renewal status: The One is a British crime drama science fiction miniseries created by Howard Overman, based on the novel written by John Marrs. The 8-episode series premiered on Netflix on March 12, 2021.
The show runs on the premise of finding your perfect mate with a simple DNA test. Imagine what it would be like if it only took one strand of hair to find the best partner for your life.
While the act is simple, the implications can be explosive, and the same has emerged in the show, and it’s a poignant theme to set the tone of a series.
Has The One been renewed for a season 2?
Although the novel written by John Marrs has no sequel, he stated that he gave full rights to the team and could make any changes he wanted. Indeed, this makes it easier for Netflix to come up with a season 2.
Neither Netflix nor the show’s creators revealed anything about the next season, but the series’ critical acclaim shows it’s possible. The show was in the top 10 for more than a week in a row, explaining how much the show would have interested viewers.
Even with the show renewed due to the delayed production processes (no thanks to the pandemic) of the production and the first season not premiering until March, we can expect the next season to come for us no earlier than 2022.
What and who can we expect from Season 2 of The One?
If there is a green light for the show from the streaming service, we can expect the show to return with a few faces from the first season.
Hannah Ware will certainly be back in her role as the ruthless CEO, and James (Dimitri Leonidas), the co-founder and developer of the science behind the matchmaking service, Hannah (Lois Chimimba), and Mark (Eric Kofi-Abrefa) may be expected to return to their role as a married couple. And there is always room for a few new faces, too.
