Taut political thriller The Diplomat is the latest must-watch streaming series to hit Netflix. Keri Russell, previously of prestige spy drama The Americans, stars as Kate Wyler, a newly appointed American ambassador to the United Kingdom who is tasked with avoiding an international incident, while simultaneously being surreptitiously primed for the vice-presidency back home.
Matters are further complicated by the expectations placed on a female public figure to “look the part,” not to mention the presence of Kate’s estranged husband Hal, played by Rufus Sewell, a career politician who is unused to seeing his wife take the ambassadorial spotlight.
Without getting into too many spoilers, it’s safe to say that the finale of Season 1 of The Politician ended on a pretty explosive cliffhanger—literally. Following the revelation of who exactly was behind the bombing in the Persian Gulf, the shit really hit the fan, leaving the respective fates of several key characters hanging in the balance.

For viewers who have already binged all eight episodes, here’s everything we know about where The Diplomat might go next.
Will there be a Season 2 of The Diplomat?
The short answer is, we don’t know. The show began streaming on April 21, which means it is too early for Netflix to have announced whether or not a second season has been commissioned. It is likely that streaming figures will play into this decision, although the fact that Season 1 ends in a way that clearly sets up future storylines would indicate that everyone involved in making the show is up for returning.
Who will be in Season 2?
If Netflix should renew The Diplomat, then the entire cast is expected to return, including Keri Russell, Rufus Sewell, Rory Kinnear, David Gyasi, Ali Ahn, Ato Essandoh, Michael McKean, Nana Mensah, Miguel Sandoval, Celia Imrie, and T’Nia Miller.
When might Season 2 of The Diplomat be released?
We’re in for a long wait, with Spring 2024 looking to be the earliest possible release date, allowing time for Season 2 to be written, filmed, and go into post-production.
