In the United States, the Italian horror drama “Curon” made its debut on Netflix. In this psychological thriller, strange things are happening in a village that feels like it’s been cursed. The series, which has been compared to “Dark” and “Ragnarok,” has everything needed to attract viewers from the very first episode. If you’ve already watched the entire first season of “Curon,” you’re probably wondering whether or not there will be more. Continue reading!
Curon Season 2 Release Date
On June 10, 2020, all seven episodes of Curon were uploaded to Netflix. There has been no confirmation of a second season from the producers as of yet. If you, like many other readers, are wondering when the next installment of the series will be released, here’s the deal: Curon ends on a decent note, although there is clearly room to continue the plot. Ultimately, Netflix will determine whether or not to continue the series based on viewership and ratings.
Nonetheless, the positive reception of the pilot season raises expectations for future installments. If we have to make an educated guess, we’d say fresh episodes will be aired sometime in 2023.
Daria (Margherita Morchio) and Mauro Raina (Federico Russo) have traveled back to their mother’s little hamlet of Curon in Northern Italy, where they say they felt an unsettling presence. Anna Raina (Valeria Bilello), the mother of the twins, ran away from home when she was pregnant with them seventeen years ago, after the loss of her own mother. The trio reaches the family hotel, which has been deserted for some time. After receiving a chilly reception, it becomes clear that no one, not even Anna’s own father Thomas (Luca Lionello), wants her and the kids back in town. In fact, the twins are keen to return to Milan, where they were born.
After a rough start to the school year, Daria makes friends with Micki Asper (Juju Di Domenico), the daughter of her instructor. Giulio (Giulio Brizzi), Micki’s brother, hears rumors that his sister might be a lesbian and confronts Daria and Micki because he cannot accept it. Albert Asper (Alessandro Tedeschi), the father of Micki and Giulio, also appears to have unfinished business with Anna Raina. Micki suffers from the betrayal of her confidence by her former best friend Lukas (Luca Castellano) and the rejection of her former social circle.
Anna’s reappearance is explained by the recurring nightmares she’s having concerning the events leading up to her mother’s death, which Daria and Mauro discover. Anna’s mother was murdered in the dream by a person who resembled her and then turned to point the gun at her. They can’t help but end up at the lake in town. The twins go looking for Anna after she suddenly vanishes. After some traumatic occurrences, they figure out what happened to their grandmother and learn the truth about the lake in town.

Season two will have additional uncertainty and drama thanks to the spirits that mimic living people by taking on their appearance.
Curon Season 1 Review
The promotion of a show like Curon is a major challenge. Netflix’s latest mystery drama, dubbed the Italian version of ‘Dark,’ is, unfortunately, the latest in a long series of casualties that will probably disappoint after raising fan expectations to new heights and then falling short. We’ve seen it time and time again with popular shows, including all those mystery box shows towards the end of the 2000s that were supposed to be the next Lost but ultimately failed to gain traction.
But the characters are interesting enough to keep watching, and the story begins to develop into a family drama in the second act rather than the straight horror or mystery it seemed to be promising at the outset. Daria and Mauro do a good job of keeping you interested in the story, and Anna is believable as the frustrated mother trying to make meaning of her situation.
The dark sequences are brilliantly lit, and there is some fascinating imagery involving wolves that relates thematically and narratively to what occurs. They conjure up a small flash of lightning to illuminate a character’s face or two but otherwise leave the scene in pitch blackness for maximum unease. The series’ high-quality sound design is in harmony with the series’ best scene, which features a wolf in a cave.
Even if there is a decent mystery at the show’s center, viewers may be dissuaded by the lack of closure and the underwhelming ending, which ends on a huge cliffhanger. It’s not flawless, and there are some stutters here and there, but Curon is fun to try if you’re looking for something unusual and exciting.
