Can we expect to see a second season of Behind Her Eyes on Netflix?

At the time of writing the only source material available for Behind Her Eyes is the novel on which the series is based by author Sarah Pinborough.

Naturally, when a series is adapted to television and is popular enough it can take on a life of its own and exceed the current source material.

The biggest obstacle in the way of a second season is the fact that Behind Her Eyes has been listed as a miniseries. This means only one season of Behind Her Eyes is expected.

It’s rare for any limited or miniseries to receive a second season. One of the most popular Originals of 2020, The Queen’s Gambit, is a limited series, and despite its overwhelming success a second season hasn’t been ordered.
