Netflix renews Into the Night for Season 2
Staff Reporter | On 01, Jul 2020
Netflix has renewed Into the Night for a second season.
The apocalyptic thriller, inspired by Jacek Dukaj’s sci-fi novel The Old Axolotl, begins with a sudden solar event, as the sun inexplicably starts killing everything in its path. The show centres on the lucky passengers and crew of an overnight flight out of Brussels, as they attempt to fly west — into the safety of the dark night. The plane’s manifest is multinational and multilingual, with passengers rich and poor, young and old, civilian and military. The seemingly ordinary travelers share but one thing: A desire to survive the sun — and each other — by any means necessary.
Directed by Inti Calfat and Dirk Verheye and created by Jason George, the series touched down on Netflix in May.
“This thriller might be ludicrous, but it’s never less than ludicrously entertaining,” we wrote in our review. “Expect a second season to be announced in a matter of days.”
Now, a matter of weeks after the show’s debut, Netflix has confirmed that a second season is on the way.
“We’ve been thrilled by the global response to Into the Night, and I’m excited to share that we’ll be doing a second season,” says George. “It’s been amazing to see how fans across the world have connected with the multinational passengers and crew of BE Airways Flight 21. We are excited to continue their journey.”
