We discuss whether there will be a season 2 of Prime Video series The Rig and its renewed or canceled status.

The first season of First video series The platform came with six episodes. The series follows a group of workers on a Scottish oil rig who are about to return home when a mysterious fog appears and begins to take over. Throughout each episode, we unpack the who, what, and how of this fog and everything in between. The big question is, is there a season 2 on the horizon for The platform? Here’s everything we know.

Will there be a season 2 of The Rig – status renewed or canceled

Currently, there is no news from Prime Video regarding a second season of the show. I’m sure they’ll be waiting for the general public’s reaction to the series. After that, if it gets enough interest, they might bring it back. After seeing all six episodes, I believe they left the door open for there to be more.

Spoilers ahead

At the end of the season, we see Rose, Fulmer, and Magnus making peace leaving Baz behind in the hopes that it’s a peace offering to this mysterious creature. However, we do know that Coake played crew the whole time. He lied about what happened on previous platforms and why he was there, to begin with.

Of course, at the end of the last episode was Coake’s biggest lie to date. Once the helicopters arrived, they were supposed to fly away and protect certain people. But, while key people were in the helicopter, he revealed they were not returning to the platform. It shocked everyone because thousands and thousands of workers were on the verge of death.

Personally, I feel like if we were to get a second season, they could expand on the ideas of that mysterious fog or they could go deeper into the team trying to take down Coake. In reality, it could be both at the same time. You can see Rose, Magnus, and Fulmer trying to defeat Coake by talking to whoever is in charge and also convincing them how they can work with that fog instead of trying to keep killing him. The biggest hurdle will be the company’s trust in Coake to do its job.

That being said, if, for any reason, The platform is not renewed, I also see the end as a closure. After watching, you probably think I’m crazy for saying this because the mysterious fog is still thrashing around the world and causing trouble. However, they go by helicopter, and maybe they go to a new place where it’s safe. Or maybe I’m just stupid for looking into this in depth. Who knows? I can see it both ways. Either way, I want a season two, so let’s make it happen, Prime Video.
