This article is a preview for Avenue 5 season 2, episode 8 and contains details about the release date, time, and where to watch online.


Created and written by Veep‘s Armando IannucciAvenue 5 is a sharply satirical sci-fi comedy on HBO and HBO Max. After a successful first season about a luxury space cruise that went catastrophically wrong, the second season picks up where we left off, with the journey having been extended by eight long years after a series of avoidable calamities.

Here’s the official Avenue 5 Season 2 synopsis:

Picking up five months after failing to reroute the vessel, Season 2 follows the crew – including fiery engineer Billie, unpredictable head of customer relations Matt, and faithful right-hand Iris – as they struggle to lead, calm, control, and, if need be, hide from increasingly unruly passengers. On earth, they’re lauded as heroes, and in space, everyone can hear them scream.

Avenue 5 season 2, episode 7 recap:

  • Judd revealed that the ship can split into two halves, which means that only one side needs to be sacrificed to the missile.
  • The logic is that the rear of the ship, where the engines are, will be targeted since the missile is programmed for maximum damage.
  • Using the ship’s onboard AI, the passengers are all ranked. Anyone ranked 1-3000 makes the front of the ship, but it results in a lot of chaos since everyone quickly figures out how to game the system.
  • Ryan consigns himself to the ship’s rear to save Elena. Billie also heads to the back despite being ranked second out of everyone, since the engineers should be with the engines.
  • Judd, however, who is also sent to the back, leads a minor charge to the front. In so doing, he ironically makes that half of the ship the more viable target.

How many episodes will Avenue 5 season have?

Avenue 5 Season 2 will consist of eight episodes, down from the nine of the first season, and they’ll run on a weekly cadence through to November 28, 2022.

Predictions

There is no official synopsis for the episode available, but we can make some assumptions:

  • Enough major characters are on each side of the ship that I don’t think either half will be destroyed.
  • Is that lithium-rich asteroid still a thing?
  • Will Charlie make a move on Ryan?
  • I’m expecting at least one major character death.
