Intimacy Season 2: Has Netflix Renewed the Spanish Drama?
Currently, there are no reports or rumours regarding the renewal of the political series. But I guess it is too soon to speculate anything as the series has just dropped on the platform and after reviewing the audience reaction and viewer ratings of the show, the creators might take the story forward.
Although, the series has been getting good reviews from critics, which call it an important and compelling thriller depicting the modern era.
As we saw in the end that Malen Zubiri is back in the political race for the position of Mayor and was putting up posters for her electoral campaign. There seems to be potential for more drama, as her opponents might try to find more dirt on her to drag her out of the candidate list.
In season one, when Alfredo (Malen’s husband) left home after her video scandal, he was living a reckless life with heavy drinking and sleeping with anyone.
These actions could come biting at Malen’s way, now that he is back with her, as anyone could accuse him or use his actions to degrade Malen. Even the violent case of her daughter, Leire, where she knocked out her ex-boyfriend, was dealt with low-key and could become an issue later.
In a society which gives high regard to family values, the topic of an open marriage might become a hot debate surrounding in context of her marriage.
Now that we have also learnt that she even hit her mother in an incident once, but don’t know the details of it, this premise could be explored in the next season.
There might be some family secrets that made Leire, the way she is and could be the reason for her mental instability. You can read more about the series and its ending explained here.
