The Order was a bit of a surprise hit. It really didn’t get much promotion before it suddenly showed up on Netflix under the originals category. Still, word of mouth pushed this series to the top and once people watched it, they began sharing it on social media.
Within days of its release, people were stating they were binge-watching the series and encouraging others to check it out.
It seems the word-of-mouth recommendations worked because The Order is a hit, has already been renewed for a second season and fans are sounding off about their anticipation for Season 2.
Like many series, The Order ended on a cliffhanger and there are loose ends that need to be tied.
Did you watch Netflix’s new series The Order? What did you think of the series? Are you looking forward to the second season? At this time, a premiere date hasn’t been announced and it remains unclear when filming for The Order Season 2 will begin.
