Charles Melton and Cailee Spaeny could star in the next season of ‘Beef’

beef season 2

Along with The Bear, Netflix and A24 series Beef has cleaned up during awards season. So far, it's collected a total of 21 awards – and for good reason. So if you're hungry for more of that juicy tension, the good news is another season of Beef is on the way. And we think we might know who will lead it.


The first season of the series is staged around a road rage incident which spawns bad blood between a self-made entrepreneur and a struggling contractor. As the series progresses, the stakes of the feud begin to unravel their relationships.

From what we know so far, season 2 of Beef will centre a similar premise, that is two feuding couples. And rumours are circulating that Beef creator Lee Sung Jin has already lined up his next cast. But more on that below.


Deadline has reported the names of four actors are being tossed into the ring to star in season 2 of Beef. Lee Sung Jin reportedly has his eyes on Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway, co-stars in 2010 romcom Love & Other Drugs, as the first couple. Meanwhile, the second couple is allegedly Charles Melton off the back of his recent success on May December and Cailee Spaeny who starred as Priscilla Presley in Sofia Coppola's recent adaptation of the pop culture icon's memoir.

Do you think they'll have chemistry to match Ali Wong and Steven Yeun?

Is there a trailer?

Seeing as there's still no official confirmation on casting, we'll have to wait a little while longer to see a trailer.

Release date

Admittedly, it's still early days. Considering casting choices are still up in the air, we have no concrete date for when the second season of Beef will drop. However, when it does, we know it will land on Netflix.
