First Kill is a teen drama based on the YA short story by V. E. Schwab and inspired by the renowned story of Romeo and Juliet.
The show follows two families. There’s the Fairmonts, who is an acclaimed family among Legacy vampires.
And there’s the Burns, who comes from a Guild committed to hunting monsters like the Fairmonts. Juliette (Sarah Catherine Hook) and Calliope (Imani Lewis) are from warring families, but falling in love puts a tiny hitch in their plans to kill each other.
We have extensive coverage of First Kill on the site, including episode recaps and an ending explained. Feel free to check those out!
First Kill Season 2 Release Date
Even though the first season of First Kill has just been released, Netflix has yet to announce whether or not it plans to order a second season. In the meantime, we are keeping our fingers crossed that First Kill will be renewed, given how well it has performed recently.
It’s possible that the second season of Netflix’s First Kill will premiere in the summer of 2023 if it’s renewed for a second season. That would put its release date somewhere around 10 June 2023.
First Kill Season 2 Cast
Chances are that most of the cast members that appeared in First Kill will return for the second season, however, it’s not yet known which actors will be returning.
Many fans will be upset if Sarah Catherine Hook and Iman Lewis do not return to reprise their roles as star-crossed lovers Juliette and Calliope. Gracie Dzienny as Elinor, Dylan McNamara as Oliver, and Aubin Wise as Talia is also expected to return.
Lizzie Mitchell, Jason Robert Moore, Will Swenson, and Dominic Goodman are among the other actors we’d want to bring back. Hopefully, Walnette Marie Santiago and Jonas Dylan Allen will reprise their roles as Carmen and Ben Wheeler.
First Kill Season 2 Plot
Vampires Never Get Old: Tales With Fresh Bite, an anthology due out in 2020, will serve as a “launching point for the rest of the globe,” Schwab told Manny the Movie Guy in a recent interview. The author commended showrunner Felicia D.
Henderson for helping to expand the storyline from what she had already sketched down in the first episode of the series.
Romeo and Juliet and Twilight are widely referenced in the series, even referencing Shakespeare’s “violent delights have violent finishes” statement in the Season 1 finale.
Juliette and every other legacy vampire had just been called “special kinds of monsters” by Cal, who had previously promised to spend the rest of her life “try[ing] to figure out how to kill” them. Season 2 is sure to see a reunion, or at least an attempt to do so, between the two protagonists after their terrible breakup.
Although Apollo and Jack had been planning to “put down” their cherished murderous family member, Talia aided the newly transformed son Theo to escape their clutches. Theo was reluctantly handed over to Juliette’s vampire brother Oliver by the Burns matriarch in order for him to join a “new family.
” To make matters worse, Oliver tells his new “brother” that he came to Savannah to “ruin some lives,” before introducing him to some other supernatural “friends” who will help them “rule this b*tch” in a possible second season.
Slayer Jack, on the other hand, was last seen loading up some vampire-hunting weaponry and is sure to be hot on their heels.
