The good news for The Peripheral’s audience is on the way. The first season of the series, adapted from William Gibson’s novel of the same name, premiered on Prime Video in October. Scott Smith, along with Westworld’s Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, serves as an executive producer on the TV show adaption he developed.
The film features Chloe Grace Moretz as Flynne Fisher, a virtual reality gamer of the future who discovers a new, more fulfilling existence in a hyperrealistic simulation game. There has been no announcement on a potential renewal as of yet. Some viewers may have worried that Prime Video would not renew The Peripheral because of the recent cancellations of other shows.
Nevertheless, an encouraging update on the series has emerged straight from Amazon. Amazon Studios’ Head of TV Vernon Sanders just confirmed to Collider that production on Season 2 has commenced, despite the fact that no renewal has been given for the show.
The Peripheral Season 2 Release Date
Amazon Studios, as previously stated, has decided not to order a second season. They probably will, and we expect them to. We anticipate its delivery in the Autumn of 2023 if it is renewed. If the show is announced in the next few weeks, like the last season, then we can probably expect a release date in late 2023.
It will likely have a similar premiere schedule to the previous season, airing on Fridays to maintain continuity and a comparable break between seasons. Season one of The Peripheral finished filming over a year before the opening episode became available to stream online, and while the wait for season two is not expected to be quite as long, viewers should not count on a speedy turnaround.

The Peripheral Season 2 Cast
The Flynne Fisher we knew from the timeframe we’ve been following no longer exists, but another version of her does. In our final explanation, we go into further detail. In a potential second season, this “new” Flynne would be accompanied by the following:
• Jack Reynor as Burton Fisher
• Eli Goree as Conner
• Gary Carr as Wilf Netherton
• Charlotte Riley as Aelita
• JJ Feild as Lev Zubov
• T’Nia Miller as Cherise Nuland
• Alexandra Billings as Inspector Ainsley
• Katie Leung as Ash
The Peripheral Season 2 Plot
When Burton finds out that Conner murdered Flynne, he is going to flip out. In spite of the fact that he’s following her orders to prevent the world from collapsing due to the Jackpot, he’s still not going to be happy about it. Flynne may not find out that he was behind her killing, but since Flynne made it appear as though the Met Police were responsible, we shouldn’t put too much stock in that.
The Jackpot may have been temporarily halted by Flynne’s efforts to prevent Cherise, head of the Research Institute, from erasing the data implanted into her mind earlier in the season, but for how long? Cherise may still be focused on annihilating that chronology even if she is confident that she has completely eradicated the data (which transformed into bacterial DNA within Flynne), a brutal “just in case” approach.
But, Cherise may have her hands full attempting to track down Flynne from the new timeline, who still carries this information in her Genes. When Aelita got back, she told Wilf some devastating news. His entire existence up to this point (or at least the part he can remember) has been a deception, but the reality will be revealed after the implant is taken out.
Aelita learned this the hard way when she took out her implant and discovered that the implants erase memory. For Wilf, this means that the killing of his family and five million others across England will no longer stand. They were all slain by the Klept. When an epidemic broke out among them, they had to be eradicated.
Aelita plans to exact revenge on the Klept, and she’s recruited Wilf and people with similar views to help her. She only needs Flynne’s brain to get at the information she needs to destroy them. Wilfe may choose to go with his sister in Season 2, which might have devastating consequences for his budding romance with Flynne.

The Peripheral Season 2 Trailer: When Can I Watch it?
Not for a bit yet, but fair enough, most of us are probably still processing the events of season one, so we threw that trailer up there to help. We’ll keep our ears to the ground for more information on a trailer, though, and report back as soon as we hear anything.
