Rough Diamonds season 2: Is it renewed or canceled?
To answer that question, the series has neither been renewed nor canceled, as of May 2023. Netflix usually takes a couple of months after the release to declare the renewal of a newly launched show. So we would have to have to wait until the producers of the show make any sort of announcements.
But we have sad news for the fans that are waiting for a season 2. As per the reports, the series would most probably be a standalone series. This was declared by the makers at the time of writing of the show. But still there are hopes because we would also need to take into consideration the fact that the producers of the show have not yet issued any official announcement regarding this matter. It will not be any surprise to assume that the show might be renewed for a second season. If it is successful on the runway, the producers may consider bringing it back for a second season, in the same way as other limited series, such as squid games.
Rough Diamonds Season 2: What to expect from Season 2?
Even though the second season has not been confirmed as of now, if it does end up being produced, we can expect that the storyline will pick up where it left off in the first season.
In season 1, we witness how Noah, who is the oldest son in the family, was estranged and left his orthodox family behind and moved to London. But later he comes back as he learns his younger brother Yanki died by suicide. He takes his 15-year-old son Tommy along with him too.
