This article discusses the possibility of Class Act Season 2 and the renewed or canceled status of the Netflix series. It may contain spoilers for Season 1.
Class Act is a Netflix limited series chronicling the real-life rise and fall of Bernard Tapie, an ambitious man who refuses to accept the everyman lifestyle of his father and is determined to become, one way or another, known across the length and breadth of France.
Class Act charts his process of trying to achieve greater things, and also the toll that the pursuit of them takes on Tapie and his family. It’s a classic tale in many ways of how careerism and unchecked ambition can just as easily lead to personal success as they can utter ruin.
From our review:
With its strong performances from both the lead and supporting cast, a highly compelling central figure, and a basis in truth that is sometimes more incredulous than the embellishments, Class Act is a captivating biographical drama series about a compelling, larger-than-life figure.
With the limited series proving relatively popular and well-regarded on the streaming platform, fans may be wondering about the potential future of the series, so here’s everything we know.
Will there be a Class Act Season 2 on Netflix?
Renewed or canceled status: TBC
At the time of writing, Netflix have not renewed Class Act for a second season, and this is likely to remain the case.
When it comes to deciding whether or not to renew a series, Netflix may attention to certain vital metrics. These metrics include how many viewers watch the first episode, how many watch the whole thing, and how well-received the show among critics and audiences on aggregate sites like Rotten Tomatoes.
At the time of writing Class Act does not have enough critic or user reviews to have earned an aggregate score in either category, however in this case, it’s unlikely to matter either way.
Class Act has been billed as a limited series, which means it’s intended to tell a complete story in a single season. At present, there are no plans for that story to be continued in any way.
The series tells a true story about a real-life figure and reached a meaningful thematically-complete ending in the Season 1 finale. With this in mind it would be incredibly unlikely to continue the story, unless perhaps it focused on some of the other key figures involved in Tapie’s story, especially those adjacent to the match-fixing scandal.
However, again, this is very unlikely. Our official prediction is that Class Act will not be renewed for a second season, though in the unlikely event that changes, we’ll make sure you’re the first to know about it.
