The Society season two on Netflix could be about to get a whole lot darker if villain Campbell Eliot (played by Toby Wallace) rises to power.
The teen drama, which stars the likes of Kathryn Newton, Gideon Adlon, Jack Mulhern and Sean Berdy, follows a group of school kids who are mysteriously transported into a replica of their hometown with no trace of their parents, and they’re stuck there indefinitely.
The first series came to a dramatic end after 10 intense episodes and now showrunner Chris Keyser has told Metro.co.uk what the future looks like for the survivors of West Ham if the streaming giant brings it back into our lives. Dear God, please bring it back.
Talking about what could be on the horizon, Chris began: ‘Ali brought in the question of what happens to your political position regardless of the other world and whether people believed or didn’t believe that Ali and Casandra working were actually doing the right thing, or whether they were autocrats in their own right. But they didn’t take revenge on their enemies.
‘Now we’re getting to the part where people are beginning to actually punish people who disagree with them and that’s a real risk.
‘What will happen, we don’t know. What kind of world will Harry and Campbell create when they take over?’
Chris continued: And now other things are at stake. With resources running thin, will there be classes of society with people working for other people opposed to being fluid about that?
‘There are all kinds of different questions we get to explore in that. I promise you that if this goes on long enough, this will not be the final answers to how power is exercised. It’s a fluid thing.’
Chris previously told us that he has already planned a number of seasons and is hoping that it could go on for years.
‘We don’t have it all worked out, but we have lots of ideas of where we want to go,’ he enthused.
‘We’re on our own personal cliff-hanger right now. I would hope so [that The Society is officially renewed for a second season].
‘I think that it’s a large cast, no one comes in from the outside, those alliances and power sharing all shift and there are lots of places to go.’
He added: ‘In some ways the whole world is open to us, these kids are in their own world. I don’t just mean the politics of it, but the relationships, all of that stuff. ‘We’re reliant on an audience demand but we’re ready to provide that. We also have an end in mind, we know where we want to go to.’
The Society is available to stream on Netflix.
