La Révolution has just landed on Netflix and season two could be a possibility as fans have enjoyed the insight into 18th century France. The series follows Joseph Guillotin (played by Amir El Kacem) in the year 1787 and he was a member of King Louis XVI’s States General Assembly. The French Revolution plays out in a very different way in this series, as a virus causes anarchy amongst the aristocrats.
Will there be another series of La Revolution?
The first season of La Révolution has just landed on Netflix and viewers were interested to see the reinvented history of the French Revolution for themselves.
This is not a series for the faint-hearted as when a Blue Blood virus takes over the aristocrats, they involuntarily start killing the common people.
Fans have enjoyed the series so far and many have said it is the one horror series worth watching over the Halloween period.
One fan said on Small-Screen.co.uk: “So, this new Netflix show is a really strange and I would argue fascinating retelling of the French revolution.
“It’s a horrific version involving Aristocrat zombies. Who wouldn’t want to watch something like this at Halloween time? I know I would, and I did.
“I binge-watched the whole show in one evening, and now I can’t wait for season two.”

Other fans have said they enjoyed the idea of taking a real-life historical event and adapting it for a thriller or horror genre.
At this moment in time, it is too early to say if season two has been given the green light, but fans should hopefully hear more news in the coming weeks.
If a new series were to go ahead, it is unlikely to air before the end of 2021, so fans will have some waiting to do before season two comes out.
Fans are hoping it gains enough interest to warrant a second instalment, as they are keen to see how the historical events can be changed up with plenty of imagination.
Some viewers have said the series may only work as a standalone one-season show, so there may not be much of the story left to tell.
The series stars Vikings actress Gaia Weiss as Marianne, a fierce fighter who joins forces with others to stand her ground.
Doudou Masta plays Oka, Amélia Lacquemant plays Madeleine and Lionel Erdogan plays Albert Guillotin. Hopefully, most of the main cast will reprise their roles in season two.
The first season came out on October 16 and fans have already left reviews explaining whether the series is worth watching.
One fan said on Ready Steady Cut: “None of this is subtle or particularly interested in being clever; you can’t have your show’s plot points include literal blue blood, immortality via occultism, and an insatiable hunger for human flesh and still expect the well-known historical aristocrats being depicted to get thoughtful biographies. “It’s a grandiose and profoundly silly bit of revisionist-history-as-metaphor with all the facile pleasures of uncomplicated genre tropes and excellent production design courtesy of a trio of cinematographers.”

The series has been compared to the Korean show Kingdom on Netflix, which also gives a post-apocalyptic look at a political conspiracy.
Kingdom’s second season was released in March 2020, so there is a chance this French series will also be given a second chance.
Fans have been blown away so far, with one saying on Twitter: “For anyone having @netflix and who liked the Korean show Kingdom, there’s a French show called La Révolution (The Revolution).
“The two original writers said themselves they love Kingdom and wanted to encourage the genre in a historical context! I’m halfway and it’s good!”
Another fan said: “The first episode of La Révolution on Netflix is absolutely incredible. I loved it so much. It’s so dark and eery, the soundtrack is amazing and the actors are all great. I’m hooked!”
Some viewers have criticised the series for not giving an accurate account of the French Revolution, but they have been reminded the aim of the series is not to be historically accurate.
One fan said: “As one can see, there are significant departures from history throughout La Révolution. Bear in mind that the series makes no claim to be presenting accurate history, however, and its aim is to entertain, not educate. So If you want to learn about the actual revolution, grab a book.”
Many fans have said they were hooked by the first season, so there is hope that with enough interest it will be given the green light for season two.
There is no indication of when production would start on season two due to the coronavirus pandemic and ever-changing restrictions, but fans can hope the second instalment would land in early 2022 if they are lucky.
