Status for season 2
The series is NOT renewed for a new season. It has been cancelled and there will not be a season 2
Reckoning Season 2 is likely canceled since the story wrapped up and gave the audience a satisfactory conclusion. Reckoning was first released in New Zealand in 2019. After doing reasonably well there, it was made available on Netflix to the US audience in May 2020.
It’s important to note that the show was dubbed as miniseries or limited series. This means that it is designed to be 1 season only. It is not uncommon for limited series to go beyond season 1, but it means that a limited series has smaller chances of getting renewed. The entire story was nicely summed up in 10 episodes. As a result, there seems no plans for a Reckoning Season 2.
Since the show has now been released over 1.5 years ago, and we still have not received any official renewal information from Netflix, it is safe to say that the series has ended / is canceled, with no season 2.
In the starting episodes, Reckoning stirred intrigue but with time, it ran out of originality. It did turn out to be a pretty good watch with bursts of suspense but the characters are too familiar to render another story and another season. Season 1 ended with our cop finally managing to trace his prey after missing many past coincidences. All the dots were connected and all the mysteries solved. With nothing much left to explore, it’s highly unlikely that Reckoning Season 2 will be announced.
It scored a 6.6 rating on IMDB and only a 59% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. Those are good ratings but might not have been enough to pick Netflix's interests to request a season 2.
The series explores the darkest corners of the male psyche through the eyes of two fathers, one of whom is a serial killer and the other a cop. Like most men, Leo and Mike try to do what’s best for the people they love, the families they protect. But as both struggle to suppress their inner demons, the murder of a local teenager sets them on a course of mutual destruction that will emanate through every facet of their quiet, suburban community.
