We discuss whether there will be a season 2 of the Netflix series The Law According to Lidia Poët and its renewed or canceled status. 

Loosely based on the life of Italy’s first female lawyer, The Law According to Lidia Poët is a mystery-of-the-week series that follows the titular character as she uses her wits to solve murders in 19th-century Turin.

Like her real-life counterpart, Lidia Poët, portrayed by Matilda De Angelis, finds herself disbarred as an attorney because of her gender. That fails to stop the ambitious young woman from fighting for her right to practice her trade or seeking justice for her clients. Joining Lidia in her quest are her brother, Enrico Poët (Pier Luigi Pasino), and the reporter Jacopo (Eduardo Scarpetta), who also happens to become her will-they-won’t-they love interest. 

Our Ready Steady Cut critic, Daniel Hart, describes the series as “effortlessly alluring” and “a little gem from costumes to settings and downright superb acting by the cast.” Two Rotten Tomatoes critics deemed the series worthy of a positive review, while the audience score of  7.2/10 on IMDB suggests viewers enjoyed streaming this enticing new series. 

Despite protests from subscribers, Netflix has a habit of canceling good shows. Could that be the case with The Law According to Lidia Poët? Will Netflix greenlight another installment following the exploits of this classy woman ahead of her time?

Will there be a season 2 of the Netflix series The Law According to Lidia Poët – renewed or canceled status

August 4th, 2023

The Law According to Lidia Poet has been renewed for a second season by Netflix. This does not come as a surprise considering its popularity.

We expect the series to return in 2024.

March 30th, 2023

The series has yet to be officially renewed for a second season, but given the mostly positive response from critics and audience, there’s a high chance it will be. However, viewer opinion is not the only thing that goes into Netflix’s decision to keep or ax a series. They’re also looking at complicated metrics such as how many people start watching the series and what percentage of them stream it to the last episode. There’s also the distinct possibility this show was created as a miniseries rather than a multi-season story arc. And the ending could be interpreted either way. 

In the real-life story, Lidia was in her 60s by the time she finally got her bar license back to practice law. So, in theory, the fictionalized version of her life can fill in the blanks throughout several seasons, and the producers could continue her story for years to come. In practice, it’s all down to whether the streaming giant thinks a second season is worth their bottom line. 

The Law According to Lidia Poët has a good chance of seeing a second installment, based on viewer and critic reactions alone. But as nothing’s confirmed yet, our opinions are little more than pure speculation. Should Netflix decide to renew the series, we could expect season 2 to drop at some point in 2024. We’ll keep an eye out for the official announcement and update this article once we know if a second season is on the cards. 

The Law According to Lidia Poët Season 2 Release Date 

Without confirmation of Season 2, it’s difficult to predict when Lidia Poet will return to our screens. The longer we wait for confirmation, the more likely we’ll have The Law According to Lidia Poët Season 2 by Spring 2024.

    Very enjoyable! Good story lines and well-developed characters. I hope it will return!

  • February 19, 2023 at 4:03 am

    I binged watched the first season of The Law according to Lydia Poet and was completely captured by it! I’ve recommended it to my friends and family and who enjoyed it as well. It would be a great disappointment to us if Netflix doesn’t continue the series. I will eventually stop watching Netflix series if they continue to drop such great shows.

    Lydia Poet is engaging, intelligently telling a story of a woman who desires more from life then just a husband and children. The acting is above average for a series and the chemistry between Lydia, Enrico and Jacobo is fascinating. I hope Netflix does not cancel another good series. Lydia Poet has more stories to tell.

  • February 19, 2023 at 12:49 pm

    I give it two thumbs up and a standing ovation. Bravo. ?

  • February 21, 2023 at 2:43 am

    Great show held our interest good acting great costumes can’t wait for a second season

  • February 21, 2023 at 8:47 am

    I think this has to be the best series of all from Italy. But it’s about a woman who could be from anywhere in the world: her struggles to be recognised as a lawyer, insight to the plights of women (which men didn’t seem to be aware of, or just didn’t understand). Lidia Poet was obviously a very clever woman. Portrayed by a brilliant young actress, the whole drama is wonderful. The fact that this is based on a real person makes it even more relevent to today. The sets and costume designs too, are magnificent! Please let us have a second and THIRD series.

  • February 21, 2023 at 10:46 pm

    We really enjoyed watching this show. Great entertainment! Look forward to future seasons. Telling family and friends to watch!

  • February 21, 2023 at 11:26 pm

    I enjoyed every episode of The Law According to Lydia Poet. The cast is brilliant, especially the adorable, bright actress who plays Lidia, the storyline intelligent, delightfu and relevant. A second season is a must. Please, my friends and I want to know what exciting fortune and challenges she will meet in NY in her successful legal career.

