Will there be a Season 2 of Who Is Erin Carter?

This article discusses the possibility of Who Is Erin Carter Season 2 and the renewed or canceled status of the Netflix series. It contains spoilers for the first season.

The Netflix thriller Who Is Erin Carter? has a very familiar premise – a seemingly normal person really has a secretive set of skills and a dangerous past that they’re on the run from.

In this case, the titular Erin is an ex-pat schoolteacher in Barcelona who, we learn across the seven-part series, has fled Blighty after working as an undercover agent.

In the present day, she lives with her daughter Harper but finds her carefully cultivated cover exposed when she’s forced to intervene in an armed robbery. Suddenly front-page news, a whole can of worms is opened that comes to involve Erin’s husband Jordi, her cop neighbor Emilio, the villain Daniel Lang, and Harper’s birth mother, Lena.

Here’s a quote from our review:

As things stand, this feels like the stunted offspring of much better shows with deeper emotion, more mystery, and better-crafted action (the occasional set-piece livens things up, but there’s nothing especially memorable.) Many characters and subplots feel like transplants from different shows altogether, and you can tell that nobody has any real idea which of them deserves focus. BAFTA-nominated writer Jack Lothian is responsible for a bafflingly bad script loaded with dodgy plotting and even dodgier dialogue.

For those who enjoyed the show and are wondering about its potential future, here’s everything we know about a potential second season.

Will there be a Season 2 of Who Is Erin Carter?

Renewed or canceled status: TBC

At the time of writing, Netflix have not renewed Who Is Erin Carter? for Season 2.

The streamer will pay some attention to the important metrics like the number of watch-hours, and how many viewers watch the series to completion. They’ll also consider critical and audience reception on aggregators like Rotten Tomatoes, The show already seems to have amassed a decent amount of popularity, though, and the relatively slight seven-episode season is ideally suited to a binge-watch, which will be favorable to that all-important completion percentage.

Despite Who Is Erin Carter? being perhaps a little too familiar in its broad strokes, it is that kind of content that tends to do very well on home viewing, and if the show picks up word of mouth, it has all the makings of a serious hit despite its wavering quality.

After having watched the season, one gets the sense that Netflix has some faith in the show and its characters. The ending of Season 1 has a solid thematic payoff but also teases a second season. There’s the chance that Netflix sees dollar signs in the marketability of a female action heroine who can sustain multiple seasons, though, without the mystery of Erin’s identity, subsequent seasons would have to take a somewhat different approach.

Our official prediction is that Netflix will renew Who Is Erin Carter? for a second season, and as ever we’ll update this page with more information as soon as we have it, so look out for that in the near future.

How many episodes does Who Is Erin Carter have?

At present, Who Is Erin Carter? only has 7 episodes. If it remains a limited series, we do not expect this to change. However, with all the hype, we fully expect a second season and more episodes.

    As former law enforcement I saw many impossible things or at least wildly exaggerated scenarios but the daughter was a great character and I am a Douglas Henshall/Shetland fan, so I was entertained. If there is a season 2, I will watch.

    I think they’re definitely should be a season 2. Especially since her old boss showed up in the middle of her holiday. Jordi already knows everything about her, so it will have to go in a different direction, but still very worth it.
