‘How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast)’ is a coming-of-age comedy-drama that follows the outrageous story of a high school student becoming one of the world’s biggest online drug peddlers. The German series is one of Netflix’s most popular offerings from the country and has kept audiences glued over multiple seasons with its swift, unpredictable storyline and quirky characters that find themselves in situations that no regular school-going teenager should. But then, these are not regular teenagers.
Created by Philipp Käßbohrer and Matthias Murmann, the show doubles down repeatedly on raising the stakes for its protagonists, and season 3 ends with them colliding hard with reality. However, the MyDrugs frontman Moritz seems to have more plans still up his sleeve. So could there be more to come? Here’s everything we know about ‘How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast)’ season 4.
How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast) Season 4 Release Date
‘How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast)’ season 3 premiered on Netflix on July 27, 2021. All 6 episodes, each lasting between 30 and 35 minutes, released simultaneously, giving viewers the chance to binge-watch the season, which lasts just over 3 hours but packs a significant punch.
As far as season 4 is concerned, there have been no official announcements regarding whether it has been greenlit, and therefore, the possibility of a future season remains uncertain. The show has garnered a hefty global fan following since its premiere in 2019. Season 3 will most likely see favorable viewership numbers, which remains an important factor in a show getting renewed for future seasons.
However, there are details in season 3 that seem to hint at the show concluding, at least for the time being. Like the anonymous documentary maker who interviews the protagonist Moritz, many long-running gags are finally untangled and revealed. Another factor that could be quite significant to the show’s future is that its main characters, who were so far minors studying in high school, are now above the age of 18, which would turn them into a completely different category of criminals and possibly diminish some of the show’s original premise.
At this point, it remains difficult to say for sure whether ‘How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast)’ will be renewed for another season or not. Season 3 got greenlit about a week after season 2 premiered in 2020. Therefore, in case Netflix does go ahead with another season, we could be hearing about it quite soon. If that is the case, a potential ‘How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast)’ season 4 will most likely premiere in mid-2022.
How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast) Season 4 Cast: Who can be in it?
The show follows the notorious online drug marketplace MyDrugs, which is run by Moritz, Lenny, and Daniel. Maximilian Mundt, Danilo Kamperidis, and Damian Hardung essay these characters respectively, while Lena Klenke essays Moritz’s on-again-off-again girlfriend, Lisa. Supporting characters on the show include Fritzi (Leonie Wesselow), Moritz’s father Jens (Roland Riebeling), Moritz’s sister Marie (Jolina Amely Trinks), Gerda (Luna Baptiste Schaller), and Lenny’s hacker girlfriend Kira (Lena Urzendowsky).
Markoesa Hamer and Hannah van Lunteren essay the notorious Dutch drug suppliers Marlene and Beeke respectively, while Ruben Brinkman steps into the role of their deadly associate Maarten. The potential season 4 will most likely see the return of all of the above cast members, with the notable exception of Markoesa Hamer, whose character is killed in season 3.
How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast) Season 4 Plot: What can it be About?
Season 3 follows an escalating feud between the high school students running MyDrugs and their Dutch suppliers who insist on continuing and scaling up operations. Things begin to get dangerous and Moritz, in an attempt to get rid of them and come up with the million euros needed for the experimental therapy Lenny needs to survive, gets them arrested and steals a large quantity of drugs from them in the ensuing confusion. As it turns out, the three wily suppliers avoid going to prison and come after the youngsters with a vengeance. The season closes with Moritz in prison but on talking terms with all his friends. He also seems to be running a lucrative side business that looks suspiciously like his earlier enterprise.
A potential season 4 could have Moritz breaking out of prison, which is hinted at in the season 3 finale, and embracing his entrepreneurial spirit again. The stakes will likely get much higher, considering he would now constantly be on the police’s radar and would also have connections with some truly unsavory criminals that have been built up in previous seasons. His relationship with his father, who now knows about his son being a global drug dealer, will also be an interesting aspect that could be explored in another season if it does come about.
