In January 2023, Netflix decided to bring back The Recruit for a second season. The person behind the show, Alexi Hawley, who created it and runs the show, talked about how thrilled he was for the show’s comeback in an interview with Netflix’s TUDUM.
One of the key figures, Centineo, is set to return as one of the executive producers for The Recruit.
The reason for Season 2 getting the green light was its impressive performance in terms of viewership during its first week. A whopping 95.59 million hours of people’s time were spent watching it.
As for when Season 2 will hit our screens, that’s still up in the air. The writers’ strike by the Writer’s Guild of America recently ended, but there’s still an ongoing strike by the Screen Actors Guild. This means it might take a while before the cameras start rolling.
In April 2023, it was reported that filming for The Recruit Season 2 was initially planned for June 2023 but got pushed to August 2023. Unfortunately, due to the Hollywood actors’ strike beginning in July 2023, there’s no clear start date for production.
For Season 1, they filmed in Quebec, Canada, and Los Angeles, California, from October 2021 to March 2022. If they follow a similar timeline for Season 2, with filming starting in early 2024, it could wrap up around June. This suggests that The Recruit Season 2 might premiere in November or December 2024.
