Creator of new action drama with near-perfect Rotten Tomatoes score responds to Netflix viewers’ pleas for second season

The Netflix series recently landed on the site

Netflix viewers were left begging for a second series after the streaming site debuted a new action drama.

Released in mid-November, the series inspired by real crimes is sitting with a near-perfect audience score over on Rotten Tomatoes (currently at 94 percent).

Directed by Heitor Dhalia, it has been hailed as an ‘epic cops-and-robbers action thriller’.

With eight hour-long episodes making up the series, the Brazilian drama features Rômulo Braga, Maeve Jinkings, and Thomás Aquino.

Viewers are already desperate for a second series.

Netflix’s synopsis reads: “After a robbery of epic proportions at a securities insurance company in Ciudad del Este, Paraguay, federal police officers from the Foz do Iguaçu police station, in Brazil, undertake an unprecedented investigation.

“Following the trail of DNA samples collected, they discover a thread that connects the robbery in the neighbouring country with other recent crimes and uncover an even bigger plan involving criminals from both countries.

“The analysis of a single case becomes the largest investigation against property theft in the history of Brazil, in a fictional series inspired by real crimes that have never been told before.”

In case you’ve not caught it yet, this hyped up Netflix show is called Criminal Code. Watch the trailer here:

And while viewers write on X that they ‘need a second season ASAP’, the creator has responded.

Dhalia responded to fans' comments on Instagram as they asked when season two would be coming.

“I hope soon,” he wrote.

As another asked: “Will there be a second season?”, the creator simply responded with a crossed fingers emoji.

Netflix Brazil also previously took to social media to announce that season two is indeed in the works.

"So proud of my first Brazilian police action series. Criminal Code is renewed for a 2nd season,” the translation of the tweet reads.

Users previously tweeted they’d ‘binged the whole eight episodes in a day and a half’ and called it the ‘best heist series since Money Heist’.

"Criminal Code, the Brazilian police-gangster serial on Netflix is just awesome. As good as Narcos!" someone else said.

Plenty call it ‘worth watching’ and ‘great TV’.

The Direct reckons a second season could see the creative team ‘going off-book’ with more fictional events.

It suspects: “Towards the end of Season 1, it was hinted that Guilherme was keeping a close eye on the day-to-day activities of the series' detective team, as his arrest may prove to be part of The Organization's plan all along.

"If that is the case, Season 2 could see Guilherme passing info back to his criminal overlords, with the federales wondering how their foes are always one step ahead of them, and allowing these criminals to continue to wreak havoc over Paraguay."

Criminal Code is now streaming on Netflix.
