Netflix’s latest international import from Belgium has already been renewed for a second season. Here’s what you need to know about season 2 of Undercover.
First of all, we want to drive the distinction of what series we’re talking about. After all, Netflix actually has three titles in its library named Undercover. We’re covering the Dutch title from Belgium that first arrived on Netflix on May 3rd.
The series is primarily aired by Eén which is a Belgium broadcaster.
Although the series is a Netflix Original there’s plenty of caveats. As Netflix’s distribution description explains by saying it’s available everywhere as of May 3rd but with a “subsequent launch in France, Germany, Belgium, Austria and Switzerland.” We still don’t know when season 1 of Undercover will be available in the other countries listed above.
The first season of the show received rave reviews in its home country as well as from Netflixers around the world.
Has Undercover been renewed for season 2?
Official renewal status: Renewed but not officially confirmed by Netflix (Last updated: 06/16/2019)
Despite not having an official confirmation of season 2, its been confirmed by multiple sources that filming on the second season has already begun.
Indeed, the Belgium TV station behind the airing of the show has also confirmed that season 2 is on the way. Filming began on season 2 back in April 2019.
What to expect from season 2 of Undercover?
Supposedly, the second season will continue the story but have a bigger focus on guns whereas season 1 predominantly focused on the drug trade in Belgium.
Tom Waes has confirmed to be returning for season 2 as his role as Bob Lemmens who is meeting up with Kim once again.
The showrunner, Nico Moolenaar has said the follow (roughly translated) regarding season 2:
“In season two, Bob and Kim go into the world of the illegal arms trade. Like XTC, weapons and weapons are an important export product for Belgium. Our small country is a major player in the international arms trade, with annual sales of around 500 billion worldwide One of the most notorious arms smugglers ever used Ostend airport as a base, and a Belgian played a dubious role in dozens of conflicts in Iran, Bosnia, Libya and Pakistan, among others. an inconspicuous existence, and where do you find such an existence better than under the Flemish church tower? That our country is at the center of so much organized crime is of course a serious problem, but for us as scriptwriters also a bit of a gift. Season two again promises to guarantee a lot of excitement, emotion and humor.”
When will season 2 of Undercover be on Netflix?
The series, given the quick renewal, will likely come to Netflix in 2020.
It’s also clear 2020 makes the most sense given that filming is due to conclude in September 2019.
