‘Utopia Falls’ is a science fiction drama that follows a group of teenagers as they prepare to perform in a dance competition to honor the founder of their colony, New Babyl, which is the only Utopian colony in the post-apocalyptic world. Ahead of the event, one of the teens makes a startling discovery that changes their lives forever.
Canadian writer-director Randall Thorne serves as the creator of this futuristic series. He is known for working with hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg and Drake. The co-directors are Melanie Orr, Warren P. Sonoda, and Sudz Sutherland.
The show aims at portraying the significance of culture and history in the modern world that seems to have lost touch with its roots. Packed with a fresh cast and invigorating music, the first season of ‘Utopia Falls’ received a mixed response. Which obviously makes fans of the show wonder: will there be an Utopia season 2? Let’s find out.
Utopia Falls Season 2 Release Date: When Will it Premiere?
‘Utopia Falls’ season 1 released on February 14, 2020, on Hulu. It consists of ten episodes with a runtime of 55-60 minutes each.
As far as the next season goes, here’s what we know. Even though the concept of the show is conducive for multiple seasons, the tepid response to the first season is a worrying sign. At this point of time, we can only wait and watch. The final decision will be taken by Disney based on viewership numbers. Our best guess is that if renewed, ‘Utopia Falls’ season 2 can release sometime in February 2021.

Utopia Falls Plot: What is it About?
‘Utopia Falls’ features some extraordinary teenagers whose lives are about to change. In a dystopian world, set over 300 years into the future, there is a Utopian colony called New Babyl. Each year, a few teens are chosen to perform at the Exemplar entertainment competition to honor the legacy of their founder Gaia.
One of the candidates Aaliyah, accidentally finds a secret library of cultural relics – The Archive. A stunned Aaliyah introduces the place to her fellow candidates, and they begin to wonder why the Tribunal has deprived them of such a multi-faceted assemblage of art forms like Rap and Hip-Hop, etc.
After Bohdi is captured for performing a hip-hop inspired set during the rehearsals, all the Exemplar Candidates, led by Aliyah, start a rebellion against the Tribunal. Aliyah, Apollo, Bohdi, and Brooklyn embark on a quest to uncover whether there are more people beyond the shield that covers New Babyl. Aliyah and her group decide to expose the real side of their idyllic colony through the power of dance and music at the competition. Meanwhile, Authority Phydra does whatever she can to stop Aliyah from fulfilling her purpose.
