Get ready for a little more chaos. Netflix has renewed its new teen drama “The Society” for a second season, the streaming service said Tuesday.
Creator Chris Keyser will return as showrunner for the second season of the Kathryn Newton-led series, and continue to executive produce alongside Marc Webb. Production on Season 2 will begin later this year, with the new episodes set to launch some time in 2020.
“The Society,” which dropped its 10-episode Season 1 on the streaming service May 10, follows a group of teenagers who are mysteriously transported to a facsimile of their wealthy New England town, left without any trace of their parents. As they struggle to figure out what has happened to them and how to get home, they must establish order and form alliances if they want to survive. The series is a modern take on “Lord of the Flies.”
Along with Newton (“Big Little Lies”) the cast includes Sean Berdy, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Jacques Colimon, Olivia DeJonge and Alex Fitzalan, with Grace Victoria Cox poised to have a greater role when season two returns.
Watch “The Society” stars announce the show’s Season 2 renewal in the video above, which was posted to Netflix’s social channels Tuesday morning.
