Into the Night is getting a second season on Netflix. The series is known as the first Belgian Netflix Original and certainly didn’t do badly since its release on the streaming service. The thriller follows a group of people aboard a flight. They turn out to be one of the few survivors as the sun kills everyone in its path. Behind the scenes, a second season is now hard at work. In this article, you can read everything we already know about Into the Night season 2.
Into the Night is inspired by the Polish sci-fi book The Old Axolotl by Jacek Dukaj. It turns out there is enough material left to make a second season as well. In the first season we were already introduced to the various survivors. At the end of the season the group ended up in a bunker where they can escape from the deadly radiation.
Once the two groups end up in the bunker, they are soon told that there would be a solution to the problem with the sun. However, it is missing an important character who has been left outside. Therefore, it remains to be seen whether the group will be allowed to stay in the bunker In season 2, we undoubtedly seem to be going to see the solution to the problem.

The creator of Into the Night said at the time, “We are speechless by the worldwide response to Into the Night and I am thrilled by the fact that we will be doing a second season.”
