SYFY has given the green light to The Ark Season 2. The network’s newest original hit series reached 6.5 million viewers across all platforms in season one.
The season finale will air Wednesday, April 19 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on SYFY. All episodes are available for streaming on Peacock.
“We couldn’t be more excited to get back into space with the crew of the Ark,” said co-showrunners/executive producers Dean Devlin and Jonathan Glassner about The Ark Season 2.
“SYFY continues to be an amazing partner and home for this series,” they added.
“The success of The Ark is just another example of delivering on a promise to provide a wide spectrum of quality shows across our linear, cable and streaming portfolios,” said Lisa Katz, President Scripted Programming at NBCUniversal and Streaming.
“Heading into space with Dean and Jonathan has truly been a trip worth taking and we’re tremendously excited about how this otherworldly adventure will continues in season two.”
Created by Dean Devlin, The Ark takes place 100 years in the future when planetary colonization missions have begun as a necessity to help secure the survival of the human race.
The first of these missions on a spacecraft known as Ark One encounters a catastrophic event causing massive destruction and loss of life.
With more than a year left to go before reaching their target planet, a lack of life-sustaining supplies and loss of leadership, the remaining crew must become the best versions of themselves to stay on course and survive.
The season one cast includes Christie Burke, Richard Fleeshman, Reece Ritchie, Stacey Read and Ryan Adams.
Dean Devlin (Independence Day, Stargate) and Jonathan Glassner (Stargate SG-1) are co-showrunners and executive producers alongside Marc Roskin and Rachel Olschan-Wilson of Electric Entertainment.
Jonathan English of Balkanic Media and Steve Lee serve as producers for the first season.
