Biohackers Netflix Season 2 Renewed or Canceled?
The first season of the series Biohackers is yet to be released, so it is a little hard to predict whether the show is going to renew for its next season or not.
Like any other series on Netflix, the online media services provider decides whether to renew or cancel any series based on the viewers’ ratings and reviews. Nobody likes to keep showing the series that are not on demand.
However, considering the series having such an exciting futuristic storyline and with the talented actors starring in the show, it has a high chance of getting renewed for the next season.
Not to mention the show is created by the reputed director Christian Ditter and the producer FFF Bayern having produced other successful international series like “Dark”, this Biohackers is also anticipated to be a huge hit.
