After outrunning the sun in season 1, the survivors must now find a way to fix the problem.
Netflix's first Belgian original series, Into The Night, was a big success. It landed on the platforms' top 10 and attracted the attention of the thrill-seeking audience.
The dystopian thriller series follows a group of survivors on board a plane as they desperately travel west to avoid the sun.
Season one ended with a new glimmer of hope for the survivors of the impending apocalypse.
Here's what's next for Into The Night.
Its time for that big hurray! Into The Night has been officially renewed for season 2!
The renewal of the Belgian series was announced on July 1, 2020.
“We’ve been thrilled by the global response to Into the Night, and I’m excited to share that we’ll be doing a second season,” creator said via Vital Thrills.
The cast announced the renewal in a short teaser as well.
This didn't come as a surprise for the fans of the Belgian series. Its overarching plot hooked the audience right until the last episode. Into The Night was also well received by critics with an 88% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
The fact that the series made it to Netflix's Top 10 served as a major sign for the show to secure a renewal.
There is no official release date for season 2 yet.
Into The Night premiered on Netflix on May 1, 2020. It's uncertain if they will be able to release the same time next year. If they will be able to start filming before the year ends, then there's a good chance we'll see season 2 by the end of 2021 or early 2022.
For now, all we can do is remain patient, knowing that season 2 will be worth the wait.
Into The Night is inspired by the Polish science fiction novel The Old Axolotl by Jacek Dukaj.
There is still plenty of source material left from the novel for season 2 to cover.
Season one introduced us to the different survivors aboard a commercial flight as they try to race against time and avoid impending doom brought by the sunlight.
Towards the end of the first season, the survivors found their way to the bunker, where they can seek refuge from the sun's deadly rays.
After the two groups of remaining survivors successfully entered the bunker, they were greeted by a piece of good news.
The commanding officer tells Sylvie that there's a way to solve the problem with the sun.
We're expecting season 2 to pick up on this, after doing everything to avoid the sunlight in season 1, its time for the survivors to face the main problem in season 2.
Nothing has been confirmed yet, but we're likely to see major cast reprise their roles for season 2.
This includes Pauline Etienne as Sylvie Bridgette Dubois, alongside Jan Bijvoet as Richard "Rik" Mertens, and Mehmet Kurtulus as Ayaz Kobanbay among others.
We've also seen a couple of deaths in season 1, including Terenzio (Stefano Cassetti ), who succumbed to the deadly rays of the sun. It's unlikely for his character to return.
Netflix is yet to drop the official trailer for Into The Night Season 2. For now, we'll leave you with season 1's trailer. Let's take a look back at some of the most intense scenes in the Belgian sci-fi series.
