Beef, Netflix’s new acclaimed comedy-drama, came out on Friday, and a lot of people have already watched it all in one sitting (and immediately gone on social media to gush).
Lee Sung-jin made the eight-episode series, which is about a contractor named Danny Cho (Steven Yeun) and an entrepreneur named Amy Lau (Ali Wong) who seem to be doing well on the outside but become obsessed with each other after a road rage incident.
As their small jokes turn into serious crimes, the feud between the two of them takes over both of their lives, affecting everyone they care about.
Beef is the kind of exciting show that’s easy to watch all in one sitting. The ride is both tense and emotional, with dark comedy and tension building on par with Uncut Gems. Fans are wondering where the show could go next after that crazy ending. What we know so far about a possible second season is in the next section.

Will There Be Beef Netflix Season 2?
Netflix hasn’t said whether or not it will renew the show yet, but the show’s creator, Lee Sung-jin, already has ideas for how it could go on. During Beef’s LA premiere, the showrunner told The Hollywood Reporter that the show was first pitched as an anthology, like The White Lotus.
He explained, “When we pitched the show, we actually pitched it as a limited anthology series,” “Fingers crossed. I hope people love the show and we get to make more.”
“I hope so. Tell your friends!” Yeun added.
When Is Beef Netflix Season 2 Coming Out?
Netflix usually waits to see how well its shows do before deciding whether or not to make more seasons, so we’ll be watching for news over the next few weeks (or months).

What To Expect From Beef Netflix Season 2?
By the end of the first season, Danny and Amy’s story has pretty much come to an end. If the show keeps going as a collection of short stories, we would have to say goodbye to Yeun and Wong, but plans can always change. In an interview with ELLE, Lee said that his first pitch for the show had “a lot of other fights and different types of characters to explore.”
“Let’s be honest, we did pitch this show as a limited anthology,” he said. “So the story of Danny and Amy is kind of over.” “But if I had the chance, I would love to learn more about Danny and Amy, because I love those characters. But yeah, this is a story that is meant to end here.”
We hope to hear about a renewal soon, whether it means seeing Danny and Amy again or going on a new emotional roller coaster.
