Moonhaven Season 2 Renewal & Plot Overview
Moonhaven has been a smash hit for AMC+ over the summer, becoming the 2nd most popular streaming series on the platform behind Dark Winds, which also aired this summer. Like its predecessor, Moonhaven was renewed by AMC+ for another 6-episode season in 2023!
AMC+ announced the renewal on July 28th, 2022, a week before the show’s season finale on August 4th, 2022. The president of AMC Studios claims that “what Peter [showrunner Peter Ocko, Elementary, Pushing Daisies] and the team are crafting for season two is next level.”
Moonhaven shows both a dystopian and utopian future. One hundred years into the future, Earth has become a desolate wasteland in desperate need of help. In order to get it, a utopian society has been formed on the Moon to develop new technology and culture for the Earth.
Bella Sway, a soldier, smuggler, pilot, and Earther, is thrown headfirst into a political conflict over the control of Moonhaven and the artificial intelligence IO which works on the Moon. She begins the journey as a skeptic, but she’s reluctantly pulled into a plan to save the Earth.
Moonhaven Season 1 Overview
In season one, we discovered a lot about Bella, her sister Chill, her mother Loa, and the legacy she left behind on the moon. Bella began as a smuggler, but when the Earth Envoy’s guard Tomm attacked her, she became a member of Moonhaven.
Paul, a mooner detective, was in charge of Bella’s welfare on the moon. Together, they began to unravel the mystery of why Bella’s sister got killed and a plot to turn mooners against the Earth and stop the bridge, an initiative to bring help to the Earth.
Tomm, the Envoy’s guard, turns out to be the leader of the rebellious mooners, and he knows that Bella’s sister died over for a synthetic flower. The flower leads to a tree outside of Moonhaven that shows people their original bloodlines, something that’s forbidden on the Moon.
Indira, the loyal Envoy of the Earth, was raised all her life to work with IO and bring peace to the Earth with the help of the moon. In the season finale, it’s revealed she’s been working against the cause and plans to take control of the moon and IO, leaving the Earth behind to die.
Moonhaven Season 2 Release Date, Casting & Everything We Know So Far
As of now, AMC+ has not announced a release date for series two of Moonhaven. Since the season finale aired on August 4th, we probably won’t hear any news of that kind for a few months. However, series one premiered in early July, so chances are series two may as well.
As far as casting goes, the season finale didn’t eliminate any regulars from the lineup, so we should see Bella, Paul, Arlo, Indira, Tomm, and Maite next season. With Paul and Lone’s relationship coming to an end, it’s up in the air whether we’ll see Elaine Tan, who plays his wife.
Chances are high that we’ll see more of Paul’s children, Elna and Wish, who both had big roles to play this season, as well as Sonda, Maite’s second in command. If Bella’s journey is successful, we may even see more of her mother, Loa, played by Charis Agbonlahor.
While we don’t know for certain which path season two will take, it’s easy to guess that we might finally get a glimpse at the aliens Maite claimed to see as Bella goes to find her. It’s also very possible that a war between Tomm and Indira’s rebels and the mooners will be a focal point.
