Hungry for more Beef? You just might be in luck. The new series starring Ali Wong and Steven Yuen has just premiered on Netflix, but creator and showrunner Lee Sung Jin has a vision for the show to continue—just not in the way you’d expect.

In its 10-episode first season, the dark comedy follows Amy Lau (Wong), a successful entrepreneur, and Danny Cho (Yuen), a contractor, after they face off in a tense road rage incident. In the aftermath of the confrontation, their anger continues to consume them both, taking over of their lives, families, and businesses in the process.

Here’s what we know of where Beef could go next.

Will there be a season 2 of Beef?

At the time of writing, Netflix has not yet announced a renewal. However, Lee originally planned for the series to be an anthology. Unfortunately. that would mean saying goodbye to Yeun and Wong’s Danny and Amy, but who knows—plans could always change.

“Cards on the table, we did pitch this show as a limited anthology, so there is sort of a close-ended-ness to the story [of Danny and Amy],” Lee tells ELLE.com. “But, if given the opportunity, of course, I’d love to explore them further, because Danny and Amy, I love those characters. But yeah, by design, though, this a close-ended narrative.”

What would season 2 be about?

When asked whether an anthology series would explore other characters, beefs, or emotions, Lee elaborates, “Yeah, that was the initial pitch. I think in my 45-minute PowerPoint there was multiple other beefs and other character types to explore.” He adds, “We’ll see.”

Lee gave a similar response to The Hollywood Reporter during Beef‘s red-carpet premiere on March 31. “Fingers crossed. I hope people love the show and we get to make more,” he said at the time.

Yeun chimed in, “I hope so. Tell your friends!” Trust us, we already have.
