Will the series get an early renewal on Netflix or not? Here is everything we know so far about Outlast Season 2.
After all, the journey has reached its end with the first season, which was filled with major ups and downs before announcing the winner. It is fair to say that the viewers who love such survival series have been anticipating knowing if the network will renew the show for more seasons or not.
The streaming service has already dabbled in every other category of reality shows, which includes Love is Blind, Too Hot to Handle, The Mole, The Circle, Selling Sunset, and many others. It is somewhat startling that it has taken Netflix this long to enter this specific original reality show subgenre.
Though, this is a great sign that the network is open to expanding on this genre based on viewer demand, which has been growing over the last few years more than ever! The show did manage to enter the top 10 charts on Netflix in some regions, which was a bit unexpected and refreshing to see that this genre is still alive among viewers.
If you’re one of them, then you’ve reached the right spot. We’re here to clear up any confusion about the show’s current status and get straight to the point: Right now, Netflix has not renewed the series for a second season!
As the status is neither here nor there, the prospective premiere date is speculative. So, we can predict that the potential release date might happen sometime around 2024 on Netflix. In order to receive updates on when Outlast Season 2 premieres, interested viewers can also enable notifications. Moreover, if greenlit the next season can have at least 8 episodes, similar to the first season.
We would like to highlight that the number of episodes may vary depending on the contestants who will participate in the season or if the network changes the concept for a new twist and turn to capture the viewers’ attention. Until then, fans should keep a close eye on the social media handles of the show to learn about any new updates regarding the renewals.
Take a look at some tweets from some viewers who have tuned into streaming Outlast Season 1:

Though #Survivor was initially received as such, #Outlast on Netflix is truly the most “Lord of the Flies” behavior I have ever seen on reality TV. It is equal parts shocking, aggravating, and captivating. All episodes are up now, and I definitely recommend them! https://t.co/eP7KWk4SUR

If there is any karma in the world, a grizzly bear will cruelly devour all three remaining members of team Alpha on @netflix #Outlast. $1M or not, I couldn't live with myself winning the way they are.

This survivalist show on Netflix called Outlast is actually kinda interesting as a case study of the conservative mind.
16 loner survivalist white folk drop into the Alaska wilderness to team up and it’s the teaming up part that fucks them up.
Then they turn on each other.

Outlast on Netflix shows further proof that karma exists and will bite you in the ass. #NetflixOutlast

Outlast on Netflix is good! I would have stayed just to destroy Jill and Amber’s shelter. If I was going home, I wouldn’t leave without slapping one of them. Especially if I was leaving anyway. #Outlast #Netflix

Outlast: What is the show about?
In the new eight-episode series, all 16 players are dropped by parachute in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness during the fall — in other words, right when the threat of rain, freezing temperatures, and bears becomes more real as winter draws closer. After they arrive, the players learn that they won’t be competing on their own; instead, they’ll need to split up into four different teams, and each team has to set up camp in a different location.
Though each individual has a strong set of survival skills, they’re required to work together as a team to win the million-dollar prize!
In order to win the million-dollar prize, no one individual can work alone; each has to put their faith in complete strangers to survive the unforgiving Alaskan wilderness as a team. Players can change teams at any time, leading to unexpected alliances, selfish maneuvers, and decisions that could make or break each team’s ability to survive. There’s no voting out of players in Outlast, either – the only way out is to give up.
In the meantime, viewers should be patient and stream the show, which is available exclusively on Netflix, with other series of the same genre also accessible on the streaming platform with a range of membership options. The basic membership starts at $9.99/month, and the standard membership starts at $15.49/month. You may play mobile games and stream movies and TV shows at no additional cost with any of their services. Take a look at the official sneak peek below:
