The Neighbor is a Spanish superhero comedy series that streams on Netflix. The series is developed by Nacho Vigalondo, who is best known for ‘Colossal’ and ‘Timecrimes’. The show is based on a graphic comic novel, ‘The Greatest American Hero’, authored by Santiago Garcia and Pepo Perez. The series revolves around a young and irresponsible man who receives superpowers from a dying superhero alien.
The first season of the show received a decent response from the fans. Now, the question arises: will there be a The Neighbor season 2? We will delve into that question, but first let’s quickly look into the details of the series.
The Neighbor Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?
The Neighbor season 1 premiered on December 31, 2019, on Netflix.
The show features a manchild who is suddenly handed with enormous amount of superpowers. Titan’s costume and role might remind a lot of viewers of another infamous superhero, better known as ‘Deadpool’. Though The Neighbor is a fresh take on the superhero genre and tries to appear different from your typical Marvel superhero shows.
If you are looking for a superhero series that is neither as serious as the ones from the DC Universe nor as dramatic as the superheroes of the Marvel world, then The Neighbor is the right pick for you. The humorous tone of the show is sure to entertain the audience throughout. As a Spanish show, The Neighbor also features different dynamics of different relationships but in a comical way.
As far as the next season goes, Netflix hasn’t made an official announcement yet. Though being a superhero show, it has most likely been conceived as a multi-season affair. On top that, the way season 1 ends is a clear indication that more episodes are being planned. Our best guess is that the show will get renewed and The Neighbor season 2 will release sometime in December 2020. We will update this section as soon as we hear more.
