It’s been almost four years since Flinch was released on Netflix. Still, fans are patiently waiting to learn more about Flinch Season 2. The first season aired in 2019, and fans loved the concept of how the comedy game show could get painful for its contestants. Many cry out for new people to discover the scariest and most unexpected events. But will Netflix return with Flinch Season 2? Let’s see!
Netflix’s reality game show is based on people’s natural reactions. In the show, the contestants are confronted with an unexpected or scary event that forces them to recoil. Each episode is set in the hills of Ireland or on a remote farm. There the hosts test the bravest and foolish people. The participants who recoil more, face painful consequences. However, the one who recoils the least is declared the winner. In the show, the hosts decide who represents the game.
Flinch Season 2: Has it been renewed?
For the first time, Netflix released a game show that aired on Friday, May 3, 2019. However, fans of Flinch are eager to know if the show will return with a second season. But the giant streaming platform has yet to announce the future of the show. Typically, it takes Netflix nearly two months to decide on the show’s future. Now it’s been almost four years and the massive streaming platform has not yet revealed the total viewership the show has received.
But the show didn’t do well. It received mixed reactions from the critics. It received a rating of 4.3/10 on IMDb and 40% on Rotten Tomatoes. But the Google users love the show and it won 73% there. So the chances of the show are pretty low, but it hasn’t been canceled or extended yet. So anything can happen.
Is there a spin-off?
Although the future of the show remained in limbo, it gained popularity in Russia. So in January 2022, Stellify Media shared the news about the Russian adaptation of the show. Sony Pictures Television, however, distributed the show instead of Netflix and broadcast it on Russian broadcaster STS. Surprisingly, the Russian audience really liked the show and got a positive response there. But is it mean for Netflix to say goodbye?
Flinch Season 2: What Happens When It Returns?
As of now, the streaming platform has yet to announce the future of the show. However, if the show returns for its second run, we expect it to follow the same pattern. Eight contestants will take part in complex yet hilarious tasks. However, participants should prepare to avoid being distracted by mice, air horns, flamethrowers and electrocution.
They should strive not to flinch, and the contestant who flinches the least will win, but those who flinch the most will suffer the consequences. When the show returns, hosts Lloyd Griffith, Desiree Burch and Seann Walsh will also return. Stay tuned. TechRadar247 will keep you informed.
