Rapman's latest show Supacell hit our Netflix screens earlier this month and fans have been going wild with praise about the sci-fi series.

The show sees five ordinary Black South Londoners brought together as they possess unique supernatural powers necessary to combat a near-catastrophic future.

It has had a huge critical response, and counts Jay-Z and Idris Elba among fans, but will there be a Supacell season 2 or has it been cancelled? Here's everything you need to know.

Will there be another season of Supacell and what is its release date?

So far, nothing has been confirmed as to if Supacell has been renewed for a second series or whether it will only get one series.

However, fans and critics are hoping for a series 2 of the hit Netflix show, and its renewal will depend on many factors, including the popularity of the show.

Creator Rapman has spoken out about his plans for the show, telling Radio Times: "For the beginning of the show, I always tell everyone that season one of Supacell to me is like Batman Begins. It's just beginning. You've got to see where it goes next to see who these people really are."

He also said that he wants three seasons, and said: "I suppose we have to see how season 1 performs, but I know I've very much made clear that I want to do three seasons minimum," he said.

"I've got a three-season story in my head," he said. "[I'm] not saying it can't go over. But right now I know where it goes to. I know where... what the story is from up to season 3."

Supacell has smashed streaming service records and has been watched over 12 million times already and is still going strong in the charts, so we hope it gets picked up for a second season.

In a recent Instagram post, Rapman revealed that Suapcell has taken the number one spot in the UK Netflix chart after being the most watched series over the past couple of weeks.

It has been the most-watched English language series on Netflix, with a whopping 11.8 million views over the past two weeks.
