New Heights Season 2: Renewed or Cancelled?

May 14, 2022

Created by Marianne Wendt, the Swiss drama series Neumatt is a gripping and passionate foray into a Swiss farming family. The story unfolds at the interface between town and country. After the death of his father, Michie returns to his small community on the outskirts of Zurich to help with the family business. His mother begins to have doubts, his sister is strongly opposed to the decision, and his brother doesn’t seem so sure about it.

When Michi takes the risk of investing in the already failed family business, he puts everything on the line and his life falls apart. The story is full of colorful characters, each with their own story to tell. The series is exciting, dynamic, passionate and familiar at the same time and invites you to return to your roots. After the first season full of ups and downs, you might already be curious where the second season will go. In this case we will keep you informed.

New Heights Season 2 Release Date

Season 1 of New Heights premiered worldwide on May 13, 2022 Netflix Premiere. Ahead of the worldwide release, the series was screened at the Zurich Film Festival on September 25, 2021. In its home country, Switzerland, the series was broadcast on September 26, 2022 on SRF’s main channel. The first season consists of eight episodes with an average running time of 47 minutes per episode. Now let’s speculate about the possibilities of a second season.

The creator and her team haven’t revealed anything about a second season yet. Whether a second season is possible or not remains speculation for the time being. Looking at the critics’ engagement, however, the series did not disappoint the critics with a grounded narrative with complex and nuanced characters. Farmer suicides have remained an emotional socio-psychological issue for decades. This series is a reminder of the importance of engaging with the everyday struggles of ordinary people, whether heroes or villains in their own circumstances.

Following the popularity of shows like Yellowstone, ventures that address the problems of modern agriculture are gaining traction with audiences in the United States and around the world. Therefore, after its fame on the national stage, the series had just as much potential on streaming giant Netflix. The series moves at the interface between town and village as well as family and individual. It also contains some universal truths. That’s why there weren’t many polarities at reception either. Looking ahead to the finale, there is some scope for the series to be revived for a second season.

In the finale, Michi decides to give life on the farm another try and breaks up with Joel indefinitely. Katherina’s dreams lead her to Martin’s trailer and although she cannot sell the farm, she can go wherever she wants when Michi is at the farm. One can only speculate about Sarah’s end, since she is estranged from Angie and her family. However, the series will initially be produced by Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen (SRF) and the producers will probably have the final say.

Production on the first season began in 2020, and with no news of a renewal as of May 2022, it seems unlikely that the creators will move forward with the project. Marianne Wendt in particular seems to feel extremely comfortable with compact and hard-hitting stories, since both her previous work Eden and the one she co-produced The Irish Crime were limited broadcasts. She may not feel comfortable within the framework of a longer narrative. Therefore, it seems very unlikely that New Heights Season 2 will ever be produced.
