Science fiction is all about the future envisioned in the present. With Sci-fi, there are numerous possibilities and a lot of paths to head towards. Andrew Hinderaker’s ‘Away,’ starring Hilary Swank, travels through one such lane.
‘Away’ is a science-fiction drama series that attends the first voyage to ‘the Red Planet’ with a crew on board, the Mars Joint Initiative. It spans into an International team, a Chinese chemist (Lu Wang), a Russian Cosmonaut (Misha Popov), an Indian medical officer (Ram Arya), a British botanist (Kwesi Weisberg-Abban), commanded by an American Astronaut (Emma Green).
How did Away Season 1 sum up?
The first season of the series aired on September 4, 2020. It paced through the details of the three-year mission, the crisis situations, and distrust that arose with them. In the season finale, the spaceship, Atlas lands on Mars. With a new beginning on Mars, families allow some developments too.
Would there be a second season for Away?
There is no confirmation as of right now, but there are matters to be explored. The mission is three years long, and towards the end of Season 1, only the landing took place. The real concern is how they will lead their life on Mars. All of these signs point in one direction that is a high probability of Season 2 for the series.
Build-up for Away 2
The span of space mission begins with its landing. It is all about how the crew manages to cope up with the conditions of Mars and raise a living standard. Either the distrust among members will grow, or they will join hands to live through it. Romantic tensions are building on both the planets as Melissa confesses her feelings for Matt, and Ram opens up to Emma. These tensions might take some turns.
When would the Second Season be on screens?
It might be a long time before season 2 reaches the screen as the pandemic keeps on stretching, and it is not simple enough to design and develop elements for a Sci-fi series. It might take a year or so before the series is renewed for another season.
