HBO’s science-fiction drama The Nevers quickly drew fans in with its mystery-filled plotlines, action-packed scenes, and surprising twists. And, while the midseason finale (finally!) answered some damn questions, we’re still left unsatisfied with our favorite character’s storylines. Thus, it makes sense that we (and probably you too) are wondering if this 18th-century mystery is coming back for a Season 2.

What makes The Nevers so great is that it can answer our much-needed questions while also opening up new storylines and character arcs at any second. We finally know how the “touched” received their powers— from the Galanthi, a.k.a a fancy word for aliens. But, this reveal only brings in new plotlines and opens up more questions. Who are these extraterrestrials and why are they here? Why did they give Victorian women and men superpowers? And, who actually is Amalia True?

While Season 1's part two will give us more clues on these alien entities, it’s doubtful that every storyline will be wrapped neatly within six more episodes. Thus, it reasons that a season 2 is much needed. And, with how popular The Nevers is—it was HBO’s Max best-ever debut for original TV series—a second season is probably imminent.

Here’s what we know about the second season of The Nevers:

Will there be a second season of The Nevers?

Well, we don’t know too much about a Season 2, as Season 1 Part 2 hasn’t wrapped production yet. Filming for Season 1 is slated to continue at the end of the summer, and the remaining six episodes won’t be premiering until 2022, according to Bustle.

Additionally, there’s been a much-publicized bit of unrest around the show's production. Joss Whedon, who created the series and was the major creative force behind much of Part 1 of Season 1, stepped down during production. He stated that his decision was because of the struggles of working through the pandemic: “I am genuinely exhausted, and am stepping back to martial my energy towards my own life, which is also at the brink of exciting change.” Of course, it's worth adding that Whedon has been accused of toxic workplace behavior by the likes of Ray Fisher and Gal Gadot (on Justice League after taking over for Zack Snyder) as well as numerous members of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer cast.

Whedon's replacement, British showrunner Philippa Goslett, will still be in charge when production resumes for the second half of season one.

Who will return for season 2?

Each character’s storyline is sort of up in the air as the remaining six episodes of season one haven’t premiered yet. But as it stands, there’s no reason to assume they wouldn’t. But, we won’t have any definite answers until more information is officially released by HBO—or leaks or behind-the-scenes looks give us a more clear answer.
