Syfy announced today that The Ark has been renewed for Season 2. The early pickup comes with two episodes remaining in the sci-fi drama's 12-episode freshman run. A new episode airs tonight ahead of the season finale next Wednesday.

"We couldn't be more excited to get back into space with the crew of the Ark," creators Dean Devlin and Jonathan Glassner said in a joint statement. "Syfy continues to be an amazing partner and home for this series."

Set 100 years in the future, The Ark follows mankind starting planetary colonization missions as a necessity to help secure the survival of the human race. The first mission utilizes a spacecraft known as Ark One, but it encounters a catastrophic event that causes mass destruction and loss of life. With over a year left to go before reaching their target planet, the remaining crew must find a way to stay on course while dealing with a lack of life-sustaining supplies and loss of leadership.

Look for Season 2 of The Ark in 2024.
