Netflix has pulled the plug on Another Life, giving the series a two-season run on the streamer. Along with this bad news for fans comes worth that there won’t be a third season coming to help close out the story, so the finale of the second season now serves as the series finale. Another Life tar Katee Sackhoff confirmed the news by thanking the fans for all of their support with a post to Twitter. Sackhoff makes it clear she would have preferred to keep going but she’s ready for what’s next.
“I’d like to thank everyone single person who watched & supported Another Life on Netflix,” Sackhoff said. “To our crew & cast thank you for always working so hard & being prepared. I wish we could do more seasons but sadly it’s just not in the cards. See you on the next adventure. Love Niko.”
Sackhoff starred in the series as Niko Breckinridge, an astronaut focused on searching for alien intelligence. In the series, per the logline, Niko “leads a crew on a mission to explore the genesis of an alien artifact. As Niko and her young crew investigate, they face unimaginable danger on what might very well be a one-way mission.”
Created by Aaron Martin, Another Life also starred Justin Chatwin as Erik Wallace, Samuel Anderson as William, A.J. Rivera as Bernie Martinez, Alexander Eling as Javier Almanzar, JayR Tinaco as Zayn Petrossian, Lina Renna as Jana Breckinridge-Wallace, Selma Blair as Harper Glass, Elizabeth Ludlow as Cas Isakovic, Tongayi Chirisa as Richard Ncube, and Dillon Casey as Seth Gage.
Another Life Is Not the First, or Last, Netflix Series to End Prematurely
Netflix is notorious for giving its shows the boot too early. Last month, Gentefied became the first Netflix show cancelation of 2022, ending after a two-season run. This followed Julie and the Phantoms getting axed the previous month after just one season, leaving that show’s fans very unhappy. After a long wait for Cowboy Bebop to arrive last year, that show was also canceled soon after its debut, giving it a one-season run.
On the other hand, Netflix has also been known to save other series from dying an early death. The TV series Manifest was able to find a new life by streaming on Netflix, so when it was axed by NBC, there was a fan movement for Netflix to pick it up. Initially, the streamer passed, but because the fans refused to give up, Netflix ultimately acquiesced and ordered a fifth and final season of that series.
The entire two-season series of Another Life is streaming on Netflix.com.
Dakota Johnson was recently cast as Madame Web, but will she be playing Julia Carpenter or Cassandra Webb?
