This post contains spoilers for Who Killed Sara? Season 1.
The central mystery of Netflix's latest top streaming show, Who Killed Sara?, is, well, exactly what it sounds like. The crime thriller premiered March 24, and rapidly claimed the No. 1 spot on Netflix's top streaming chart. Who Killed Sara?'s ten episodes took the audience on a lurid journey through the dark underground of the powerful Lazcano
family, marked by betrayal, cheating, lies, murder, sex trafficking, and pretty much every crime one could think of. As soon as you start to trust a character, the show takes a turn that makes you question your allegiance. There's so much left out of the narrative that audiences are forced to fill in the gaps, becoming entangled in mystery after mystery. If we've learned anything from Who Killed Sara?, it's this: trust no one.
In true Netflix form, the season one finale reveals a trove of new information, with very little resolution. It'd be way too easy if they just told us, straight up, who killed Sara. With a title like that, you've got to make things as complicated as they can be, and the show does an excellent job thickening the plot. So, at the end of ten episodes, we still don't know who was truly responsible for the parasailing accident that killed Sara. We don't even know if the parasailing accident is what truly killed her. And the ultimate fan question: could Sara still be alive? Luckily, Netflix won't make fans wait too long to find out the truth about Sara, Alex, and the Lazcano family. Here is everything we know about Who Killed Sara? season two.
Has Netflix confirmed a Who Killed Sara? season two?
In an unusual move, Netflix confirmed a second season for the show just days after its release. With the show topping the streaming chart, Netflix announced that not only will there be more of Who Killed Sara? to satisfy all our inner detective desires, but that fans won't have to wait too long for new episodes, either. Season two of Who Killed Sara? is set to premiere on Netflix May 19.
Which characters will return in the new season?
All of the cast of the Lazcano family—the patriarch César, matriarch Mariana, and the children, Rodolfo, Chema, and Elisa—will be in the new season. Alex and Sara Guzman will return, revealing more about Sara's past that Alex never knew. The new season will introduce new characters to the story, as well, with Daniel Giménez Cacho, Matías Novoa, and Antonio de la Vega joining the cast.
What will season two be about?
At the end of the first season, a lot happens and just as much remains unsolved. It's revealed that Mariana knew that Sara was pregnant with César's baby, and that she told her surrogate son/lover Elroy to tamper with the parachute harness in order to kill Sara. However, we don't actually see Elroy cut the parachute; he seems to pull out of the plan. Mariana cleans the boat, concealing evidence and throwing the knife she gave Elroy into the water. So it seems like Mariana is the prime suspect behind the killing, but we find out that there's more to Sara's side of the story. Sara saw a video in César's business partner Sergio's office, of an unknown man (Sergio? César?) brutally killing Flor Sanchez, a woman who was being held against her will and forced into sex work, as part of the César's secret casino basement sex trafficking operation. She stole the tape and gave it to her friend to hide. César talked to Sergio at the lake house, implying that he would take care of Sara. So César, between Sara's pregnancy with his child and the fact that she saw the murder of Flor on tape, has the clearest motive for her murder.
However, in the final moments of the season finale, Alex finds a secret journal that Sara kept. It's filled with evidence that Sara was struggling with her mental health at the time before her death, and that she was having suicidal thoughts. One note says: "What if I'm crazy like him?" leaving who "him" is up in the air. Alex calls Elisa and tells her they were all wrong in their investigation. In Sara's secret journal, there's a drawing of an unmarked grave. Alex goes to the spot and digs up a skull. So, whose skull is it? Who is the "him" Sara is talking about? We don't actually see Sara's body after she's brought to the hospital; only a doctor who reports that they couldn't save her. This leaves the inevitable burning question: could Sara be alive? The preview of season two at the end of season one sets up a deeper dive into Sara's past, including sessions with a psychiatrist and an instance of self-harm. What was really going on with Sara eighteen years ago? All of this could be revealed in season two.
