Is The I-Land going to be renewed for a season 2 at Netflix … or can you go ahead and expect cancelation coming up in the near future? Within this piece, we’ll offer up everything that you need to know on this very subject.
Let’s start off by noting this — Netflix is billing the drama, about people who mysteriously wake up on an island with no memory as to how they got there, as a limited series. That would imply that there are no plans to bring the show back for any more episodes down the line. Yet, when Netflix labeled the trailer, they noted that it was for “season 1” — theoretically, this could leave the door open for something more.
Also, be sure to go ahead and remember what we consider to be the general rule for limited series in general — if you perform well enough, there’s a good chance that someone is going to bring you back for more. Look at The Sinner and Big Little Lies for evidence of shows that got another life, even though we’re not entirely sure that there were ever plans for either one of them to originally go past a single season.
The unfortunate news for The I-Land as a product for the time being is simply this: The reviews have not been good for the most part. Meanwhile, we wouldn’t say that Netflix has given the series a whole lot of promotion, either. The idea here was for this show to be at least something comparable to Lost, mostly because every network out there should want their own version of the ABC hit. The problem is that those sort of shows really only come around once every few years and it’s hard to get a whole lot more of them.
When it comes to the future of The I-Land, we’ll say this — unless there is more news officially announced somewhere, it’s not coming back for another season. Because of the way it was billed, Netflix can easily send it off into the sunset without fail or worry.
