Sex sells and there’s no mistaking that. It’s hard to deny that some of the most popular titles on Netflix centre around sex and relationships. Recently one such title falling into this category is British drama Wanderlust starring the phenomenal Toni Collette. With a great first season, fans have been asking for when a second season is coming. So here’s everything we know about the Netflix renewal and release date of Wanderlust season 2.
Wanderlust is a British drama series co-produced by Netflix and the BBC. The series was created by famous British playwright Nick Payne to which Wanderlust was originally a play prior to its adaptation as a series. The series is an in-depth and dramatized look into relationships and the concept of lifelong monogamy and whether or not a lifelong partnership is still desirable.
After a cycling accident causes their sex life to be put on hold, therapist Toni tried to reignite the spark of marriage with her husband Alan. The lack of spark and sex causes the married could to reassess their marriage as they soon find themselves drawn to other people.
Wanderlust Season 2 Renewal Status
Official Renewal Status: Pending (Last Updated 01/22/2019)
At the time of writing Wanderlust is one of the latest Netflix and BBC co-productions on Netflix (the latest being Watership Down). Like other Co-productions, Wanderlust was produced in the United Kingdom by the BBC and aired on British television before arriving on Netflix. While the series is still pending for renewal it will ultimately be between Netflix and the BBC if they wish to continue the series further.
If we go by other BBC titles such as Requiem and Troy: Fall of a City then renewal of Wanderlust may take a significant amount of time.
It’s worth noting that Wanderlust was adapted from the screenplay of the same name. If the show is to continue then creator and writer Nick Payne would need to be on board. While replacing him is a viable option but without his writing, the show would not be the same.
How have fans taken to Wanderlust?
Wanderlust has definitely been popular amongst fans since its release. There have been some excellent British series release on Netflix over the past year and Wanderlust is just one of many.

When will season 2 of Wanderlust be on Netflix?
If we go by the previous season filming began in November 2017 and post-production began in March 2018. Wanderlust aired on British TV that September therefore if we go by the production of the first season filming add roughly 10 months and that should be our release date. So if filming was to begin September 2019 then we could expect a July 2020 release date. This of course entirely depends on Wanderlust’s renewal.
