Kasia Adamik and Olga Chajdas teamed up to create the gloomy and gritty young adult supernatural series ‘Cracow Monsters’ (‘Krakowskie potwory’). The storyline chronicles a monster-infested underworld below the modern city of Cracow. A professor and his supernaturally abled team of nine students struggle to decode the paranormal mysteries while the enigma of Alex lies at the center of the tale. After losing her mother in a tragic accident in her early childhood, Alex drowns her nightmare in partying, sex, drugs, and alcohol.
However, after getting noticed by the professor, Alex’s life veers in a new direction. When a demon named Hvor unleashes hell in the contemporary city, Alex must communicate with her mother in the otherworldly realm and put the puzzle together. After its release on Netflix, the Polish-original series attracted much attention, thanks to its grounded mythology-infused storytelling, complex characters, and electrifying ambiance. Following the cliffhanger finale of the first season, you must be wondering if a follow-up installment is in the books. If the thought has indeed crossed your mind, let us probe deeper and find out if there is a possibility of a second round!
Cracow Monsters Season 2 Release Date
‘Cracow Monsters’ season 1 premiered in its entirety on March 18, 2022, on Netflix. The first season packs eight episodes with an episodic runtime of 49-55 minutes each.
Here is what we can tell you about the possible sophomore season. Although there has been no official announcement, a second season may be in the books looking at how the first season’s finale leaves plot threads hanging. Netflix usually takes a few months to look into the comprehensive viewership data. Based on that, it decides whether or not it makes sense to greenlight a show for a new edition. Thus, if the show is renewed by June 2022, we can expect ‘Cracow Monsters’ season 2 to premiere sometime in Q1 2023 or later.
Cracow Monsters Season 2 Cast: Who can be in it?
Almost all the central cast members should be back on board if a second season sees the light of day. They are Andrzej Chyra (Professor Zawadzki), Barbara Liberek (Alex), Anna Paliga (Iliana), Kaja Chan (Hania), and Stanislaw Cywka (Birdy). Maja Chan (Basia), Stanislaw Linowski (Lucky), Mateusz Górski (Antoni), Daniel Namiotko (Gigi), and Malgorzata Bela (Aitwar) also take up crucial roles. In addition, we may see some fresh faces in the potential season 2, but it is too early to speculate.
Cracow Monsters Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?
The finale of the first season unveils a war between realms. Alex rushes to stop the transition to another era after she learns that she is a reincarnation of Wanda. A red moon characterizes the final day of Veles’ reign. Alex’s grandmother appears in the dorm to warn Alex and others of the red moon. The others are already stunned by the apparent death of Lucky.
Alex feels that she can communicate with Wanda if the team recreates the act of drowning. Pushed against a wall, the professor jeopardizes Alex’s life, taking her to Hvor. A battle acts out, where Alex defeats Hvor, fulfilling her mother’s prophecy, and the professor saves his son. In the final moments of season 1, Alex’s guardian deity visits Lucky, who seems to be alive.
If there is a second season, it may pick up from the aftermath of Hvor’s destruction. A deity appears before Alex in the finale, reminding her that she has a hefty cost to pay for meddling with the divine business. However evil Hvor may be, he is still a deity, and killing him has repercussions. The potential season 2 may send Alex further down the rabbit hole, with the possible appearance of another gruesome giant from Slavic Mythology.
We will also possibly discover how Lucky comes back to life, as he seemed to be dead in the seventh episode of the first installment. Moreover, there will be more supernatural shenanigans between the dorm students. We may even hear another number from Hania, Basia, and their in-house band. Rest assured, there will be a more mythical allure to keep genre fans hooked.
