Beef creator Lee Sung Jin says he has at least three seasons mapped out already
| Last updated
Everyone with a Netflix account is seemingly talking about Beef.
No, not the meat you might buy at the butcher or supermarket, the A24 television series created by Lee Sung Jin that is going viral at the moment.
It centres around Daniel Cho (Steven Yeun) and Amy Lau (Ali Wong), two complete strangers who have a run-in at a store parking lot when they're both on edge.
They have a wild road rage incident and it sparks an odd battle to one-up the other over the course of several episodes.
The duelling pair are both dealing with their own problems, but seem to go out of their way to make the other person miserable.
Beef ends with an absolutely wild finale, which we won't spoil for you, and if you're gagging for some more then it looks like your wish could be granted.
Lee Sung Jin told Rolling Stone that he definitely has more material up his sleeve if Netflix grants him the honour of continuing the series.
"There are a lot of ideas on my end to keep this story going," he explained to the outlet.
"I think should we be blessed with a season two, there’s a lot of ways for Danny and Amy to continue.
"I have one really big general idea that I can’t really say yet, but I have three seasons mapped out in my head currently.”
That is certainly titillating information indeed.
It would be unsurprising if Netflix didn't grant Jin at least a second season considering how big the reviews have been so far.
Beef currently has a rare 99 per cent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with the critical consensus saying: "Ali Wong and Steven Yeun are a diabolically watchable pair of adversaries in Beef, a prime cut comedy that finds the pathos in pettiness."
Reviewer Madeline Carpou wrote: "Every episode manages to expertly weave themes surrounding classism, sexism, new-age petulance and 'toxic positivity', and all kinds of notions regarding race in the western world."
Critic Gayle Sequeira added: "The show takes anger, an emotion as old as time, and roots it even more urgently in the current moment — an era that sells us on the ease of being able to have anything we want, only countered by our frustration at being unable to."
There's been no word from Netflix about future seasons, so we'll just have to sit and wait until Lee Sung Jin gets his wish.
