The series based on the Image comic book series Jupiter’s Legacy by Mark Millar and Frank Quitely has received much love from the viewers. Many fans are wondering when will the second instalment arrive on Netflix. Here’s everything we know so far about Jupiter’s Legacy Season 2 on Netflix, including its potential release date, trailer, cast, plot, and more.
Has Netflix renewed Jupiter’s Legacy for season two?
At the time of writing this on May 18, 2021, Netflix hasn’t renewed Jupiter’s Legacy for Season 2. However, this may change soon, as the original superhero series is ranking high in Netflix’s top 10 list in the US and UK since its arrival on May 7, 2021. We are pretty sure that will get a renewal as Netflix has spent a whopping amount to acquire the comic book rights. It’s highly unlikely that the digital streaming giant will discontinue its first original superhero series after one season.
Do we have a release date for Jupiter’s Legacy season 2?
As the show hasn’t been renewed yet, there is currently no release date for Jupiter’s Legacy Season 2. If the show gets greenlit in the next couple of weeks, expect the next chapter to arrive in mid or late 2022.
Jupiter’s Legacy season 2 trailer

What will be the plot of Jupiter’s Legacy season 2?
With so much of Mark Millar’s Jupiter’s Legacy comics left to be adapted, it is likely that Netflix’s plan for the next chapter would be to overthrow Sheldon as The Union’s leader by none other than Brainwave aka Walter.
In the first season, we saw it was Brainwave – who created the clone of Blackstar, caused the Hilltop battle that led to the deaths of superheroes, and caused a rift between Sheldon and his son Brandon. In the comics, Walter convinces Brandon to betray his parents and join Walter’s cause. Other superheroes follow, and Walter’s team ends up killing Sheldon and Grace. This should be the main plot point for the second season.
Well, Jupiter’s Legacy is not only about the two superhero brothers fighting to get control of the Union. One of the heavy plotlines of Jupiter’s Legacy comic is focused on Chloe (Sheldon’s daughter) who lives as a fugitive with her husband Hutch and their son. Most of Jupiter’s Legacy takes place in the near future once Chloe and her family come out of hiding to fight back against a Union headed by Brainwave.
Season 2 is will have more intriguing and entertaining plotline with a lot of characters to be explored.
