DESCRIPTION:
(from National Geographic Channel's press release, October 2018) The prospect of Mars has never been more palpable. The idea once was considered science fiction, but in the blink of an eye, we'll be there. Season 2 of National Geographic's acclaimed series MARS - dubbed impressive, inspiring and scientifically honest by critics - returns Monday, November 12, at 9/8c, with a six-episode arc continuing with last season's unique hybrid format: alternating scripted and documentary sequences to predict what life will be like on the Red Planet forecasted by what's happening today on Earth. MARS has a special simulcast premiere on Nat Geo Mundo. National Geographic partners again with Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, Michael Rosenberg and Justin Wilkes of Imagine Entertainment, as well as executive producers Jon Kamen and Tommy Turtle of RadicalMedia to envision what might happen when Earthlings become the planet's first Martians. This season on MARS, the story delves into the boundaries between science and industry on an isolated, unforgiving frontier. Throughout history, there's been a constant tug of war between human motivations and interests with profitability on one end of the spectrum and exploration on the other. When becoming interplanetary, can humans break the chain, or are they doomed to repeat the same mistakes in this new world? MARS picks up five years after the conclusion of Season 1, following the successful maiden mission to the Red Planet when the original International Mars Science Foundation (IMSF) crew struggled to safely land on and create an initial settlement. It's now the year 2042, and IMSF has established a fully-fledged colony, Olympus Town, but they cannot finance the Mars expedition alone. Doors of opportunity have swung wide open to the private sector, but tensions arise among original mission-driven scientists and miners sent by the for-profit corporation, Lukrum Industries, which create a new world of challenges for everyone on the Red Planet.
