Anyone who binge-watched all eight episodes of The One last week may now be completely engrossed in the show. I mean, who needs to watch more of the series when you’re obsessed? You may be wondering when more episodes will be released.
A British Netflix Original explores a matchmaking service that advertises DNA matching as a means to discover a life mate for anybody, with comparisons to Black Mirror for tone and atmosphere and Breaking Bad for plot ideas.
The One Season 2
The series, set “five minutes in the future” and based on a novel by John Marrs, is said to be available on Netflix. “We will never think of love and relationships in the same way again,” the show’s synopsis cries out.
Revolving around CEO Rebecca Webb (Hannah Ware) and how her technology affects real-life relationships, the series delves into both murder mysteries and relationship dramas. The first season barely touched on this deep subject, so it’s no surprise that viewers are anxious for more. So far, this is all the information we have on a potential second season of The One.
The One Season 2 Renewal Status
In a nutshell, no. ‘The One’s’ renewal for a second season has not been confirmed by the streaming giant just yet. Reportedly, Netflix purchased only eight episodes of the show; thus, production on a second season has not yet begun. On March 12, 2021, the series had its Netflix debut.
There has been no word yet on whether it will be back for a second season. Keeping up with Netflix’s announcements is something we will continue to do.
The One Season 2 Release Date
Season one of The One premiered on March 12, 2021, as previously mentioned. The eight episodes that make up this season run from thirty-eight to forty-four minutes in length. However, details on a second season have been tight-lipped. The first season did conclude on a cliffhanger, however, so there’s hope for further installments down the road.
Web series adaptations of novels include, among others, Thirteen Reasons Why, The Undoing, and The Sinner. And the results of this sort of work are plain to observe. Some have seen parallels between Black Mirror and The One. Another popular science fiction program that explores the impact of technology on people’s lives is The Black Mirror. Howard Overman created “Misfits,” which won the British Academy Television Award for Outstanding Drama Series in 2010.
At this point, all we can do is hope for the best as we eagerly await the arrival of the new season. Midway through 2024 is when we could anticipate the following season to premiere.

The One Season 2 Plot
After season one of The One, Matheus records Rebecca admitting to murdering Ben as part of his scheme against her. As luck would have it, a MatchDNA protestor materializes out of nowhere and kills Matheus, allowing Ware’s character to erase her statement before Detective Saunders gets their hands on it.
In the last scene, we see Rebecca order the death of Matheus’ murderer as other people in the show strive to learn more about their perfect matches and the ones they’re seeing. This sets up the plot for season 2 on Netflix. The showrunners have yet to determine if they will add depth to Rebecca’s character in season 2 of The One, but fans can expect her to become more cold-blooded and calculated.
The One Season 2 Trailer

The One Review
At the height of her fame, Rebecca finds herself entangled in an investigation into the murder of Ben Nasser (Amir El-Masry), an old lover and friend of hers. As secrets are revealed, the details of the probe become more apparent.
However, the script becomes more ambiguous. The show chronicles the lives of three significant “matches”: Rebecca and her Portuguese soulmate, Kate, a police officer, and her reserved match Sophia. Mark, a happily married journalist, is paired with Megan, played by Pallavi Sharda, making their match the most intriguing of all.
Some situations and relationships seem forced and manufactured due to the show’s fast-paced flow. The show’s idea is very compelling, often venturing into thrilling territory, supported by witty writing and outstanding performances, particularly from Zoë and Dimitri Leonidas (who portray Rebecca’s unfortunate business partner in crime, James).
What if a jealous woman endeavors to spy on the person her husband believes to be his soulmate? Is it possible that you have an attraction to more than one DNA strand? And what if, in the end, love isn’t the strongest anchor? Even if it doesn’t always succeed, “The One” attempts to address a lot of these concerns.
