Netflix is taking over the entertainment world, and we love to see it! In August 2020, the streaming giant dropped ‘Biohackers,’ that follows an ambitious university student as she navigates the complicated world of bio-hacking and genetic enhancements, while also investigating the mysterious passing of her brother. Upon its release, the show managed to satiate the appetite of the science fiction fans, and also received a mixed to positive response from the critics.
It was lauded for the well-rounded characters, fast pace, suspenseful atmosphere, thrilling twists, and a fascinating premise that throws light on the thought-provoking elements involved in genetic-engineering and the consequences when it falls in wrong hands. Naturally, fans are wondering: Will there be a ‘Biohackers’ season 2? Let’s find out!
Biohackers Season 2 Release Date
‘Biohackers’ season 1 premiered in its entirety on August 20, 2020, on Netflix. It consists of six episodes with a runtime of 40-47 minutes each.
But what about season 2? You may ask. Well, creator Christian Ditter or the streaming giant is yet to give a renewal/cancellation update to the fans. However, the inconclusive ending of the first season leaves the fate of many characters up in the air, indicating that there’s enough room for a potential second season. Plus, the techno–thriller series has received a decent response from the viewers, increasing the chances of it getting renewed by the network. If and when that happens, we expect ‘Biohackers’ season 2 to release sometime in 2022, on Netflix.
Biohackers Season 2 Cast: Who is in it?
The series is led by Luna Wedler, who plays the curious and ambitious student, Mia Akerlund. Joining her as her love interest and batch-mate Jasper is Adrian Julius Tillmann. Acclaimed actor Jessica Schwarz appears as the mysterious Professor Tanja Lorenz, while Benno Fürmann essays the character of Andreas Winter. Thomas Prenn plays the role of Niklas.
The cast also comprises Thomas Prenn as Niklas, Zeynep Bozbay as Petra Eller, Caro Cult as Lotta, Eleonore Daniel as Heike, Sebastian Jakob Doppelbauer as Ole, and Jing Xiang as Chen-Lu, among others. Except for a few, almost all the main cast members might reprise their respective roles in the second season. Season 2 can also feature some new additions to the cast.
Biohackers Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?
In the intense finale of the first season, Mia seeks the help of her friends to save the lives of the passengers in time. Jasper discovers that Professor Lorenz didn’t produce the antibodies and never really cared about saving lives. When he confronts her, she lies to the authorities and accuses Jasper of being responsible for the attack. Mia blames Lorenz for her brother’s death and takes the antibodies to save the patients.
Jasper flees Lorenz’s residence and upon boarding a flight, he texts Mia that she was right all along about Lorenz. Along with the message, he attaches the evidence that proves Lorenz’s guilt. When Mia finally meets Andreas Winter and hands him the device that contains the date of the Homo Deus experiment, Mia is kidnapped by Andreas’ men, indicating that he isn’t as innocent as he appears to be.
In season 2, we can expect Mia to try and break free from Andreas’ clutches. Lorenz, who is also kidnapped by Andreas, along with Mia, might undergo a change of heart and help Mia in unmasking Andreas and revealing his true motives to the world. We might also learn more about the mystery behind Mia’s past. It might also answer the burning question: Is Mia, really Emma Engels? The second season might reunite Mia and Jasper, and together, the two would bring down Andreas Winter and his empire of lies and deceit.
