On 19th January 2020, Apple confirmed the renewal of Home Before Dark for a second season. It was just two months after the premiering of season 1 on Apple TV+. In support of the confirmation, creator Dana Fox said, “I think we just felt strongly that we wanted to make something that we had never seen before, a sophisticated drama with a young female at its core”. She also added, “We wanted parents to watch first and see if kids can handle it. Parents will decide with their kids. The tone was the most difficult thing to nail.”

The viewers can make an intelligent guess as to when season 2 may release even though the makers did not drop any official announcement or hint. As per sources, the screenplay seems to be in a ready state and some fans are also saying that the production for season 2  has already started. Hence, the best prediction that can be made for the release of season 2 is sometime around fall 2021.

What will Season 2 be all about?

If we continue from season 1 then we’ll see that the season ends with quite a few unanswered questions and cliffhangers. Richie’s body is not found in the van to which Hilde concurs, after her careful investigation that Richie escaped the van while it was drowning. But it is unknown as to where Richie has gone after escaping the incident. Another question that remains is who hired Zeke to kidnap Richie. Based on what sources say and what fans strongly predict, these questions will be answered in season 2 of Home Before Dark.

Another Life Season 2 Release Date and Details

Another Life

Sci-fi space odysseys have made a significant mark in the domain of movies and TV shows. One such show that we are going to talk about today is named Another Life. We will be discussing details regarding Another Life Season 2, its release date, its cast, and its potential plot.

Another Life
Captain Niko Breckenridge

Another life is an American sci-fi drama web series created by Aaron Martin. The show premiered on Netflix on 25th July 2019. The story starts with a Mobius strip-shaped flying object lands on earth and starts growing crystals. Erik Wallace is appointed by the United States Interstellar Command to establish contact with the spaceship. He fails to do so, and as the remote communication idea does not succeed, then the plan is moved forward to establishing contact through physical means. Hence, Erik’s wife, Captain Niko Breckinridge, is appointed for plan B, and the story unfolds. In October 2019, the series was renewed for a second season.

Another Life Season 2 Release Date

Another Life was renewed for season 2 by Netflix on 29th October 2019. The order for renewal was passed just three months after the premiering of season 1. Even though the series is originally Netflix produced, the first season of the series did not fare well before the critics and the audience. Rotten Tomatoes marked the series at 6% only whereas, IMDb has rated the series at 4.9/10. Despite the negative reviews and ratings, the title is here to stay as there’s a high enough chance for it to get a season renewal from Netflix.

There is currently no news regarding any kind of release date for season 2. Netflix usually takes a reasonable amount of time between the release of two seasons of a show. For example, the show Lost in Space had its first season released in April 2019 whereas, its season 2  did not release before December 2019. Similarly, fans have to wait a considerable amount of time to see the second season of Another Life. As it is a sci-fi show, it could additionally take quite a large amount of time to hit the screens because of its VFX development. Hence, the expected release period could be by the end of 2020.

Casting for Another Life Season 2

The cast for Season 2 is as follows,

  • Katee Sackhoff as Niko Breckinridge
  • Justin Chatwin as Erik Wallace
  • Samuel Anderson as William
  • Blu Hunt as August Catawnee
  • A.J Rivera as Bernie Martinez
  • Jake Abel as Sasha Harrison
  • Alex Ozerov as Oliver Sokolov
  • Alexander Eling as Javier Almanzar
  • JayR Tinaco as Zayn Petrossian
  • Lina Renna as Jana-Breckinridge Wallace
  • Selma Blair as Harper Glass
  • Elizabeth Ludlow as Cas Isakovic
  • Tongayi Chirisa as Richard Ncube

What would be the plot for Season 2?

Season 1 of After Life was all about finding the Artifact and discovering where it came from and whether the alien race who mad it is friendly or not. By the end of the season, we get to see that the alien race who made the artifact is named Achaia, and they indicate that they are not a friendly race. The intelligence samples on planet Zakir described their objective as pure destruction. A similar goal is demonstrated by Achaia when they arrive in their ships and blow up Zakir when the characters Niko and Salvare tried to liberate the citizens of the planet from its artifact. Achaia hints their next target as planet Earth but looking at the brute strength that the alien force carries; it would not be easy to protect Earth from these aliens.

