Eden is set to welcome subscribers again as the Spanish series has been reported to be a smash hit Welcome to Eden has reportedly already been renewed for a second season on Netflix, but we’re yet to hear anything about the future of the show from the streamer itself. Here’s what we know so far Welcome to Eden Season 2.
Over the years, Netflix has been home to some hugely popular Spanish shows such as elite and money robbery. Hoping to emulate some of that success is Newcomer Welcome to Edenwhich has already had a popular start in life on Netflix.
Created by Joaquín Górriz and Guillermo López, the series is produced by Brutal Media and shot in the scenic Spanish islands of Lanzarote and San Sebastián, and in the province of Teruel.
The series revolves around a group of influencers who are invited to a party on the remote island of Eden, but what at first seems like paradise soon turns out to be the home of a dangerous cult with a determination to change the world.
Welcome to Eden Season 2 Netflix renewal status
Netflix Official Renewal Status: Renewed (Last updated: 05/17/2022)
Before the release of Welcome to Edenwas reported by Spanish news agency Heraldo that Netflix has renewed the series for a second season;
The experience was entirely satisfactory, to the point that this area [Matarraña] will again be the setting for the second season, which will begin filming shortly. The recording of the 1 [season] took place between March 15th and April 30th last year with a technical team of 90 people that revolutionized the area, particularly Valderrobres, where they were based.
Please note: The above was translated from Spanish to English by Google. Any bad wording can be the result of a mistranslation.
The decision to renew the series before its release doesn’t come around very often and is usually reserved only for the originals that Netflix is confident will do well.
However, it must be noted that we are still waiting for Netflix to officially confirm the renewal through their various social media platforms. We’ve reached out to Netflix for comment and will update if we get any feedback.
Since the Spanish original was released worldwide on Netflix on May 6th, it has quickly become one of the most popular non-English dramas on the streaming service.
Welcome to Eden was only available to stream 3 days of the week that Netflix collected viewing data between May 2 and May 8, 2022. In that short span of time, the Spanish drama was watched a total of 25,820,000 hours and jumped straight to 2nd place in the non-English global top ten list.
Viewing dates for the drama’s second week on Netflix are expected to be released shortly, and we expect tens of millions more hours of viewing to come.
As for the regional top ten lists Welcome to Eden has enjoyed great popularity, making the top ten lists of 83 different countries, ranking 2nd in the US and 3rd in the UK respectively. Above all, Welcome to Eden is trending number one in Spain, his native language.
What to expect from a second season of Welcome to Eden?
When will Zoa escape?
Just when it looked like Zoa was about to flee the island, a brand new boat full of hopeful partygoers is brought to the island. One of the latest potential victims is Zoa’s sister Charly, who has no idea what lies ahead. Zoa now has the choice of leaving the island and saving herself, or standing by her sister Charly and protecting her at all costs. No one lands on the island by accident as all participants are invited individually. So, is Charly’s invitation a ploy to get Zoa to stay, or is there an even more sinister game at play?
Will Astrid be dethroned?
Astrid, along with her partner Erick, leads the cult on the island, but her power is challenged by a failed assassination attempt on Erick’s life. It is thanks to Isaac’s medical skills that Erick survives.
Astrid is still in control of the island, but if other island rebels try to make her move, will she be able to keep her power? It’s also unclear who stabbed Erick, and we’re expecting a shocking revelation in season two.
What is the machine discovered by Africa?
After breaking into Astrid and Erick’s home, Africa was able to gain access to a machine and, unaware of what it was doing, presses a button that activates an antenna on the island and sends a signal into space.
We’ve yet to figure out what the effect of pressing the button is, but did Astrid and Erick have access to potential aliens? Or is the antenna responsible for communicating with the true masterminds behind the creation of Eden?
Will Brenda try to kill other potential escapees?
Brenda, the island’s executioner, was already responsible for the deaths of Claudia, Judith and Aldo.
