Will The Baby-Sitters Club be renewed for a second season?

The Baby-Sitters Club is one of the best family shows on Netflix right now. Will it be renewed for a second season?

If you haven’t watched The Baby-Sitters Club yet, you need to right now. This is a great show for the entire family, especially those with young girls in the house. The question for many after binge-watching the first season is whether The Baby-Sitters Club Season 2 is going to happen.

Based on the books by Ann M. Martin, the Netflix Original series is a great 30-minute show that takes us through a story of friendship and growth. A group of friends create “The Baby-Sitters Club,” as a way to connect with each other again as well as offering the parents of the local area a great way to get a babysitter in their time of need. That club slowly grows as new people join.

It’s an excellent family-friendly show. The girls are about 12 or 13, bringing us stories from their viewpoints. It’s about figuring out who they are, finding their voices, and knowing when they can lean on each other.

Is there a need for a second season?

Does The Baby-Sitters Club Season 2 need to happen? I’d say so!

While the first season ended in a way that would be a decent enough ending, there are just too many opportunities for Netflix to pass. This is an inclusive and diverse show. Not only are the main characters from different backgrounds and races, but there’s also an important episode about self-identification and transitioning children. On top of that, it is a show that reminds girls that they can be bosses (without that stupid “Girl Boss” label).

This is a show that encourages advocacy. It encourages women to speak their mind, follow their hearts, but also listen to each other. We need more of these positive shows in our lives.

The Baby-Sitters Club Retro Set

When will we hear about The Baby-Sitters Club Season 2?

This is Netflix, so we’re looking at a decision being made within a month or two of release. Since the first season came at the beginning of July, that means we’re looking at the beginning of September at the latest for a renewal notice.

However, I don’t think it will take that long. The show holds a 100% score from critics on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s a 95% score from the audience. Most people binge-watched all 10 episodes within a day, it was just an easy watch! I think we’ll hear about a second season before the month is even up.
