"This was the best show I've seen in I don't know how long. Writing was solid, plot was solid, acting was solid, casting - all of it. I binged it all today and am kinda still processing it, but holy shit," wrote an excited fan. While another added, "This is definitely one of the best shows I’ve seen on Netflix. Excellent characters, interesting premise, hilarious writing and great music. It actually made me put my phone down and pay attention. I want more and can’t wait for the second season."
Apart from rave reviews and opinion on the newly released series, some fans revealed that they wouldn't mind if the series does not have another season because it is best just the way it is. And they do not mind watching the same season over again. "I think it could totally be a stand-alone. They learned to embrace the best parts of themselves and others and live happily ever after. Part of me wants a season 2 and part of me wants to just leave them alone in their bliss," said a fan. Another fan added saying, "The only problem I have is that I wish it was just a stand-alone season. I just don’t feel like they can too this but I hope to be pleasantly surprised."

The news of season 2 is still not confirmed, as Leslye Headland revealed to MEAWW in an interview previously saying, "You know, I can't speak to you about that. When we initially pitched the show to Netflix, we pitched three seasons and I think that the subject of those seasons and the possibilities of those are things that I can't speak to you about this time. But I will say that shooting with Natasha and Charlie, and shooting that storyline was so fulfilling."
But, that is not stopping fans who want another season from asking for what they would like to see and reveal how excited they are waiting for the series to be renewed. "I kind of want an anthology for Season 2... or exploring some offshoot of Season 1... or an alternate reality," wrote one fan. And another fan expressed her excitement for the series and hopes they have a second season. "SUCH A GREAT FRICKIN SHOW! I just got done binge watching the whole season and I can honestly say this is a new favorite show of mine, I hope there’s more seasons in store for us!!! @nlyonne @_CharlieBarnett."
