With podcasts mostly being informative or fun, who expects them to be scary? Well, one of such podcasts is Archive 81 which has been haunting its listeners for the past few years. Since Rebecca Sonnenshine thought that the podcast wasn’t enough. She went ahead and created a Netflix adaptation to keep its viewers up all night. With the horrifying series which created such hype, the viewers are expecting a season 2 to come out soon. But is the horror podcast going to get its season 2? Or are they just speculating for it to be dropped?
Facts or Speculations?
No one expected the science-fiction series to have such a huge and outstanding response when it was dropped early this January 14thon Netflix. The fans had speculated for the second season to be out in March, but that’s really not going to happen. As we saw from other previous hit shows it usually takes them a year to drop out after Netflix confirms their renewal with them.
As of now, there is no news of Netflix confirming their renewal with the show for a second season. It’s totally nothing to be concerned about as the show has already had such a good response in terms of views. So, we can confirm that somewhere in the near future there will be a renewal of the contract. We could expect to see the new season early next year.
What Will Season 2 Be About?
If a season 2 does come out, we are surely going to see a role reversal. Melody has come to the present day and Dan has been sent back years. With the horrific demon still lurking, they now also have to worry about Samuel who is still somewhere close. Since Samuel is a part of the story, there is also a very huge chance that Davenport is going to make its appearance and is going to be a major part of the 2nd season.
