The Recruit season 2

In the past year, Netflix has found amazing success within the genre of action and crime thriller series. The Lincoln Lawyer was a spring hit as a legal drama-thriller, and The Night Agent made a massive splash the next spring as a political drama. Right in the middle of both and the cherry on top is the spy thriller The Recruit. It’s the perfect trio all going into second seasons.

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before star and all-around Netflix favorite Noah Centineo leads The Recruit as Owen Hendricks, a bumbling and fresh-faced CIA lawyer who’s swiftly thrown into the deep end with a case involving a former asset. It’s a wild ride from start to finish, but it’s not over yet as a second season was announced one month after its premiere.

Along with the renewal, Netflix confirmed that The Recruit season 2 would be released in 2024. That announcement was prior to the writer’s and actors’ strikes, meaning the next batch of episodes still needed to be filmed, which was supposed to begin in June 2023. Filming for the first season took place between October 2021 and March 2022, and the season was released nine months later.

The Recruit season 2 filming officially kicked off in January 2024 for a now-confirmed release in 2025. However, we're hopeful that production and post-production won't take as long for season 2 in order for Netflix to drop the season earlier in 2025 rather than later. We need to know what happens next in Owen Hendricks' chaotic spy journey, and 2025 is already too long of a wait.
