Many are unsure if there will be a season two of Netflix’s “Beef” due to Ali Wong and Steven Yeun’s exceptional performances. The series, which centers on a road rage incident between an affluent, overworked mother named Amy (Wong) and a defeated contractor named Danny (Yeun), effectively ends with both characters wrecking each other’s life.
After being shot by Amy’s husband George (Joseph Lee), Danny is seen in the last minutes of the season struggling for his life in the hospital. Additionally, Amy shows a hint of compassion as she rests in bed next to Danny after losing everything.
Beef” was initially billed as a miniseries and creator Lee Sung Jin told Rolling Stone in April that he wanted the show “to have a conclusive feel just in case.” He added, “But there are a lot of ideas on my end to keep this story going. I think should we be blessed with a season two, there’s a lot of ways for Danny and Amy to continue. I have one really big general idea that I can’t really say yet, but I have three seasons mapped out in my head currently.”
However, in a separate interview with Elle, Jin said if the show does get renewed, that would mean saying goodbye to Amy and Danny. “Cards on the table, we did pitch this show as a limited anthology, so there is sort of a close-ended-ness to the story [of Danny and Amy],” he explained. “But, if given the opportunity, of course, I’d love to explore them further, because Danny and Amy, I love those characters. But yeah, by design, though, this a close-ended narrative.” As of now, Netflix hasn’t officially renewed “Beef” for a second season.
