Even though the first season of the Netflix original thriller “Hit & Run” just came out on August 6, it is already one of the most popular new shows on the service. It’s in the top 10 most-watched shows on Netflix, and there are probably a lot of people who are already interested in a possible Season 2. Here we will discuss all about Hit and Run Season 2 Updates 2022: Everything We Know So Far!
In the series, Lior Raz plays Segev, an Israeli man who is horrified when his wife Danielle (Kaelen Ohm) is killed in a hit-and-run accident. But his surprise at Danielle’s death is nothing compared to what he feels when he starts to look into who killed her and why. Segev finds out that Danielle’s death was not an accident, and as his investigation takes him to New York City, where Danielle lived, he also realises that the woman he married was not the person he thought she was.
Season 1 tells a story with a lot of crazy turns and shocking reveals. When it’s over, there are still a lot of questions that need to be answered. So, when could a possible Season 2 come out, what characters could come back, and where could the story go? Let’s look at what we know so far about Season 2 of “Hit & Run.”
Is Hit & Run returning? Whenever?
Hit & Run, a geopolitical espionage thriller co-created, executive produced, and starring Lior Raz of Fauda, has been cancelled by Netflix after one season. The first season ended on a huge cliffhanger, thus this announcement comes a full month and a half after the premiere.
Hit & Run, which also starred Sanaa Lathan, Kaelen Ohm, Moran Rosenblatt, and Gregg Henry, was liked by both critics and audiences. Both official reviews and audience feedback gave the movie 70% or higher ratings. But it costs a lot to make the sprawling drama, whose first season was filmed in New York and Israel because of the pandemic.
Because of the Covid shutdown, it took three years to make Season 1, which has nine episodes. It came out on August 6, and the next week, it was No. 8 on Nielsen’s list of the 10 most-streamed songs. It was the only time the thriller showed up on the overall weekly chart, which was recently topped by Netflix originals like Outer Banks and Virgin River.
Raz and Avi Issacharoff, who made and ran the Netflix show Fauda, along with Dawn Prestwich and Nicole Yorkin, who made the Amazon comedy Z:
Showrunners Prestwich and Yorkin have said in interviews that they hoped the show would run for at least two or three seasons. This is because the kidnapping at the end of Season 1 sent Segev on a new path.
Issacharoff, Raz, Prestwich, and Yorkin all served as executive producers, along with Kimberlin Belloni, Peter Principato, and Itay Reiss of Artists First and David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman, and Laurie Zaks of Mandeville Films.
