It’s been more than two years since season 1 of Another Life premiered on Netflix so it’s safe to say that fans have been waiting a long time for the newly released season 2.
The new instalment picks up right from the dramatic cliffhanger that concluded season 1 and the stakes are ramped up even higher in the new batch of episodes.
Despite the series having only just returned, fans of Another Life have wasted no time in asking if the sci-fi show could be renewed for season 3.
Another Life season 2 release date and plot
Season 2 of Another Life landed on Netflix on October 14th, 2021.
The new season continues from the dramatic cliffhanger that saw the alien race known as the Achaia destroy the planet Zakir.
In season 2, the expanding alien empire has turned its sights on Earth and already has disguised agents living among the population, convincing humanity that the Achaia are a friendly race.
Knowing that is very much not the case, it’s up to Niko Breckinridge and the crew of the Salvare to convince the people of Earth of the Achaia’s true universe-conquering intentions before it’s too late.
Will Another Life return for season 3?
Netflix has yet to renew Another Life for season 3 at the time of writing.
That comes as little surprise as the show’s second season has only just been released and Netflix usually takes a few weeks to analyse viewing figures before committing to another season. We’ll be sure to keep you updated on the show’s fate as we learn more.
Another Life has a tough challenge ahead after its first season was met with mixed reviews and so its second season needs to be well-received to earn a third instalment.
One positive that fans can take is that the ending of season 2 absolutely leaves room for more as it promises new adventures for the Salvare and its crew.
Although, if needed, the ending of season 2 could also work as a series finale if Another Life is not renewed for season 3.
Katee Sackhoff wants more
Another Life’s lead actress and a producer on season 1, Katee Sackhoff, has previously revealed that about her desire for the series to continue for multiple seasons.
Speaking to Collider in 2019, Katee Sackhoff said: “So, we know where the show potentially will go for the first three seasons. As an actor, that was new for me. To really be a part of those conversations and to have an opinion was really cool.
“I love this character, and I love the cast and the crew, and I want to do everything in my power to see it come back, for many years.”
Whether Katee Sackhoff gets her wish and Another Life is renewed for season 3 remains to be seen.
Season 2 of Another Life is available to stream now on Netflix after landing on Thursday, October 14th, 2021.
