This article discusses the possibility of Another Self Season 2. It may contain spoilers. 

Another Self is the latest Turkish original series on Netflix, streaming as of July 28, 2022, and consisting of eight episodes running just a shade under an hour. That’s a lot of time for soapy shenanigans to ensue, and there are certainly plenty of those in a relatively tumultuous first season that, somewhat predictably at this point, concludes with almost no relationships or plot threads actually having been concluded.

Naturally, then, fans of the show — and there are sure to be some — will be wondering about the show’s future. Here’s what we know.

Renewed or canceled status – Will there be a Season 2 of Another Self?

Status: TBC

Despite the claims of this website, which don’t seem especially well substantiated to me, there hasn’t been any official word of a second season. If the claims reported there are true then we’re to believe that a second season of the drama is already in the bag, and was indeed filmed to completion before the first season even aired, but it seems like a bit of a gamble for Netflix to commission two seasons without having a sense of how the first one will perform with audiences.

Luckily, history is on the show’s side. Turkish film and TV does well for itself on Netflix, with savvy viewers having recognized the quality of something like Ethos and learned to look out for offerings from the region. A show like The Gift, which has aired three seasons at this point, is a good sign, though admittedly that show has the advantage of working within more crowd-pleasing genres. Still, Another Self is a reasonably engaging drama with solid performances and a very likable leading trio, so anyone who buys into the character dynamics will surely want to see more. Since the first season finale didn’t really end any of the ongoing storylines, there’s a good chance if the show performs even moderately well that Netflix will take a chance on another go-around.

If I had to make a prediction, I’d tentatively lean towards a renewal. And if any of the claims on the link above can be believed, perhaps we’ll see it within six months rather than twelve.

What is Another Self?

Another Self is an eight-part Turkish drama about three women — Ada, Sevgi, and Leyla — who take a road trip to a seaside town in order to connect with a supposed guru in the hopes that his novel healing methods will cure Sevgi’s cancer. While there, they learn more about themselves and each other, learn to better navigate their personal relationships and traumas, and come to understand that contemporary medicine isn’t the only way to heal. A surprisingly positive and upbeat drama with a welcome focus on themes such as openness and understanding, Another Self is a pleasant blip in the streaming landscape.
