Netflix is developing some fantastic shows and expanding its collection of quality content. Recently, as the year comes to a close, Netflix has added another hit show that is a fan favorite. Yes, we are definitely addressing treason.
Treason is a brilliant and must-see spy drama. The entire story holds the attention of the audience. Treason revolves around Adam Lawrence, who has been trained and prepped by MI6 and whose profession is already set. But things don’t go easy on him.
In Adam’s life, a confrontation is on the horizon. A chance encounter in the series causes him to doubt everything in his life. Let’s take a closer look at whether we’ll get a second season of this spy thriller.
Treason Is Not Getting A Second Season On Netflix
After watching the five-episode thriller series, everyone may have wondered if there will be a second season of Treason. We already know the answer to this concern. Treason is already billed as a miniseries on Netflix, which means it will not receive a second season.
Netflix does not renew miniseries or limited series for a second season. In just five episodes, the entire story is wrapped up. If you binge-watched the series, you already know how it ends.
Though sometimes a miniseries get upgraded to a regular one that’s one in hundreds. And we might not get more seasons of Treason.
Netflix describes the series as “An MI6 deputy’s bright future takes a sharp turn after a reunion with a Russian spy forces him to question his entire life.”
Charlie Cox Addressed A Little About Treason Being One-Of-A-Kind
Charlie Cox talked about Treason being a unique spy thriller.
He said, “What Matt Chapman, the writer, and showrunner was really interested in, was how someone involved in MI6 and has worked in that area for most of his life, is how it affects the family.
Despite what the trailer might suggest, because a trailer is a trailer, there’s not a huge amount of action in the show, actually.
A lot of it is dealing with the relationships with Adam’s wife and his children and the pressures for someone who lives and works in that world, especially when they come under fire, especially when there’s extreme adversity, and how they handle that. That was one of the goals, how to set it apart from other shows in that genre.”
He continued, “I’m now a father to young children and I haven’t had children on camera before, so I was really excited about that.
So much of this story in the first episodes revolves around the emotional trauma of his daughter, so I was excited from an acting point of view to explore that, to see what it was like to be a father on screen, and to dive into those feelings and those relationships.
But if you take James Bond as the pinnacle of spy genre content, what was interesting to me about this was we got to see a little bit more behind the curtain, we got to see some of the quote-unquote unflashy elements of what a spy has to deal with, and we get to go home with them.
We get to go on a date night with them, he puts the children to bed, and he’s asked pretty pointed questions by his innocent children at times when he’s really quite questioning his own morality.”
