First Murder season 2 | Speculations on release date, cast and latest news

*Warning – contains spoilers for First Kill Season 1*

The new Netflix series First Kill may have just debuted, but fans are already hungry for more episodes of the teenage vampire series, especially after it ended on an almighty cliffhanger.

Juliette and Calliope are estranged, Theo is now a vampire, and Oliver has taken him in, with the suggestion that he will use him in a war of revenge against his family.

That’s a lot to take in, and with so many questions yet to be answered, fans will be desperate for news of a second season.

But has the series been renewed, and when can fans expect to see more of the Fairmonts and Burns on the streamer? Read on for everything you need to know about First Kill Season 2 on Netflix.

Has First Kill been renewed for season 2?

First Kill hasn’t been renewed yet, but since it only came out this month, we wouldn’t be too worried.

There’s still plenty of time for the streamer to pick up the series, and after a strong performance in Netflix’s global top 10, we’d say there’s a good chance we’ll be heading back to Savannah once again. We will keep this page updated as we have news.

When will First Kill Season 2 be released?

As we don’t yet have confirmation that First Kill has been renewed for season 2, it’s hard to say exactly when it will be released on Netflix.

If the series is back in service soon and season 2 goes into production with a quick turnaround, we could expect to see the show again in about a year, so in the summer of 2023 – however, for the moment everything is up in the air.

First Kill cast – Who will be back for season 2?

If the series returns, we’d expect the entire central cast to be back – there are still plenty of unresolved story threads, with Theo becoming a vampire and Oliver’s vow of revenge. Here’s a full list of the main cast members we expect to return for Season 2:

  • Sarah Catherine Hook as Juliette Fairmont
  • Imani Lewis as Calliope Burns
  • Elizabeth Mitchell as Margot Fairmont
  • Will Swenson as Sebastian Fairmont
  • Aubin Wise as Talia Burns
  • Jason R Moore as Jack Burns
  • Gracie Dzienny as Elinor Fairmont
  • Phillip Mullings Jr as Theo Burns
  • Dylan McNamara as Oliver Fairmont
  • Dominic Goodman as Apollo Burns

Is there a trailer for First Kill season 2?

There’s no trailer available yet, as the series has yet to be renewed – however, as soon as we have any news or new images, we’ll make sure to keep this page updated. For now, you can rewatch the Season 1 trailer here.
