Regardless of that prime viewership, although, its important reception has been something however top-ten worthy. It presently sits at a “rotten” 25 % on Rotten Tomatoes, with a good decrease viewers rating of simply 23 %. These sorts of numbers positively do not appear to scream “we wish a sequel,” however that does not imply Netflix will not go forward with one anyway.
There have definitely been circumstances of buzzy however poorly-received tasks at Netflix getting the inexperienced gentle for sequels (or a number of seasons, within the case of TV exhibits). Within the case of Thunder Pressure, it is bought some critical star energy behind it.
