Netflix’s Unbelievable is based on a true story revolving around 18-year-old Marie who is brutally raped and then later doubted by the police and her family when she files a report.
To make matters worse, Marie is even charged for filing a false report by the detectives who made her recant her original report in the first place.
Back in Colorado, Detectives Grace Rasmussen and Karen Duvall cross paths while investigating a series of cases similar to Marie’s, leading them to believe they might be on the trail of a serial rapist.
Real-life crimes make perfect adaptations for movies and TV, and Netflix’s eight-episode stint of Unbelievable mesmerized fans while leaving them horrified at the same time. With many fans now wondering if there will ever be an Unbelievable season 2, read on to find out all we know of the matter.
Will there be an Unbelievable Season 2?
Netflix’s Unbelievable required only 1 season and 8 episodes to tell its tale. It was produced as a limited series and was never intended to go beyond one season because you can’t follow up a true story with a script. In Layman’s terms, there will definitely not be a season 2 for Unbelievable.
The most that fans can expect could be an anthology series where each episode tells a new tale. Showrunner Susannah Grant explains that the case behind unbelievable had some excellent journalism and documentation behind it, and to come across a similar case might not be easy, if at all possible.
Here are some of the tweets by fans in support of the show:
The first 15 min of #unbelievablenetflix should be mandatory watching for all the assholes who always say “why didn’t she report it!” when it comes to rape victims.

If you have the guts to face how women who report sexual violence are treated by law enforcement, how they are humiliated, antagonized and abandoned by the legal system, and how sometimes it takes women to bring justice to women, please watch #unbelievablenetflix
