Ares, Dutch series, was filmed exclusively for Netflix and used in many recent films, including Midsommar and Suspiria, to create the common secret social dystopia. Elements of the show are also reminiscent of Hannibal. Ares follows the story of Rosa, a student who is inducted into a secret society in Holland and discovers quickly that this exclusive club has a supernatural dimension.
In its eight-half-hour episodes, Ares is bringing with it the brutality, mystery, and suspense that horror fans love, leading to a surprising ending with the monster and Rosa. Ares is similarly designed to the Mandalorian because it’s like a long, long film.
The end of season 1 is a typical horror film. A surprising turn of events finishes, which could be either the end of the story or a perfect cliffhanger if an interest in a sequel remains.
Netflix did not comment on the second season, but the second season was expected to be. The series was highly popular in its first month and would soon guarantee a second season after an excellent first season.
Netflix launched the first season of Ares on January 17, 2023, in the traditional Netflix style, with all eight episodes instantly available. To date, no news is available on the date of release for Ares season 2. Netflix has a swift history of hit series renewal. The Witcher, just recently announced, is already planning a second season for 2023.
The cast of season 2 includes:
- Jade Olieberg
- Tobias Kersloot
- Lisa Smit
- Robin Boissevain
- Frieda Barnhard
- Hans Kesting
- Roos Dickmann
- Jennifer Welts
- Minne Koole
- Dennis Rudge
For the 2nd story in Ares, there are no precise specifics, but the end of the first season points to where it might go. The end revealed that the secret society, Ares, was formed to contain a supernatural power called Beal. Beal, the viewers discover, is a black tar-like material that reflects the remorse that the leaders of Ares have been excelling for decades.
It’s pure human evil. In the end, Rosa leaps into Beal and consumes it as a mystical newborn from the black sea. This reveals that she has tar-black hair. A potential hypothesis of season 2 of Ares is the further exploration of Rosa’s new force.
