If you’re to look at Jupiter’s Legacy’s analytics, it’s pretty impressive, especially for a new show on Netflix.
Given the fact that the show only came out on May 7th, it’s pretty impressive that it ended up coming in third place on Netflix’s top ten TV shows list for May.
It ended up coming behind Sexify and El Inocente, which were hugely popular on the streaming service.
Jupiter’s Legacy was the first in many upcoming Millarworld projects on Netflix.
Millarworld is the universe of comic books that were written by Mark Millar.
He struck a deal with Netflix a while back and they’re now making a bunch of TV shows and movies based on his IPs.
Jupiter’s Legacy is the first of these projects, and it’s been quite well-received overall.

Is Netflix working on Jupiter’s Legacy Season 2?
So, let’s get onto Jupiter’s Legacy Season 2 and whether it’s happening or not.
Well, I can tell you that Season 2 still hasn’t been officially announced by Netflix.
However, that doesn’t mean it’s not happening.
Netflix tends to wait until the very last second before they announce the next season of a show.
Therefore, with this in mind, we might have to wait for an official announcement from Netflix regarding Jupiter’s Legacy Season 2.
There has been some talk that they might not want to continue with the show.
Why, you ask? Well, it has to do with the rather lukewarm reception the first season of the show got from critics.
That said, it’s been popular with Netflix’s users and they’ve been tuning in to watch the show.
When could Jupiter’s Legacy Season 2’s release date be?
So, with all this in mind, when could we end up seeing Jupiter Legacy Season 2?
Well, it all depends on when the show goes into production for Season 2.
If they end up starting shooting this summer, then you could expect to see Season 2 turn up sometime in the summer of 2022.
These Netflix shows tend to take about 10 to 12 months to make.
However, sometimes Netflix has managed to get shows made faster than that.
It also depends on whether COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted or not.
OK, so my best guess is that Jupiter’s Legacy Season 2 will be released in June 2022.
