So you’ve binge-watched The Defeated on Netflix and want to watch the next season? The Defeated Season 2 will be coming soon, so stick around and find out when it will come out.
In this article, we will tell when Season 2 premiers on Netflix, What will happen in the next season, and who will be returning from the cast.
The Defeated is a German original TV show where an American Police officer (Max McLaughlin) arrives in Berlin, Germany, to find his brother, who everyone thinks is dead. Also, he tries to bring together a task force in the wake of the aftermath of World War II.
At first, the TV series was named Shadowplay, but after it was aired on Netflix, the show was rebranded to The Defeated.
Right after it was released on Netflix in 2020, it became one of the most watched TV shows at that time. Everyone was looking for its 2nd Season, but no one seemed to know when it was coming.
The Defeated Season 2: When Is It Coming?
The Defeated is a 16-episode story, according to the directors of the show. When the show was released worldwide in 2020, there were rumors all over the community that Season 2 would start filming immediately.
As a matter of fact, the Second season was supposed to be filmed, but it got delayed due to the restrictions of Covid-19 in 2020-21.
Now that Covid-19 restrictions are over, the fans are still wondering when the shooting will start. Do keep in mind that eight episodes are still remaining to complete the story.
Season 2: Is There Any Release Date?
We do know that the first season was shot in 2019. For the second season, we saw a post from Logan Marshall-Green in which he showed the set of Season 2. It was in January 2021.
Fast forward two years, and we still see no sign of season 2.
The reason why they have been slow in shooting season is that the pandemic broke the flow. It is not easy to gather all the cast members from different parts of the world and make them work. It required a budget and new contracts as the old ones are invalid now.
The good news is that the directors are eager to bring the remaining eight episodes to the audience so that they can complete the story and call it goodbye. When we look at the first season, it took not more than one year to wrap up shooting and post-production.
Season 2, on the other hand, might take even less to film.
So, we can expect The Defeated Season 2 to finally come out at the end of 2023.
What Will Happen In Season 2?
To describe what will happen in season 2, we need to first recap the events of Season 1. Season 1 is about how an American cop Max comes to Berlin and gets involved in an investigation about Anne Friedrich.
Upon going deep down into his mission and the investigation, he finds out that there is an “Angel Maker” who happens to be controlling many of the girls. However, his sole purpose seems to be finding his brother, who was assumed dead.
Altogether, the show is about how post-war Germany was full of war crimes along with the rise of the mafia.
In the future, we might see Elsie and Max getting close to each other. Also, Moritz might want vengeance on the Nazis. Tom Franklin was also wronged and needs justice. Now that Glasgow was arrested, we might or might not see him further in the coming episodes.
Season 2 Expected Cast
The lead Taylor Kitsch as Max McLaughlin and Logan Marshall Green’s character Moritz is confirmed. Max and Moritz are brothers. Other actors include Michael Hall as Tom Franklin and Tuppence Middleton as Claire Franklin, Tom’s wife.
All the above-mentioned actors will definitely be around in Season 2. However, some characters might not be seen in Season 2, such as Trude and Marrianne, as we didn’t see them by the end of the first season.
The Defeated is an interesting post-war Germany show where an American Police officer comes to Berlin to find the whereabouts of his presumed dead brother.
The first season of the shows has been so successful on Netflix that the viewers cannot wait to see what happens in Season 2. The shooting for Season 2 got delayed due to Covid-19, but we are optimistic that season 2 will surely come by the end of 2023.
