“When clues to his brother’s murder lead Poncho to a fire brigade, he joins it to investigate further and finds romance, family – and a serial killer.” High Heat (original title: Donde hubo fuego) made its worldwide Netflix debut on August 17, 2022. Typically, fans are never happy when it’s just one season of a show, so it’s unsurprising that many are already looking to the future and wondering whether a High Heat season 2 is on the horizon. The Mexican crime telenovela series — following an erotic dancer turned undercover fireman — was created by José Ignacio Valenzuela (Who Killed Sara?), and received mixed reviews from critics upon its release.
With 39 episodes of a plethora of juicy, yet cringe-worthy lines, long-smoldering looks, and plenty of shirtless moments, Netflix’s High Heat sure made an impression on viewers. If you’re wondering what’s going on with the telenovela and whether a second season could be green-lit, you’re in the right place.

Will there be a High Heat season 2 on Netflix?
At this time of writing, Netflix has yet to reveal whether it has canceled or renewed High Heat for season 2.
With the mixed reviews, we’re not too sure whether the Mexican drama will make a return to the streamer, as currently there is no news, and the ending of season 1 wrapped things up pretty well, so it could be a stand-alone series. However, it’s still early days. It’s been less than a month since the telenovela made its debut on Netflix so there is still plenty of time before the streamer makes an official decision. It all depended on the overall response, and how much viewers are enjoying the series. According to What’s On Netflix, in the first three weeks of High Heat’s release, it “fared well” with viewers slowly making their way through the many episodes, but it was described as a potential “slow burn” meaning that it could find its momentum a little later compared to other series.
All 39 episodes are currently available to stream on Netflix, so if you want a renewal make sure to rack up those numbers.
Stay tuned for further updates on High Heat season 2!
