Is there going to be season 2 of Archive 81, well, that is a good question. Archive 81 Season 1 was just released a couple of weeks ago and there is already a rumor circulating around that there might be a season 2 on the horizon.
Variety wrote, who spoke with showrunner Rebecca Sonnenshine. Spoilers follow about how season 1 ends:
“[Dan is] in the real ’90s, and the clue for that is that it does not have the particulates floating around there. He’s in 1994. And the question we’re asking is, we saw people disappear into The Otherworld in different time periods, right? So what does that mean?
“It means there’s little holes, little poke, poke — little entry and exit points. And that people have gotten kind of mixed up in there trying to exit, and maybe didn’t exit through the right door.”
She also comments on the role both Samuel, currently missing, will play in season 2:
“Samuel is still very much part of the story,” she said. “And I think Season 2 is, where is Samuel? Where is he? And I think that that is a very exciting branch of our story that we definitely know what we’re doing with.” source forbes.com
As of this writing, we do not have any official statement from Netflix about the renewal of this Drama, Horror, Mystery series.
Personally, I would love to see a new season of Archive 81, I like this kind of genre when the show keeps you on your toes most of the time.
The cast of Archive 81 Season 2 should be almost the same with some new characters additions. As for the release date, it should premiere at the end of 2022, that is my prediction.
Here is the cast from Season 1.
