After its first season, Class has been renewed for a second season by Netflix. The show has won over audiences worldwide and now fans are eagerly waiting for the return of the drama.
The show follows three working-class students who earn scholarships to one of the most prestigious schools in India. However, excitement soon turns to dread when they are caught up in a web of class warfare and secrets.
1. Stranger Things
The ’80s throwback sci-fi series Stranger Things has been an unqualified success for Netflix, earning critical approval and becoming a social media sensation. It is now the highest rated original program in the streaming service’s history.
The show’s first season premiered in July 2016 and racked up an impressive Metacritic score of 88. It has since been renewed for a second season.
Streaming data has revealed that viewers watched an incredible 52 billion minutes of Stranger Things last year, making it the best-performing English series on the platform in 2022. That’s almost double the total number of minutes viewed by NBC’s The Office, which enjoyed a similar run in 2020.
Writing for the next season began in August 2022, according to a tweet from the official Stranger Things writers’ room. And it’s likely that production will begin in May, as actor Noah Schnapp recently confirmed. It looks like we’ll be in for an even more thrilling and bizarre ride this fall.
2. Peaky Blinders
After Peaky Blinders Season 1 did so well on streaming charts, it’s no surprise that the series is renewed for a second season. It’s likely that this comes as a result of its success and the show’s strong fan base.
The fifth season of Peaky Blinders, which will premiere on Netflix on October 4, follows the rise of leader Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) from backstreet crime lord to legitimate businessman and member of parliament. It also explores the notions that violence destroys lives, empires rise and fall over time, and class divisions are corrosive.
This season, Tommy and his family are faced with a number of challenges as they deal with the growth of Mosley’s fascist party in Britain, as well as plots from the Irish Mob and Anti-Treaty IRA. But he must also confront the demons within his own mind. That, in turn, may lead him to re-evaluate his future. And he will have to decide whether he can escape the life that he has been born into.
3. Squid Game
Squid Game, Netflix’s breakout hit of 2021, has been renewed for a second season. Co-CEO and chief content officer Ted Sarandos affirmed the news in an earnings interview this week.
The show’s addictive twist on classic Korean children’s games has quickly dominated the streaming charts, bringing in over 2.1 billion hours watched in its first 28 days. The series’ high-stakes twist on childhood games is a big draw, and viewers are eager to see who survives the next twisted challenge.
In the end, the series’ winner, Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung Jae), escaped with a few million dollars in the bank, but his victory comes at a cost. He and his friends are forced to compete in a new round of twisted childhood games, with more money on the line.
4. My Hero Academia
My Hero Academia is one of the most popular anime series around. The show is based on the manga of the same name and has become a hit all over the world. It has won many awards and is very popular.
Its popularity was confirmed when it was renewed for a second season. This is a very rare thing in the industry as most anime are not renewed. However, My Hero Academia was able to get the approval.
The class of Heroes is still working towards a goal of a better future for the superhuman community. They continue to fight villains and battle to change their society.
They also work together to help others who need assistance. But when a new villain group rises, they may face their biggest challenge yet.
This week, My Hero Academia was ranked number two on LiveChart, behind Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai and Chainsaw Man. Its streaming ratings are surprisingly strong, especially considering the fact that it’s a teen-oriented drama.
