Keep Breathing: Can the Melissa Barrera-led hit Netflix get a second season?

Keep Breathing: Can the Melissa Barrera-led hit Netflix get a second season? ...

Melissa Barrera stars as Liv, a New York lawyer who is stranded in a remote Canadian border where Keep Breathing is currently the number one show on Netflix. Manifest!

A bear takes her final snack bar, which is just plain rude.

Barrera, who you might recognize from Scream 5, In the Heights, or the Starz series Vida, is a theatrical sensation as she portrays Liv with nuanced intensity.

As we discuss the Keep Breathing Ending, there will be more surprises ahead. ***


Many streamers found the conclusion of the series to be ambiguous, but Keep Breathing co-creators Martin Gero and Brendan Gall have recently spoken out about the show's conclusion. Liv goes on a dangerous journey down the unforgiving river. Luckily, she is eventually saved from the water by two strangers. While all this is happening, Liv is experiencing flashbacks as well as (possibly) Lost-esque flashbacks.

Liv and her boyfriend Danny are seen flashing back as she gives birth to their child, followed by Liv coughing up water and breathing.

Gall told Entertainment Weekly that the ending is literal in that she survives. We see her wake up again and take that breath. The other question, which is open to interpretation, is whether or not the images of her and Danny going to the hospital are flash forwards or her imagined future when she is dying.

Gero added that she survives. She absolutely survives.


Keep Breathing is billed as a limited series, which technically implies that the series is completed. However, The White Lotus and Big Little Lies were also limited series and were approved for sequel seasons. Barrera is a promising actress who will star in Scream 6.

There is no official information about a second season, but it would be shocking if Netflix released another installment. We know that Liv is still alive and the creative team may investigate her post-rescue story. It's also possible that the streamer might base a second season on a different protagonist.

If the show continues to perform well, we wouldn't be surprised to hear about a second season. Decider will update this story with any new information.

Keep Breathing's sixth episode is now available on Netflix.
