‘Another Life’ Renewed by Netflix for Season 2

Series stars ”Battlestar Galactica“ alum Katee Sackhoff

Netflix has renewed Katee Sackhoff-starrer “Another Life” for Season 2.

“I have the most exciting news! Another Life is coming back for Season 2 on Netflix! Can’t wait to see you all back in space,” Sackhoff wrote on her Twitter account Tuesday.

Sackhoff stars as astronaut Niko Breckinridge, who leads a mission to explore the genesis of an alien artifact. Justin Chatwin co-stars as Niko’s scientist husband, with Samuel Anderson and Elizabeth Faith Ludlow also starring.

Production on Season 2 will begin next year in Vancouver.

“Another Life” is produced by Halfire Entertainment (“Alias Grace”). Aaron Martin is the creator and showrunner for the series, which is also executive produced by Noreen Halpern.

Netflix renewed “Another Life” as the company is set to face stiff competition in the streaming space. Four major companies are launching their own services in the next six months. Last week, Netflix’s chief creative officer Ted Sarandos said he was amazed they haven’t faced this kind of competition sooner.

“I was surprised it took everyone this long,” Sarandos told Katie Couric during the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit in Beverly Hills. “This is why we made ‘House of Cards’ 7 years ago. I said, ‘Someday, these guys are not going to sell us their programming, we better get good at it.'”

Apple is launching Apple TV+ on Nov. 1, which will feature the debut of heavily-anticipated series like “The Morning Show.” The service will cost $4.99 a month and is free for a year for anyone who buys a new iPhone, Mac or iPad. Meanwhile, Disney will launch Disney+ 11 days later, for $6.99 a month, which will feature both licensed and new programming from Marvel Studios, Pixar, Nat Geo and LucasFilm.
