Will there be a Beef season 2 on Netflix?
As of April 2023, Netflix has not yet renewed the Beef for a second season. Neither the series has been cancelled nor renewed by the streaming network.
Even though, the series was announced as a television miniseries, we can expect to see a Beef season 2 as The Watcher was renewed for another season by Netflix.
If fans keep their unstinted support to Beef series then we might be able to see a Beef Season 2 on Netflix like The Night Agent season 2 that has been recently ordered by the streaming giant for another season.
Also, the popularity of this Asian American series keeps on increasing with time, so we need to wait for at least 2 months before the network takes a final decision.

The first season ends with Danny lying on a hospital ventilator after being shot by Amy’s husband George. However, he’s not dead as he sends Paul text messages in the final moments and is also seen replying to Danny’s text messages.
