White Lines Season 2: All That of Which You Are Unaware

Grit-glam White Lines, the Netflix smash set in Ibiza, had us fascinated from the start, but season two has been canceled.

On 17 August, the Following Was Updated

We've said it before and we'll say it again: sunshine, sex, and a good, old-fashioned murder mystery make for a lethal combination of must-watch television. It's understandable, then, that we fell for Netflix's thriller White Lines hook, line, and sinker. And it's also understandable that we're enraged that the highly anticipated second season has been canceled.

Yours sincerely dubbed the show “intriguing, fascinating, and enormously silly,” the first serving of the show was released earlier this summer to the delight of everyone on lockdown.

Jumping between a 20-year timeline of Manchester drug raves and Ibizan party culture, the series followed Zoe (Laura Haddock) as she attempted to piece together what happened to her brother Axel (Tom Rhys Harries), a want to be DJ who was assassinated on the Balearic Island in highly suspicious circumstances two decades prior.

While the ten-parter did conclude (sort of) in the season one conclusion, we were told that additional episodes were on the way. Promised. As such, we were devastated when Daniel Mays, who played Marcus Ward on Line Of Duty, revealed that the show would not be renewed for a second season.

“In light of recent press reports and for those who have inquired on here, it is with a heavy heart that I post that the White Lines season 2 ship has well and well sailed,” he said on Instagram.

“I want to express my heartfelt gratitude, respect, and appreciation for the ride of a lifetime. I'd like to express my gratitude to the fantastic cast and crew, as well as to all the incredible fans who have been watching from across the world. We are eternally grateful for your support of the show. As a result, THANK YOU! Marcus, you were my favorite.”

Naturally, not everyone was a fan of White Lines. Indeed, Rotten Tomatoes gave the series a rating of 63%, with several critics claiming that the non-linear timeline was difficult to follow. Having said that, the series garnered a positive response from Netflix fans, earning a slot in the UK's Top 10 for several weeks.

If you missed it the first time around, you may still watch the show in its entirety on the streaming site.

As previously documented, White Lines provided ample opportunity for hedonism, cocaine, and sun-dappled violence. And we can't wait to get our hands on another batch of binge-worthy episodes.

Here's all we know so far about the upcoming second season of this year's breakout drug drama.

White Lines Season 2

Álex Pina Will Be Creating Season 2 of White Lines

The creator of the critically acclaimed Spanish crime series Money Heist (La Casa de Papel in Spanish) will continue to direct White Lines in season two. Pina collaborated with executive producers Andy Harries and Sharon Hughff of The Crown to bring season one's powerhouse concept to reality. Netflix scooped it up shortly after the producers' initial meeting, and they're now on a roll.

“”It's an incredible accomplishment [to collaborate],” Harries told Deadline.com. “It proves that it is possible to create entertainment for both Spanish and English-speaking viewers without sacrificing quality.”

White Lines Season 2 Will Still Be Filmed on Location

A large part of White Lines' appeal is that it presents a series of sunny, sepia-toned Ibizan landscapes that resonate wonderfully with our collective lockdown yearning right now.

“Shows that are sunny, bright, and filled with lovely vistas are always crucial,” producer Harries explains. “[…] Because people are unable to travel to the Balearic Islands at the moment, this is the next best thing.”

“I am aware that recces for season two are taking place; they are location scouting, if and when that occurs – or that occurred prior to the global epidemic,” the show's star Rhys Harries tells LAD Bible.

“However, I believe that everyone would be eager to return and experience Alex [Pinaworld ]'s again, because it is so outlandish, colourful, and slightly bonkers. It's simply a pleasant spot to spend some time.”

The time-traveling thriller is primarily reliant on drugs and depravity.
White Lines season 2's plot could take place in the past.
When asked where the White Lines sequel could go next in season two, Rhys Harries indicated that scriptwriters may revisit a previously unexplored period in which his character, Manchester DJ Axel, and his band of teen buddies establish a firm foothold on the Ibizan club scene.

“There are a number of years on the island where we don't see Axel – my character – or the younger cast members forming their sort of clubs,” he explains. “Because I owned five clubs at the time of my demise, there is a world in which we may investigate those lost years.”

However, given that creator Pina is known for his fondness for non-linear storytelling — season one of White Lines surely bounces between time zones frequently, necessitating the abandonment of your phone – the sky is the limit for where the plot of season two may lead us.

It's a murder mystery with a Balearic glitzy twist.

White Lines Season 2

The Full Cast Is Likely to Return for the Second Series

Without giving anything away, White Lines' first season concluded with a surprising reveal and a classic cliffhanger. Season two will almost certainly continue the storey of Axel's killer, as revealed in the season one finale: but will they receive the justice they deserve? So much remains unresolved.

With that in mind, we can anticipate the return of the White Lines' main gang for season two: Zoe (Haddock), Boxer (Nuno Lopes), Marcus (Daniel Mays), Kika (Marta Milans), Oriol (Juan Diego Botto), Andreu (Pedro Casablanc), Conchita (Belén López), Anna (Angela Griffin), David (Laurence Fox), and Jenny (Juan Diego Bot (Tallulah Evans).

While Rhys Harries' character Axel is technically dead, the plot's time-jumping premise ensures that he will almost certainly appear in season two: “I'm hoping they don't go without me again!” he jokes.

Again, this implies that the new season will either rewind in time or continue with the current plot, or – more likely – will focus on a combination of the two.

Coronavirus and Social Distancing May Have an Impact

As Rhys Harries previously stated, the current coronavirus outbreak implies that both scouting and filming for the upcoming White Lines series may be postponed while the health issue plays out.

Angela Griffin remarked that if the show were to follow events in real-time, they would have to seriously reconsider her character Anna's fondness for organizing sex parties for Ibiza's elite.

“There are so many things that need to change in order for us to do another season,” Griffin tells the Metro. “If we can get over all of those social distancing issues, because, as you know, Anna's life is not about social distancing; she needs people to be able to touch one another.”

There Is No Release Date Yet

But of course, we’ll stay tuned on the matter and keep you posted as soon as we know more.

White Lines season 2

Will There Be a White Lines Season 3?

Netflix producers had always planned on a three-season run of White Lines, according to industry insiders at Deadline.com. So rest assured, there’s still plenty of death, drugs, and debauchery to come on the horizon.

In the meantime, remind yourself of the brilliance of the show overall with a look at the season one trailer, below. Sunshine and murder here we come…

In Summation

The first season concluded wonderfully, with the shocking revelation that Anna murdered Axel in order to prevent him from telling Marcus about their relationship.

Ironically, she enlisted Marcus' assistance in murdering their friend, with Marcus knocking Axel over with his car before completing the murder with a harsh whack to the skull.

 

Laura Haddock, Nuno Lopes, Daniel Mays, Marta Milans, Juan Diego Botto, Pedro Casablanc, Belén López, Angela Griffin, Laurence Fox, and Tallulah Evans are all expected to return for a second season of the show.

 

Which provides a lot of room for the programme to go in the future, either continuing in the present day or going more into the past and the gang's time with Axel.
