Cheerleaders have always been a big part of American teen drama. The Netflix show Dare Me (2019) is one of them. The show is based on the novel by Megan Abbott. The story revolves around the lives of a few competitive cheerleaders and the turns their lives take as a new coach is assigned to the squad. Even though the show is categorized as a teen drama, the show does not fit into the stereotypical teen drama cliches. The plot involves scandals like cheating, obsessions, and brutal bullying. But what makes this series even more thrilling and dark is the murder. The show features Willa Fitzgerald, Herizen Guardiola, Marlo Kelly, and Zach Roerig. The show was created by Megan Abbott herself. It aired on US networks between 2019 – 2020.
Dare Me Season 2 Release Date
The first season of the show aired on December 29th, 2019, and ended on March 8th, 2020. The US network discontinued the show a month after concluding the first season. The network hasn’t disclosed any reason behind such an abrupt end. Despite having rights to continue with the series, Netflix has declared that there aren’t any plans about season 2.

Dare Me Season 1 Recap
Colette French (Willa Fitzgerald) is the new cheerleading coach at Sutton Grove High School, and she is tough on her students. Unsurprisingly, Beth Cassidy (Marlo Kelly) rebels when she is demoted from team captain, whereas Addy Hanlon (Herizen Guardiola) warms up to her new coach and becomes interested in her personal life. When it is revealed that Colette has been cheating on her husband Matt (Rob Heaps) with a local Marine recruiter named Will Mosley (Zach Roerig), the series’ power dynamics shift from episode to episode. In the seventh episode, “Scorched Earth,” Will dies shockingly. As Colette discovers her lover’s dead body and calls Addy for assistance, the series transitions from teen drama to a true-crime thriller. Soon after, Beth realizes that Will was most likely murdered and that Corporal Kurtz (Chris Zylka), a man who sexually assaulted her, may have information about the case. Dare Me season 1 concludes with cryptic narration and no traditional narrative closure, implying that Colette and Matt know the truth about Will’s death.
