The second most-watched show on Netflix “Away” made its touch down on the streaming platform recently. At the end of the ten episodes, season viewers were left wondering if there be season 2 of Away. “Away Season 2” is yet to be announced.
The science fiction web series debuted on Netflix on 4th September 2020. Andrew Hinderaker is the creator of the show. The show’s announcement came on 10th June 2018. The show is based on an Esquire article of the same name written by Chris Jones. The timing of the show began on 26th August 2019 and ended on 5th February 2020.
Release Date of “Away Season 2”
The firsts season ended recently and it is too early to comment on a date for the second season. And with the pandemic raging through the globe, we are most likely to wait for a while before any announcement comes through.
One of the writers of the show, Jessica Goldberg has commented that she has some ideas about what is coming next. We might see Space X on the show or the show might explore some of the biggest questions in the universe.
The Plot of the Show
The show follows the first crewed expedition to Mars, the Joint Mars Initiative. We see an international crew consisting of a Chinese female chemist, a Russian male cosmonaut, an Indian male medical officer astronaut, and a British African male botanist, commanded by American female astronaut Emma Green. Emma has a teenage daughter and a husband who trained as an astronaut with equivalent experience to Emma. Emma’s husband might have commanded the mission except for his grounding due to a medical condition. The three-year mission takes off from the Moon. The crew members do not trust Emma’s ability to command, based on her performance in an accidental fire during pre-launch preparation.
The writers took care that the first season of the show focused on the world’s five largest space agencies working together to put the first humans on Mars. If the show does return for a second season we might see organizations like Space X getting a place in the story.
The Cast of the Show
As we do not have a second season as of now, we are yet to know the cast of the second season. But we do hope that the cast of the first season reprises their respective roles. The cast includes
- Hilary Swank as Emma Green
- Josh Charles as Matt Logan
- Vivian Wu as Lu
- Mark Ivanir as Misha
- Ato Essandoh as Kwesi
- Ray Panthaki as Ram
- Talitha Bateman as Alexis Logan among others.
