The Society: The story so far
Director Christopher Keyser and creator Daniel Hart have done a brilliant job in packing The Society with every ounce of flavour. The power of mystery runs through the show like a full-blown punch in the face and yet it is so fulfilling.
The story bases itself around the lives of a few teenagers from a town called West Ham in Connecticut. This bunch finds themselves trapped in a very peculiar but extraordinary situation. They are forced to run their town on their own after the majority of the population disappears.
Like all great mysteries, the ambience is cold and dark, and we immediately know that it’d be a great ride right from the onset. The thrill begins when the teenagers go on a school trip but find out midway that the it has been cancelled. Upon their return, they fall upon an entirely different West Ham. They find the town surrounded by a dense forest and cut out from the world outside.
There’s zero possibility of communication with the world outside because phones and the internet function only within the town. Everyone except the teenagers have disappeared without a trace. Faced with such challenging circumstances and limited resources, the teenagers establish their own rules for survival as a community.
Season 1 of the show ended with a cliffhanger and the fans have been tormenting their minds with questions. Season 2 of The Society has let out the town’s secrets, leaving the plot solid for season 3.
The town’s secrets are out
By the end of the first season, we realise that the West Ham teens are trapped in an alternate reality in a parallel universe. The final scene of the season took us back to the original West Ham, which is as it was, only this time it’s the teenagers who are missing. The words “We Remember Them” are inscribed on a plaque probably hinting that the teenagers have been assumed dead.
Season 2 is likely to pick it up from here while bringing the town’s secrets to the front. The cast of the show had a lot to say about the future of their characters. Jacques Coliman told Entertainment Tonight, “Here’s the thing though, all of them need to be together in order to survive. You die alone you survive together.”
Speaking about the ending of the first season, director Christopher Keyser remarked,
“Where that ended, there is hope…We have a pretty good sense where we want to go in a second season if we are lucky to get there.” He also listed the questions, for which we might get an answer in season 2 of ‘The Society’ and yes, it includes the town’s secrets. Keyser said, “The question is what is where are they? The second question is why are they there? What crimes happened in West Ham for which they were either punished or from which they were saved? That’s the really big question, isn’t it?”
Season 2 will see a late release?
Last year, the cast of The Society announced the renewal of the show for season 2 on Netflix’s official YouTube channel. They said, “To the citizens of New Ham, we have some big news, really big, like bigger than the time that Gordie figured we’re in a parallel universe. Are you ready? We’re making season two of The Society. Do you know what this means? More pie. More fugitive.
More memes. More answers. About Charlie. And Becca’s baby daddy. And Grizz’s hair. It will be worth the wait.”
Season 2 was scheduled to air later in 2020. However, it seems like the pandemic may have pushed the release into the next year.
