Beef creator already has idea for season two and wants to make three seasons
| Last updated
The creator of breakout Netflix series Beef has said he already has an idea for a second season – and even beyond, hopefully.
“Danny is a blue-collar worker struggling to find his footing, while Amy is a self-made woman with a picturesque family,” a synopsis from Netflix fan platform Tudum explains.
“Everyone has a bad day, but few let a car honk turn into a high-speed chase.
“Throughout the 10-episode series, Danny and Amy’s feud spirals into an obsession with revenge that not only consumes each of them, but also takes over the lives of their loved ones.”
After dropping on the streamer earlier this month, the series has become a firm hit with viewers – with some saying it’s the best thing they’ve seen this year, if not ever.
It will come as good news, then, for them to hear that creator Lee Sung Jin has already thought ahead to further instalments.
While a second season has not yet been announced, Sung Jin has a ‘really big’ idea for one, and even has a third season mapped out as well.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, he spoke about the show’s finale (don’t worry, we won’t drop any huge spoilers!), which left things open to interpretation for fans.
“I wanted it to have a conclusive feel just in case,” Sung Jin said.
“But there are a lot of ideas on my end to keep this story going. 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.”
Sung Jin said everything ‘vomited’ out of him and those involved during the writing and shooting process, saying the time pressures when working in TV are simply 'insane'.
“I don’t think I had time to pause or filter myself,” he continued.
“The time crunch in television is insane. You just don’t have any time to get your head above water and be like, ‘Wait, what are we doing?’ There was actually a version of episode  that was much darker, believe it or not.
“To everyone’s credit, people walked me back. If you read the first outline, you’d be appalled.”
