Will The Order season 2 happen on Netflix, and if so, when will it release and what can fans expect from the story? As part of Netflix's initiative to produce more original content (such as Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), especially content that gears towards the science fiction, fantasy, and supernatural crowd, The Order TV show was a welcome follow-up to shows like The Umbrella Academy that have already engaged audiences.
The Order TV show, which was created by Dennis Heaton, released on Netflix on March 7 - almost one year after the streaming service first picked up The Order to series. Starring Jake Manley as Jack Morton and Sarah Grey as Alyssa Drake, The Order TV show follows college student Jack as he joins The Hermetic Order of the Blue Rose, a secret order that teaches and practices magic. But, of course, things don't go according to plan.

Even though The Order TV show recently released, it's already off to a strong start (despite the fact that Netflix doesn't release official viewership numbers). According to third-party analytic firms, The Order season 1 was watched by more than 12 million viewers, which should be more than enough for Netflix to justify making The Order season 2.
The Order Season 2 Release Date
Netflix has yet to officially announce The Order season 2, but considering its success already with season 1, a second season should be a given. So, if The Order season 2 happens (and happens soon), then it'll theoretically enter production by late spring so that it can complete by the end of summer. The Order season 1 reportedly wrapped production in July 2018, and the eight-month post-production time table suggests that Netflix could set The Order season 2 release date for approximately the same time next year. With that in mind, The Order season 2 release date should be set for around spring 2020.
The Order Season 2 Story
Judging by how The Order season 1 ended, The Order season 2's story will be something that fans are undoubtedly waiting to see unfold. In The Order season 1 finale, Edward (Max Martini) attempts to use the Vade Maecum, but to complete the spell, he needs to sacrifice his firstborn son. After a trick involving a golem, the spell backfires and kills Edward. But that's not where The Order season 1 ended.
After Edward's death, Jack requests that he remain a part of the Hermetic Order of the Blue Rose while also being a member of the werewolf organization and The Order's main rivals, the Knights of Saint Christopher. Even though his request is granted, initially, Katharine Isabelle's Vera has Alyssa blow white powder into Jack's face (along with the other werewolves having powder blown into their faces as well), which erases Jack's memory of The Order.
The Order season 1's twist ending doesn't just reset everything that happened throughout the season but also completely wiped away Jack's memory. At this point, Jack doesn't even know who he is. All of this will surely play into The Order season 2, which would logically cover how Jack and the rest of the werewolves reobtain their lost memories and perhaps get back at The Order for what they did to them. Also, given Edward's final warning, it's possible that he could return to the fold as well, but we'll just have to wait and see on that front.
