The simplest of gestures can have the greatest impact at times. At the beginning of Beef, the new dark comedic ride from Netflix and A24, we meet Danny (Steven Yeun) as he is returning several Hibachi grills to a hardware store (grills that were bought with the intent of being used to end his own life).
As a result, he felt compelled to engage in a wrath-fueled car pursuit, which quickly escalated into a road rage incident that alarmed the neighbors.
He had no idea who the other driver was who had flipped him off and kept up with him the whole time. But when we met Amy, that changed (Ali Wong). And in seeing Amy after meeting Danny, we get the actual set-up and tension of Beef: two individuals from very different ways of life (Danny is a working-class handyman; Amy is an affluent/soon-to-be uber-wealthy artist) who, at their core, have the same problem. They just can’t let go of their pride. They have to succeed. They must achieve victory.
Beef is a 10-episode series that features some of the best music from the ’90s and ’00s, and takes viewers on a tense rollercoaster filled with wrath, retribution, laughter, drama, and introspection. Are pumpkins being smashed? Please do so. Who is this Tori Amos person? Yup.
You’ll be glad you stuck with Danny and Amy through all their trials by the series’ end. Will there be additional beef supplies?

The possible future directions of Beef are as follows.
Will Beef Return For A Second Season?
No renewal announcement from Netflix has been made as of this writing. Lee, however, intended for it to be a collection of short stories. It would be sad to see Danny and Amy (played by Yeun and Wong) part ways, but you never know what the future holds.
“Cards on the table, we did pitch this show as a limited anthology, so there is sort of a close-ended-ness to the story [of Danny and Amy],” Lee tells ELLE.com. “But, if given the opportunity, of course, I’d love to explore them further, because Danny and Amy, I love those characters. But yeah, by design, though, this a close-ended narrative.”
Who Is Cast In The Second Season Of Beef?
Marvel’s Thunderbolts will include the return of Steven Yeun, Lee Sung Jin, and Jake Schreier. Fans of Beef and the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be pleased to hear that three of the show’s main stars will be returning for Thunderbolts, which is scheduled to be released in theaters in July 2024.
Last year, it was announced that Jake Schreier, who helmed six of Beef’s ten episodes, would be directing Thunderbolts, and only last month, it was confirmed that Steven Yeun would be joining the cast. A week and a half before Beef was released, it was revealed that Lee Sung Jin had taken over authoring the script.
That is to say, beef fans have something to look forward to, while Marvel fans should rejoice because Thunderbolts—a film about a team-up of the universe’s anti-heroes—is in capable hands.

What Would The Second Season Be About?
When asked whether an anthology series would explore other characters, beef, or emotions, Lee elaborates, “Yeah, that was the initial pitch. I think in my 45-minute PowerPoint there were multiple other kinds of beef and other character types to explore.” He adds, “We’ll see.”
For the March 31 red carpet premiere of Beef, Lee provided a similar response to The Hollywood Reporter. “Fingers crossed. I hope people love the show and we get to make more,” he said at the time.
