Now that Red Rose is available on Netflix, following its initial BBC Three release last year, fans are wondering whether a second season of the teen horror series could be in the offing.


The first may have tied up most of its loose ends as it came to a close, but there is still certainly scope for more for these characters and the deadly app behind their misfortune.

But will there be a second season of Red Rose, when would it be released and who of the cast would be back to star in it?

As of February 2023 we've currently had no word as to whether there will be a second season of Red Rose or not. However, with the series having just launched on Netflix and picking up significant additional interest following its BBC Three release last year, we imagine it could certainly play a factor in whether the show returns or not.

As for the story, there are certainly places that it could go if the show were to return. There were still a number of questions left unanswered at the end of the season, with a cliffhanger ending that suggests the app is still out there.

When would Red Rose season 2 be released?

It's hard to say when a second season of Red Rose would be released, as the series hasn't been officially renewed for season 2 yet.

However, we would imagine that the earliest we could see a new season would likely be towards the start of 2024, if the new season went into production soon.

We'll keep this page updated as and when any further news becomes available.

Red Rose cast - who would be back for season 2?

Given the ending of Red Rose season 1, there is a chance that a second season would focus on an entirely new group of friends getting caught up with the app.

However, assuming that the same group would be back next time around, we'd certainly imagine that Amelia Clarkson would be back as Wren, while Natalie Blair, Ellis Howard and the rest of the group would also likely be back.

One character we wouldn't expect to make a return is Rochelle 'Roch' Mason, played by Isis Hainsworth, after she was murdered.

Here's a full list of the cast members who could return for a second season:

  • Amelia Clarkson as Wren Davies
  • Natalie Blair as Ashley Banister
  • Ellis Howard as Antony Longwell
  • Ali Khan as Tariq 'Taz' Sadiq
  • Ashna Rabheru as Jaya Mahajan
  • Harry Redding as Noah Royston
  • Natalie Gavin as Rachel Davies
  • Samuel Anderson as Vinny
  • Adam Nagaitis as Rick Bennett
  • Harrie Hayes as The Gardener
