The Serpent ‘is a crime drama series based on the life story of Charles Shobhraj, a murderer, thief and gentleman in disguise who sat on a hippie trail of Southeast Asia between 1975 and 1976, killing tourists. Shobhraj committed a dozen murders for which he was imprisoned in India from 1976 to 1997. He was so crafty that he secured his celebrity status long before he was released, sparking the urge to get to know him. That’s why Tom Shankland came up with ‘The Serpent’ in 2021 to quench the public’s thirst and discover the mind of the 20th century’s most infamous serial killer.
The Serpent was co-produced by BBC one and Netflix and featured Tahar Rahim as Charles Shobhraj and Jenna Coleman as Marie Andree Lecleric. The series consisted of eight episodes and was originally released on January 1, 2021.
The series was especially appreciated by the audience and received positive reactions; Fans even called it one of the BBC’s best works to date. One thing that many people found problematic was jumping back and forth in time. But despite this, there was a lot that fans could long for a second season.
When will season 2 of The Serpent be released?
The Serpent was based on the true story of serial killer Charles Shobhraj who eventually showed him in Nepal, where he is arrested and sentenced to life imprisonment. Since Season 1 has already touched on all aspects of Charles’ life, especially the murders, there’s not much left to tell what Season 2 could be made for. Unless a hypothetical story is conjured up and released as ‘The Serpent’ Season 2, the creators are highly unlikely to come up with a new season.
In addition, no such announcement regarding Season 2 has been made so far.
