Netflix unexpectedly licensed The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem in May 2022 as a Netflix Original and we’ve got good news, it’s coming back for more episodes in July and in addition, it’s also been renewed for a full second season. Here’s what you need to know.
The first 10 episodes are available in at least nine countries, including Netflix, the United Kingdom, Poland and France.
Since the show’s addition to Netflix on May 20th, the show has managed to only appear in the Netflix Top 10s in Israel and Poland.
The new series is a drama based on the bestseller by Sarit Yishai Levy. The story tells of the Armoza family of Jerusalemites, who were rooted in Jerusalem's past years prior to the creation of the state.
The show first aired on Israel’s YES channel between June 6th, 2021, and October 27th, 2021 with a break between July and September.
When it first appeared in Israel, the series was met with mixed reactions. Ynet notably said the series “finds it difficult to recreate the book’s charm and suffers from slow-scenes, worn-out dialogues, excessive skips between periods that become exhausting gimmicks.”
As with some of the other shows Netflix has acquired from YES and international networks, it’s been edited down. There will be 20 episodes for each of the 44 chapters found on YES.
Thankfully, we haven’t got long to wait until the next batch of episodes arrive on Netflix.
The 10 remaining episodes of The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem will be available on Netflix in all 9 countries on July 29, 2022.
Good news! Yes Studios already confirms that there will be a second season. EAST Tel Aviv confirmed the second season in December 2021.
As of yet, we don’t quite know when exactly The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem season 2 will return to YES Drama let alone Netflix. Multiple Israeli media reports suggest that the series will be back towards the end 2022. Variety reports that the filming of the second season will begin in June 2022.
At this rate, we’d expect the show to arrive a little earlier than the period of time it took for season 1 to drop but right now, don’t expect a release date on Netflix until at least 2023.
