Renewed or Cancelled – will there be a season 2 of Rebelde?
This article discusses whether there will be season 2 of the Netflix series Rebelde and its renewed or cancelled status.
Netflix embraces teen drama to the point that it ramps up a fanbase to later disappoint them as they reveal another cancellation. But it’s no surprise with teen dramas. A series in this genre will either trend with its demographic or die out like a popped balloon. There is no in-between in the teen drama world. Netflix’s Rebelde is a 2004 remake; a series announced at the TODUM event and will have riled up original fans and gauged the interest of new ones.
The story is a high school drama with a musical edge, as a group of teenagers band together to create a band in adverse conditions. They have a group of masked students terrorizing them emotionally and physically, encouraging them to fail. The group of masked bullies are called “The Lodge.”
Season 1 was released on January 5, 2022. The first season’s official trailer racked up over 700k views, which is impressive.
Will there be a season 2 of Netflix’s Rebelde – renewed or cancelled status
Unfortunately, there’s been no indication on whether the remake will be renewed for a second season, but we can speculate on the likelihood.
Firstly, the original lasted more than one season, which means that the creators of the remake will have continuity in mind. After all, it’s a similar story, so if it draws the fans, Netflix will be tempted to continue tapping into this drama.
Secondly, there’s no denying that Rebelde may have a similar impact as the other Spanish-language teen drama Elite. Comparisons will be drawn almost immediately, with the high schoolers donning similar attire, and the storylines are designed to be dramatic and appealing to the demographic.
We highly doubt reviews will have an impact on Netflix’s decision. At Ready Steady Cut, we gave Rebelde season 1 an unfavorable review. However, that never tends to be the decider in the Netflix boardroom. This will purely be down to watch hours.
While we can’t give a definitive answer yet, we predict that Rebelde will be around for a season 2. With interest building before release, we can assume there will be a decent audience size. We could be wrong, so do not take this as gospel.
