Will there be The Recruit season 2 on Netflix? Latest news and rumours

Noah Centineo fans gather: The actor’s latest release, The Recruit, has arrived on Netflix, and sees him graduate from romcoms to full-scale action.

Centineo is Owen Hendricks, a young but untrained CIA lawyer who has been pushed to the edge of the spy world.

Disaster strikes as she deals with a troubled asset turned rogue while avoiding the usual 20s to start a new job and navigate life.

Fans who have already rocked the eight-episode Netflix series are hoping for another season, but are they in luck?

Here’s what we know so far about a possible The Recruit season 2.

Netflix has yet to announce whether The Recruit has been canceled or renewed for Season 2, but the streamer will be closely monitoring viewership numbers over the next month or so as it weighs the decision.

Based on Hawley’s previous work, it looks like The Recruit is intended to run for multiple seasons (as opposed to being a limited series) and there’s definitely potential to take the premise further.

We will update this page as soon as there is new information about the future of The Recruit.

Who Could Return For A Possible Season 2 Of The Recruit?

If The Recruit returns for Season 2, it’s likely that Noah Centineo will once again lead the cast, having become a Netflix talent since his role in the To All The Boys trilogy.

Once again he could have the support of actors Aarti Mann (Never Have I Ever), Colton Dunn (Superstore) and Fivel Stewart (Atypical) helping to give the show a comedic edge.

Meanwhile, The Recruit star also had Daredevil star Vondie Curtis-Hall along with Kaylah Zander (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Kristian Bruun (Orphan Black) and Laura Haddock (White Lines) among the top names in Season 1.

If The Recruit returns for Season 2, it’s likely that Owen Hendricks will be thrown into another high-stakes mission, though this time around he might be a little more prepared for the experience.

While he’s nowhere near the agency’s most skilled operatives, the character definitely went on a journey in Season 1 and picked up some survival instincts that could be crucial the next time he’s in the line of fire.

There are also some unresolved plot threads from the beginning of the episodes that fans will want to see continued or completely tied up, so hopefully those will be incorporated into the narrative if there is another season.
