Julien Leclercq and Hamid Hlioua’s Ganglands was released on September 24 on Netflix. The gangster drama has six episodes. Also called ‘Braqueurs’, the French thriller stars Sami Bouajila, Tracy Gotoas, Samuel Jouy, Nabiha Akkari, Sofia Lesaffre, Salim Kechiouche, Noureddine Farihi, Geert Van Ramperberg, Bakary Diombera.
The series has two leads – Liana (Tracy Gotoas) and Mehdi (Sami Bouajila), who have to team up to save Shainez (Sofia Lesaffre). As they try to save the person they love, it leads to a turf war between different gang lords. One of them is Saber (Salim Kechiouche), the drug mafia show kidnaps Shainez.
In Netflix Ganglands, Liana and Mehdi make for a powerful duo, but the villains are weak. Saber doesn’t have a strong personality and hence, can’t be taken seriously. But the show has lots of high-octane action scenes, which has left the masses impressed.
Since then, viewers have been wondering if there will be Ganglands Season 2 or not. Well, neither Netflix nor the makers have revealed anything about it. The series ended on a cliffhanger, so one may expect the streaming platform to give another season. But the digital platform is also known for cancelling good shows.
Despite being fan favourites, some of the shows cancelled by Netflix are Jupiter’s Legacy, The Irregulars, The Society, I Am Not Okay with This, and White Lines, among many others. Hence, at this point, it is only the best for fans of the French gangster drama to keep their expectations low. We all will have to wait for them to make an official announcement about the renewal or cancellation.
Talking about audience reviews, a Twitter user wrote, “#Ganglands omg, as if it ends like that!! Every episode was fire and savage!! Gave what it needed to. Hoping for a second series. #Braqueurs”. Another shared, “Ganglands is such a dope series.. Can’t wait for season 2..”
