HBO has revealed the first trailer and premiere date for the second season of its sci-fi and comedy series, ‘Avenue 5.’ Created by two-time Emmy® winner Armando Iannucci,” the eight-episode second season of AVENUE 5 debuts MONDAY, OCTOBER 10 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max.
The comedy series is set 40 years in the future when traveling the solar system is no longer the stuff of sci-fi fantasy, but a booming, multibillion-dollar business.
AVENUE 5 takes us to a not-too-distant future in which space tourism is a thriving industry. While manning a luxury spacecraft owned by Herman Judd (Josh Gad), Captain Ryan Clark (Hugh Laurie) finds himself in over his head when the ship is thrown disastrously off-course – turning what was supposed to be an eight-week vacation into an eight-year journey. Picking up five months after failing to reroute the vessel, season two follows the crew – including fiery engineer Billie (Lenora Crichlow), unpredictable head of customer relations Matt (Zach Woods), and faithful right-hand Iris (Suzy Nakamura) – as they struggle to lead, calm, control, and, if need be, hide from increasingly rowdy passengers. On earth, they’re lauded as heroes, and everyone in space can hear them scream.
Season two series regular cast includes Hugh Laurie, Josh Gad, Suzy Nakamura, Zach Woods, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Rebecca Front, Lenora Crichlow, and Ethan Phillips. Guest Stars include Andy Buckley, Adam Pålsson, Jessica St. Clair, Kyle Bornheimer, Jonathan Aris, Daisy May Cooper, Lucy Punch, Leila Farzad, and Arsher Ali.
The series is created by Armando Iannucci. Executive producers are Armando Iannucci, Kevin Loader, and Will Smith with Keith Akushie, Jon Brown, and Sean Gray as co-executive producers. Ian Martin and Rose Heiney are supervising producers with Richard Daldry as line producer. AVENUE 5 is also co-produced by Sky UK.
