The Silent Sea Season 2: Release Date: Cast, Plot and Everything You Need to Know on Netflix

We're thirsty for fresh episodes of The Silent Sea now that the moondust has settled, exactly like the people dying of dehydration in this other sci-fi future.

Netflix's latest Korean sci-fi series may not have been as successful as Squid Game or even Hellbound, but there is still a need for more episodes. Over the holidays, the series, penned by scriptwriter Park Eun-Kyo, delighted and frightened us in equal measure, and there's enough for at least one more season that continues the tale.

So put on your spacesuit and join us as we go to the farthest reaches of the internet to learn everything there is to know about season two of The Silent Sea.

When will the second season of The Silent Sea air?

Netflix hasn't confirmed the show's future in any direction, but if season two is approved, we won't see new episodes until early 2023 at the earliest. To be honest, that's probably a generous estimate, given The Silent Sea necessitates more post-production effects work than the normal episode.

Who's in the cast of The Silent Sea season 2?

When the cast for The Silent Sea was initially unveiled, fans were overjoyed to see familiar Korean faces like Bae Doona from Sense8 and Heo Sung-Tae and Gong Yoo from Squid Game in the mix. However, it is unlikely that all of them will return for season two.

After all, by the time of the finale, the great majority of the characters had died. In reality, as the credits rolled, only three characters remained: Doctor Song (Bae Doona), Doctor Hong (Kim Sun-young), and Luna (Kim Si-A).

Even Captain Han made a noble sacrifice, so Gong Yoo, the great actor, is unlikely to return unless flashbacks let him sneak in for a cameo. This implies that Season 2 will mostly include an entirely new cast to continue the plot beyond Season 1.

What will happen in season 2 of The Silent Sea?

The Silent Sea will centre on the remaining two survivors and their voyage back to Earth with Luna unless a time leap occurs. Doctor Song and Doctor Hong may wind themselves on the run, or at least in hiding, as political forces seek Luna out for their advantage, given how unusual their little charge is, not to mention what her very presence signifies to the scientific community.

The idea of this programme makes a powerful statement about the environmental difficulties that our world is now facing, and this will continue to be a major theme in future seasons of The Silent Sea.

If season two is made, we expect the creatives to try to integrate some of the audience comments from season one. Following the debut, Gong Yoo spoke with Sports Chosun (via Soompi) on the show's mixed reception:

“I knew when I got the screenplay and started working on the drama that some people would love it and others would detest it when I got it. I anticipated the division to be much more dramatic because it's in the sci-fi genre. Whether it's scientific or historical research, I believe the drama may be tackled from a variety of viewpoints.”

“Of course, there were portions that were lacking,” he said, “and I am aware of the tiny number of negative opinions.” But I believe we made the best decisions we could under the constraints of reality and class.”

But it's not all doom and gloom. Gong Yoo continued, when asked about the show's influence, by saying:

“I believe we have paved the way for future growth. This, I believe, is a significant first step for the Korean space sci-fi genre. Personally, there are aspects of it that I like, and I believe it's a great beginning step. Many people watch from various views, which I think contributes to the drama's increased appeal, so I'm glad for it.”
