Its the different kind of horror, the one which is not liked by many and disliked by most. Yes, we are talking about Ares- that new horror show on Netflix.
Yes! This is the ‘Hereditary, Midsommar or Suspiria’ kind of fear. What we call this horror is a dystopian secret society or cult horror. Not so dystopian; as all of the things have been happening from way too long and are happening even now.
Ares involves all the things like knives, goats, and salt and that are just some of the things you need to be familiar with to watch such kind of horror.
Netflix exclusively filmed this Dutch series, Ares for its audience.
Ares follows the story of Rosa, a student who gets introduced to a secret society and finds out about supernatural stuff going on in the club.
There are eight half an hour episodes for the viewers full of violence, gore, mystery and drama that horror fans crave for.
Ares Season 2 Renewed?
We don’t have a release date yet, but our best guess would be early 2021 as the first season has just dropped in January 2020. So the eight-episode shoot might come sooner or later, but it would scare us for sure.
As Netflix hasn’t confirmed the renewal of the second season we may still have some time to see the second instalment soon as we all know the pandemic has caused a lot of damage to every sector in the world including the entertainment-based sector. So we might see the second season in late 2021, or 2022.
Ares Season 2 Cast
Ares season 1 had the following as the main cast:
- Jade Olieberg as Rosa Steenwijk
- Tobias Kersloot as Jacob Wessels
- Lisa Smit as Carmen Zwanenburg
- Robin Boissevain as Roderick van Hall
- Frieda Barnhard as Fleur Borms
- Hans Kesting as Maurits Zwanenburg
- Rifka Lodeizen as Hester de Hoogh
- Roos Dickmann as Puk
- Jip van den Dool as Arnold Borms
- Janni Goslinga as Joyce Steenwijk
- Dennis Rudge as Wendel Steenwijk
- Minne Koole as Henry Zwanenburg
- Jennifer Welts as Marije
- Florence Vos Weeda as Chloe
- Nils Verkooijen
So we might expect to see the same faces in the second season as well.
We might not see more of Steef de Bot anymore as her character Joost van Moerland got killed in season 1, although if her ghost ever tries to make a comeback. That would be nice for the horror fans.
What’s new in the plot?
As the series gets more complicated, the protagonist of the story gets more involved in the shady practices of the group and comes across various bloody things she would never have imagined. The story of Rosa and her father would also make some way for future episodes.
