Absolute Beginners Season 2: Is It Officially Renewed?
Polish teen drama Absolute Beginners debuted in October 2023 and soon made huge headlines. There’s no doubt that the series has been receiving huge appreciation from the audience as well as critics. In fact, the drama has been making waves for portraying the autism spectrum. With such a fantastic performance and storytelling, the show has exceeded the coming-of-age-esque standards. While the series has amazed the global audience, Absolute Beginners Season 2 stands uncertain. This is because Netflix hasn’t yet officially renewed the series for the next season.
However, some sources claim the series has already been renewed for another season. According to them, the series was announced as a two-part series. The first part has already been aired on the platform, leaving room for the next part. But the series’ official page doesn’t provide such information regarding Absolute Beginners Season 2. In fact, the streaming platform hasn’t yet mentioned Polish drama on any of its social media pages. Thus, it remains unclear whether the streaming giant has officially renewed the series.
But there’s no doubt that the series did incredibly well in terms of cinematography and narration. It has beautifully portrayed the trouble between the teens and how they deal with it. In fact, the series has gained 7.2 stars out of 10 on IMDb, marking one of the highest reception for Polish drama. Thus, there’s a chance that Netflix will soon make an official announcement. Again, at this moment, there’s no confirmed news on whether Absolute Beginners Season 2 is happening.
Chances Of Absolute Beginners Season 2!
As of now, there’s no official announcement regarding Absolute Beginners Season 2. Well, the streaming giant generally takes a few months to announce its decision. But when it comes to the Polish drama, it has wrapped up the characters’ arc. The series has a proper beginning, middle, and end. That means the show has reached a natural conclusion. According to IMDb, Polish drama is a mini-series. So, it hinders the chances of its return. But nothing is confirmed yet. This is because some source suggests the series on the cards. So, it may return to the streaming platform.
Absolute Beginners Season 2: What Might Have Happened In The Next Season?
The series is a rollercoaster ride. It has seen a lot throughout the season. Niko and Lena, who have autism, decided to work on a film project. While Lena’s story was all about intense love, Niko felt awkward shooting some intimate scenes with her. It later revealed that he didn’t feel the way she did. However, their story took a new turn when Igor entered the picture. He was determined to join the national basketball team. While he had high hopes, his fate was in the dark as he drowned to death. But fortunately, Niko spotted him and saved his life. Lena then recorded the entire CPR scene and decided to introduce Igor to their movie.
Initially, he hesitated to join them. But later, he began a part of a love triangle. While everything went smoothly, Niko and Ignore realized they had feelings for each other. As the series progressed, it witnessed some epic love scenes between them. In fact, Igor decided to stay true to his feelings and ditched his chance to enter the national basketball team for Niko. The latter did the same for his love. Meanwhile, Lena faced some challenges. She wanted to keep Niko and Igor’s sex scene in her movie. But the latter wasn’t comfortable with that.
It led to a bickering moment where Lena decided to walk away. She then started living with her mom while grappling with her thoughts about using that scene. In the closing moments, she decided to cut those scenes from her movie and eventually enrolled in her dream school. With such a narrative, the chances of Absolute Beginners Season 2 are slim. However, if it returns, it will explore the trio’s lives and whether they are still together. It may also shed light on Igor and Niko’s relationship and how they deal with the forthcoming challenges.