  • February 22, 2023 at 12:42 am

    Excellent series! Great acting and storyline. Sort of an Italian “ The Closer.” She is so good at her job but the men of that century won’t give her a chance and she proves them wrong by solving the cases. Love Matilda!

  • February 22, 2023 at 1:31 am

    Wow, what a find. This series should have been at least 8 episodes right out of the gate. I taught about the contributions of African American women for 17 years at a Mid-western University. I now wish I had done a better job at delving into their personal lives as well. This series presents the total package of womanhood. Netflix must give us more!

  • February 22, 2023 at 1:46 am

    Please please please bring us many more seasons of the Law according to Lydia Poet!

  • February 22, 2023 at 2:33 am

    Don’t cancel!!! What a great show about a very strong woman character. What a refreshing change. Keep it Netflix. Great stories, great cast and wonderful costumes!

  • February 22, 2023 at 5:01 am

    We loved the whole series until the end and binge watched it as it was quite interesting with great transitions and it kept one on the edge of his/her seat.
    Please return with season2!

  • February 22, 2023 at 3:46 pm

    I loved Lidia Poet, I truly hope you bring back more seasons. I was in bed watching all the episodes till the end. I give it a 10.

  • February 22, 2023 at 7:51 pm

    Loved it! Want a Season 2! I really liked the dubbing using an Italian voice.

  • February 22, 2023 at 8:45 pm

    Truly enjoyed this series.

  • February 23, 2023 at 2:16 am

    Thoroughly enjoyed the six episodes and wanting more. The interaction between the main characters is fantastic.So so much more to delve into as they explore their pasts. Twists &turns in each episode as Lidia reaches her conclusions on who is the guilty party. Definitely need another season

  • February 23, 2023 at 2:27 am

    We loved this series start to finish. Hoping it’s renewed by Netflix.

  • February 23, 2023 at 5:29 am

    loved it- hope to see more of Lidia soon!

  • February 23, 2023 at 7:48 am

    Absolutely captivating show. Intruqued by the beginnings of forensic evidence to solve her cases. It would be a shame not to renew Lidia Poet. From the mesmerizing music, to the great costumes, to spot on acting, to great story lines, it has to return.

  • February 24, 2023 at 2:11 am

    Loved this series! Lydia Poet is a fascinating character with it all: beauty, fashion and character. She knows what she wants and is not afraid to pursue her dreams…my kind of woman!
    Thanks, Netflix for giving us such a wonderful story!

  • February 24, 2023 at 6:19 am

    I enjoyed the story about a courageous young women, who fought for her high worthy principles. Thr costumes and everything period was a bonus!!

  • February 24, 2023 at 1:31 pm

    I binged-watched in 2 days. Lidia Poët is a Captivating character of will perseverance and beauty. Admire the women before us who opened the gates for others and challenged the opposition. With a tad of mystery and a twist of humor, including love affairs,, it would be a shame if Netflix would not allow another season. Then another.

  • February 28, 2023 at 12:20 am

    FIilming only six episodes of the LYDIA POETT series is equivalent to try to build a car with only two wheels.I think that a car with two wheels doesnt work and the series with six episodes wont work either.Under my point of view the series would need a second and a third season to work properly as a car with four wheels.

  • March 1, 2023 at 4:31 am

    Just finished watching season 1 and was shocked there wasn’t a season 2. Truly enjoyed the fantasizing of the true story of Lidia Poet. I believed the real story took years before she ever regain her license to practice again. Netflix has plenty of the true life story of Italy’s first female attorney to have a season 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. Come on Netflix you can do it!

  • March 8, 2023 at 4:26 pm

    If lidia Poet is not renewed for a second season, netflix will not be either.

  • March 9, 2023 at 1:37 am

    I loved Lidia Poet Definitely need a season 2. There aren’t many period shows like this so keep it going

  • March 9, 2023 at 4:48 am

    I just binge watched the whole series and it was EXCELLENT!! Great acting, beautiful costumes, perfect choice of actresses and just a really good show!!

  • March 15, 2023 at 8:16 pm

    I binged watched the whole series and loved it.The costumes were beautiful and I loved the acting and storyline.Netflix has an.opportunity to continue with season 2 as they have lots of good story lines waiting to be told.

  • March 16, 2023 at 4:58 pm

    As good as anything on tv!

  • April 6, 2023 at 11:52 pm

    Great series

  • April 7, 2023 at 10:14 am

    Perhaps the only great series released by Netflix so of course they will not renew it!((( Matilda De Angelis is extraordinary. Hopefully she can soon get more roles that are worthy of her talents.

  • May 4, 2023 at 7:16 pm

    My wife and I loved it. I am also an attorney, so the legal side was also appreciated. Need a season 2!

  • June 3, 2023 at 4:19 pm
