It’s been over two years since the first season of HBO’s Avenue 5 debuted on the network. The series that combines the genre, created by Armando Iannucci, has received a lot of acclaim and fans for its first season. However, viewers are still waiting for the show’s return with Avenue 5 Season 2. So let’s discuss the fate of the show-
Does HBO have Greenlit Avenue 5 Season 2?
The first season of Avenue 5 premiered on HBO on January 19, 2020 and came to an end on March 15, 2020. However, thanks to the overwhelming response to the first season, the network has renewed the series for a second installment in February. 2020.
HBO’s EVP Amy Gravitt, announcing the extension, said: “We have loved every minute of the inaugural journey of Avenue 5. Armando Iannucci and his team are masters of smart and sharp comedy, and the ensemble cast, brilliantly led by Hugh Laurie , is unparalleled. We can’t wait to see what our hapless heroes have in store for season two.” But even after a two-year extension, we don’t have a confirmed release date for Avenue 5 Season 2.
What could happen in Avenue 5 Season 2?
The show’s exciting first season ended with a heart-pounding conclusion. In the finale of the first season, the crew found a way to shorten their journey by as much as six months. They decided to dump extra weight from the ship. However, things took an unexpected turn. Due to some confusion, the weight was pushed out the wrong side of the ship. Consequently, instead of shortening, their travel time was extended to eight years, which baffled the crew. On the other hand, Iris was accidentally sent back to Earth.
When Avenue 5 Season 2 arrives, the story will move forward after the Season One finale. In the second season, one of two things will happen. Either the crew will overcome the chaos, or they will come together and seize the opportunity and devise an escape plan. But whatever happens, we can expect the season to be hilarious.
On the other hand, launching Iris back to Earth is a bigger problem. It can help the crew in an unimaginable way, even if it seems unlikely. The spacecraft lies deep in a large hole in space and viewers expect to get more access to it in the future, presumably in a next season!
The starring cast of the SciFi comedy series includes Hugh Laurie as Ryan Clark, Captain of Avenue 5. and Josh Gad as Herman Judd. He is a brutal billionaire and the owner of the spaceship. The show also stars Zach Woods as Matt Spencer, Rebecca Front as Karen Kelly, and Suzy Nakamura as Iris Kimura.
On the other hand, the show’s cast also includes Lenora Crichlow as Billie McEvoy, Nikki Amuka-Bird as Mulcair, and Ethan Phillips as Spike Martin. If the series is relaunched for Avenue 5 Season 2, we can most likely expect the return of most of the prominent cast members. At the same time, the second season can also introduce us to some new characters.
