The Ark Season 2: Syfy has renewed its science fiction mystery series, The Ark, for a second season, ahead of the first season’s finale on April 19. Created by Dean Devlin and Jonathan Glassner.
“The Ark” is a science fiction mystery series that is set 100 years in the future, where thousands of people inside a colony ship called Ark One head on a mission to start a new life on another planet. However, their planetary colonization plan is disrupted when a tragic occurrence starts to destroy some parts of the ship, killing most of the people inside. With only more than a year left before they reach their destination planet, the remaining crew must learn to cope immediately in order for them to stay alive.
The first season of The Ark has garnered an estimated 6.5 million viewers across multiple platforms, including Peacock, and is among the top-rated series for Syfy. The show has explored themes beyond disaster, including loss and how people respond to uncertainty, especially when the remaining crew is unsure if there is life on the planet they are heading to.
Co-showrunners and executive producers, Devlin and Glassner, express excitement in returning for another season, while Syfy President of Scripted Programming, Lisa Katz, highlights the show’s success as an example of the network’s commitment to providing a wide range of quality shows.
The show’s first season cast includes Christie Burke, Richard Fleeshman, Reece Ritchie, Stacey Read, and Ryan Adams, with executive producers from Electric Entertainment and Balkanic Media, Marc Roskin, Rachel Olschan-Wilson, and Jonathan English, alongside Steve Lee serving as producers for the first season. Viewers can catch all the episodes of The Ark’s first season on Peacock for streaming.
