At the time of writing Netflix has yet to officially renew Away for a second season. It’s not surprising considering the Sci-Fi drama only recently arrived on Netflix.

We’ve heard some rumors that Away has already been renewed, but it’s still too early for Netflix to confirm this.

Early signs that Away will be getting picked up for its second season can be credited to its popularity on Netflix.

It took only three days after its release for Away to claim the TV series top spot on Netflix US.

What can subscribers expect from Away season two?

In a tense and highly emotional end to the first season Commander Green, and her fellow astronauts, safely arrived on Mars. In doing so, the crew of the Atlas became the first humans in history to walk on the surface of Mars.

In the second season, we’ll see how the crew of the Atlas take to life on Mars. Each member of the crew has their own individual mission but arguably the most important missions belong to botanist Kwesi.

Kwesi’s task is to grow life on Mars, and if he can achieve his goal it will prove that humans could colonize the planet.

The crew is isolated on a deserted planet, millions of miles away from Earth. Tensions may rise if they aren’t careful, especially if external pressure is placed upon the crew. It will be up to Commander Green, and arguably themselves, to maintain the solidarity they finally achieved at the end of the first season.

When can we expect to see Away season two on Netflix?

This entirely depends on when Netflix decides to officially renew Away for its second season.

It’s reported that the writers and producers of Away have a three-season plan for the series. Assuming this is correct, they are likely already setting plans in motion to get production of the second season off to a smooth start.

It’s still unknown how much of a factor the COVID-19 pandemic will play a part in the series production. But taking all of the relevant factors into account we aren’t expecting to see the Away return until of least late 2021 or early 2022.
