Has Dark Matter been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Dark Matter is the latest sci-fi mystery on Apple, with 9 episodes chock full of action, thrills and suspense. So after watching it in its entirety, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:


What is Dark Matter about?

Dark Matter is the latest novel adaptation, coming right from the heart of Apple Studios. This time around, it’s Blake Crouch’s sci-fi thriller. The show takes a similar approach to the book, and centers on a man named Jason, who finds his life upended when he’s abducted and thrown into an alternate version of his life.

With the mind-bending landscape of everything changing around him, Jason tries to get back to his true reality in spite of everything going on around him. But there’s a problem. His kidnapper? None other than himself.


Has Dark Matter been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Dark Matter has not been renewed for season 2. Generally Apple would gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate.

With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly. Other times, it can take months before a decision over a show’s future is made.

So far, Dark Matter has had a really good reaction from critics and audiences alike, although some have commented (including ourselves) that the pacing is slow and could have done with being tightened up.

Given the way this show is set up, we’re predicting that this will not be renewed for a second season. The series does have plenty of potential but the source material is complete. Unless Blake Crouch decides to write additional material after the book and run with it here, it seems very unlikely that this will occur. However, we could be completely wrong, given Apple do love to renew a lot of their shows, so take our prediction with a pinch of salt!


What we know about season 2 so far:

Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point as Apple haven’t officially renewed this one. Should it be renewed, we have some big questions.

What world have Charlie, Daniela and Jason stepped into? What happened to all the Jasons left behind? Is this really going to be a perfect world for them? And why is Ryan trying to find Amanda in the technologically advanced world? 

While it seems unlikely, if this show is renewed, we’d expect it to be green-lit with another 9 episode order, and bring back a lot of the old cast too.
