Luna Nera Season 1 landed on Netflix on January 31st, 2020, and people are already looking forward to Season 2.
However, people aren’t sure when Luna Nera Season 2 will be released on Netflix.
Just in case you haven’t heard of this new Netflix series, it’s an Italian show about witches.
The show follows a young woman called Ade who finds out she a witch, and then her life is turned upside down.
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.
I say it’s about witches, but these aren’t scary witches we often see in horror movies.
In the show, the witches are trying to help people and live their lives.
Luna Nera Season 2 hasn’t been greenlit yet
Yet, they are the victims of persecution as the people living in the nearby town do everything they can to capture and kill all of them.
The show is set in the 1600s when persecution of women under the guise they were witches was commonplace.
It was basically a time when men call women they were afraid of witches and have them burnt alive.
As of yet, there is no official release date for Luna Nera Season 2.
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.
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.
Could Netflix have a real winner on their hands?
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 honestly think given what they had to work with, Luna Nera is a gem of a series and deserves a Season 2.
Even though it was in Italian, I was able to follow Luna Nera Season 1’s story much better than that of The Witcher.
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 recently.

The streaming giants have made the likes of Dark, Ragnarok, La Casa De Papel (Money Heist in English) and The Rain.
Given Luna Nera’s popularity in and outside of Italy, Netflix might be convinced to get the second season out as soon as possible.
