Freud (Robert Finster) becomes involved in a murder investigation when a grievously injured woman is brought to him for aid, ultimately passing away soon after.

With help from psychic medium Fleur Salomé (Ella Rumpf) and police officer Alfred Kiss (Georg Friedrich), he begins to look into who caused the woman's death, uncovering a conspiracy in the process.

What could happen in a potential Freud season 2?

Without giving too much away, the first season of Freud offers answers on the murderous conspiracy at its core, so a second season has the potential to branch off in a completely different direction.

As Freud sets up his own medical practice, he will encounter plenty of patients with interesting stories to tell, any one of which could launch him into his next big investigation.


Who is in the cast of Freud?

The cast of Netflix's Freud is comprised largely of Austrian actors, including Robert Finster (Walking on Sunshine), Ella Rumpf (Raw) and Georg Friedrich (Wild Mouse) in the lead roles of, respectively, Sigmund Freud, Fleur Salomé and Alfred Kiss.
