There are many reality shows on Netflix, but the Spanish series ‘Insiders’ stands out with its original approach. Unlike other reality shows, the ‘Insiders’ contestants have no awareness they are already on the show. ‘Insiders’ was praised for its concept, superb music, and simple flow.
Each episode is shorter than an hour-long, which critics praised even more. The series was also presented by Najwa Nimri (Alicia Sierra from Money Heist), which added to its allure. The question now is whether the show will return for a second season. Here’s what we know so far.
The first episode, which was released in October 2021, begins on a welcoming note where the host explains some basic aspects of the show to the contestants and they are given fifteen minutes to say goodbye to their friends and family before they begin the casting process (but they don’t know that it has already begun).
Then, the director tells them that one of their phone interactions has leaked to the press and the show will shut down if the culprit doesn’t come forward. Tatiana happens to be the culprit and is removed from the show after a confrontation. That’s how the frame is set for the show going forward.
At the end of the series, the winner takes home a grand prize of €100,000. It is quite intriguing to see those private meetings that are unbeknownst to the contestants and how they twist the situations, making it an overall exciting as well as an eerie watch.
Insiders were praised by the viewers and critics and ever since the series ended, the question has been whether the show will be back with another season and the answer is yes!
During a press conference for Netflix’s Spanish originals at the 2021 Vitoria Festival, Álvaro Díaz, Netflix Spain’s director of non-fiction content, confirmed that a second season had already been filmed.
Will There Be a Season 2 of Insiders?
There has been a lot of talk about whether or not Netflix will commission another round of episodes for Insiders season 2. The good news is that there is some clarification on this topic, so viewers, unlike participants, are no longer in the dark.
Netflix Spain’s director of non-fiction content, Alvaro Diaz, said at a press conference at the 2021 Vitoria FesTVal that a second season has already been shot. Insiders season 2 is officially occurring and has already been filmed, so it shouldn’t be long until it arrives on the streaming service for subscribers to enjoy.
Season 2 Release Date Estimates for Insiders
While it is known that the sequel is already in the works, it has not been confirmed when fans will be able to view it. There has been no official release date mentioned for Insiders season 2, but given that it has already been completed, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to expect it to come somewhere in the first half of 2022.
This is just conjecture at this point, but given that the series has topped the charts in countries such as Portugal, Spain, Uruguay, and Venezuela, it’s probably safe to assume that Netflix will release the next episode sooner rather than later.
Detailed information about the casting of Season 2 is not available right now. However, Najwa Namri is expected to make a comeback as the host in the renewed season. As for the contestants, we will most likely see a fresh batch of participants.
The first season had about 13 contestants namely Laura Nunez, Tatiana Cruz, Estefania Vela, Barbara, Nicole Delgado Gordita, Ivan Molina, Hugo Ruiz, Peter Base, Fama Marong, Ivan Miguez, Olaya Bizori, Cynthia Camara and Francisco.
