Will There Be a 'Archive 81' Season 2? Here's What We Know So Far & What to Expect!


Archive 81 is one of Netflix‘s big hits this month!

The eight episode series concluded with a twist of a finale that allowed room for a second season, and now, showrunner Rebecca Sonnenshine is opening up about the possibilities in an interview with Variety.

In the finale, Dan Turner (Mamoudou Athie) crossed into The Otherworld controlled by the demon/god Kaelego to rescue Melody Pendras (Dina Shihabi). And while coming out, Dan was shoved back into the timeline in 1994 New York City, while Melody was taken by cult leader Samuel (Evan Jonigkeit) through the present-day door.

“I can tell you that he is in the ’90s. He’s in the real ’90s, and the clue for that is that it does not have the particulates floating around there. He’s in 1994. And the question we’re asking is, we saw people disappear into The Otherworld in different time periods, right? So what does that mean?” the showrunner said.

“It means there’s little holes, little poke, poke — little entry and exit points. And that people have gotten kind of mixed up in there trying to exit, and maybe didn’t exit through the right door.”

She also addressed Melody coming out to present day, and Samuel’s whereabouts in the potential Season 2.

“Samuel is still very much part of the story. And I think Season 2 is, where is Samuel? Where is he? And I think that that is a very exciting branch of our story that we definitely know what we’re doing with,” she said.

“I think there’s a lot of story that we didn’t get a chance to tell in that eight-episode first season. But we do know what Davenport (Martin Donovan) is up to and so that is very much a part of Season 2. That’s great that, hopefully, we leave people with questions. I definitely try not to answer questions before people ask them as an audience. You don’t want to frontload information. We have a lot of cool stuff planned for Davenport.”
