Last Summer’s supernatural mock-reality/horror series Siberia may not have drawn a lot of viewers during its first season run, but the show did develop a small group of dedicated fans. And they have been hoping that no news is good news for the show as they have waited for an announcement that a second season is on the way. However, NBC recently unveiled its Summer schedule, and Siberia was not included in the lineup. That confirms at least that this network will not air a second season of the series, but is there a chance it will still continue?
The fact is that there was never an official cancellation announcement and the show is owned by its production company, not NBC. It was also produced relatively inexpensively, so a second season could still happen if another network or a streaming service like Amazon or Netflix decided to pick it up. Unfortunately, it never built up much of a following, so I don’t know that any of the networks have an interest in picking it up. A few months back I heard that things were still being worked out for a possible second season, but nothing substantial has surfaced. I have to think that with no news by this point there’s little chance of another season making it to the airwaves. But then this show was produced on a different model than the typical television series, so it’s not out of the question. The only thing settled at this point is that NBC will not bring the series back. It could still live on in another venue, but that seems to be getting increasingly less likely. UPDATE: There is Still a Chance for a Second Season of Siberia!!!
