Luna Nera Season 2 Release Date – Will Netflix Greenlight The Second Season?

WARNING: Spoilers for Luna Nera Season 1 in this article.

Luna Nera Season 1 has been aired on Netflix and people are already wondering when Season 2’s release date will be.

The show has proven to be something of a hit over in Italy, which is to be expected, but I’ve noticed that people over here and in the US have taken the show to heart.

It seems as if people are really craving fantastical shows with witches, and Luna Nera ticks a lot of those boxes.

The show isn’t the most well-made show I’ve ever seen, and the acting is pretty wooden.

However, there’s something about it which makes you want to keep on watching.

Perhaps the fact that it’s in Italian saves it a bit because you don’t realise how wooden the actors’ delivery is.

Yet, even with my limited Italian, I was able to hear the rather disjointed delivery in certain scenes.

That said, I wanted to finish Season 1, and I’m already trying to figure out whether Netflix has greenlit the second season.

As I write this article, Netflix has not greenlit a second season, which isn’t great news.

That tends to mean that it won’t happen, or that Netflix is waiting to see how well the show performs on their streaming platform.

Only Netflix has access to their streaming numbers and they only reveal then when it’s good news.

The show follows a young woman called Ade who finds out she a witch, and then her life is turned upside down.

It’s set in Italy in the 1600s, during a time when women were accused of being witches and burnt alive.

Ade has to do everything she can to ensure she and her brother are not found by the locals and killed.

She ends up being hidden and looked after by her mother’s old friends in the woods, who also happen to be witches.

Luna Nera Season 1 was directed by three female directors who are pretty well known and revered in Italy.

Francesca Comencini, Susanna Nicchiarelli and Paola Randi shared directing duties on Season 1.

Francesca Manieri, Laura Paolucci and Tiziana Triana were the show’s creators.

Incendatlly, the show was based on a series of books by Triana.

Luna Nera is only Netflix’s third Italian-based original drama, following Suburra and Baby.

The first season received mostly positive reviews, yet critics did point at Luna Nera’s poor acting and wooden dialogue.

However, Luna Nera Season 1 was made on a shoestring budget, so it really should be applauded for how well it turned out.

I mentioned this in a previous article, but I honestly think given what they had to work with, Luna Nera is a much better show than The Witcher Season 1 turned out to be.

Even though it was in Italian, I was able to follow Luna Nera Season 1’s story much better than that of The Witcher Season 1.

As for Luna Nera’s Season 2’s release date, I’m pretty sure that Netflix will greenlight it and it’ll most likely be out in January 2021 or later.

Netflix has been investing heavily in international content.

Given this show’s popularity in and outside of Italy, the streaming giants might be convinced to get the second season out as soon as possible.

    Yeah it’s awesome, I hope they do make a second season. I’d say if the budget isn’t too large then that’s a very good sign.

    Je souhaiterai que la saison 2 de luna nera sorte en 2020 car je suis presser de voir la suite et j’espère qu’il y aura plein d’autre saison qui suit.

    I am hooked on this show and sad there’s not another season!! I haven’t binged watched a show that’s kept me up late at night in a loooooong time, but this one had me wanting more. I dont understand what it means to have wooden dialogue, other than the subtitles not matching up, but I didn’t care. I loved the story and was pleasantly surprised by my obsession by it early on. I havent seen The Witcher, but my sister raves about that show. And I couldn’t help but rave about this one. Cant wait to compare both! I really, really hope they get a chance to do a second season! And maybe 3, 4 and more! I’m dying to know if Ada will become a wicked witch!

Have your say...
