Spy Ops is an intense and provocative new documentary series on Netflix about intelligence operates from the CIA and MI6 providing viewers with intel regarding covert coups, assassination attempts, and more fascinating insider stories delivered by real spies, officers, and military personnel.

If you’ve ever wondered what really happened in Afghanistan post-9/11 or how the US operates spy systems abroad, Spy Ops is the documentary for you. Featuring eight episodes, Spy Ops focuses on a different situation in each installment. The show spans decades, so while some episodes center on more recent affairs, many take to the past to explore things like George H.W. Bush’s presidency and the Cold War.

Within a few days of premiering, Spy Ops became a hit for the streaming service. Does that mean Netflix will order Spy Ops season 2? Here’s what we know so far.

Has Spy Ops been renewed by Netflix?

As of September 12, 2023, Netflix has not announced renewal or cancellation news for the documentary series.

Could there be a Spy Ops season 2?

Even though Netflix hasn’t officially renewed the show, there is a good chance that Spy Ops could return for multiple reasons. For starters, political and historical documentaries are often very popular on Netflix, especially content that involves the US military or true crime.

Spy Ops is all about insider stories and intel that takes viewers into Cold War campaigns, covert operations, and much more. Given what the show is about, it’s no surprise that it quickly ended up in Netflix’s Top 10.

Because the docuseries is an unscripted show, it’s cheaper to produce than Netflix’s scripted content and Netflix has previously ordered additional seasons or follow-up content to its popular documentary films and shows. For example, just recently, the streamer announced Murdaugh Murders would be returning for a second season and there have been multiple iterations of the Conversations with a Killer doc.

There is no shortage of spy craft Netflix could delve into if they wanted to create another season of Spy Ops, so I think the odds are pretty good that the show will continue at some point in the future. For now, we don’t have any official confirmation one way or another, but stay tuned to Netflix Life for updates and information on a potential Spy Ops season 2.
