Starting this week, a brand new detective series can be seen on Netflix: Lauchhammer – Death in Lusatia (2022– ). For anyone who has already seen the six new episodes, the big question is: will there be a second season of the compelling crime series? In this article we will discuss all the news about a possible new season.
NB: This article contains spoilers about Lauchhammer Season 1!
First season now available
For an LKA detective, the murder of a young woman is a home game: he grew up in the victim’s hometown in the lignite mining area of Brandenburg, the son of a local police officer. But now the area has gone steeply downhill. Together with a dedicated colleague, he investigates, with clues leading to climate activists, a gang of crooks and the unsolved past.
Will there be a second season of Lauchhammer – Tod in der Lausitz on Netflix?
Despite the great interest in the mysterious series, the German channel ARD Lauchhammer – Tod in der Lausitz not yet extended with a second season. Given the popularity of the series, a sequel seems likely, but an official green light will have to be given first.
After LKA investigator Maik Briegand returned to the place of his childhood in the first season to solve a tragic murder, events took a turn. In the last episode, the commissioners find clues that point to the perpetrator, who is already looking for his next victim. Plot details about a possible second season are yet to be announced, but we expect Briegand to investigate further murders in a new season.
As soon as something is announced about season 2, we will inform you about this. All information about a possible second season can be found here.
