July was a very busy month for Netflix Originals, and one such title had many subscribers scratching their heads over. Another Life, the latest in the ever-growing line of sci-fi series caused quite a stir online when it was released in July. Fans of the series will be asking if Another Life has been renewed yet, not to mention when we can expect a second season release date. Well, there’s no news yet but let’s take a look at whether or not Another Life could return for a second season and when we could expect to see a release date,
Another Life is a Netflix Original sci-fi series created by Aaron Martin. The series stars Battlestar Galactica hero Katie Sackhoff and Hellboy star Selma Blair. Like many of Netflix’s latest Originals, Another Life was shot in 4K, showcasing the tech Netflix has available to make the best looking shows.

Another Life Season 2 Netflix Renewal Status
Official Netflix Renewal Status: Pending (Last Updated: 16/08/2019)
At the time of writing, it has been weeks since Another Life was released on Netflix, and we are still yet to hear about any news for renewal. Typically Netflix can wait from one month to half a year before announcing a series has been renewed. Thanks to the amount of criticism the first season has faced from critics and subscribers alike, we’d be surprised if the series were to be renewed. While we understand the series now has an established fan base, renewal ultimately comes down to viewing figures.
Does the story need another season?
There are many questions that need to be answered in the second season. After discovering that the Achaia are hostile and are 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 Achaian’s 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.
How have subscribers and critics reacted to Another Life?
Sci-fi series has always been hit and miss, regardless of which network helped produce the series. But when they’re good they’re usually fantastic, but as for first impressions of Another Life, both fans and critics have failed to be impressed.
Of course, critics aren’t always the best to form an opinion on the series, so we took to Twitter to see how subscribers reacted:

So, I’m five minutes in to the new Netflix series Another Life and I’ve already cringed hard on multiple occasions. This doesn’t bode well.

Well I made it 25 mins into dreadful new Netflix show Another Life, before deciding my current life is just too short to watch this garbage

As you can see some subscribers haven’t taken to the show all that well.
While Katie Sackhoff hasn’t responded directly to criticism of the series, she did take to Twitter to express her gratitude for a positive review of the series.

Another Life Season 2 Netflix Release Date
Filming for the first season took place across four months in 2018, August to November respectively.
We’d be unlikely to see the series drop in July next year unless filming begins in August. Of course, this all depends on whether or not the series is renewed by Netflix.
To play devil’s advocate, our prediction is Another Life season 2 would arrive in the fall of 2020.
