‘Barracuda Queens’ is a Swedish crime drama series created by Camilla Ahlgren (‘Quicksand’). The story centres around the titular group of affluent and privileged women who break into their obnoxious neighbours’ homes in some of Stockholm’s wealthiest neighbourhoods. Young Djursholm women Louise “Lollo” Millkvist (Alva Bratt), Klara Rapp (Tindra Monsen), Mia Thorstensson (Tea Stjärne), and Frida’s (Sandra Strandberg Zubovic) sister rack up a sizable bill following a night of partying. They decide to rob their neighbour, Amina Khalil (Sarah Gustafsson), of her home because they don’t want to ask their parents for the money. Amina observes and recognises them as they are engaged in the act, but she chooses to stay with them rather than calling the police.
The series examines topics like exploitation and liberation as the girls begin to target persons who have harmed them. The girls continue their burglaries even after their debt has been satisfied because they like the thrill they get from them. The series got mixed to excellent reviews after its debut, with some praising the show’s concept, execution, and modern aesthetic. We have the answer to your question about whether “Barracuda Queens” will return for a second season.
Will Barracuda Queens Season 2 Happen?
Season 1 of “Barracuda Queens” debuted on Netflix on June 5, 2023. There are six episodes totaling 31 to 35 minutes each. This is all we know thus far about season 2.
The creation of a second season has not yet been officially announced by either the show’s creators or Netflix officials. Producing ‘Barracuda Queens’ are Fatima Varhos and Frida Asp, who also collaborated on the FLX production company’s ‘Love & Anarchy,’ which became a worldwide hit. ‘Barracuda Queens’ is one of the first projects produced by Asp Varhos, the independent production business they founded after leaving FLX in 2021.
In an interview with the Nordisk Film & TV Fond, Varhos describes his company as “like a boutique company, focusing on a handful of quality projects, across different genres, formats, and budgets.” According to Ahlgren, “Our ambition is to create something fun, challenging, and fresh, and at the same time, tell a story about the times we live in, with five smart upper-class girls from Djursholm who know no limits as the main characters.”
The likelihood of “Barracuda Queens” getting a second season rises since the production crew aims to be very selective about the projects they choose to work on. In the season finale, the police investigate the girls after concluding, rightly, that Lollo and her friends are responsible for the recent string of break-ins. The girls were first in serious difficulties since they lacked the opportunity to organise their story.
However, they are fortunate when a bunch of male robbers attempt to enter Klara and Frida’s home while their father is present. When he phones the police, they quickly apprehend the robbers. This group is also held accountable for the crimes committed by the Barracuda Queens because they stole the trinkets that Frida seized from each home they burgled. In an operation, the police are unable to recover the remaining stolen property and are forced to release the girls. The girls learn that Lollo’s mother, Margareta (Izabella Scorupco), has saved them as the season comes to a close.
The fictional group of burglars known as the Barracuda Queens is partially inspired on the Lidingöligan, an all-boys organisation that operated from 1992 until 2012. Season 2 of the show may focus on the girls’ adventures as they get older. The programme may also explore Amina’s connection with Lollo’s brother Calle (Max Ulveson), or it may elaborate on the potential romance between Amina and Lollo hinted at by their fleeting kiss in season one. The success of the first season ultimately determines whether the season will be renewed. The second season of “Barracuda Queens” will premiere sometime in Q2 2025 if the programme is renewed for a second time in the coming months.
