Created and directed by Choi Hang-yong, the eight-episode series “The Silent Sea” is a South Korean sci-fi thriller mystery streaming TV series developed for Netflix that was launched on December 24, 2021. The series is based on “The Sea of Tranquility” by Choi Hang-yong. It features Bae Doona, Gong Yoo, Lee Joon, Kim Sun-young, and Lee Moo-Saeng.
The story revolves around a group of people sent on a mission to obtain samples from a lunar investigation base. Primarily science fiction, it also incorporates genres like thriller and mystery.
When it debuted, it received generally favorable responses from the audience for its well-crafted plot, visual effects, and performances by the actors. Now that the first season has ended many fans are curious to know if there’ll be another season of this wonderful series.
Let’s find out in details below regarding a second season of The Silent Sea.
The Silent Sea Season 2 Release Date: When Is It?
As of now, Netflix hasn’t renewed the series for a second season instalment but given the huge success, it’s plausible that the story will continue further.
So let’s assume that Netflix renews the series in the next few months but it would still take about six months or more to film then comes the post-production work. This means that we won’t get to see the new episodes until sometime in 2023.
The Cast of The Silent Sea Season 2: Who Will Return?
When the official cast for The Silent Sea was first announced, fans were delighted to see well known Korean actors like Bae Doona and the ever-charming Going Yoo and Heo Sung-tae (Squid Game). But sadly, not all of these characters will be back for the second season.
We witnessed that most of the characters died in the first season itself and there were only three survivors by the end of the series. The survivors are Doctor Song Ji-an (Bae Doona), Doctor Hong Ga-young (Kim Sun-young), and Luna 073 (Kim Si-a). The surviving characters likely will return and reprise their roles once again. In addition to that, there will be new characters introduced in the possible upcoming season.
The Silent Sea Season 2 Plot: Expectations
In the final moments of the first season, the lunar water entirely took control over the moon, with only Dr. Song, Dr. Hong, and Luna who made it to the lunar surface to be rescued by the rescue crew. Luna could very much be the key to preserving humanity from the scarcity of water afflicting the barren planet, however, this indicates that her life could be at great risk.
The ending of the first season does leave the door open for a sequel, but not necessarily as the ending was already satisfying. However, it’s anyone’s guess. So we’ll leave this up to your imagination. Nevertheless, if a sequel happens, it’s going to be another wild ride and we know that it’ll be more intense than the first season.
What Can I Watch The Silent Sea?
All episodes of The Silent Sea are available for streaming on Netflix. It’s also likely if Season 2 of The Silent Sea is greenlit, it will land on Netflix.
