The universe comprises millions of solar systems and it’s a bit hard to believe that only the earth houses life. Aiming to shed further light on this mystery is Netflix’s ‘Alien Worlds’. This documentary uses a combination of facts and fiction to answer the raging question — is there life on other planets? The unscripted series applies the laws of the earth to the galaxy, to make some interesting revelations. Now, if you have finished bingeing on the show’s first edition, let’s get to the details of its second iteration.
Alien Worlds Season 2 Release Date:
‘Alien Worlds’ season 1 premiered on December 2, 2020, on Netflix, in all its entirety of four episodes. Although certain sources have branded the show as a mini-series, we presume it is only because of the first season’s short run. We are optimistic that the documentary can go on since the scope of expanding on the concept is vast. Alienology is an expansive subject and future episodes can explore additional planets, which hint at the existence of life. Additionally, since season 1 opened to a good response, Netflix would want to bank on the series’ success. We hope to get news on a renewal soon. If that happens in the next couple of months, we expect ‘Alien Worlds’ season 2 to premiere sometime in late 2021.
Alien Worlds Season 2 Cast: Who Can be in it?
Since ‘Alien Worlds’ is a documentary-style web series, there is no fixed cast per se. We meet different experts, holding knowledge in the subject of Alienology, who reveal vital information about the possibility of extraterrestrial life in the universe. The show is narrated by Sophie Okonedo, an English actress, singer, and narrator noted for her work in ‘Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls’, ‘Hotel Rwanda’, ‘Tsunami: The Aftermath’, ‘Criminal Justice’, and ‘The Secret Life of Bees’, among others. She is expected to make a comeback in season 2.
What Can Alien Worlds Season 2 be About?
The sci-fi documentary revolves around theories, which assume that life has origins outside the planet Earth. It uses CGI to recreate planets, alien species, and environments, to examine the possibility of extraterrestrial life in other parts of the universe. For instance, season 1 showcases an exoplanet named Atlas that has a thick atmosphere, which can house airborne life. Again, Janos has an environment to support highly adaptable Pentapods. Eden has an oxygen-rich atmosphere because of the presence of twin stars — which can host a teeming biosphere. On the other hand, Terra, which revolves around an aging star, holds advanced beings, which can try to colonize other planets.
Mind it, all of the above stories are based on assumptions, coupled with fiction and facts. Season 2 is expected to embrace the same concept and bring in a fresh bunch of interesting theories about life in other parts of the galaxy.
