The final episode of the show was called The Case of the Hungry Snake and it was helmed by Pete Chatmon with the script written by Ross Maxwell. It shows the Night Nurse joining the detective agency in the capacity of a supervisor. This gives her a medium and space to do some good work. The relationship between Charles and Edwin reaches its conclusion as confessions take place, leaving the audience with much delight.

A shocker comes up in the episode when Nicko is hit. However, her fate is not known. David, who has been the arc bad guy of the show, gets a much-deserved defeat. This happens when he faces off with Crystal whose newfound powers make her powerful.

Will There Be Another Season?

Netflix has not confirmed whether the series will return for Dead Boy Detectives Season 2 or not. But there is still hope given the nonconclusive ending of the first season. This has opened doors for many possibilities that the makers can explore in the second season.

What To Expect From It?

If it happens, Dead Boy Detectives Season 2 can explore what actually happened to Niko. There are many possibilities about her fate which include the chances that she is alive but in a very different realm. This point is worth exploring and the makers might pick it.

As the first season reached its finale, we saw the original group getting slowly split. While some of them are planning to shift to the United Kingdom, Jenny is thinking about teaming up with them.

So the next season might show them restarting their agency but in a foreign land. Meanwhile, Crystal faced David who was her very toxic ex in the story. This arc is not complete and can be explored. The powers that she has now and its roots via her ancestors can be a topic of the upcoming season as well.

Neil Gaiman‘s eponymous comic series from the 1990s is very vast so the makers can pick the plot points that weren’t touched in the first season.

Who Will Be In The Cast?

Dead Boy Detectives Season 2 on Netflix will see the return of its main cast like George Rexstrew who plays the role of Edwin Paine as well as Jayden Revri (Charles Rowland). These two form the core of the Dead Boys and without them, it’s hard to imagine the story moving forward.

Other supporting names can also be seen in the second season like Kassius Nelson (Crystal), Ruth Connell (Night Nurse) and of course Yuyu Kitamura as Niko. There might be new additions in the cast as well since the storyline will take a new course in Dead Boy Detectives Season 2 if it takes place.


Dead Boy Detectives has the touch of Gaiman’s fantastical story with really unreal yet rooted characters. It’s a true adaptation and is really well-made and designed. Its warm response among audiences has raised queries related to Dead Boy Detectives Season 2 as fans are really demanding it. While Netflix has not confirmed it yet, chances are high that it will be commissioned not sooner but eventually, after the hype has been analyzed by the makers.
