'Ganglands' is poised to return with an even bigger turf war,.
'Ganglands,' also known as 'Braqueurs: La série,' is a French crime drama series released on Netflix on September 24, 2021. It follows the story of a robber and his protege who gets embroiled in a big trouble against the government and drug dealers.
Hamid Hlioua and Julien Leclercq created the series. Hamid served as one of the writers of the recently canceled TV series 'La Revolution,' while Leclercq served as a writer on a French thriller film called 'Sentinelle.'
The first season has six episodes in total, which is pretty short compared to other Netflix shows. If you feel like it was not enough to quench your thirst for action, then we have great news for you.
Yes, 'Ganglands' is officially coming back for a second season! Netflix France's Twitter account confirmed the renewal on November 22, 2021.

It is safe to say that Netflix is pleased with Gangland's performance on the platform. Although the streamer does not release its viewership data, according to Flixpatrol, the series reached Netflix's top 10 in numerous countries.
A statistic released by Netflix states that the series gained a total of 54.5 million watch hours between September 20-October 10. Now that is impressive!
There is no release date yet as of this writing. Netflix series often takes around one year gap before releasing new seasons. Hence, we can expect 'Ganglands' to return on the platform late next year, 2022. We will update this space once the official release date gets announced.
The cliffhanger ending of the first season left a lot of unanswered questions. Fans are eager to know what would happen to Medhi while on the loose with the teenage robber.
The final scenes of 'Ganglands' bring us five months after the turf war. A member from Morocco visits Saber, the new gang leader, who took over the business with his cousin, Sofia. The associate offers Saber to be part of his community in Morocco. But before he can leave, Sofia persuades Saber to forget Morocco and take over Antwerp docks instead. The plan is to expand their business to the whole of Europe from there. However, that means they have to prepare for a bigger war with other drug lords that run the place.
Before the credits roll, we see a masked Liana entering the hospital and scaring people with a gun. She rescues and handcuffs Mehdi. Liana will likely ask for his help in ruling the territory which Chris left. But since Sofia and Saber are planning to seize the same location, a bigger turf war is imminent.
We expect the main cast to return for 'Ganglands' season 2. Sami Bouajila will most likely reprise his role as Mehdi as well as Samuel Jouy as Tony, Nabiha Akkari as Sofia, Carlos Schram as Carlos, and Geert Van Rampelberg as Chris, among others.
While waiting for more updates for 'Ganglands' season 2, check out the official trailer for the first season in the meantime. We will update this space once the official trailer for 'Ganglands' season 2 is available.
