Netflix’s The Society has been renewed for a second season.
It hasn’t been that long since Christopher Keyser’s teen drama aired on Netflix, but in lightning time, the streaming giant has officially extended 'The Society' for another installment.
Before its premiere, The Society was already been hyped as 'Gossip Girl' meets 'Lord of the Flies.' The 10-part episode pursued a group of typically sexy teens whose parents strangely disappeared as their New England town was transformed into an unpleasant creepy substitute form of the place they call home.
The Society clearly didn’t play out as an upbeat dream. Season one ended with a *major* cliffhanger and certainly left the door open for another season. Fortunately, Keyser and the cast will return for more drama.
The revelation was made on the official Netflix YouTube handle and announced The Society Season 2 is set to go into production aiming for a 2020 release. The ensemble said: “To the citizens of New Ham, we have some big news…really big news. Like bigger than that time Gordie figured out we were in a parallel universe. We’re making season two of The Society!"
The first season of the YA series, which premiered back in May, dealt with what would happen if high-schoolers were left without anyone else. After a school outing is canceled, the group of rich East Coast teenagers (including Big Little Lies‘ Kathryn Newton) came back to their town of West Ham to find every other person has vanished.
The town (yet nobody else in it) has apparently been shipped to the middle of nowhere, the internet doesn’t function, and their survival depends on their capacity to create a new society called New Ham.
A few teenagers endeavor to build a democracy, others push for fascism or a military state. Some even create deliberate mayhem for their own profit.
Ordinary teen social dynamics transitions into insightful sociopolitical experiments and contentions throughout the first season. There was murder, sex, sentiment, riddle, and political intrigue.
In addition, the approaching supernatural issue of whether they’ve been moved to alternate world hangs over the series with the guarantee of considerably more WTF events like the season 1 ending cliffhanger that showed the principal town of West Ham and every one of the grown-ups and children are still alive a year after the adolescents faded.
The parents have seemingly remembered the obliterated teens, yet the question remains of which adults knew that the teens would go missing and who to blame.
Netflix The Society stars Kathryn Newton, Gideon Adlon, Sean Berdy, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Jacques Colimon, Olivia DeJonge, Alex Fitzalan, Kristine Froseth, Jose Julian, Alexander MacNicoll, Toby Wallace and Rachel Keller.
