This article discusses the possibility of Transatlantic Season 2 and the renewed or canceled status of the Netflix series.

Inspired by Julie Orringer’s book The Flight Portfolio, itself based on the exploits of the Emergency Rescue Committee during World War II, Transatlantic is a seven-part Netflix period drama that uses its factual basis for a somewhat soapy tale of romance and derring-do in Nazi-occupied France during 1940.

The ERC, led by American journalist Varian Fry, busied itself with spiriting away various artists, philosophers, and otherwise anti-Nazi thinkers. Many move into a villa in Marseille with Fry, his lover Thomas, and moneyed American ex-pat Mary Jayne while working on a scheme to evade capture by the Germans and self-serving American and French officials.

Here’s a quote from our review:

This fascinating historical basis adds a lot to Transatlantic, which is “inspired by” Orringer’s book The Flight Portfolio and was co-created by Anna Winger (Deutschland 83) and Daniel Hendler. And the efforts of the ERC, through a mismatched team of well-meaning outcasts and sympathetic movers and shakers, remain the show’s focus throughout, giving it a distinct tone and vibe from a lot of other World War II-era dramas.

Renewed or canceled status: TBC

At the time of writing Netflix has not officially confirmed the future of the series. However, given it was marketed as a limited series, uses a singular book as source material, and tells a relatively complete story, signs point towards Transatlantic not being renewed for another season.

However, that doesn’t mean we won’t see more stories about the exploits of the ERC and other prominent resistance members who worked against the Nazi regime during the period. The creator of Transatlantic, Anna Winger, has a multi-project deal with Netflix and has already expressed an interest in telling other stories from the period.

The “limited series” classification is never set in stone, however it would require Transatlantic to perform way above expectations in order for Netflix to change their plans. The show has had a so-so reception from critics so far, so it’ll be interesting to monitor how it fares with audiences in the coming weeks.

Our official prediction is that Transatlantic will not be renewed for a second season, but that’s subject to change, and we’ll be sure to update this article whenever we learn more.
