Another Life was set to return for a second season in 2021, however, following dismal ratings and a few indications, the show has been canceled. Here’s what we know about the third season of Another Life being canceled.
Aaron Martin’s sci-fi series Another Life is a Netflix Original. Katie Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) and Selma Blair (Hellboy) star in the series.
Niko Breckinridge, an astronaut, leads a group of astronauts into space in quest of sentient life. Their goal is to discover the origins of a mysterious alien artifact that has appeared on Earth. On what could be a one-way trip, the crew faces unprecedented peril during their mission.
Is a third season of Another Life in the works?
Netflix has yet to announce any plans for a third season of the show as of November 2021. However, this does not necessarily imply that the streaming service will terminate the series, especially given the fact that season 2 performed exceptionally well with viewers, earning an audience score of 85 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
In addition to this high rating, the second season garnered a lot of positive feedback, with many fans saying that it was the best season yet, surpassing the first.
With all of this in mind, Netflix is likely to renew Another Life for a third season for the sake of the original series’ growing viewership and, most crucially, for the sake of the tale.
Hopefully, we’ll hear some exciting news in the coming months, but in the meantime, read on to find out when season 3 might be available.
Who would have been in the cast of Another Life season 3?
On and off the screen, Katee Sackhoff was the captain of the Another Life ship as both a star and a producer.
She had stated a desire for the show to go for at least three seasons prior to its discontinuation.
In an interview with Collider in 2019, Sackhoff said: “So, for the first three seasons, we know where the programme might go. That was uncharted territory for me as an actor. It was fantastic to be a part of those discussions and to have an opinion. I adore this character, as well as the cast and crew, and I’d do anything in my power to ensure that it returns for a long time.”
If the program had come back, it was likely that a major portion of the cast would have returned as well.
Justin Chatwin plays Erik Wallace, Samuel Anderson plays William, Elizabeth Ludlow plays Cas Isakovic, Lina Renna plays Jana Breckinridge-Wallace, Selma Blair plays Harper Glass, Tongayi Chirisa plays Richard Ncube, Alexander Eling plays Javier Almanzar, Blu Hunt plays August Catawnee, JayR Tinaco plays Zayn Petrossian, A.J. Rivera plays Bernie Martinez, Parveen Dosan (Dillon Conner).
What would have happened in the third season of Another Life?
If it’s any consolation, Another Life season two did at least have a satisfying conclusion. Having said that, there were still a lot of possible narrative strands for a third season to pick up.
Niko’s crew found in season two that the Achaians are essentially artificial creatures created by genuine aliens. Using this information, the group uses a computer virus to bring the artifact down, causing the “Achaians” to flee. Not only does this release the Earth, but it turns out that Niko’s deeds have also freed hundreds of other planets throughout the galaxy.
Our characters entered a new era of freedom and space exploration after that. Niko and the rest of the Salvare crew journey to these new worlds in order to meet new species and aid humanity as a whole, proving the “Achaians” wrong.
If Season 3 were to happen, they would almost certainly have faced opposition from the Achaians or one of the other planets.
