What has the creator said about a potential season 2?

Speaking to Elle, creator Lee Sung Jin said that while Beef was originally pitched as a limited series, there’s room for further exploration.

“Cards on the table, we did pitch this show as a limited anthology, so there is sort of a close-ended-ness to the story [of Danny and Amy],” Jin said. “But, if given the opportunity, of course, I’d love to explore them further, because Danny and Amy, I love those characters. But yeah, by design, though, this [is] a close-ended narrative.”

Elaborating on what future seasons could look like, Jin explained his initial pitch featured “multiple other beefs and other character types to explore”.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, Jin said he had three seasons mapped out. “I think should we be blessed with a season two, there’s a lot of ways for Danny and Amy to continue. I have one really big general idea that I can’t really say yet, but I have three seasons mapped out in my head currently.”

Beef is available to stream on Netflix.
