With such an oversaturated market full of conventional themes. It’s uncommon to find a new Christmas movie or series that is truly excellent. Netflix, on the other hand, managed to produce a surprise holiday-themed smash in 2020. Dash & Lily, a teen sitcom that has no business being as excellent as it is, and great nostalgic fodder for folks who have a soft spot for New York City when the snow falls and the lights twinkle.
Dash and Lily assisted in establishing that Christmas vibe over the 2020 Holidays. The film, like its tale and relationship, will be remembered as a whirlwind series that was terminated by Netflix after only one season. Dash & Lily is a Netflix Original romantic adolescent drama series developed by Joe Tracz and based on David Levithan and Rachel Cohn’s novel Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares. The show is created by 21 Laps Entertainment. This is the same company that brought you Stranger Things and the upcoming Shadow and Bone. Continue reading the articles to know more about the show.
What Is the Movie Based on?
The show, based on Rachel Cohn and David Levithan’s popular YA book Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares, follows two teenagers (Austin Abrams and Midori Francis) who have never met but correspond via notebook, sending each other on dares throughout NYC at Christmastime, and it won many hearts with its merry and bright charm and the way it whimsically captures the spirit of the city.
When the program premiered in November 2020, it was like a holiday miracle. With the show being so binge-able and containing just eight 25-ish minute episodes. Also the show being based on a series of books. It’s reasonable to question whether another season is in the works. We’ve broken down Dash and Lily’s future below.
Is There Going to Be a Season 2 of Dash & Lily?
Although Lily may disagree, we’d say it’s acceptable to become a Scrooge: Dash & Lily will not return for a second season. In October 2021, Deadline revealed the bad news. It did, regrettably, make sense when Netflix eventually made the news. This news stated that there was no word on the show’s fate until nearly a year. After it debuted on the streaming site, and renewals normally come only a few months after anything premieres.
It’s unknown why there won’t be any more Dash & Lily episodes. After all, it was both a critically regarded series that earned a slew of Daytime Emmys. Along with being a huge hit that arrived just in time to pair well with a cup of hot chocolate. Because the original material is part of a series. There may have been discussions in the early stages of development to adapt the remainder of the books as well. For example, following the premiere of Season 1, showrunner Joe Tracz told that he “would love to be able to go back and do the second book,” and would even be glad to create the third.

Given the late cancellation, we’d imagine that Netflix isn’t pursuing a Season 2. Since it’s still deciding what projects to prioritize while the epidemic continues to affect film and TV production.
What Will the Plot of Dash & Lily Season 2 Be?
Although we would want to beg Santa for a second season of Dash & Lily if we could, fans may be thankful that the program concluded wonderfully wrapped in a bow like a large Christmas present. It ended with the ultimate rom-com finale: the two returning to the location where it all began. This place NYC literary institution The Strand, where they were trapped overnight. Eventually it got together, making all of our Christmas desires come true.
It would have made sense for the series to continue following Rachel Cohn and David Levithan’s novels. If their kiss wasn’t the end of the series, but rather a nice beginning. The Twelve Days of Dash & Lily, which likewise takes place around the holidays and a year after the events of the first novel, would have come next. While Dash and Lily are still together, they are about to face some new challenges. After dealing with her grandfather’s health issues earlier in the year. Lily is surprisingly unprepared to celebrate the Christmas season as usual in the novel.
It follows Dash and his buddies as they try to cheer her up. So that he doesn’t miss out on her favorite NYC holiday event. So, if the program had adapted that sequel, it would have likely continued to examine their romance. Along with examining how their mental health affects them individually and collectively. We would also have learned more about the sparks that flew between Sofia (Keana Marie) and Boomer (Dante Brown) at the first season’s conclusion. While we won’t get to see all of the decked-out city streets on film. There’s nothing preventing you from putting up your own twinkly lights at home and reading the rest of the book. Thank heavens The Strand will always have that kiss beneath the mistletoe!
