With Ernesto Contreras, Alejandro Fernández Almendras and Edgar Nito at the helm, the Netflix original action series ‘Pedal to Metal‘ (‘Dale Gas’) lives up to its name and emerges as a slick, fast-paced foray into the world of illegal racing. Will Pedal to Metal season 2 exist? Let’s find out!
After a race that ends in spectacular disaster, auto mechanic and illegal racer Enrique “Kike” Guerrero heads to Mexico City to escape trouble. With his only partner, Noche, Kike traverses the city’s sprawling underworld full of stolen auto parts and gangs of vehicle thieves.
In the process, Kike discovers his family’s stolen car business, which is one of the earliest in town. Now, while embroiled in a new illegal racing scene, Kike must take over his family empire and return it to its former glory. The premise makes for brain drama, full of nitro boosters, car races, and the occasional crash. After premiering on streaming platforms, the series has been applauded for its lavish production design and youthful charm. However, you may want to know if a second season is in the makings. If that’s the case, let’s investigate further.
Pedal to Metal Season 2: Potential Release Date
‘Pedal to Metal’ season 1 premieres in its entirety on March 16, 2022, on Netflix. The first season packs ten episodes with runtimes ranging from 45-60 minutes.
Now let’s speculate on a possible second season. As of now, the creators have not stated anything about a follow-up season. If we have to predict, this series manages to attract the attention of the audience. It mainly garnered positive reviews with its great production design and down to earth story. The display of fresh talent in the production also looked energetic enough to be worthy of a second season.
Finally, films such as ‘Fast and Furious,’ arguably the spiritual precursor to ‘Pedal to Metal,’ released several sequels, becoming popular franchises. Therefore, there is still plenty of room for this Netflix production story to develop further. Having said that, however, it will take Netflix about two to three months before announcing a show update. Should the streaming platform announce an update in June 2022, we expect ‘Pedal to Metal’ season 2 to premiere in Q1 or Q2 2023.
Pedal to Metal Season 2: Expected Cast
Cast members whose characters remained alive in the first season could return to their roles in a possible second installment. Taking important roles in the series are Andrés Delgado (Noche), Benny Emmanuel (Kike), David Montalvo (Centavo), Gerardo Taracena (Abel), Renata Vaca (Abigail), Silverio Palacios (Carcar), and Silvia Pasquel (Amparo).
Other supporting cast members who played important roles were Tania Niebla (Minerva), Jocelyn Chacón (Rebeca), Iván Martínez (Luisin), and many more. Most of the actors mentioned above will return to star in season 2. We might also see some promising talent in a possible second season if the creators decide to add new characters to the narrative.
Pedal to Metal Season 2: Expected Plot
The first season gradually recounts Kike’s initiation into the world of underworld racing in Mexico City. Kike and Noche initially try not to be seen, but their past catches up with them. Kike learns of his family’s vast empire in the city, which is currently in tatters. Kike is conflicted – on the one hand, he is trying to change his life, while on the other hand, he feels the weight of his family lineage on his shoulders. Meanwhile, he must deal with local gangs to establish his name on the scene. In the end, Kike overcomes his conflict and decides to repopulate his rundown family business.
The second season could take on the story after the finale of the first season. A potential second installment could show Kike climb the ladder in the world of auto theft in Mexico City. He can even form his gang, and some accidental damage can occur. We’ll also see the development of Kike and Noche’s brotherly bond, which may be strained as Kike takes over control of the family business. Rest assured, there will be more adrenaline-filled races and car chases to keep the audience happy when a second season comes along.
