It's been more than two years since Netflix first released its sci-fi drama starring Battlestar Galactica's Katee Sackhoff but the wait is finally over and we have all the details on how you can watch new episodes from season 2 of Another Life online.
In the relatively near future at a time when humanity has finally developed spaceships that can travel faster than light, an unidentified flying object in the shape of a Möbius strip lands on Earth. When a crystalline tower begins to grow from the alien spaceship, United States Interstellar Command scientist Erik Wallace (Justin Chatwin) attempts to communicate with it and ends up identifying a signal from the structure sent to the star Pi Canis Majoris.
After it's decided that the source of the signal needs to be investigated further, Wallace's wife astronaut Niko Breckinridge (Katee Sackhoff) replaces Ian Yerxa as the captain of the faster than light ship the Salvare. She is tasked with leading a crew to determine the origin of the artifact and establishing first contact with the species who sent it.
First released in October of 2019, Another Life was originally scheduled to begin shooting its second season in March of last year. However, like many shows last year, filming was delayed as a result of the pandemic. Season 2 of Another Life went into production in August of 2020 but unfortunately it was postponed again. Production wrapped up in December of last year and now fans of the show will finally get to see Niko and her crew try to return to Earth after witnessing the extraterrestrial race the Achaia wipe out an entire planet.
Niko and the others aboard the Salvare are concerned that Earth might suffer a similar fate while Erik and their daughter Jana have entered the alien ship in an effort to cure her advanced leukemia triggered by a blast of sound from the crystalline tower.
Whether you've been eagerly awaiting the show's second season or enjoyed seeing Sackhoff play the role of Starbuck on Battlestar Galactica, we have all the details on how you can watch season 2 of Another Life from anywhere in the world.
