One of the pioneering post-apocalyptic shows from Russia, ‘To the Lake’ aka ‘Epidemiya,’ is the TV adaptation of the bestselling book, ‘Vongozero,’ penned by Yana Vagner and translated into eleven languages. Upon its premiere in Russia in 2019, the show received favorable reviews. As expected, it was then picked up by Netflix to air for the global audience. If you have binged on all of its episodes already, you would know that it is a worthy watch. Along with compelling performances and a thrilling plot, season 1 lends a panoramic view of picturesque Russia. So, are you wondering if there is a scope for ‘To the Lake’ to spawn another season? Let’s find out.
To The Lake Season 2 Release Date:
‘To the Lake’ season 1 premiered on October 7, 2020, on Netflix. It consisted of eight episodes. Now, with regards to a second season, here is what we know. The show’s source material, the novel titled ‘Vongozero,’ is covered in all its entirety in the first season itself. Moreover, several sources have branded the sci-fi thriller as a mini-series. Season 1 was released in Russia way back in November 2019, and until now, there is no word on a renewal.
Considering the above factors, a second outing seems unlikely. In all probability, ‘To the Lake’ season 2 stands canceled. However, following its international premiere, if season 1 opens to a positive response, the creators might give a shot at carrying the story forward. In the unlikely scenario that this happens, we will update this section.
