Has Ancient Apocalypse been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Ancient Apocalypse is the latest series on Netflix, diving into the idea of an ancient civilization walking about long before hunter/gatherers and have been lost to history. After finishing all 8 episodes you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:


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 not been renewed for a second season. Given the nature of the show’s content, that could well change.

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 predict that this will be renewed for a second season.

This is the perfect sort of show to binge through and its very moreish as well, making it an easy series to sit through.

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


What we know about season 2 so far:

Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Netflix have not green-lit a sequel. However, there’s a very good case for another season to follow.

If this is renewed, expect more of Hancock’s finding to come to the foreground, along with more theories and interesting revelations.

As mentioned above, we predict that this will be renewed but we’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known though!

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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
