Will there be another season of Safe on Netflix?
Netflix hasn’t yet made any announcements about a season two.
Safe only dropped on the streaming platform on May, 10 and hopes of any news about another run might be a bit premature at this stage.
However, actress Amy-Leigh Hickman exclusively told Express.co.uk that there was “potential” for a follow up.
The star, who plays teenager Sia in the drama, shared her thoughts about a possible season two, saying: “I don’t know. I think there’s always potential for a second series but this story is very much its own story in its own right. But who knows, if people enjoy this.”
She reflected on the ending, explaining: “It does ties up but you can always tell more stories and these characters are great and there’s always more stories to tell.”
Meanwhile, creator Harlan Coben said in a recent interview: “I don’t rule out a season two, but I’m not selling season two by not giving you the answers to season one.”
He went on to tell Digital Spy: “I don’t think it would be fair to start a series where there’s a murder, and a girl goes missing, and this whole community clearly is blowing up with secrets… and then not give you all the answers.”
Cohen added: “That’s not how I do series. It’s fine for other people, but it’s just not how I work. If there’s a season two… well, I would doubt it.”
When will Safe season 2 be released on Netflix?
The most recent run came out in May, so depending on if and when the show is recommissioned it could be as soon as spring 2019.
However, it could be later than that depending on the schedules of Coben and writer Danny Brocklehurst, who penned the script.
Safe was the second collaboration between Coben and the Ordinary Lies writer, who first paired up for Sky One’s thriller The Five in 2016.
The duo are working on a follow up called The Four, which could come out before a second season of Safe.
But again, the release date would depend on the other work commitments of both the cast and the crew.
If Safe does get recommissioned for a season two then it’s likely to consist of eight episodes like the first run.
What will happen in Safe season 2?
Season one focused on paediatrician surgeon Tom Delaney (played by Michael C. Hall), who embarks on a dangerous quest for the truth when his eldest daughter Jenny (Amy James-Kelly) goes missing.
The story followed widower Tom as he tried to investigate what had happened to Jenny and who out of his friends could have been responsible for her disappearance.
Tom was pushed to the limit as he was left losing trust in his closest friends and family.
Not only did secrets come out about the affluent, close-knit community, the circumstances surrounding the death of Tom’s wife finally came to light.
Season one was set in an affluent gated community in Britain and it seems likely that a second outing would return to the setting.
The plot could see the focus turn to another member of the neighbourhood and their secrets.
