the movies that made us season 2

More ’80s nostalgia is coming your way. Netflix has greenlit The Movies That Made Us for a second season, bringing another season of The Nacelle Company’s docuseries that explores beloved ’80s films. The first season visited classics like Die HardGhostbustersDirty Dancing, and Home Alone (the latter of which is technically an ’80s movie), but it’s not yet confirmed what films the second season will cover.

Netflix announced that it has renewed The Movies That Made Us for a second season. The docuseries from the creators behind the fuzzy nostalgia that is The Toys That Made Us thanked fans for supporting the show and helping to bring it back for season 2 in a video posted to both Instagram and Twitter.

In the video, a person is seen crossing off the the “1” in the messy hand-written text on a VHS tape that says “The Movies That Made Us Season 1,” and writing in “2.” Movies comes from Toys creator Brian Volk-Weiss, who revealed that they aimed to shape each episode’s tone around each movie that they spotlighted.

“For Home Alone, we wanted a comedy. That was one thing,” said Volk-Weiss. “We really wanted to do a holiday movie. This show is coming out right around Thanksgiving and we really wanted a holiday vibe. Die Hard obviously is also, to a certain extent, a holiday film.”

The Movies That Made Us spin-off debuted in November 2019. Here is the statement from Netflix and The Nacelle Company, who teamed up to develop The Movies That Made Us following the popularity for The Toys That Made Us, which debuted on Netflix in 2017:
