The highly popular space travel drama, Away Season 2, is still awaiting renewal from Netflix. However, showrunner Jessica Goldberg teases big ideas for the next season.
The first season of Away debuted on the streaming giant just last week, and it already garnered high views. It even landed on the number one spot days just after it premiered. Now, fans are already anticipating the release of Away Season 2.
Season 1 of the series portrays the victory of finally conquering space travel, yet at the same time, experiencing the suffering of leaving loved ones behind. It’s no wonder why so many fans are captivated by the drama that surrounds the series.
Created by Andrew Hinderaker, the sci-fi drama series follows a team of astronauts on their mission to land on Mars. Willing to take the challenge, the main character, Emma Green, deals with the difficult journey while sacrificing her life and family.
Showrunner teases big ideas for season 2
While Away Season 2 awaits its renewal, showrunner Jessica Goldberg is already planning the series’ direction. Goldberg teases of bringing the largest aerospace companies into the story. To recall, the last season depicted the team’s successful landing on the planet Mars. Owing to that, fans are now speculating whether the team would find life on Mars.

However, Goldberg promised the viewers that finding alien life is not part of the story. Talking to Inverse, Goldberg shares a glimpse of her storyline. She said:
“When I say life, I mean like a microorganism. I don’t mean an alien, the show would never go in that direction.”
Going into space mission requires a large amount of budget, and bringing the companies in season 1 is an essential part of the story. Goldberg further stated:
“I do feel that’s a story that’s super important. Right now, we can’t get anywhere without that private sector money, and I think it would be great to bring that storyline in.”
Thus, Away Season 2 might feature the iconic Space X, owned by the multi-billionaire entrepreneur, Elon Musk. Although, there is no official confirmation from Netflix or Goldberg yet.
