As a rule, the amount of the viewing audience is the key factor capable of affecting the decision on renewal or cancelation of the series. Yet in case with Now Apocalypse, we don't think that STARZ would rely on such a factor. Now Apocalypse Season 1 premiere has garnered 0.147 million viewers with a 0.04 key demo rating among adults (P18-49), while a finale has drawn only 64,000 viewers. No doubt, such results can't be described as favorable, yet given the specific of the target audience, the numbers look acceptable.
In our opinion, the only thing, which might affect the decision by STARZ is the reception, which the 1st season of Now Apocalypse has received from critics and viewers. On Rotten Tomatoes, Now Apocalypse Season 1 holds a score of 6.42/10 and a 77% approval rating from critics, while the viewers have rated the debut season of the comedy series at 3.7/5 and have given a 72% rating. On Metacritic, the statistics were a bit lower, 64/100 and 5.3/10, among critics/viewers, respectively. Finally, on IMDb, Now Apocalypse has a rating of 6.2/10 based on over 1,700 votes, the figure, which looks above average.
Summing up, despite the weak viewership, Now Apocalypse has received mostly positive reviews in its debut season. Therefore, we are inclined to believe that Now Apocalypse has a good chance to be renewed for Season 2. Anyway, we will have to wait for the official announcement from STARZ. So guys, stay tuned for updates.
Now Apocalypse Season 2 Release Date
As mentioned above, Now Apocalypse is yet to be renewed for another season. At least, STARZ has yet to announce neither renewal nor cancelation of the series. Therefore, in the best case scenario, we should expect Now Apocalypse Season 2 not earlier than the next spring, in March 2020, given the current schedule of the series.
Nonetheless, all the data provided above on the subject of Now Apocalypse Season 2 is nothing but our forecast. We are tracking down all the official data which arrive from STARZ. As soon as the network announces the renewal or sets a specific release date for a sophomore season, we will update this page. We will keep you informed.
