After Netflix’s success with the German series, ‘Barbarians’, the streamer added yet another show, ‘Over Christmas’ — the 11th German original, directed by Tobi Baumann. This loose web adaptation of the novel ‘7 Kilos in 3 Days: Home Over Christmas’ by author Christian Huber, is a heartfelt romantic drama. Set against the snowy backdrop of the wintry, holiday season, ‘Over Christmas’ is an emotional story — minus the frills of festive cheer. But it does contain the required doses of comedy to keep you entertained.
In short, another complete package, all the way from Germany! So, have you watched ‘Over Christmas’ yet? Are you wondering what the future holds for the drama? Well, we have you covered!
Over Christmas Season 2 Release Date:
‘Over Christmas’ season 1 premiered on November 27, 2020, on Netflix, in all its entirety of three episodes. However, as far as its next season goes, here is the thing. The show has been branded by the streamer as a limited series. The first three episodes cover the complete content of the source material, Christian Huber’s novel. Therefore, it is highly unlikely that ‘Over Christmas’ season 2 will ever get commissioned.
