‘Another Life’ Season 2 to hit Netflix next fall 2021

Another Life‘s second season (and yes, there was a first one) will blast off this fall, Netflix announced on Tuesday, while also sharing a sneak peek at the Katee Sackhoff-led sci-fi drama.

Another Life is a Netflix Original sci-fi series created by Aaron Martin. The series stars Battlestar Galactica hero Katie Sackhoff and Hellboy star Selma Blair. Like many of Netflix’s latest Originals, Another Life was shot in 4K, showcasing the tech Netflix has available to make the best-looking shows.

Another Life‘s freshman mission followed astronaut Niko Breckinridge (played by Sackhoff) as she led a crew on a mission to explore the genesis of an alien artifact. As Niko and her young crew investigated, they faced unimaginable danger on what might very well be a one-way mission.

In the 10-episode first season, “When a mysterious alien Artifact lands on Earth, Commander Niko Breckinridge (Katee Sackhoff) has to lead humanity’s first interstellar mission to its planet of origin, while her husband (Justin Chatwin) tries to make the first contact with the artifact back on earth. Another Life explores the miracle of life, how precious life is in a universe mostly empty of it, and the lengths we will go to protect the ones we love.”

Aaron Martin is the creator and showrunner of “Another Life.” Noreen Halpern executive produces, with Hellfire Entertainment (“Alias Grace”) producing.

Netflix also announced on Tuesday that its lonnnnng-gestating, John Cho-led adaptation of the Cowboy Bebop anime will also premiere this fall. Described as the jazz-inspired, genre-bending story of Spike Spiegel (played by Cho), Jet Black (Luke Cage‘s Mustafa Shakir), Faye Valentine (The Detour‘s Daniella Pineda), and Radical Ed, the series follows a ragtag crew of bounty hunters as they hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals.

The cast, some of whom are featured in the teaser below, also includes Geoff Stults, Tamara Tunie, Mason Alexander Park, Rachel House, Ann Truong, and Hoa Xuande.