Somehow it seems that Achaia’s objective is more than the destruction of planet Earth. Season 1 ends with journalist Harper Glass being mind-controlled by the Achaia’s who convey a message to citizens of Earth via Glass’s voice that they came to earth in peace, and their sole purpose was to make a good relationship with the planet. Achaia’s objective becomes a bit clearer as they wish to vanquish the planet and its living beings and use its resources to their fullest potential. Among all the citizens, Erik did not receive the message. He was last seen walking into the artifact with Jana, hoping that the aliens will save Jana’s life.

The foreseen plot for season 2 might be that Erik comes under the same mind-control as Jasper Glass. To stop that from happening, Erik’s wife Niko intervenes, and thus, what sets up is a conflict where mind-controlled Erik becomes the evil, and Niko becomes the protagonist. The aliens would not like interference and hence would use Erik to kill Niko. The only hope of stopping this conflict lies with Salvare, who must make it back to Earth safely.

Money Heist Season 5: Release Date, Major Spoiler, and Updates

Money Heist Season 5

“Death can be the greatest opportunity of your life.” Sounds familiar, right? Well, these words have been spoken by one of the wisest characters of Money Heist named Berlin. Hello there, TV shows peeps, welcome to Gizmoseries, and today we are going to talk about Money Heist Season 5 release date and updates.

The show currently wrapped up its fourth season with Netflix, consequently ordering the production for its fifth chapter after the overwhelming success and positive responses that the show has garnered worldwide.

Money Heist Official Poster

The show followed a pattern of the storyline in all the seasons, with each season ramping up the action and bloodshed more than its predecessor. Each season ended with a grand heist, but things were a bit different in Season 4 as we saw the plans of the Professor failing, which led to the death of certain key characters/members of the bandit group. This highlighted that the season ended in a cliffhanger and that there’s plenty of room for the plot to expand to a Season 5.

Money Heist Season 5 Release Date

Spanish website formulatv.com has claimed that Netflix has renewed the series for a fifth chapter and that the pre-production has already begun. La Vanguardia, a Spanish newspaper, has quoted director Jesus Colmenar’s statement, “That there is going to be a fifth [part]  can be said”. The series has been produced by the production company, Vancouver Media and it seems pretty clear that production for Chapter 5 would begin after the filming of Sky Rojo, which has also been produced by the media company.

At the moment, there is no concrete date that Netflix has dropped for Money Heist Season 5. However, if we look closely, then we will see that there were nine months between the release of Season 3 and Season 4. If we were to follow the same pattern, then we can expect the release of the upcoming season by the end of 2020.

Money Heist Season 5
Netflix has postponed the production of Money Heist Season 5 due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation.

Although Netflix ordered the production of Season 5 in October 2019, it paused the same in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation occurring worldwide. Due to this pandemic, it seems highly unlikely to expect Season 5 by 2020. To boost the excitement of the fans even further, Spanish site Marca has reported that the title will have a fifth as well as a sixth season. The producers said that the plot is so diverse that the show could go on for seasons with the ending still being unknown.

Money Heist Season 5  Cast

With Nairobi’s death in Season 4 of La Casa De Papel, the gang’s population has dropped further. But the series is also best known for bringing its characters back through flashbacks just like what happened with Berlin, Moscow, and Oslo. Other than that the cast will more or less remain the same. Here is the cast list,

  • Ursula Corbero as Tokyo
  • Alvaro Morte as the Professor
  • Itziar Ituno as Lisbon
  • Pedro Alonso as Berlin
  • Paco Tous as Moscow
  • Alba Flores as Nairobi
  • Miguel Herran as Rio
  • Jaime Lorente as Denver
  • Esther Acebo as Stockholm
  • Enrique Arce as Arturo Roman
  • Maria Pedraza as Alison Parker
  • Darko Peric as Helsinki
  • Kiti Manver as Marivi Fuentes
  • Hovik Keuchkerian as Bogota
  • Rodrigo de la Serna as Palermo
  • Najwa Nimri as Alicia Sierra
  • Luka Peros as Marseille
  • Belen Cuesta as Julia
  • Fernando Cayo as Colonel Luis Tamayo

Money Heist Season 5 Expected Plot

Similar to the previous seasons of La Casa De Papel, it is quite obvious that in the upcoming season too, the Professor will be at the helm of the heist operations and the gang executing the armed robberies based on his instructions.

