This article discusses whether there will be season 2 of the Kenyan Netflix original series Country Queen and its renewed or cancelled status.

Read the season 1 review of Country Queen.

Being the first ever Kenyan Netflix original series places a lot of pressure on the production team. The most viewed streaming service representing a nation for the first time must come with a lot of nail-biting. On July 15, 2022, Country Queen arrived, and it had plenty of promise.

What is the premise of Country Queen? 

The lead character Akisa harbors two lives. One life where she masks, another where she has to face past trauma. Embroiled in all this is a tale of two worlds where an invasive mining company threatens the livelihood of a village. Akisa has the difficult task of finding herself in the face of a painful past while saving the village from corrupt capitalism. An unforgiving story with plenty of pain and consequences. This is not a faint-hearted story by any means. It’s coated in anguish and a sobering outlook on life.

At Ready Steady Cut, we gave the series a favorable review — “The tagline for Country Queen, “when home is a battlefield,” sums up the series marvelously.”

Will there be a season 2 of the Netflix series Country Queen – renewed or cancelled status

Status: TBC/ Not renewed

At this time, Country Queen has not been renewed for a second season, but it’s too early to speculate, especially with Netflix releasing a Kenyan original for the first time. With Netflix remodeling their business on release slates, it would not be surprising if we heard some news relatively soon on the status of this series (possibly in a month).

It’s also possible that Netflix has already invested in Kenyan original series, so a renewal is in the pipeline regardless of watch hours. Netflix tends to look out for watch hours, but this may be different on this occasion. As always, we’ll look out for news, and we’ll keep you up to date here at Ready Steady Cut.
