SCIFI RENEWS HIT SERIES “THE ARK” FOR A SECOND SEASON
SCIFI’s newest original hit series The Ark has been renewed for a second season.
“We couldn’t be more excited to get back into space with the crew of the Ark. SCIFI continues to be an amazing partner and home for this series,” said executive producers/co-showrunners Dean Devlin and Jonathan Glassner.
“The success of The Ark is just another example of delivering on a promise to provide a wide spectrum of quality shows across our linear, cable and streaming portfolios,” said Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Programming, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “Heading into space with Dean and Jonathan has truly been a trip worth taking and we’re tremendously excited about how this otherworldly adventure will continues in season two.”
Created by Dean Devlin, The Ark takes place 100 years in the future when planetary colonization missions have begun as a necessity to help secure the survival of the human race. The first of these missions on a spacecraft known as Ark One encounters a catastrophic event causing massive destruction and loss of life. With more than a year left to go before reaching their target planet, a lack of life-sustaining supplies and loss of leadership, the remaining crew must become the best versions of themselves to stay on course and survive.
The season one of the series for the first time, in addition to the film crew from Serbia, also has a numerous number of Slavic Artists clients from Serbia and the region. In addition to Pavle Jerinić and Tiana Upčeva, who are among the main actors of the series, in “The Ark” the roles are played by: Tamara Radovanović (as Jelena Griff), Jelena Moore (Stela Cogner), Miloš Cvetković (Sasha Novak), Dominik Čičak (Harris Beckner), Tanasije Ćakić (Florian Rupnik), as well as actors who live and work in Serbia: Jessica Yemi (Naomi Spencer) and Steven Moore (William Mulchany).
Dean Devlin (Independence Day, Stargate) and Jonathan Glassner (Stargate SG-1) are co-showrunners and executive producers alongside Marc Roskin and Rachel Olschan-Wilson of Electric Entertainment. Jonathan English of Balkanic Media and Steve Lee serve as producers for the first season.
For the Balkan region “The Ark” Season one airs Wednesdays on SCIFI Channel at 11pm.
