Zero Chill Season 2 Renewal Status:
Zero Chill Season 2 has yet to be confirmed by Netflix. However, considering that the story is still incomplete, we can expect there will be some announcement for the renewal of the series. There is no news about the second season of Zero Chill as of yet. Generally, Netlfix takes a lot less time than other distributors or productions to announce the renewal status of any Netflix Original series. Also, the first 28-30 days after a show’s release is the time where the production decides whether to renew the series or not.
This decision is based on the popularity of the show and the public demand for a sequel. However, the production also has to consider many other factors such as whether the cast members will rejoin or how many more seasons they will need to complete the story. We also have to consider the factor that the teenage drama series “Free Reign”, created by the minds behind Zero Chill, took more than six months to announce the news of its renewal. So, it is uncertain how long we have to wait for the news on season 2, but it will most likely be announced by autumn 2021.
What to Expect From Zero Chill Season 2?
The first season focused on Mac and Kayla’s sibling rivalry as well as each of them trying to prove themselves. Mac tries to bond with his teammates and suffers the bullying from others. And Kayla struggles to achieve her dreams in a new place. However, at the end of the first season, Kayla’s parents realize that she has both talent and passion for becoming a successful figure skater, so they both decide to support her dreams.
Zero Chill Season 2 will delve further into the lives and continue following their struggles as each of them fulfilling their dreams. They have already proven themselves in the first season. So, in season 2, more opportunities will await them that will further help on their journey. The story will also revolve around the renewed friendship between the main characters, as they support each other to overcome their personal challenges.
