The Gold Season 2: Is it renewed or canceled?

The Gold S02

With the world of crime changing dynamics, after more educated people get into it, we see cyber fraud and white-collar crimes on the rise. While robbery and theft are petty crimes, the era is to talk about Heists or large-scale robberies in fiction or nonfiction.

From shows like Money Heist to many others, they all explore this genre quite well. The Brink’s Mat Robbery, or Brink’s Mat Gold Heist of 1983, was a Historical moment when six robbers broke into Brink’s Mat warehouse at 06:40 on November 26, 1983, at unit 7 of the Heathrow International Trading Estate near Heathrow Airport in West London, England.

It was described as the “crime of the century” for the heinous nature of the audacity with which the crime happened. The Gold has been a series that looked at this crime from an insider’s point of view, taking all stakeholder accounts into play. With the successful completion of the second season recently this month, fans are already wondering if this thriller show will return for a new season. They are in for good news, as the show is set to return for a second season. Here is all we know about The Gold Season 2 so far.

Is The Gold Season 2 happening?

The show has been a massive hit on BBC One, and looking at the reviews, many talks are going around regarding a second season in the works. The show has an IMDb rating of 7.4/10 and a Rotten Tomatoes score of 86%. It has a TV Guide score of 69% and Google user liking of 83%.

The Sun has reported that this Brink’s Mat Gold Heist Crime drama will see  “even more characters involved in the original crime” in the second season. While BBC and makers have not announced anything officially, the chances of a second season are quite high, though nothing can be promised yet.  The Sun has done exclusive in-depth interviews where indirectly it got hints like “firm plans to make a follow-up” from the maker’s end. The show’s creator, Neil Forsyth, also spoke to when asked about the possibility of a second season, to which he said, “There is certainly still a story to tell, so we will have to see what happens.For now, I’m just delighted with the reception that this series has received.” In such a case, one can only wait and watch, as the first season has come to an end only recently.

If the show is renewed for a new season, looking at the BBC network and its remarkable speed and quality of productions, we can expect a new season by mid or fall of 2024. It is because we are anticipating a renewal around 2024, as there is still time to tabulate the view-cost ratio, even though reviews suggest that the show has been a massive hit.
