This article discusses the possibility of Copenhagen Cowboy Season 2 and the renewed or canceled status of the show. It contains spoilers for the first season.

Copenhagen Cowboy is the latest work for the small screen from a bizarre filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refnsequel to the 2019 miniseries Too old to die young and several high-profile feature films, including Drive, Only God forgivesand The neon demon. The show, which is now airing on netflixis a macabre noir dreamscape about a young woman named Miu (Angela Bundalovic) who navigates the Danish underworld as a somewhat supernatural angel of vengeance.

Here is a quote from our review to give you an idea:

The squealing of the pigs mentioned above is a recurring idea here, the sows punctuating moments of sex and violence, blurring the depravity of human behavior with the natural exhortations of ravenous animals. Are we the pigs, lazily gobbling up whatever we’re given to eat, or are we the people, ignoring the yelps of our captive food until we’re ready to slaughter and eat it? Hard to say. Anyway, here we are somewhere, right next to the possibly magical protagonist, vicious gangsters, delusional and cruel women trying to underpay for miracle conceptions, and lost and paperless hostages, stripped of identity and respect. All of humanity is here in one way or another, but it’s not always easy to find, and you won’t always be grateful for the discovery when it comes.

While Refn rarely deals with sequels and follow-ups (outside of the Pusher trilogy that made its name outside of its native Denmark), there’s plenty of room for a continuation here, and fans are rightly wondering about the likelihood of a second season. Here’s everything we know.

Will there be a season 2 of Copenhagen Cowboy?

Renewal status: to be confirmed

As of this writing, Netflix has not officially renewed or canceled Copenhagen Cowboy. As always, they’ll be waiting to get a feel for important metrics like hours watched, especially in the first two weeks.

As with all of Refn’s work, this is a deliberately surreal spectacle that will absolutely divide audiences, and while some will lashed out at his obvious artistry, others will find him baffling and frustrating. The streaming giant is highly unlikely to make huge numbers, which would suggest the chances of a second season are unlikely.

However, Netflix must have known what they were getting into, and there’s a chance they value the artistic output of an author like Refn more than the numbers of a hit but more mainstream show. The first season ends up greatly expanding the scope of the plotso there is certainly artistic justification for the renewal, and as Refn expressed to Cineuropa.org“We’ve written a treatment, so let’s see. It wouldn’t bother me at all.

We’ll keep this article updated with more information as we get it.
