This article discusses whether there will be a season 2 of the South African Netflix series Savage Beauty and its renewed or cancelled status.

On May 12, 2022, Savage Beauty brought an enticing story of slow, patient revenge against a powerful family empire. Netflix has placed a lot of investment into African series as of late (Blood & Water and Queen Sono, to name a few), and it appears that Savage Beauty is another gem.

The story follows Zinhle (played by Rosemary Zimu), who is determined to bring down the Bhengu family, who runs a powerful, global beauty empire. The powerful family maintains significant wealth but also holds dark secrets. Don and Grace Bhengu (the patriarch and matriarch of the family) once used to test their toxic beauty products on street children. Zinhle is one of the survivors, and what follows is an intriguing revenge drama that is hard to put down. A story involving corporate manslaughter makes sure to grip audiences from the start.

At Ready Steady Cut, we gave season 1 a favorable review:

“This series holds enough for applaudable performances, well-thought-out writing, and a real thirst for patient revenge.”

Will there be a season 2 of Netflix’s Savage Beauty – renewed or cancelled status

Status: TBC/not yet renewed.

At present, there’s no confirmation by any of the cast or crew or Netflix of a season 2 of Savage Beauty. However, it is not early days, and Netflix tends to wait for a public reception and watch hours before making a hasty decision. We expect there to be confirmation of a second season in the next two months as the data pulls through on the viewership.

We wouldn’t be surprised if the series is renewed. There’s rising popularity of African stories on Netflix, and this seems to be another compelling and dramatic story that will keep audiences engaged. As always, at Ready Steady Cut, we will keep you updated on any news.

You can watch this series with a subscription to Netflix.

    It was very interesting to watch, very minimum violence, but you must watch every episode to follow the drama line.

    Hope there will be additional seasons in the very near future.
