Grand Army series one was released this morning, Friday, October 16, on Netflix. The show follows five students trying to get through their high school days in peace but there is plenty of trouble and heartache along the way. With the first series now ready to watch, fans are wondering if there will be anymore new episodes.
WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Grand Army.
Grand Army is based on the 2013 play Slut by Katie Cappiello, who also served as the creator and showrunner on the Netflix series.
The drama follows the difficult lives of five teenagers who attend Grand Army High School, the largest public high school in Brooklyn.
The show’s synopsis says they must “take on a chaotic world as they fight to succeed, survive, break free, and seize the future”.
All of the teens must cope with the everyday struggles of growing up, while balancing some bigger problems.
First off, there’s Joey Del Marco (played by Odessa A’Zion) who is sexually assaulted by three of her friends.
Then there’s jock Siddhartha Pakam (Amir Bageria) who is trying to come to terms with his sexuality, and Dominique Pierre (Odley Jean) who has to support her family financially.
If this wasn’t enough, Leila (Amalia Yoo) struggles to try and find her place in the community as she gets bullied, and musician Jayson Jackson (Maliq Johnson) suffers the consequences after a prank goes wrong.
Bearing in mind all of this, there looks like there could be scope for another season.
Will there be another series of Grand Army?
As of writing this article, Grand Army has not been renewed for another season.
There is currently just one series of the drama and Netflix hasn’t revealed any plans for continuing the show’s journey.
However, it is still very early days for the show as it was only released today.
Typically, Netflix takes around a few months before announcing whether or not a show will be renewed.

So it is unlikely that a decision on the show’s future has been made just yet.
The streaming service will take into account subscribers’ reactions to the drama as well as viewing ratings beforehand.
Express.co.uk will update this article once more information has been released.
Despite the show getting attention for its hard hitting storylines, Grand Army has been in the spotlight for another reason.
When Netflix released the trailer for Grand Army last month, playwright and screenwriter Ming Peiffer tweeted allegations about how her and two other writers of colours were treated.
She wrote: “Me and the 3 writers of colour who worked on the show quit due to racist exploitation and abuse.
“The showrunner and creator went full Karen and called Netflix hr on the Black writer in the room for getting a haircut. “Yes you read that correctly. Who wants to interview us?”
Could this mean Grand Army will just have one season? EXpress.co.uk has contacted Netflix for comment.
Grand Army is available to watch on Netflix.
