The second season of Netflix’s new comedy series Blockbuster has been purposefully left open, but will it happen? Here is all the information we currently have regarding Blockubser’s upcoming second season on Netflix, including how season 1 did commercially, what the cast and crew have said, and what we anticipate. Randall Park, Melissa Fumero, Olga Merediz, and Tyler Alvarez all contribute to this new workplace comedy, which was created by Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Superstore creator Vanessa Ramos. On November 3rd, 2022, it debuted on Netflix with 10 episodes to mixed reviews; it currently has a 5.1 rating on IMDb and a 23% approval rating on RottenTomatoes. In a Tweet to Netflix co-founder Marc Randolph, co-CEO Reed Hastings gave the series his enthusiastic endorsement. Will we, however, be returning to the final Netflix Blockbuster location? What we do know is this:
Blockbuster has Netflix renewed or cancelled?
There has been no decision on the show’s future, but early performance data suggests that getting a renewal may be difficult. As previously stated, Netflix will consider a variety of factors when deciding whether to renew a show, and one important number for a show of this size will be how many people complete the series. We should note at this point that Netflix has had a difficult time renewing comedy series recently, particularly freshman English language comedies. This is supported by the fact that, with the exception of The Upshaws, Netflix has not renewed a single freshman (first season) or comedy show since May 2021. Hard Cell, The Pentaverate, God’s Favorite Idiot, Uncoupled, Mo, Chad, and JT Go Deep are among the titles up for renewal, while Pretty Smart has been cancelled. Vanessa Ramos expressed her desire for more episodes in an interview with THR, adding that if they are renewed, she plans to visit the last Blockbuster store in Bend. Ramos told DigitalSpy shortly after the show’s premiere that they’re “waiting to hear back from Netflix,” and she doesn’t want to get too excited about anything just yet.
How does Blockbuster fare on Netflix?
Blockbuster’s performance thus far hasn’t been as strong as Netflix would have anticipated. The fact that the show has not yet appeared on the official Netflix top 10 website and missed the title in Blockbuster’s first week indicates that fewer than 20.30M global hours have been spent watching it. We must therefore look a little more closely in order to examine performance. The programme appeared in the top 10 Netflix lists in 13 of the 90 nations that FlixPatrol monitors. According to their data, the show reached its peak on day two after its launch, ranking as the 21st most popular series on Netflix. It is currently the 29th most watched series as of November 10.
The title reached at number 8 on the Netflix top 10s in the US, where performance ought to be the best. What about outside statistics? On that front, things don’t appear to be very promising either. According to data from sources like Google, Wikipedia, Torrents, and IMDb, TelevisionStats.com reports that the show reached its peak on November 4th. According to outside data as of November 10th, the show is the 55th most popular overall title and the 13th most popular series.
What to Expect from Netflix’s Blockbuster Season 2
Recap: Episode 10 concludes with a holiday-themed special, and the crew starts the episode by decorating the shop. However, disaster hits when clients loot the shop and Timmy is on the verge of giving up. Hannah watches the video of Aaron’s aborted proposal in the series finale and learns that Eliza does have feelings for Timmy. If a second season is announced, we can anticipate similar plot developments to the first one, including the gang’s desperate attempts to pay the bills, their jabs at Netflix, and the emergence of relationships among all the main characters.
