Mars season 1 touched down on Netflix recently but with the second season already having aired, when will it be coming to Netflix in both the United States and abroad? Let’s take a look.
You’d be forgiven if you missed Mars when it came to Netflix on February 1st. The series dropped alongside hundreds of other titles which also happened to be on a Friday so most attention by Netflix would’ve been thrown onto the Originals for the day. Nevertheless, many spotted the series and dived in.
The series comes from National Geographic and merges its traditional documentary format with a dramatization in the future akin to the likes of a Syfy series.
Among the names involved in the project is Ron Howard who serves as an executive producer on the show. The cast for the future segments includes Ben Cotton, Alberto Ammann, Anamaria Marinca, and Clémentine Poidatz.
Featured in the present documentary segments are Neil deGrasse Tyson, Andy Weir, Elon Musk and Kim Stanley Robinson.
Is there a season 2 of Mars?
Season 2 of Mars has been renewed and in fact, has already aired in the United States.
The second season aired on National Geographic from November 2018 to December 2018 with 6 new episodes.
Mars Season 2 Netflix Release Date
At the moment, there’s no official release date for the second season but based on several things, we can make an educated guess.
At the very latest, the series will now be renewed on an annual basis which means by the absolute latest, we’ll see season 2 added in February 2020.
However, we think National Geographic will strategically release season 2 should a third season get renewed. That means if it sticks to its current schedule we’ll see season 2 added in September or October 2019.
Is there going to be a season 3 of Mars from National Geographic?
Looking even further ahead, will the series be getting a third season? The show’s future is looking a little sketchy at the moment thanks to dwindling viewership numbers. What may be happening is that by shipping the series to Netflix, it can gain some additional insight into whether it’s worth producing a new season.
We’ll update this post once we hear of the release date for season 2 of Mars but let us know down below if you’re looking forward to more episodes.
