Avenue 5 is a science fiction comedy television series created by Armando Iannucci that premiered on HBO in the United States on January 19, 2020.
Hugh Laurie and Josh Gad play the captain and owner of a fictional interplanetary cruise ship Avenue 5, respectively. The show was created by HBO in the United States and Sky UK in the United Kingdom.
What Happened in Avenue 5 Season 1?
Following the inaugural voyage of Avenue 5, the captain and crew of the shuttle dealt with a minor malfunction of the ship that would extend the trip around the galaxy by a few years, rather than around two months.
Throughout the episodes, we see the crew attempt to keep this secret from the vacationers on board, as well as deal with general comedic shenanigans from its wealthy and spoiled customer base.
In one episode, seven people died after exiting the ship through an airlock, thinking they were in a simulation. At the end of Season 1, the crew learns that the voyage has been extended to eight years, rather than the original eight weeks.
When is the Release Date for Avenue 5 Season 2?
On Monday, October 10, HBO and HBO Max will premiere the first episode.
What is the Plot of Avenue 5 Season 2?
Avenue 5 Season 2 begins five months after Season 1 ended when the crew failed to correct the spacecraft’s course. They must now inform the ship’s wealthy and snobbish passengers of the extended journey.
Not only is the ship way off course, but it’s also running low on food. Naturally, they must figure out how to deal with, if not completely avoid, the spacecraft’s increasingly anarchic passengers.
Who is in the Cast for Avenue 5 Season 2?
Captain Ryan Clark, played by Hugh Laurie, is at the helm of the doomed spaceship. Other Season 1 cast members returning include Josh Gad as eccentric billionaire owner Herman Judd, Zach Woods as Head of Customer Relations Matt Spencer, Lenora Crichlow as second engineer Billie McEvoy, Suzy Nakamura as Avenue 5 associate owner Iris Kimura, and Rebecca Front as passenger Karen Kelly.
Is There a Trailer for Avenue 5 Season 2?
Yes, HBO released the series trailer on September 14, and it appears that the ship’s crew members are in just as bad shape as we left them — possibly worse, given that they appear to be heading toward the sun.
Expect chaos around every corner this season, with scenes of the crew and passengers fighting, arguing, and rioting.
