Official Renewal Status: Renewed (Last Updated: 29/02/2024)

The renewal for the second season of Beef has been confirmed! On February 26th, the news broke that Beef creator Lee Sung Jin was eyeing up the cast for the second season.

Given how well Beef was praised by audiences and critics and rewarded with eight Primetime Emmys, including the Outstand Limited Series or Anthology Series award, it’s no surprise that Netflix has greenlit a new season.

Backstage at the Emmys, Lee Jung Sin hinted at the future of Beef on Netflix;

“I feel like there are so many paths. It could stay limited, it was a very close-ended story for sure. But if Netflix wanted to continue, it could also be an anthology. It could be many things. It’s up to the great algorithm. We’re all waiting to hear.”
