100 Code Season 2 Updates: Will It Happen?

Will Swedish serial killer drama 100 Code return for a second season? Sweden has a prolific producer of great thrillers in recent years, with movies and TV shows such as The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Killing, and Wallander leading to high-profile English language remakes. 100 Code was another intense thriller series which first aired in Germany back in 2015. The show follows New York cop Tommy Conley who travels to Sweden to look into a possible connection between brutal serial killings of young women.

100 Code was based on the book Merrick by Irish author Ken Bruen, with the TV adaptation starring Dominic Monaghan (Lost) as Conley and Michael Nyqvist (John Wick) as the local investigator he teams up with to solve the case. 100 Code took nearly 3 years to make its debut in the U.S., finally appearing on WGN America in 2018.

100 Code’s dark, brooding atmosphere hooked thriller fans and the show received good reviews for the chemistry between the two lead actors. The show also revealed a broader scope to the killings over the course of the season’s 12 episodes. While fans might have hoped for a second season of the show, it currently doesn’t seem like one is going to happen. 100 Code originally aired in 2015 and even back then there were no signs of it being more than a miniseries. Since it aired on WGN America that has also been no word on the show being renewed for another year.

There were also no sequel novels to Merrick, meaning if 100 Code season 2 does go ahead the showrunners would have to engineer an original story. Original star Michael Nyqvist also tragically passed away in 2017 and since the chemistry between him and Monaghan was such a driving factor behind the show, it might be better to leave 100 Code as a limited series.

A second season of 100 Code could, in theory, come up with a credible reason for Tommy Conley to travel back to Sweden again and work with a new partner, but the visible lack of movement on another series suggests the show has finished its run. Fans of Dominic Monaghan can check out the actor out in 2018 Australian thriller series Bite Club, which revolves around a cop investigating a case where a serial killer is targeting the survivors of shark attacks. The star is also set to appear in J.J. Abrams upcoming Star Wars: Episode IX in an undisclosed role.

It’s pronounced Paw-rick, not Pad-raig. Now that’s out of the way, a brief introduction. Padraig has been writing about film online since 2012, when a friend asked if he’d like to contribute the occasional review or feature to their site.

A part-time hobby soon blossomed into a career when he discovered he really loved writing about movies, TV and video games – he even (arguably) had a little bit of talent for it. He has written words for Den of Geek, Collider, The Irish Times and Screen Rant over the years, and can discuss anything from the MCU – where Hawkeye is clearly the best character – to the most obscure cult b-movie gem, and his hot takes often require heat resistant gloves to handle.

He’s super modern too, so his favorite movies include Jaws, Die Hard, The Thing, Ghostbusters and Batman. He can be found as i_Padds on Twitter making bad puns.
