MGM+ announced today that Beacon 23 has been renewed for Season 2. The news comes the day after the sci-fi thriller wrapped its 8-episode freshman run, which ultimately garnered a mixed reception from critics and viewers.

"We're thrilled that Beacon 23 has found a loyal audience on MGM+ and look forward to sharing more episodes with fans in 2024," said David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg, Co-Executive Chairmen, Boat Rocker Media and Co-Chairmen, Boat Rocker Studios. "Thank you to our dedicated creative partners, the wonderful team at MGM+, and the talented cast and crew for helping deliver what is sure to be an unforgettable season of television."

Based on the best-selling book by Hugh Howey, the series is set in the farthest reaches of the Milky Way, where the fates of a government agent, Aster, and a stoic ex-military man, Halan, become entangled after they find themselves trapped together inside one of many beacons that serve as a lighthouse for intergalactic travelers. Every beacon is run by one highly trained human and a specialized Artificial Intelligence. When Aster mysteriously finds her way to the lonely beacon-keeper Halan, a tense battle of wills begins. Halan questions whether Aster is friend or foe, as her ability to disguise her agenda and motives could make her a formidable opponent.

Look for Season 2 of Beacon 23 in April 2024.
