In a tweet earlier this week, Sackhoff revealed that Another Life is not returning for season 3. “I’d like to thank everyone single person who watched & supported Another Life on Netflix,” wrote Sackhoff, who stars as astronaut Niko Breckinridge in the sci-fi drama. “To our crew & cast thank you for always working so hard & being prepared. I wish we could do more seasons but sadly it’s just not in the cards. See you on the next adventure. Love Niko.”
Why did Netflix cancel Another Life?
A reason for the cancellation wasn’t given but Another Life has never been a critical or fan darling since its 2019 launch. On Metacritic, season 1 of the series received generally unfavorable reviews from critics and audiences alike. The same was the case on Rotten Tomatoes, where the show’s freshman run only had a 6% critic rating and a 59% audience score.
What is Another Life about?
Created by Aaron Martin, Another Life follows Sackhoff’s Niko who is focused on searching for alien intelligence. Leading a crew on a mission to explore the genesis of an alien artifact, Niko faces unimaginable danger on what might very well be a one-way mission.
Aside from Sackhoff, Another Life also features Justin Chatwin as Erik Wallace, Samuel Anderson as William, A.J. Rivera as Bernie Martinez, Alexander Eling as Javier Almanzar, JayR Tinaco as Zayn Petrossian, Lina Renna as Jana Breckinridge-Wallace, Selma Blair as Harper Glass, Elizabeth Ludlow as Cas Isakovic, Tongayi Chirisa as Richard Ncube, and Dillon Casey as Seth Gage.
Another Life seasons 1 and 2, which consist of 10 episodes each, are streaming on Netflix.
