The Chestnut Man Trailer
Over the 6 episodes, the show managed to hold the fans’ attention very well. It is a very intense show that did a great job of combining drama, politics, mystery, and crime into one!
It also gave us an insight into the complicated dynamics of family and parent-child relationships. It spoke a lot about cross-generational trauma and the burden it puts on both parents as well as children.

The Chestnut Man Review And Ratings
The Chestnut Man season 1 shocked fans and how! It got superb ratings with very high viewership in the first 2 days itself. Although the original version of the show is in Danish, Netflix provides English dubbing as well as subtitles so that viewers all over the world can enjoy the show!
IMDb reviewers gave the show a score of 8.6/10 which is a pretty high rating especially considering the fact that it came out less than a week ago.
Will The Chestnut Man Season 2 Ever Happen?
The simple answer is yes. It definitely is likely to happen. Going by the response it has got from viewers, it would be surprising if Netflix were to cancel the show after only 1 rather short season. Having said that, we don’t have any details of the show’s renewal yet. This is obviously because the first season just launched and it is way too early to say anything about The Chestnut Man Season 2 right now. We think the makers and Netflix will wait for a while before announcing anything. Viewership needs to be taken into consideration.
We expect The Chestnut Man Season 2 announcement by early 2022 at the latest.
