We discuss whether there will be a season 2 of the Prime Video series The Rig and its renewed or canceled status.
The first season of the Prime Video series The Rig has arrived with six episodes. The series follows a group of workers on a Scottish oil rig who are on the verge of returning home when a mysterious fog appears and starts to take over. Throughout each episode, we unpack the who, the what, and the how of this fog and everything in between. The big question is, is there a Season 2 on the horizon for The Rig? Here is everything we know.
Will there be a season 2 of The Rig – renewed or canceled status
Currently, there is no news from Prime Video about a second season of the show. I am sure that they will await how the general audience reacts to the series. After that, if it garners enough interest, they might bring it back. Having seen all six episodes, I believe that they have left the door open for there to be more.
At the end of the season, we see Rose, Fulmer, and Magnus make peace by leaving Baz behind in hopes that it’s a peace offering to this mysterious creature. However, we do know that Coake had been playing the crew the entire time. He lied about what happened at the previous rigs and why he was there, to begin with.
Of course, at the end of the last episode was Coake’s biggest lie to date. Once the helicopters arrived, they were supposed to go into the air and protect some of the people. But, while the key people were on the helicopter, he revealed that they weren’t returning to the rig. This caused everyone to get upset because thousands upon thousands of workers were about to die.
Personally, I feel like if we were to get a second season, they could expand upon the ideas of what this mysterious fog or they could go in-depth about the crew trying to take down Coake. Realistically, it could be both at the same time. You could see Rose, Magnus, and Fulmer attempt to take down Coake by talking to whoever is in charge and also convincing them of how they can work with this fog instead of trying to continue to kill it. The biggest obstacle will be the faith that the company has in Coake to get his job done.
With all that being said, if, for some reason, The Rig doesn’t get renewed, I also see the ending as a closure. After watching, you probably think I am crazy for saying that because the mysterious fog is still wrestling around worldwide and causing problems. However, them leaving on the helicopter, and maybe they are going to a new place where it’s safe. Or maybe I am just dumb to look at that deeply. Who knows? I can see it both ways. Either way, I want a season two, so let’s make it happen, Prime Video.
How many Seasons of The Rig are there?
At this moment in time, there is only 1 season of The Rig. Prime Video has not confirmed how many seasons they are planning for the series.
