‘Floor Is Lava’ just finished its first season amidst praise and love from the fans of the show, and creators have already hinted towards a second season.
Not just any reality web series but the hottest game show at the moment, ‘Floor Is Lava’ made its mark with its debut last month on Netflix. The show was released on 19th June 2020. The idea behind the obstacle course based series actually comes from a children’s game by the same name.

In the show, multiple contestants compete against one another to clear an obstacle course filled with 80,000 gallons of lava (it is actually a red paint liquid).
The competition is simple enough, the winner gets a prize of 10,000$ and a trophy. The show is known for its quirkiness and light-hearted fun. Here’s everything we know so far about the second season of ‘Floor Is Lava’!
What is the show about?
With only 10 episodes, ‘Floor Is Lava’ proved itself to be one of the best performing shows on Netflix this summer. The show is fun, unique, and an absolute ride to watch. Many people who binged the show are now wondering how they can apply for a place in the next season!
In the show, participants are brought in from all over the country to engage in an extremely competitive obstacle course. The participants have to make their way through the obstacle course and if they make any mistakes they risk falling in the lava pits, which are filled with red goop. The winner of the obstacle course is awarded 10,000$ and a lava lamp trophy.
What can fans expect from season 2?
We can expect a lot of changes in the second season. To begin with, not all of the rooms were utilised in the first season. We saw contestants go through the obstacle courses in the kitchen, study, basement, bedroom, and planetarium.
In the coming season, we may get to see new areas such as backyard, bathroom, garage, dining room, and much more. The show could additionally take inspiration and bring elements from other obstacle course game shows such as ‘Takeshi’s Castle’ or ‘Wipeout’.
When will season 2 come out?
Given how much of a wild success the first 10 episodes have been for the show, and Netflix, it should come as no surprise that the show creators have decided to renew the show for a second season. Most TV reality series on Netflix manage to release one or two seasons each year but, in the case of an obstacle game shows such as ‘Floor Is Lava’, we can expect it to come out much sooner.
However, filming for the show has not begun and will probably not begin immediately due to the coronavirus shutdown. However, ‘Floor Is Lava’ will most likely not be as affected as other shows and season 2 can be expected to air sometime in 2021.
Is the spinoff show happening or is it a rumour?
Producer Megan McGrath expressed her optimism regarding a possible spin-off of the show, centred around child participants, in an interview with a leading Hollywood magazine.
She said “We would love to do a kids version. We would love to do a redemption round for the people who lost this time. All-Stars. We would love to make more in any capacity.
I’ve been getting a ton of videos and pictures of kids all across the world playing in their own homes, so I think we really struck a nerve with family programming. And yeah, kids are begging to play, so we’d love to make it happen for them”.
So it stands to reason that the spinoff is very much possible if the ratings of the original show can hold up in the future episodes.
