This article speculates about the possibility of The Perfect Mother Season 2 and may contain some minor spoilers for the first season. You can check out our spoiler-free season review by clicking these words.


The Perfect Mother is a new four-part French thriller that finds a seemingly doting mother faced with the possibility that her daughter was involved in a murder. It’s a lightning-fast, twisty-turny whodunit, and a pretty ideal bite-sized binge-watch for genre fans.

But what are the chances of those fans seeing a second season? Here’s everything we know:

Renewed or Cancelled status – Will we see The Perfect Mother Season 2?

Status: TBC

While there hasn’t been any official confirmation either way, I think in this particular case I’m leaning more towards a cancellation.

That isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The Perfect Mother is one of the few shows that was content to get in, tell its story, and get out again without overstaying its welcome. The finale wraps things up in a pretty conclusive way, and while there is some ambiguity around where the characters may go, that’s probably best left open to interpretation.

Directed by Fred Garson from scripts written by Carol Noble and Thomas Boulle, the show is an adaptation of the same-named novel by Nina Darnton, who never wrote a follow-up. With Netflix billing this as a limited series, it’s likely we’ve seen the last of it.

What is The Perfect Mother?

Helene is a mother with a perfect life – a stable if joyless marriage to the well-to-do Matthias, and two children, Anya and Lukas, who seemingly want for nothing. But when Anya is implicated in the murder of a young man who is the heir to a vast fortune, everything she thinks she knows about her daughter – and indeed herself – is thrown into question. Teaming up with an old flame cop-turned-lawyer named Vincent, Helene begins looking into Anya’s case and uncovers much more than she bargained for.

You can stream The Perfect Mother exclusively on Netflix.
