We discuss whether there will be a season 2 of the Netflix series Blockbuster and its renewed or cancelled status. 

Blockbuster is Netflix‘s comedy series, starring Randall Park and Melissa Fumero, about the world’s last remaining Blockbuster video rental store. It landed on Netflix on 3rd November 2022 and is set to be another workplace comedy favourite among audiences. The show brings together a collection of lovable misfits just trying to get through the day together and manage the seemingly impossible task of succeeding as a physical media space in a digital world. Netflix has for some time now been looking for its very own comedy series as beloved as The Office and with the right moves now, might just have it on its hands with Blockbuster.

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

Status: Not renewed yet

Although not yet confirmed to have a second season, it feels like a reasonably safe bet that Netflix will give Blockbuster at least another go. The season ends on a cliffhanger, and I am sure that audiences will be dying to know how things turn out. Assuming that Netflix considers the viewing figures for Blockbuster to be worthy of further investment, and given the overall quality of the series I cannot see why they would not be, then I would expect a second series to be greenlit on this pretty quickly.

Looking at the traditional trajectory of sitcoms like this (Brooklyn 99, Superstore, the Office, Parks and Rec etc.), it is usually in the second season that they really hit their stride. The writers know the actors better and start to write for the actor in the role, the chemistry and dynamics get better established, and so much of the foundation is already laid. With that in mind, the prospect of a second and even third season on Blockbuster is exciting to consider.

Unless, of course, the whole thing is just a preamble for Netflix to callously finish off Blockbuster as they did in real life, in which case, ouch.

You can watch this series with a subscription to Netflix.
