Netflix is notorious for canceling shows that received rave reviews from critics and were loved by the audiences as well. But there have been several instances where a series got mixed reviews but the streaming platform still goes ahead to renew the project with Season 2.

Shows like ’13 Reasons Why’, ‘Fuller House’, and ‘Arrested Development’ were absolutely amazing at the beginning, but even fans realized that they went on for too long. However, there was one series that fans have been wanting to see back on screen and it’s called ‘Another Life’. The first season aired in 2019 and after a gap of 2 long years, the sci-fi show is returning for another season on the streaming platform.

‘Another Life’ revolves around astronaut Niko Breckinridge leading a team of astronauts into space in search of intelligent life. Their mission is to find the source of a mysterious alien artifact that appeared on Earth. During their mission, the crew faces a lot of problems and dangerous situations which might make it a one-way trip.

Season 1 got mixed reviews, but it seems fans liked the series and that’s why the streaming service is bringing it back for Season 2. Here’s everything we know.

Release date and how to watch

Season 2 of ‘Another Life’ will be premiering exclusively on Netflix on Thursday, October 14, at 3:01 am EST. Viewers can subscribe to Netflix directly, via a mobile app store (App Store, Google Play). You can also watch it by signing up for the platform’s free trial. Apart from that, viewers can also opt for different subscription plans provided by the streaming giant. A premium plan that allows more people to watch the service on different screens simultaneously, costs $18 per month. Meanwhile, the basic US plan costs $9 per month.



"Another Life centers on astronaut Niko Breckinridge (Katee Sackhoff) who is focused on searching for alien intelligence. She leads a crew on a mission to explore the genesis of an alien artifact. As Niko and her young crew investigate, they face unimaginable danger on what might very well be a one-way mission."


After taking a long route through space and surviving a couple of planets, the Salvare finally reach Pi Canis Majoris. They land on a planet where the signal from the artifact is the strongest and discover the sorry state the Achaia has left it in. However, Niko decides to help destroy the artifact on Zakir. But everything changes when they come face-to-face with a lot of alien ships. At first, Niko believes that the aliens have come for them, but they surround Zakir and destroy the planet.

In the end, we see that August, who had sex with both Javier and Oliver, is now pregnant. Bernie and Zayn are in a relationship, and Cas has made her peace with Niko.
