'White Lines' Season 2: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and everything else about Álex Pina's Netflix show
Álex Pina’s glamorous crime thriller ‘White Lines’ has generated a lot of buzz, including fans asking if and when they will be treated to a second season. While there hasn’t been an announcement for season 2 as of yet, there are reasons to believe that the show will receive a second installment.
For one, the show was not billed as a limited series. That alone provides scope for a second season. Two, on Netflix, the show had ‘Season 1’ in the title, implying that there is more to come. There are more plot-related details that hint toward this as well, that we shall get into, up ahead. For now, we can keep our fingers crossed for a possibility of witnessing more of the Calafat family and the sun-soaked wonderland that’s Ibiza.
No release date for ‘White Lines’ Season 2 has been announced as of yet. Watch this space for more details.
Season 1 of ‘White Lines’ followed Zoe Walker (Laura Haddock) as she tried to figure out who killed her brother Axel (Tom Rhys-Harries) 20 years ago before the events of the series, in Ibiza, Spain. Axel was a rebellious DJ from Manchester, England, who had made his way to the paradise island to make music and a name for himself.
There, however, he found both success and enemies, especially in the form of the Calafat family, a powerful clan that ran the nightlife on the island. The series tantalizes viewers with the mystery of his murder till the very end when it’s revealed that he was murdered by his friend Anna (Kassius Nelson/Angela Griffin), with whom he was having an affair and Marcus (Ceallach Spellman/Daniel Mays), her then-boyfriend and now-ex-husband.
Despite the reveal, there was no justice for Zoe, as the law dictated that a murder twenty years ago could no longer be tried.
A possible season 2 should, therefore, look into a revenge arc for Zoe. But with or without that, if there is a season 2, it is likely to concentrate on the Calafat family, its rivalry with the Martinez family. Season 1 ended with Marcus advising the Calafat patriarch Andreu (Pedro Casablanc) that he should try and control the narco-trade on the island. By the looks of it, he liked the idea.
Marcus’ fate too was left in a dicey spot. He owed money -- a lot of it -- to the widows of the two Romanian drug dealers who were killed by Boxer (Nuno Lopes). If there is a season 2, it is likely to see a more ‘Narcos’ style story of gang rivalries and drug-trade.
While there is no confirmation, it is likely that in the event of a season 2, the same characters would feature on the show, in addition to possible newer ones.
