In 2016, it’s unclear if life exists on Mars. By 2037, Nat Geo will discover love on the red planet.

The cable channel’s ambitious scripted/documentary hybrid series “Mars” fast-forwards four years tonight. The Daedalus crew has landed and established its first settlement, Olympus Town, on our neighboring rock. The shift in control there is intense, and emotions run high.

In the above sneak peek clip, which is exclusive to TheWrap, geochemist Javier is reeling from a nearly fatal mistake he made. Biochemist Amelie wants him to rest. Naturally, this turns into a total smooch-fest.

Watch the video above.

The “Mars” premiere eclipsed 15.5 million total viewers around the world. In the U.S., the series debut wrangled 1 million viewers.

“Mars” airs Mondays at 9/8c on Nat Geo.
