Will Beef be renewed or canceled?
Beef made a big splash when it premiered on Netflix in April 2023, and it seems like there is a good chance the show will continue for additional seasons. I loved how Beef ended and would be okay with the series leaving us there, but creator Lee Sung Jin revealed he had a three-season plan for the show.
I’m not going to complain about having Ali Wong and Steven Yeun back on my screen, so I would be happy with a renewal! Even if the series doesn’t continue to follow Danny and Amy’s story, I could also see Beef working well as an anthology.
The show got off to a strong start when it debuted with 34.08M hours viewed, and since then, the series has climbed all the way to the top of the charts, dethroning The Night Agent to take the number 1 spot.
With its excellent word-of-mouth, early Emmy buzz, and a near-perfect Rotten Tomatoes score, I think Beef will have real staying power and should drum up even more significant viewership. I would not be surprised if Netflix renewed the series and campaigned hard for leads Steven Yeun and Ali Wong during the Emmy season.
It should be noted that Netflix recently revealed they would be submitting Beef in the “limited series or anthology” category, but that does not necessarily mean the show is going to end after season 1. See: The White Lotus.
