Netflix 'Mortel' Season 2: Air time, how to watch and trailer of the French horror series
'Mortel' is coming back to the streaming platform with another season and things are going to get more dangeroud this time around
Netflix has a knack for creating thrilling stories that always take the viewers on a roller coaster ride and keep them at the edge of their seats. Be it action or comedy, the streaming platform has everything for everyone. However, there is one genre that has been doing really well on the service and that is none other than horror.
‘#Alive’, ‘Veronica’ and ‘Hereditary’ are some of the movies that have done really well on Netflix and have garnered positive reviews from the audiences. ‘Hereditary’ was one of the best movies of 2018 and even considered to be one of the movies that might get nominated for an Oscar.
Last year, Netflix brought something new to the table and used voodoo as a subject of a horror series. There have been a countless number of horror movies in which voodoo has been used as the primary source material, but none of the movies in the past presented it quite like Netflix ‘Mortel’. The original French-language series made its way to the streamer in 2020 and found a decent number of watchers. As a result, Netflix decided to renew the show for another season and fans are excited to see another set of captivating horror stories on their screen. Season 1 left fans with plenty of questions unanswered and after inconsistent renewal announcements, we are finally about to get our answers. Here’s everything we know about the series.
Air time and how to watch
According to the Netflix press site, the upcoming edition of the horror show will be airing exclusively on July 2 at 3 am ET , Friday. Viewers can subscribe to the streaming platform for watching the series. Netflix is available to use through multiple platforms and devices as long as you have a subscription with them.

The show chronicles the journey of a guy named Sofiane (Carl Malapa), who is on a quest to find what happened to his lost brother Reda (Smai Outalbali). Sofiane is ready to do anything and everything to reach his goal and in order to find his brother, he teams up with Victor (Nemo Schiffman) and makes a pact with a supernatural creature called Obe (Corentin Fila). The mysterious creature is filled with supernatural abilities, however, it is not going to be easy for Sofiane and Victor to achieve what they want to because everything comes with a price.
The official synopsis for Season 2 reads, “When Obé returns — in a startling new form — and begins to raise an army of followers at the school, Sofiane, Victor and Luisa race to stop a disaster.”
All the original cast members are returning for the upcoming seasons. Carl Malapa will be reprising the role of Sofiane while Nemo Schiffman will be back as Victor. On the other hand, Manon Bresch will be returning to portray the character of Luisa and Corentin File will once again scare the hell out of people with his portrayal of Obe.
Other actors to appear in the series include Sami Outabali (Reda) and Anais Thomas (Audrey Jourdant).
The series has been created and written by Frederic Garcia. Along with Garcia, screenwriters such as Virginie Brac, Yann Le Gal, Lola Roqueplo, and Fanny Talmole have also penned the story for the sci-fi horror show.
The trailer sees Reda getting back with his group and everyone seems to be happy after his returns. However, Sofiane believes that things have gotten worse after his return. Meanwhile, there is a group of people who have made Obe their god and are doing what he tells them to. The clip has an eerie feeling to it which perfectly sets the tone.
