42 Days of Darkness Season 2: Release Date, Renewed or Cancelled?

Based on a true incident, Netflix’s Chilean drama series ’42 Days of Darkness’ centres around Verónica Montes’ disappearance, which astounds the town in which she resides. Verónica’s sister, Cecilia Montes, joins forces with lawyer Victor Pizarro to solve the mystery surrounding the former’s sister’s abduction. Their research leads them to shocking facts that damage the family of the missing woman. The Spanish series, directed by Gaspar Antillo and Claudia Huaiquimilla, premiered in May 2022.

The series, originally named ’42 Days in the Darkness,’ earned positive reviews from critics and spectators alike, particularly for its realistic depiction of true crime, performances, and captivating narrative. Because the first season of the show concludes with enough room for a second season, fans must be curious about its future. So, here’s all you need to know about it!

Release Date for 42 Days of Darkness Season 2

Season 1 of ’42 Days of Darkness’ aired on Netflix in its entirety on May 11, 2022. The first season consists of six episodes, each lasting 40-59 minutes.

Here’s what we know about a second round. Netflix has not yet issued an official comment regarding the series’ future. However, the first season concludes with one of the protagonists, Victor Pizarro, planning to leave for Santiago in order to perhaps become involved in the case of a missing woman. Such a detail suggests that a second season could follow a completely different, most likely true-crime, case. Even if the main narrative of the first season closes in the season finale, such a case generating a new storyline with Pizarro as the protagonist may be an option for the show’s creators to consider when developing a second season.

The conclusion of the first season leaves ample room for Netflix to envision the show in an anthology format. If the first season’s audience ratings satisfy the streaming giant, a second season may be ordered. If it is renewed shortly, we can expect ’42 Days of Darkness’ to be released in Q2 2023.

If the show is renewed for a second season, we may expect Pablo Macaya to reprise his role as Vctor Pizarro in a different investigation located in Santiago.

The first season of the show concludes with Pizarro’s attempts to prove that Mario hired a murderer to kill his wife Verónica. He attempts and fails to get a witness to testify for the same. Because of the absence of evidence, Mario is cleared of murder, but the other defendant is convicted of robbery with homicide. Pizarro reunites with his son, and he decides to accompany him to Santiago, most likely to assist the family of a missing woman.
