Will the limited series created by Donald Todd return for a second season? Here is everything we know so far about Florida Man Season 2.
If you have come across the social media meme of “Florida Man” then there is no doubt even a quick Google search for the term will bring up countless headlines from recent weeks alone with one being a new limited series for Netflix, simply titled, “Florida Man.”
Yesterday all seven episodes of the much anticipated American streaming television limited series dropped on Netflix which showcases the infamous “Florida Man” that has become a well-known meme that has made its way into popular culture. The absurd headlines of bizarre and often criminal acts committed by a person, usually male, in Florida have garnered attention from all over the world.
This is the trend that has definitely been an inspiration for this new Netflix series. We are certain that it will become one of the most watched weekend shows on the streaming platform due to its interesting concept which has captured the attention of the viewers long before the series promos started.
Due to this rising interest, the question relating to its early renewals is popping up all over social media. It’s safe to say that the fans are already speculating if there will be a second season or not. If you’re wondering the same thing, then you’ve come to the right place! We’ve compiled a quick summary of everything you need to know about the current status of Florida Man Season 2.
Is Florida Man renewed for Season 2?
Right now, there has been no official announcement from Netflix regarding the renewal of the show, as the series premiered just a few hours ago, which makes it impossible for the network to assess the show’s overall reception and confirm its approval for additional seasons, especially when the series has always been classified as a limited series, which are usually ideal for just one season.
Moreover, the plot, which follows an ex-cop who is sent back to his home state of Florida to solve a case, has concluded perfectly with the final episode, “Sunk Costs,” in which the viewers saw Moss bailing out Mike in an effort to retrieve the treasure from the truck once and for all.
After picking up on a new clue, Mike seeks a fresh start. There is no need for it to be expanded unnecessarily, and we don’t expect Netflix to say anything about its future. However, there have been other instances where the first limited series was eventually given the go-ahead for more seasons after the reception exceeded everyone’s expectations.
“Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story,” which was only supposed to be a limited series, is one such excellent example from more recent times. It swiftly rose to the top of Netflix’s all-time most-watched shows, and it was renewed for another two seasons. If Florida Man also performs remarkably well, then there is a possibility that Netflix might decide to change course and continue the program or turn it into an anthology.
In this case, the renewal might be announced a month or two after the premiere. In the end, the decision to renew “Florida Man” for a second season will likely come down to Netflix’s ratings and whether or not they see enough interest from viewers to justify another season. Until then, fans of the show can continue to enjoy the absurd headlines that come out of Florida on a regular basis and speculate about what crazy stories might be featured in a potential second season if by some miracle it gets renewed in the near future.
Florida Man: What is the series about?
The official synopsis of the series states, “When a struggling ex-cop (Edgar Ramírez) is forced to return to his home state of Florida to find a Philly mobster’s runaway girlfriend, what should be a quick gig becomes a wildly spiraling journey into buried family secrets, and an increasingly futile attempt to do the right thing in a place where so much is wrong. Florida Man, from creator Donald Todd, is a wild odyssey into a sunny place for shady people.”
