The co-creator has said season two scripts have already been green-lit

While the show has become an instant hit on the streaming service, fans have been kept waiting for news on a season instalment of the popular show. According to co-creator Jonas Pate, Netflix has already green-lit season two. Chatting to Entertainment Weekly, he said: "Ever since we started, we always viewed it as something that was probably like a four-season, maybe five-season show, but definitely four seasons. We've sort of long-arced it out pretty far. I'm just hoping that we get a chance to actually tell those stories. Before [season 1] even came out, Netflix had green-lit us to write some [season 2] scripts, so we've been working on that for a few months now."