The cliffhangers from Season 4 can now be addressed in detail in the upcoming season. The Professor gets cornered by Inspector Alicia Sierra while Lisbon remains inside the bank with the others, and they have no way to escape. The only gullible way for escape seems to be melting the gold at high speed while Sergio searches for a way to outsmart Sierra.

Money Heist Season 5
Season 4 Episode 15

At the end of Season 4 credits, the resistance song “Bella Ciao” could be heard singing. It has been pointed out by Oprah Magazine that Najwa Nimri (Inspector Alicia Sierra) is the actress who is singing the popular tune right after the credits. Fans are hyping and anticipating her joining the gang as a new member.

Whereas, some fans are also suggesting that she could be Tatiana i.e, Berlin’s wife who is played by Diana Gomez. And the most surprising fact in this one is that they both look alike. Either way, if it goes the way of the fans, i.e, Sierra joining the cause, then it could ramp up the entire dynamics of the show.

The future for Tokyo, Rio, Arturito, Berlin, etc. seems bleak and unknown at the moment as the producers claim that the scriptwriters are trying out different possibilities to shape their characters based on the plot. The possibilities are endless.

Money Heist Overall Reception

Attack On Titans Season 4: Release Date, Future and Updates

Attack On Titans

In this article, we will be talking about Attack On Titans Season 4 release date and other details. Shingeki no Kyojin is a Japanese dark fantasy anime adapted from its manga version. The manga version has been created by Hajime Isayama. The anime is set in a world where human beings live in urban areas that are surrounded by gigantic walls across the city peripheries to guard the cities against Titans. Titans are enormous humanoids who devour on humans without any reason.

The story is all about the adventures of Eren Yeager and his friends, whose hometown is destroyed when a colossal Titan breaches the city walls and infiltrates the city. This very event changes their lives, and Eren and his friends join the Scout Regiment –  an elite group of soldiers who fight Titans – vowing revenge upon the Titans. This post might contain spoilers for those who have not seen this anime. If you do not like spoilers, then this post is not for you. Please note that we did not create the spoilers nor leak them.

Attack On Titans Season 4 Release Date

The anime title has achieved some serious success over the release of its past three seasons and with such an interesting and enthralling storyline arc, fans eagerly await the release of its fourth season. Well, it seems the wait is finally over as the most anticipated season is about to hit the screens this year itself.

 

Attack on Titans Season 4 is expected to release in October 2020. It is really hard to control your eagerness to know more and see more after such a mind-boggling ending to Season 3 of Shingeki no Kyojin. But as fans are predicting this season is going to be the most promising season of the series with the exciting and denser part of the manga still left to be delivered before the viewers.

The upcoming season is going to be the last season of the anime series, and it would have 24 episodes altogether. The manga, however, would continue with the story, but the primary fact being that how much justice will the current season do to the entire anime as well as the manga version.

What is the plot for Season 4?

The most recent trailer is out, and in my opinion, the visuals look stunning. For rigorous manga readers, the trailer will blow their minds. The trailer reveals the fight for becoming the next armored Titan. Here’s the link to the trailer.

The show will be available online on Netflix, Funimation, AnimeLab, Hulu, Yamato Animation, etc.

A fan theory suggests that this time the plot will be all about everything going against Eren and that Eren is going crazy over his dark past that still haunts him. He and his friends, Mikasa, Arlert, Levi, and Armin, will go overseas to uncover the truths behind the history of humans and Titans, based on his father’s diaries that he discovered in the previous season. The question is, will Eren be able to avenge his past and kill all the Titans in the showdown, or will he become a part of his dream?
