The first season of You Don’t Know Me debuted on Netflix on June 17, 2022. It was first broadcast on BBC One from December 5 to December 13, 2021. There are four 54–58 minute long episodes in the first season. This is what is known about the sophomore season.

The creation of a second season has not been confirmed by the show’s producers or BBC (The Valhalla Murders season 2) officials. You Don’t Know Me is the TV adaptation of a crime novel that doesn’t have a sequel, as was already established. The first season, meanwhile, ends in an unclear manner. If it is popular enough, the producers might opt to renew it for a second season, which would allow them to answer any unresolved issues. If this happens, “You Don’t Know Me” won’t be the first or the last program to do so.

The show’s creators may decide to convert it into an anthology series and create further seasons based on other Mahmood pieces. Or, they might be distinct productions with no real link other than the fact that they were both created by the same crew and were inspired by Mahmood’s writings.

The novels of Irish author Sally Rooney have been the subject of similar programming from BBC. In 2020, “Normal People” and “Conversations with Friends” were released. Both are based on works by Rooney and have the same creative team. In the end, we can conveniently refer to the upcoming episode of You Don’t Know Me as a second season regardless of how it manifests. The audience can anticipate the release of You Don’t Know Me season 2 in Q3 2023 if the program is renewed in the coming months.

The name of the protagonist is never revealed, as we’ve already indicated. Either the Defendant or the Hero is used to describe him. He is portrayed by British actor Samuel Adewunmi. Along with Sophie Wilde (Kyra), Bukky Bakray (Bless), Roger Jean Nsengiyumva (Jamil), Tuwaine Barrett (Curt), Yetunde Oduwole (Adebi), Michael Balogun (Face), and Miss Mahmood (or Prosecution Barrister), the first season’s cast also includes (Badria Timmi).

The characters of Nsengiyumva and probably Balogun will not feature in the envisioned second season, with the possible exception of flashback scenes. If the creators want to focus on Adewunmi’s tale in the upcoming season, he might return with the rest of the cast. When adapting Mahmood’s other works, new performers may be actively sought out for a variety of roles.

You Don’t Know Me’s season finale reveals that Bless shot Jamil to death. Face is probably also deceased. Kyra and Curt flee the scene. By choosing to turn himself in, the Defendant assures that he will be held accountable for Jamil’s death. Before she departs, Kyra promises the defendant that he will hold her accountable for the crimes if he is unable to obtain freedom in any other manner. The defendant envisions being found guilty or not guilty. Prior to the jury’s decision being announced, the series comes to an ambiguous conclusion.

We might see that the Defendant is free and looking for Kyra if the producers decide to continue the Defendant and Kyra’s story. He might have Bless with him while looking. Kyra is, after all, her best friend. It may be “All I Said Was True” or “I Know What I Saw” if Mahmood’s previous works are adapted.
