AMC Networks has ordered a second season of the AMC+ exclusive series Moonhaven ahead of its season one finale on August 4.

Created by showrunner Peter Ocko (Lodge 49, Black Sails, Elementary, Pushing Daisies), the series centers on a utopian colony on the moon that may hold the keys to preserving life on Earth.

Set 100 years in the future, the series follows a lunar cargo pilot and smuggler who finds herself accused of a crime and marooned on Moonhaven, where she is sucked into a conspiracy to gain control of the artificial intelligence responsible for the colony’s miracles. She teams with a local detective to stop the forces that want to destroy Earth’s last hope.

The AMC Studios production stars Emma McDonald (Queens of Mystery), Dominic Monaghan (Lost), Amara Karan (Doctor Who), Ayelet Zurer (Losing Alice), Joe Manganiello (True Blood), Kadeem Hardison (Black Monday) and Yazzmin Newell (The Last Tree).

“This is such an engaging and entertaining series, brilliantly conceived and run by Peter,” said Dan McDermott, president of entertainment and AMC Studios for AMC Networks. “The story is suspenseful, provocative and prescient and features a phenomenal cast that delivers mesmerizing performances. What Peter and the team are crafting for season two is next level, and the fans will be thrilled.”

“I couldn’t be more excited to return to the moon and continue our story with this amazing cast and crew,” Ocko said. “AMC+ has been a wonderful partner in bringing our world to life, and we can’t wait to continue the journey.”
