What to expect from season 2 of Another Life

There are many questions that need to be answered in the second season. After discovering that the Achaia are hostile and hell-bent on either destroying or enslaving the human race, only the crew of the Salvare know of the alien race’s intentions.

Even after saving the Zakir from the artifact that was destroying their planet, the crew of the Salvare could only stand there and watch as their new alien allies were obliterated by the Achaia. It’ll be a race against time for them to return to Earth but with the Earthlings falsely celebrating the Achaians are peaceful, they are at risk of being destroyed or ever enslaved.

There’s also the question of the new A.I William accidentally created. Is she peaceful or is she also hellbent on killing the crew of the Salvare? Once again, many questions that need many answers.
