Avenue is an American science fiction comedy-drama whose first episode aired on 19th January 2020. Armando Iannucci is the one who has created and produced the entire series. The episodes of drama streamed on HBO in the US while on Sky UK in the United Kingdom. The drama delivers a gripping story about the future where the characters visit space and takes a space journey.
In the drama, Hugh Laurie is introduced as an interplanetary ship’s captain whereas Josh Gad portrays the image of billionaire possessor of the Avenue 5 ship. A technical breakdown in the ship results in the imbalance of synthetic gravity of the ship which distracts it from its original route. Now, it won’t return back to earth before 3 years.
Viewers have watched this story with deep interest but now they have a curiosity to know what will happen next? That’s why they are quite eager to know Avenue 5 season 2 release date. So, if you are also a big fan of this thrilling series then see what decision showrunners has taken for its second installment.
Has HBO Revealed Avenue 5 Season 2 Release Date?
Within few days of the release of the first season, creators amused the fans by announcing the renewal of the series for the second time in February 2020. This is entirely authentic information as Wikipedia itself has confirmed this news. Fans got relaxed after hearing this announcement of showrunners as they were quite tensed because of the drama’s poor performance on the IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes.
HBO mostly proposes a second opportunity to almost every drama and that’s why most of the review experts were already certain that they would definitely get a chance to watch another season of the series. The concept behind the story is pretty much unique and fresh where a ship’s journey consisting of rich people has been shown.
After the official announcement of the Second season’s return initially it was expected that drama would be released yet but just then COVID-19 arrived and spoiled each plan. If we consider factors like pre-production, cast selection, and script building all these will take time close to 7 months. So, according to this season 2 can be released by the end of 2021.
How Will Avenue 5 Season 2 Plot Be?
At the ending of the first season, we get to see the throwing of overweight from the airlock of the ship. But initially, the squad has to discover Matt as he has modified airlock codes after the demise of 7 travelers after their departure from the ship’s airlock. Ultimately, somehow they reach Matt and thereafter he discloses the code to them.
In between this, Rav(Nikka Amuka-Bird) enters the ship and delivers the shuttle. A shuttle is capable of transferring two people to the Earth. However, this shuttle develops a conflict among passengers about who will take it. Judd, Jordan, Doug, Mia, Captain Clark, Iris are the ones who lose their lives on the ship.
The strategy has always remained to throw out the extra load from the rear part of the ship so that its journey time can be reduced to six months. However, Karen chooses to remove the weight from the port side because there are more airlocks against Clark’s opinion. Now, this creates more trouble for them as their travel time increases to 8 years.
So, we have seen how the situation has turned worst for travelers of the ship. They have been surrounded by the body wastes and the corpses of their companion passengers(dead). Hence, in the next season, with the continuous downfall of the ship’s condition, people will become more exhausted and tensed.
Therefore, it will be quite fascinating to see how they will overcome this problem of the ship and reach earth. So, be ready to watch Avenue 5 season 2 as this time its episodes will be crowded with more thrill and twists.
