NOTE: This article is 8 months old and may not include the most recent information.

Fans of SYFY’s latest original series, “The Ark,” have reason to celebrate, as the network has confirmed the show’s renewal for a second season. With a solid viewership of 6.5 million across all platforms, “The Ark” has successfully established itself as a prominent addition to SYFY’s lineup.

In terms of viewership, the series premiere on February 1st performed remarkably well, boasting the best total viewer count (1.1 million) since January 2021’s “Resident Alien” and topping the 18-49 demo since October 2021’s “Day of the Dead.” The season finale is scheduled to air on Wednesday, April 19 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on SYFY, with all episodes available for streaming on Peacock.

Co-showrunners and executive producers Dean Devlin and Jonathan Glassner expressed their excitement about the renewal, saying, “We couldn’t be more excited to get back into space with the crew of the Ark. SYFY continues to be an amazing partner and home for this series.” Lisa Katz, President of Scripted Programming at NBCUniversal and Streaming, added, “The success of ‘The Ark’ is just another example of delivering on a promise to provide a wide spectrum of quality shows across our linear, cable, and streaming portfolios. Heading into space with Dean and Jonathan has truly been a trip worth taking, and we’re tremendously excited about how this otherworldly adventure will continue in season two.”

Set 100 years in the future, “The Ark” explores the era of planetary colonization missions, essential for humanity’s survival. The series follows the first of these missions, Ark One, as it encounters a disastrous event that results in immense destruction and loss of life. With over a year remaining before they reach their target planet and facing dwindling supplies and leadership, the surviving crew must rise to the occasion to stay on course and ensure their survival. The first season’s cast includes Christie Burke, Richard Fleeshman, Reece Ritchie, Stacey Read, and Ryan Adams.

Dean Devlin (“Independence Day,” “Stargate”) and Jonathan Glassner (“Stargate SG-1”) are co-showrunners and executive producers, working alongside Marc Roskin and Rachel Olschan-Wilson of Electric Entertainment. Jonathan English of Balkanic Media and Steve Lee serve as producers for the first season. With an engaging premise, talented cast, and strong viewership, it’s no wonder that “The Ark” is charting a course for success with its second season on SYFY.
