This article discusses (or speculates) whether there will be season 2 of the Netflix series Ludik and its renewed or cancelled status.
On August 26, 2022, Netflix released the South African series Ludik which was highly anticipated.
In this series, Daan Ludik (played by Arnold Vosloo) is a businessman that has come from nothing yet has managed to build an empire. He’s the face of a furniture business and has gained fame due to his entrepreneurial flare. But Daan Ludik is more than a furniture salesman turned CEO of an empire. He’s also a secret diamond smuggler.
When a South African mafia learns of this, they kidnap one of Daan’s family members. To ensure the safety of his family member, Daan is forced to use his furniture business to transport guns into Central Africa. His personal and business life is at risk, and he has to use his resources, old and new allies, and personal relationships to prevent losing his family, dying, or receiving jail time. He also sees this as an opportunity to expand his empire. Money speaks.
At Ready Steady Cut, we gave a favorable review: “Ludik is hardly the next big series, but as a watchlist addition, it has all the charisma, action, and story to be worth the viewer’s time.”
Will there be a season 2 of the Netflix series Ludik – renewed or cancelled status
Status: not renewed/TBC.
As we write this article, the series has not been renewed, which is not unusual for Netflix as they always take their time to make a strategic decision.
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’s time). Netflix tends to look out for watch hours, so let’s hope the series gets enough to justify a continuation.
The series certainly has potential, and with a great cast, explosive writing, and an exciting concept, it could be that Netflix throws the dice at this South African series.
Only time will tell, and while we want it renewed, it will be down to watch hours. Let’s hope the viewers showed up for this one. We’ll keep you updated.
