Is Young Wallander coming back on Netflix?

The Netflix web series Young Wallander is currently on Netflix as it released four days ago. However many people are searching online whether a season 2 will release anytime soon. The streaming platform hasn't announced any information regarding a Young Wallander season 2 as of yet. Netflix usually announces the season renewals within one to six months after a show has aired. So, it is too soon to know about the Young Wallander season 2 release dates as there is no official announcement on the same for now.

Young Wallander plot

The six-episode web series titled Young Wallander is a prequel of the popular character named Wallander and his journey. Young Wallander is based on the novels by Henning Mankell that were written in the 1990s. The novels were adapted in two television series which gained immense popularity all over the world. However, Young Wallander focuses on the background of the character and is set in his younger days. Even though the character is set in the 1990s, the show will be set in present-day and will be a modern take of Wallander’s background story.
