Kleo Season 2 Plot: What can the fans expect from the new season?
The official press release issued by Netflix for the second season of the much-loved fast-paced action thriller KLEO highlights the overall plot of the second season, which is as follows:
“Her suitcase is gone, her partner traitorous, her ex-boyfriend dead, his wife an agent… How many people can you be betrayed by?
Ex-Stasi killer Kleo Straub (Jella Haase) has solved the mystery of the conspiracy surrounding her arrest, but the evidence is now in the hands of the CIA thanks to her antagonist or partner in crime Sven (Dimitrij Schaad). The vendetta continues at a fast pace, taking Kleo to Belgrade and Moscow in Season 2 – and to a crossroads between the past and the possible future.
This time former East German spy Kleo shall destroy it for good. It quickly becomes clear that the bag’s contents play an important role in the reorganization of Germany and Europe after the Cold War. No wonder, then, that the KGB and the CIA are also after the suitcase and thus the retired Stasi killer. And while Kleo holds the future of Europe in her hands, she is catapulted deeper into her own past than she would like.”
Kleo Season 2 Expected Cast: Who will return to reprise their roles?
Even though no details have been clarified about who will reprise their roles for the second season, a lot has transpired with the main characters in the first season. But we still speculate that the original cast might return in the new season, which is as follows: Jella Haase as Kleo Straub, Dimitrij Schaad as Sven Petzold, Julius Feldmeier as Thilo, Vincent Redetzki as Uwe Mittig, Vladimir Burlakov as Andi Wolf, Marta Sroka as Anja, Jürgen Heinrich as Otto Straub, Alessija Lause as Anne Geike. There can be some new additions and removals from the cast, which will be disclosed in the near future.
Until then, one can just speculate about who might have the chance to return for the next chapter.
The showrunner and writer team HaRiBo (Para – Wir sind King, 4 Blocks), consisting of Hanno Hackfort, Richard Kropf, and Bob Konrad, is once again responsible for season 2. Michael Souvignier, Till Derenbach, and Jörg Engels from Zeitsprung Pictures act as executive producers. The series is directed by Isabel Braak and Nina Vukovic, with scripts by HaRiBo and Katharina Brauer. After shooting in Berlin and Brandenburg in July, the KLEO production will now hit the streets of the Serbian capital, Belgrade, in the fall for the second season in order to premiere by next year.
Additionally, Netflix Deutschland’s official YouTube channel also released a new behind-the-scenes clip confirming that Kleo Season 2 is already in production and the hunt for the red suitcase continues: This time, ex-GDR spy Kleo is supposed to destroy it for good! Moreover, in the footage, it can be seen at the end that the clapperboard for the episode for Kleo season 2 confirms that Isabel Braak and Nina Vukavoic are directing.

Kleo Season 2 Official Episode Count: Where to stream?
The upcoming season is expected to have a total of 8 episodes with an average runtime of 48 to 60 minutes, which might drop at once, so you can binge it instantly! On the other hand, the episode titles and synopsis of the series are not released by the network to avoid early spoilers. The network will publish those details when the episodes are due to air on the streaming service. So, we would advise fans to be patient while waiting for these updates, which will be issued once the season premieres.
Furthermore, ever since the first behind-the-scenes look from the production of the second season was recently published. As a result, any hopes for additional details being disclosed anytime soon are farfetched to assume, as the network will try its best to avoid early potential spoilers!

The video quality and the number of screens you can use to stream Netflix simultaneously depend on the package you choose. The basic membership starts at $9.99/month, and the standard membership starts at $15.49/month at no additional cost for any of their services.
Kleo Season 2 Official Trailer: Has it been released?
Unfortunately, Netflix has not released any new teaser or trailer for the second season, as the production is still ongoing due to which there is still a lot of time left for such promotional stuff to begin! In the meantime, we suggest you take a look at the official trailer of the first season, which follows:
“After the fall of the Berlin Wall, a woman wants revenge and answers to all her questions. But who is this woman? In 1987, after successfully assassinating a double agent in a West Berlin club, East German Stasi assassin Kleo Straub is falsely imprisoned by her agency. When she is released after the Berlin Wall is taken down in 1989, she plans her revenge on the conspirators who framed her. Meanwhile, Sven Petzold, an underappreciated fraud policeman who witnessed the 1987 murder, finds connections between it and Straub, leading him to impede her vengeance quest.”
