More pie. More answers. Netflix has renewed The Society TV show for a second season. The YA series, which just debuted on May 10th, will return for season two in 2020, with production beginning later in 2019. Below, check out the season two renewal announcement video featuring The Society cast.
A Netflix mystery drama from Christopher Keyser, The Society stars Rachel Keller, Kathryn Newton, Alex Fitzalan, Kristine Froseth, Jacques Colimon, Sean Berdy, Toby Wallace, Gideon Adlon, Olivia DeJonge, Alex MacNicoll, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Jose Julian, Salena Qureshi, Jack Mulhern, and Grace Victoria Cox. This modern retelling of Lord of the Flies centers on students from a wealthy New England enclave, who return home from a scrubbed camping trip to find everyone they left behind has vanished.
The Society Renewed for Season Two on Netflix
Here’s more from The Hollywood Reporter:
While Netflix, like other streamers, does not release viewership data, sources tell THR that the series was a strong performer internationally, which helped secure a second season after a soft U.S. performance. (Netflix’s YA favorite 13 Reasons Why also performs well internationally.)
“[S]eason [one] deals a lot with men versus women, and it deals only briefly with race, but I think you can expect that conversation about class and race to keep coming up,” Keyser told THR about his larger focus for The Society. “All these things need to be re-litigated in a world in which there are no givens. We hope, over time, and if we’re lucky enough to get a season two, to explore all the social contract questions that we take for granted.”
Looks like it is time for that deep dive.
