‘Capitani’ is a crime drama series originally from Luxembourg (a small European country bordered by Belgium, France, and Germany), which found another place in Netflix’s ever-expanding list of entertaining TV shows. The series follows a detective named Luc Capitani, who heads up to the north of Luxembourg and enters a rural village where a teenage girl has mysteriously disappeared. The detective experiences an outrageous culture shock as he tries to settle in. He enlists local police officer Elsa Ley to help him out in his mission. As the popularity of foreign language shows is steadily increasing, people have shown tremendous interest in ‘Capitani,’ whose first season has successfully kicked off. If you’re already wondering about its future, here’s everything we know about ‘Capitani’ season 2.
Capitani Season 2 Release Date
‘Capitani’ season 1 released in its entirety on February 11, 2021, on Netflix. It consists of 12 episodes with a runtime of 24-32 minutes each. The story is filled with suspense, which keeps the viewers constantly engaged and occupied.
With regards to the second season, here’s everything we know. The filming for the next season is in the works and is scheduled to begin in the middle of March 2021. It will be filmed in Luxembourg City and the shooting is estimated to last for 12 weeks. However, it has not been confirmed whether Netflix will take it up. Yet, there is a high chance of its return on the streaming platform as Kai Finke, Netflix’s director of acquisitions and co-productions reassuringly said that the show would resonate with an international audience as well.
Thierry Faber who actually served as the showrunner for season 1, expressed his joy in seeing the show being sent out into a global platform. It has been a source of tremendous pride for him as he said that they’d continue to develop more projects. Since the filming of the next season has not even started, it might take a while. However, season 2 is reportedly scheduled to premiere on RTL (the show’s home network) in February 2022. Following that, we can expect ‘Capitani’ season 2 to release on Netflix sometime mid-2022.

Capitani Season 2 Plot: What Can it Be About?
The story of ‘Capitani’ kicks off with the disappearance of a young girl whose case is to be investigated by a detective named Luc Capitani. He visits the rural village towards the north of Luxembourg, where the accident takes place. As he ventures into the depths of this mysterious case, other themes like politics, drugs, violence, and past life enter the picture. On top of that, the entire village is hiding secrets.
