Netflix Renews Katee Sackhoff Sci-fi ‘Another Life’ For Season 2
Netflix has handed a Season 2 renewal to the Katee Sackhoff-led space sci-fi drama ‘Another Life‘ the streaming service has announced.
The series follows Commander Niko Breckinridge (Katee Sackhoff – ‘Battlestar Galactica’) on humanity’s first interstellar mission to the origin planet of a mysterious alien artefact that has landed on Earth. Whilst Niko flies toward the unknown, her husband Erik tries to make first contact with the artefact back on earth. Another Life explores the miracle of life, how precious life is in a universe mostly empty of it, and the lengths we will go to protect the ones we love.
Season 1 starred Selma Blair (‘American Crime Story’, ‘Cruel Intentions’) as 21st-century media influencer Harper Glass, who uses journalism, social media and keen intelligence in an attempt to break one of the biggest stories in human history; ‘Teen Wolf’ & ‘Supergirl’ star Tyler Hoechlin as Ian Yerxa, the former commander of The Salvare space explorations ship, who loses the post to Niko; Samuel Anderson (‘Trollied’, ‘Doctor Who’), who takes the role of William, a holographic interface of a sentient A.I. Neither a futuristic Tin Man, nor a robot who pines to be human, William is a new form of life with the knowledge of all humanity at his disposal; Justin Chatwin (‘Shameless US’, ‘Orphan Black’) stars as Erik Wallace, part of the United States Interstellar Command, dedicated to finding intelligent life out in the universe and husband of Commander Niko Breckenridge; And Elizabeth Faith Ludlow (‘Satisfaction’, ‘The Walking Dead’) stars as Cas Isakovic, Niko’s second-in-command and staunchest ally, filled with courage and moral conviction.
‘Another Life‘ comes from creator/showrunner Aaron Martin (‘Slasher’, ‘Saving Hope’, ‘Killjoys’) and producer Noreen Halpern (‘Alias Grace’) through her Halfire Entertainment shingle, both of whom are executive producing. Prolific television director Omar Madha directed the first two episodes of the 10-episode series. Madha’s previous work includes ‘The 100’, ‘Scorpion’, ‘Grimm’, and ’24: Live Another Day’.
