After a hiatus of two years, HBO has renewed the Avenue 5 series. The second season of Armando Iannucci’s satirical science fiction comedy will continue to follow the crew of a luxury space voyage 40 years into the future as they drive the ship incredibly off-course and into total mayhem.
Iannucci is a two-time Emmy winner for his work on Veep. Season 2 of Avenue 5 was approved not long after the broadcast of Season 1, but a worldwide crisis delayed its premiere until now.
Even though it has been a long time since the events of the drama took place in the actual world, the series begins only a few months after viewers last saw the people aboard the Avenue 5 space shuttle.
The once-promising industry of interstellar tourism has been turned into a living hell for the ship’s crew and the passengers after a catastrophic failure sent the spacecraft hurtling out of control and maybe straight into the sun.
Here’s where we left off on that doomed spaceship adventure before we blast off into the premiere date, timing, plot, cast, and trailer for Avenue 5 Season 2.
Season 2 of Avenue 5 will premiere when?
On Monday, October 10, we will once again be able to watch Avenue 5. Sky Comedy and NOW TV in the UK, and HBO and HBO Max in the US.
If you want to get caught up before the new season drops, you may watch the full first season on demand.

Season 2 of Avenue 5 Synopsis
“Picking up five months after failing to reroute the vessel, Season 2 follows the crew – including fiery engineer Billie (Lenora Crichlow), unpredictable head of customer relations Matt (Zach Woods).
A much longer return journey than intended, false cast and crew, and a gag where Hugh Laurie’s captain character is claiming to be American because passengers find it “more reassuring,” but he’s actually British all take place before the second season of Avenue 5 begins.
The following is the plot summary for Season 2 as provided by HBO: “In the near future depicted in Avenue 5, space tourism is big business.
When the luxury spaceship owned by Herman Judd (Josh Gad) is thrown disastrously off course, Captain Ryan Clark (Hugh Laurie) finds himself in over his head, with an eight-week voyage turning into an eight-year journey.”
“The second season picks up five months after the failed attempt to reroute the vessel and follows the crew as they try to lead, calm, control, and, if necessary, hide from increasingly unruly passengers.
This includes fiery engineer Billie (Lenora Crichlow), unpredictable head of customer relations Matt (Zach Woods), and faithful right-hand Iris (Suzy Nakamura). Humanity celebrates them as heroes on Earth while the entire universe can hear their cries from outer space.”
