It hasn’t been too long since Season 1 of Armando Iannucci‘s new comedy, Avenue 5, wrapped. The series, which stars Hugh Laurie, Josh Gad, Lenora Crichlow, and Suzy Nakamura, spent its first season exploring the hilarious results of a luxury space-bound cruise ship suddenly veering off course and likely not getting back to Earth for decades rather than weeks.


Just a few weeks after the March 15 season finale, Iannucci offered updates on the forthcoming second season of Avenue 5 in the latest installment of The Hollywood Reporter‘s “How I’m Living Now” series. After sharing some news on how he is faring as Hollywood, like the rest of the world, has temporarily shutdown amidst the global coronavirus pandemic, Iannucci addressed what coming up next. The biggest to-do? Preparing Avenue 5 Season 2, which is still in the early stages of pre-production. The series creator shared.

While Iannucci refrained from sharing any new and specific teases about what’s to come on Avenue 5, his insights both big and small are pretty reassuring. It’s unclear what kind of production timeline Avenue 5 is currently working on, but it’s likely Season 2 will be delayed and an estimate on when the new season will premiere will depend on when Hollywood as a whole gets back into production mode.
