to everyone!! Please beg you a second season!! 🙏♥️🤗

  17. Please please please 🙏 give us a 2nd season and close it up . Don’t leave us hanging . I personally enjoyed watching this edge of seat series .

  18. You got us this far and what….no more episodes? I was prepared to finish my bucket of 🍿 Seriously? C’mon man! (as u no who would say) Put a fantastic ending together for us fans!!!

  19. Thanks anonymous! You should get a job as a critic😂 There you are whinnying about whiners 😳 How about being proactive and give us some information we can use. Like , where we can whine to Netflix directly? I’ve got plenty of time to give Netflix a ton of 💩💩💩! How about some info, baby!!!😉

  20. This site isn’t a Netflix site, its a review site. If you want Netflix to renew it, email them. Secondly, you have to wait for a new season because it takes time to make shows. They require a lot of time and effort. It’s a great show, I hope they renew it. It would be a real travesty if they didn’t. This is one of the best suspense shows I’ve seen in a long time. They did a really good job and honestly, there is a lot going on. Is hugo involved in ways we don’t know? Is that guy who was in the background pulling strings the head of prisons or something? How come they didn’t know that was Hugo’s daughter, they had tied up yet they have a picture with him? Lot of stuff going on. I honestly don’t agree with the assessment, I think it will be renewed. I think most of the negativity is from people who can’t appreciate a proper work, and accept it for what it is. I see it in the comments here people whining. about there not being an ending. It’s a show, it’s not a movie they’re meant to exist for more than one season. If people can’t accept that they shouldn’t watch them if it’s going to piss them off. Otherwise just enjoy it. If you want an ending, stop whinging about it, give it positive feedback, and learn to have some patience and discipline .

  21. If Netflix doesn’t conclude this series, I’m done with them and will drop their service permanently. Long time subscriber, but I can’t deal with investing time in a series and not have an ending. Very poor business model. Guess that’s why so many subscribers have left for good.

  22. How could Netflix just leave us hanging?
    We need season 2 or at least 1 show to close the series out. Maybe a movie. This is so unfair.

  23. We definitely need a season 2 to answer all the questions on who was behind it and what happens to the various characters

  24. Pathetic!!!! At least make an en episode with the end ! Netflix sucks in this case : loss of time….😤👎

  25. I can’t believe can do something like that to us, people paid for Netflix, this is not right. I’m not happy with this. Not ok. Need season 2, and don’t think to make this decision and don’t think about people see and like Netflix.

  26. This is pure BS. Feel like I wasted 6 hours of my life thinking there would either be a conclusion or a season 2 at the very least. I suppose I have to watch my language but Netflix has sunk to a new low they don’t figure out how to renew this show. There are a lot of pissed off people out here we’re already disenchanted with Netflix.

  27. Necesitamos desesperadamente un cierre de la historia. La emoción de la primera temporada es trepidante y apta para cardíacos. No sé si esto sirva escribirlo aquí, PERO QUEREMOS UNA SEGUNDA TEMPORADA con un cierre se toda la historia.

  28. Loved the show! Want to see what happens next. You left us in suspense! Please renew it

  29. This is a great show. It peaks r interest. I just binged watch it n I love it. However we need a season 2. U can’t just end a good show with a cliffhanger n leave us wondering what’s next. Please please have a season 2. We r all going to b waiting. Again it’s a great show. We will all b very disappointed if there isn’t.

  30. Renew for season 2. Don’t drop all of us off without a conclusion. Season 1 was great, left me wanting more.

  31. Please let there be season 2, very disappointing the way it ended, we need to know what happens to everyone. I enjoyed the show but not how it finished.

  32. I hate episodes shows because they always tend to leave you in suspense with no ending that’s unfair please bring back a better ending it’s really excitedly good

  33. I love the show but what a waste of time watching it when it doesn’t have an ending.!!!! I can’t believe that you can produce a movie with no conclusion not happy Jan !!!!

  34. I binged on the show and absolutely loved it. I can’t believe that you would produce a movie and not have an end to it I agree with the others it’s like watching a movie and walking out before it ends . Not happy!!!

  35. I just binge watched this until 4:00 am in the morning and expected an outcome only to see there was none. I wasn’t expecting a cliffhanger such as this. Renew, renew. Can’t leave us hanging and I agree sooner than later.

  36. It’s superbly done, and I’ll be mad as hell if there isn’t a second season.

  37. YOU DIFFENTLY HAVE TO HAVE A SECOND SEASON. IF NOT , YOU’LL LOSE A GREAT DEAL OF FANS.

  38. Another season but soon I don’t want to wait another year for season 2.

  39. This is a great show and if the ratings drop is the ending.. seriously.. it cannot end like that while being on a still I have no clue as why and whom… And no reason giving for the longest night happening. It’s like watching a movie but have to leave before the end.. love the show and in need of a second season or a conclusion
