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. I’m really getting tired of Netflix airing series that get canceled and you wasted hours or a day for absolutely nothing. You get invested in something and the it’s really disappointing

  2. I agree with what has been said. We need a season 2.
    I have considered dropping Netflex, this is the kind practice that might send me over the edge. It is pointless to not finish it. This is why people are leaving. Sorry business practice.

  3. This is so wrong to air a show, get us all invested in the story, leave huge cliffhangers, and then leave us hanging with no answers by not bringing it back for season 2! DON’T do this to your viewer’s Netflix! All this does is make us not trust and walk we away! Horrible business practice! Get a clue and do better! Treat your customers right!!!! BRING (THE LONGEST NIGHT) BACK AND GIVE US ARE ANSWERS!!!! We don’t pay you to screw us over!

  4. I think they should end it. I don’t like when they have a limited ending in nothingness. This isn’t worth investing more hours never knowing what’s going to happen. It is too vague; just a lot of action with never ending conclusions. I won’t be watching it again , even if Netflix agrees to another season. this is turned out to be a snooze fest; a waste of my time.

  5. Netflix needs to stop running these series like the longest night if they cant finish them. This happens with so many of Netflix shows just going to stop watching Them at all.

  6. I have invested 6 hours in this series, and it was well worth it… really enjoyed it… but I will be really really pissed off if there’s not a second series… just got to know all the characters AND there are far too many unanswered questions to just leave it as it is. Half the stuff on Netflix is rubbish so why when they produce good stuff do they fail to follow it up…???

  7. I agree!! This is awful that you start these series and never finish them!! How the hell can you end this show with a cliffhanger like that!! Netflix has created so many shows mike this!! If this continues I will looks somewhere else to stream!!

  8. I’m so tired of these series not continuing. It’s been many and this show is just another reason to be pissed of! If we are not going to get second seasons then how bout just do limited series and move on.

  9. Why is Season 1 still available to watch if you know there is no Season 2. Netflix has become a ripoff. At least warm the audience that there is no conclusion and left up to your imagination. This is a blatant taunting and abuse of your subscribers. If we spend our time and money to watch something we should at least be given a conclusion. On the verge of cancelling. Abuse and disrespect of your members. If this trend continues you will really lose lot of members including myself. At least a couple episodes or a movie to tie things up. A total waste of time got sick an excellent written and acted show. Pathetic!!!

  10. Please make a 2nd sequel. I really enjoyed this show and kept great suspense and entertainment. I binge watched it and at the end was so disappointed it didn’t continue with more episodes or season. This i could see having another 2 seasons. Great actors and people picked for the parts. Please continue this Netflix! Green light all the way!!!!!

  11. Very unfair for the audience. So many hours invested and no ending. Not fair. Bring the season 2 quickly and finish this.
    For these kinds of series, there should be a warning that story is not finished. I would not have started watching it had i known.

  12. I loved this show I have watched it many times Netflix need to make season 2 not just because of the way season 1 ended .it has everything I liked suspense action a good mystery story like and how most of the characters have a slight connection. Netflix make season 2

  13. Brilliant series but so disappointed at no season 2, would not have watched it I had known it was unfinished 😠

  14. I Loved it I binged watched the whole 6 episodes and definitely kept me thrilled watching it the whole time but I’m Definitely anxious to see what manueala is gonna do knowing espada is alive still n Cherokee lied but she also lied about Emma and also See what happens with Hugo daughter but didn’t see the connection till last episode but i hope they come out with a Season 2 Please 😍😍😍😍🙏🏾😁

  15. I binge watched it over the weekend and loved it but there was no solution .. I need to see a season 2!

  16. I’m a real movie buff. I can predict most plots, mysteries, twists. But the The longest Night has me completely hooked and mystified. I’d love to see this brilliant series get another season. Fascinating story.
    NF you could promote more, I’m sure you could get a swell of viewers and referrals to their friends once they are hooked. Like me.
    Not just another shoot me up thinly veiled show, this has serious quality plot.

  17. They simply have to do another season… so many unanswered questions…. It was brilliant on the edge of my seat for the lady 3 episodes…. Come on NF , don’t leave us hanging

  18. Always happens when i watched something exciting here in netflix, either unfinished or it leaves the viewers hanging… please make sure there’s season 2

  19. How could Netflix not have at least a Season 2 of this show! I was caught off guard by the unfinished ending. Can’t imagine no continuation of this intense, edge-of-your-drama.

  20. How dare you even think of not having a second season?? This was one of the most “ edge of your seat” type of shows in a long time!!! If u didn’t have it all together , why do u tease the viewers???

  21. So so good loved it just can’t wait for next one hopefully soon season 2 because the ending wasn’t good!

  22. I loved season one of The Longest Night. I literally watched all 6 episodes back to back in one sitting waiting to find out why they don’t want Simon to talk to the judge! We need a season 2. It’s too many cliffhangers going on. You got us invested NETFLIX!

  23. Omg I just finished watching and I need to know what happens…Netflix please renew this and if your gonna do this again at least warn us first so we won’t spend hours or days wasting our time binge watching just to be left hanging.I told my kids they needed to watch this after I started getting into it and now I feel guilty cuz their time is also being wasted

  24. You know sometimes I don’t want to know the back story, I just want a decent paced show that deals with the situation at hand. We liked this show and appreciate the lack of constant flash backs to give me their back story. I don’t need character back stories to enjoy a show or appreciate the situation a character is in. Too many shows spend too much time and disrupt the main story continuity with character flashbacks. I am one of those that says give me more like this with very little back story.

  25. I enjoyed the show….I’d really like to see more of the show just to have some closure.Netflix needs to end these shows with proper endings instead of leaving everyone hanging.

  26. Of course it needs a season 2 or enough episodes to tie up all the loose ends hanging! What a joke, all that hard work for what?!

  27. 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.

  28. 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 !

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

  30. 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!!!!

  31. 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.

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

  33. 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 ~~~~

  34. 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.

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

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

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

  38. 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.

  39. 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.

  40. 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

  41. 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!! 🙏♥️🤗

  42. 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 .

  43. 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!!!

  44. 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!!!😉

  45. 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 .

  46. 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.

  47. 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.

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

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

  50. 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.

  51. 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.

  52. 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.

  53. 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.

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

  55. 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.

  56. 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

  57. 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 !!!!

  58. 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!!!

  59. 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.

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

  61. 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
