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

February 25, 2023 Update – Prime Video have confirmed that The Rig has been ordered for a Season 2. Yes, that’s right, the series will be getting a second season, with filming to start later this year. 

January 10, 2023 Update – 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.

Spoilers Ahead

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, there is only 1 season of The Rig. However, Prime Video have confirmed there will be two seasons after renewing for a second installment. 

The Rig Season 2 Release Date

Prime Video have not confirmed a release date for The Rig Season 2. However, with filming to begin later this year, we can fully expect the second season to be on our screens in December 2023 or early 2024.

    When a show leaves it’s viewers with an extreem cliff hanger as in “The Rig”, with no promise of another season; it diminishes the entire experience. Who wants no end to a story the were enjoying. If that is the case, I would that I had not have bothered.

    It is well done and the acting was enjoyable to watch. Good Sci-fi, so a season two is good reason to continue being a prime,member.

    Intrigued enough to want more. Hoping that Amazon Prime allows a season 2. With each episode, I wanted more and left hanging at the ending episode #6 only made me want more.

    I really enjoyed this! So many questions and each episode answers many of them. But a SEASON 2 would really give us viewers some closure. Definitely will tune in if the is a second season. Love the storyline and the acting. The characters really pulled the story along.

    Season 2 a must have. Is it an extinction event? Have plans been made.. what happens to the helicopter? The crew? What is the mysterious operation, who planned it and what contingencies made?

  • January 12, 2023 at 3:51 am

    Oh please, please, please put me out of my misery and let me have a season 2!!

  • January 16, 2023 at 4:05 am

    Definitely need a season 2.
    Can’t leave us with this cliffhanger and not comeback to end the story at least. I hate to get interested in a show then they just end it and on a cliffhanger. Makes me not want to watch new series for fear the same thing will happen.

  • January 19, 2023 at 7:14 pm

    Please don’t leave us all hanging surely you will make a season two as it’s been left so open. There is still loads to know and plenty to go on.

  • January 22, 2023 at 11:38 pm

    10 of us in this room as I am writing want a Season 2!
    Some of them say they won’t renew their prime video if the rig does not have a second season!

  • January 23, 2023 at 9:28 am

    It really is a great story, i love it! Please more episodes!!

  • January 24, 2023 at 1:03 pm

    Adding my plea to others! There must be a season 2 – where are they going? What happens when they get there? Is the baby ok or will it be a conduit between this world and the Ancestor?!

  • January 25, 2023 at 3:25 am

    I really enjoyed the series and hope that they will bring it back for seasons 12345678910 etc. Great series they could take this series in so many different directions, it could be just like Supernatural if the writer’s have a good imagination!

  • January 26, 2023 at 12:53 am
