“Baby Reindeer” Season 2: Will it Happen?

For those following the Netflix series ‘Baby Reindeer’, it seems to have sprung from nowhere. However, for Richard Gadd, the main actor and creator of the series, it has been a lived reality for several years. The plot narrates Gadd’s personal experiences of getting stalked by a woman over the years, a circumstance deeply unsettling in itself and one that evokes past trauma from a sexual assault he had suffered. The series is noted for its thrilling content embedded with dark humor, earning comparisons with Michaela Coel’s critically acclaimed ‘I May Destroy You’ aired on HBO in 2020.

The Demand for Sequels

Michaela Coel’s series wrapped up its storyline with such unimpeachable deftness that demands for a sequel came to naught, as its limited nature was highlighted. These echoes are now being heard for ‘Baby Reindeer’. Similar to its thematic predecessor, ‘Baby Reindeer’ was also conceived as a limited series and hence might not see a second season.

Ambiguities About ‘Baby Reindeer’ Season 2

Netflix has not categorically mentioned the conclusion of the series. However, ‘Baby Reindeer’ is widely perceived as a limited series, and it is unlikely that this notion will be altered. Speaking to Tudum, Richard Gadd elucidated his artistic goal to capture the complex facets of the human condition, saying “All I ever wanted to do was capture something complicated about the human condition. That we all make mistakes. That no person is ever good or bad. That we are all lost souls looking for love in our own weird way.”

The transformation of Gadd’s original idea for a stage show into an independent entity is also noteworthy. He recollects the inception of the idea during a long, restless night, envisioning a compelling opening with overlapping voicemails streamed around a stage, reflecting disparate emotional states, mirroring madness – his stalker’s and his own.
