The Hockey Girls is one of the latest Spanish TV show pickups and has scored well with critics and look like it was a success in its origin country. Here’s what we know about whether a second season is in order and when it could be on Netflix?
The sports drama series is about a group of girls competing in roller hockey and about the team dynamic on and off the pitch. It arrived on Netflix in the majority of regions on September 20th, 2019.
The series comes to Netflix as one of many the streaming service has picked up from the region. If I Hadn’t Met You and Welcome to the Family are other Netflix Originals broadcasted first from Catalan.
Has The Hockey Girls been renewed for season 2?
Netflix Renewal Status: Not yet renewed
Although there were no indications on the show’s future, some more insights on the creation of the show can be found in this interview. They spoke about Netflix’s involvement in giving the show a second life. It also spoke about the show being one of the biggest ratings drivers for the Spanish network TV3.
As Tweeted by the show’s official account, it carried an 11.2% share with around 241,000 viewers on live TV.
In another interview with Lavanguardia.com, the creators apparently expressed to them that they already have ideas on the future of the show. Here’s what the article says (loosely translated from Spanish):
“The greatest success for us is that, beyond having good audiences, we have reached the audience we wanted,” say the scriptwriters, who already have a few more ideas in mind, in addition to a hypothetical second season of Les de l ‘ Hoquei, still to be confirmed.
Because Netflix simply carries the show rather than produces it, it’ll be almost entirely down to TV3 in Spain to pick up the show for a second outing. With that said, Netflix has picked up a few Spanish shows that have first broadcasted in Spain before becoming full-fledged Netflix Originals.
When will season 2 of The Hockey Girls be on Netflix?
Assuming the series does get renewed, which seems like a 50/50 bet at the moment, the series could return in the next few years. Once again, it’d likely air in Spain first before being added to Netflix.
