What is Ancient Apocalypse about?

Ancient Apocalypse is one of those shows that feels like it should be shown on the History channel at 2am, when you wander back home completely drunk from a crazy night out, and throw something on while demolishing a kebab. Not speaking from personal experience of course!

Across the 8 episodes, Hancock and his team jet across the world to various different heritage locations, pointing out and highlighting potential evidence of ancient civilizations that have been around since before our hunter-gatherer ancestors, showcasing ancient civilizations that were here way before them.

We have extensive coverage of Ancient Apocalypse across the site, including a full season review. You can find that HERE!

Has Ancient Apocalypse been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Ancient Apocalypse has been renewed for a second season. 

Generally Netflix 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 (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Irregulars) Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.

So far, Ancient Apocalypse has had a pretty decent reaction from audiences and critics, with the show already doing well to bring in viewers, and of very polarizing opinions both sides of the debate of course!

Given the show is trending in different regions across the world, we predicted that this would be renewed for a second season.

There is no release date at the time of writing but details of Season 2’s episodes have been released online.

We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!

  1. The smithsonian institution is fight the show very hard they will not allow this kind of theory being shown to the publis

  2. Yes, a second series is absolutely nessary!
    Investigation and documentation are what make scientific discovery.
    Dismissing posabilty is not scientific. The need for this research of evaluation evidence outweighs other Netflix science fiction series programs. Money spent on entertainment other than documentation is absurd!

  3. Absolutely fascinating show! I hope there will be a second season with access to some sites previously banned.

  4. I can’t wait to see a second serie and hear about Graham Hancock’s theories.

    Well done Netflix.

  5. Netflix will be smart to renew Ancient Apocalypse for more seasons! The information is very interesting and people need to be aware of what can happen again. He makes sense!! Well done!

  6. Graham has mentioned in several interviews that he would have plenty of content ready to produce a new season so it is evident that he has sketched it so far. He is just awaiting the green light from Ntx. I hope they partner up to continue with this brilliant series.

  7. I never leave comments but I want more content (a 2nd season). It was excellent. Fascinating, compelling, thought provoking, informitive, imaginitive.

    I also want the snake mound in Ohio to grant him access. Let’s get that in season 2, throw some money at them.

  8. It would be a crime not to renew such an informative series. One should always have opportunities to question the past. Mr. Hancock is intelligent, informative, and seeks to enlighten.
    Please green light this series for another season.

  9. I love this new series ! . I love its freshness and new ideas . This is very needed in the realm of orthodox, old , facts hiding and closed minded archaeology of today . We need to challenge the dogma in face of new discoveries being done . I am happy the mainstream archaeologists getting histeria about this . You cannot progress if you don’t challenge, you cannot find anything if you don’t look . Recent years brought to the surface some amazing , self made archaeologists who now have a great success , like Dr. Kathleen Martinez ( Cleopatra dig ) only because they damned to follow their own fresh perspective . Many times these people are ridiculed by mainstream ” experts ” but they often make better discoveries . Today mainstream archaeology is just too lazy to discover anything . The humanity needs new , brave people to find the answers for many questions we dare to ask finally . We need openness and stop hiding artifacts which don’t fit the timelines. I will welcome season 2 .

  10. Let me guess. You read the guardians review before writing your own? “History channel at 2am” lazy lazy lazy

  11. I didn’t realize there was only one season, and I didn’t realize there were only eight episodes. When I sat down and got comfy to watch episode 9, and then realized there wasn’t one, I wanted to drive off a cliff. In Minecraft, of course. I bought Graham Hancock’s first book in 1995 and I’ve been hooked ever since. I’m stoked he’s getting mainstream attention.

  12. A refreshing and thought provoking show combined with historical context. I really enjoyed season 1 and look forward to season 2. Again, something refreshing from the usual.

  13. Very interesting and thought provoking. I look forward to the next series. Hopefully some mainstream collaboration will come about between different scientific disciplines instead of entrenched positions. It reminds me of the years when the work of Elaine Morgan (journalist) was ignored or derided, only to be accepted years later. Let’s hope lessons have been learned.

  14. Have followed Graham Hancock for many many years….his insights and the ability to grind down to the facts are truly wonderful. Renewing another season would be smart.
