*Warning: This article contains spoilers for Beef season 1.*


After cleaning up at this year's Emmys and Golden Globes, it feels only a matter of time before Netflix confirms that Beef season 2 is happening following multiple reports that it's in the works.

"I feel like there are so many paths," creator Lee Sung Jin said in an interview with Deadline on where the show could go next.

"It could stay limited — it was a very close-ended story, for sure. But if Netflix wanted to continue, it could also be anthology. It could be many things. It’s up to the great algorithm. We’re all waiting to hear."

Read on for everything we know so far about a potential Beef season 2.

According to Deadline, the team behind it are hoping to head into production "by late summer or fall".

Therefore, we wouldn't expect to see any new episodes until at least spring 2025.

Who could star in a potential Beef season 2?

It's been reported (via Deadline) that Charles Melton (May December) and Cailee Spaeny (Priscilla) will play one couple, and Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler) and Anne Hathaway (Interstellar) will play the other.

Stay tuned for a confirmation and further cast additions.

What could happen in a potential Beef season 2?

Season 2 will reportedly follow two couples who are beefing, but that's all we know at the moment.

Season 1 spoilers ahead.

The first season starred Ali Wong and Steven Yeun as Amy and Danny respectively, who first locked horns when one nearly hit the other in a store carpark.

But in the finale, they laid down their pitchforks and took their first real steps towards tackling their respective emotional wounds – and all it took was a day-and-a-half stranded in the LA hills and some poison berries. Who knew?!

As they drifted in and out of consciousness, their seemingly impenetrable walls finally came down, allowing them to speak candidly about their fears and anxieties for the first time in their lives. It was a breakthrough moment for both of them, with Amy and Danny lighter on their feet after opening up to one another.

Miraculously, they survived their berry unpleasant ordeal and found the strength to hobble back to civilisation, but en route they were accosted by George, who shot Danny.

The season wrapped up with Yeun's character in hospital on life support, with Amy by his side. The last shot we see is of her climbing onto his bed and holding onto Danny, silently willing him to wake up.

But with a potential season 2 moving onto a new story, as reported, will we ever find out what happened to both of them?

"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]," creator Lee Sung Jin told ELLE.

"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 a close-ended narrative."

He added other seasons may explore "multiple other beefs and other character types".
