Armando Iannucci’s dark humor-filled series Avenue 5 will soon be releasing its next episode. With the ship barely escaping the sun, the passengers are more berserk than ever, and the craziness just increases with each episode. The sheer ridiculous nature of the ship’s occupiers, coupled with the unexpected plot twists, makes the show unique and darkly hilarious.
Avenue 5 was first seen on television in January 2020. The show was renewed for another season soon after the first one was released, but the production had to halt due to the pandemic restrictions. It finally continued filming in late 2021. The second season of Avenue 5 premiered on October 10th, 2022. In the first season, we see members of a spaceship called Avenue 5 being endangered after the original captain, Joe, passes away from a heart attack.
The control is taken over by Ryan Clark, who, by any means, does not have experience leading anyone, let alone a giant spaceship. He gets voted into the position just because he “looks like a captain and his vibe matches the role,” as said in season one. He now has to calm the passengers while also hoping to find a way back to earth.
Avenue 5: Season 2’s Premise
Season 2 begins after the ship is accidentally knocked off-course by Karen, making the distance much more than it was before. The crew will now have to inform the passengers that it will now take eight years, almost a decade, to reach earth. With depleting food sources and an increased number of frustrated people, Captain Ryan and his crew will be dealing with all sorts of problems with no hope in sight.
Just as Ryan is hesitant to inform the crew about the shift in course, the ship gets further away from its main course after a girl accidentally sets a different route. This causes the ship to form a path directly in front of the sun. The crew prepares everyone and themselves for death. Eels, the only food source left, are susceptible to heat, and with the ship becoming an oven, the eels are prioritized over people.
Turns out, they would just pass right away in front of it without any serious complications. The growing unrest leads to the majority demanding that Captain Ryan be replaced by someone else. The people decide to take over, but the democracy on the ship ends up doing more harm than good.
