Limitless Season 2: This TV series hasn’t been renewed for the second installment yet. But, there are huge hopes that Limitless sequel would release. There are reports that the producers have got a new storyline for it. Fans are also going crazy and demanding the showrunners to release the second season at the earliest.
Let’s see who, Amazon or Netflix, welcomes it on its network, if it’s renewed. Until there’s any official word, let us check out its speculations, preview, and predictions. As per a report, the producers have finally come up with a concept for the upcoming installment. So, it shouldn’t be canceled by any means. The latest developments indicate towards a good news.
Limitless Season 2 Release Date
As the season1 of Limitless was extremely successful, huge hopes have taken shape automatically. Expectations have also risen for a new season. However, it hasn’t been officially announced yet.
According to the latest reports, Amazon has picked it up and should release by March 2018 (according to ModUp).
As per the sources, NZT is the reason for the show not getting its renewal. The streaming networks – Amazon and Netflix can’t control their viewers’ age, but they can control what kind of series they can stream to the public. They are already aware of it.
Why Are Networks Shying To Air Limitless Season 2?
A source said that the ratings of the first installment went up high due to the controversial plot related to the NZT pill. It made it a big hit on CBS during its initial days of release. But, after that, it faced a drop in ratings. Thus, CBS took a decision not to renew it for a future installment.
Earlier, there was a buzz in the industry that either Amazon or Netflix will pick it up. Only after that, the second installment of Limitless would arrive. However, none of the two have confirmed it yet. It’s because both the networks are taking their time to think if they should renew it or not.
Since the series revolves around a controversial drug – NZT, Netflix and Amazon have opted not to gamble. So, unfortunately, they decided not to pick the sequel up.
Fans are still optimistic about the series’ renewal, but showrunner Sweeny has already confirmed that it has no future.
I’m truly sad to report that #Limitless will not continue on any platform. Thanks so much to everyone who watched.

Limitless Season 2 Plot/Storyline
The executive producer, Craig Sweeny said that they have come up with a new concept for the upcoming installment. The NZT will still remain as an important part of the TV series story. NZT might be slowly removed from the storyline. So, Sen. Edward Mora may face problems without it.
But, this time, the sequel will revolve around other characters like Rebecca and Boyle instead of just being Brian Finch as the central character. Brian is still an interesting character. It is reported by Celebeat.
