Kleo, a German show about a former East German spy seeking revenge against those who conspired against her, just dropped on Netflix, but that doesn’t stop us from already wondering about Kleo Season 2. Kleo is a revenge tale with bold action sequences and comedic moments. It is still pretty much early to see whether Kleo is going to be popular as other German shows on Netflix, such as Dark (2017-2020) and How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast) (2019- ). However, we believe Kleo could make a name for itself in the following weeks with its historical setting and talented cast members.
What about the show’s future, we can hear you asking. Was the show imagined as a mini-series from the beginning, or was the story planned to be told through multiple seasons? Even if it was, would Netflix give a chance to Kleo? The answers are below.
Kleo Season 2 Release Date
Netflix Germany hasn’t released official information about Kleo Season 2, so we don’t know if we will see another season. However, this situation is quite normal for less popular shows because Netflix usually waits for a month to see the viewership numbers of a series in its 1st 28 days. Unless a Netflix show is a global hit like Bridgerton (2020- ) or Squid Game (2021- ), this procedure is usually followed by the Netflix company. We don’t know what kind of numbers Kleo will make, so it is wise to wait, at least a few weeks, to guess whether the show will be renewed or not.
We don’t know if the series creators have another story that could follow Season 1. Even if they do, the renewal still depends on the success of Kleo. Let’s say the show is renewed; depending on the readiness of the script, we don’t think the Kleo Season 2 release date would be earlier than late 2023.
Kleo Season 1 Ending Explained
What happens at the end of Season 1? Kleo and Sven, whose intimacy increased as the events progressed, finally find the red suitcase. In the suitcase, they discover important documents which show that GDR (East Germany) and the United States have been making secret deals to preserve their status quo. After retrieving the suitcase and the documents within, Kleo is approached by Margot, who wants to take the suitcase in exchange for the address of Kleo’s birth mother.
While Kleo searches for her mother, Sven contacts a 3rd party to ensure the suitcase doesn’t stay with Margot. Kleo finds her mother, and in a devastating moment, we see that her mother doesn’t want Kleo in her life. At least, she learns she has 2 brothers, but that’s it. She returns home with Sven, and the pair spend the night together. In the morning, Sven says he made different plans regarding the suitcase, and we see Min Sun’s briefcase being shipped to the U.S. Another scene shows Margot opening a red suitcase full of toilet paper.
As the credits roll, we see that Uwe is alive and looking for his revenge. There is also the implication that the suitcase shipped to the U.S. has a bomb inside but the screen blacks out before we find out. This means the story must continue in Kleo Season 2.

Killing Eve (2018-2022): Having a spy in its central story, much like Kleo, Killing Eve is a fantastic story about the chase between a spy and a psychopathic assassin. Sandra Oh’s Eve is a brilliant British intelligence investigator tasked with capturing Jodie Comer’s Villanelle, a talented killer. As the 2 become mutually obsessed with each other, the chase gets even more exciting.
