Season 2 missions: "We Must Go Back"


VL had the opportunity to go to the Paris region in an impressive environment Mission Season 2, soon on OCS. A season that looks even thicker and stronger.

In Ivri-sur-Seine, in Studio K, there is a scheduled visit to the VL in the VL Mission season 2. An important plateau that includes the exalted landscape of the shuttle that will bring Mars into the season 1 for rescue missions of the last chance. What they will discover will go beyond what they could imagine. Just like we visited the shooting of this new season.

He'll already talk about what Mission season 2? Henri Deberme, the co-creator and producer of the series tells us: " We are watching our team 5 years later. In 5 years, a lot has happened, starting with Jeanne leaving Mars at the end of season 1. Is she alive or dead? Intuition will give them the feeling that he is still alive and that we have to return to Mars. Milliard Villiam Meier then decides to return a part of the crew to Mars. Season 2 will see that our heroes are returning to the red planet where they experienced the trauma and deliberately singled out the unanswered questions. Everything will destroy it, because once it comes back, everything will not happen as planned. A great discovery will be a very green place, a great forest, a place we do not know whether it's on Mars … or somewhere else. In the second season, we will have the answer to this strange passage discovered in Season 1 and which has led to a place that does not look like anything like Mars. "

To make this season and broadcast it (around June 2019), it took 2 years: " We wanted to wait for the return after the broadcast"Explains Henri Deberme." We were scared to reduce this type of project and take into account our production unforeseen situations. We have been fully elevated from the returns today, we really have confidence in what we do".
A very good form of season 1 abroad and subsequent sales increased the budget of the series (from 1.5 million in the season of 1 to 2 million euros in season 2) with the immediate effect of a slight gap, but important for the logistic time of the shooting.
Season 2 will always have 10 25-minute episodes that alter the mythology of the series and the private lives of characters (one of the lessons learned from critics after the 1st Season): " Nothing has yet decided for season 3, but what is certain is that we know where we are going and we will not wait long to begin writing. There is no doubt that it will begin during Assembly 2, accurate Julien Lacombe, director / author. "We even think about a possible extension of the duration of the episodes in season 3. It is being considered. "

For this new season, time spent preparing for the season will be felt in the story: " Our will in the second season is to surprise the audience. That was a real challenge. If Season 1 is played mostly in a closed session in the shuttle, Season 2 is almost entirely in natural environments, and not necessarily to those expected by the public or the Martian ground as presented and as we saw in Season 1 & # 39; 39 ;, explains J. Lacombe. "Basically, we wanted to build season 2 by emphasizing what we liked in season 1 and going to" hard SF ", ie entering into universes like those of Arthur Clarkeby The Space Odissei 2001) with different worlds, space-time portals, everything in everything that makes me dreaming in a science fiction. "

On the bed … in the shuttle …

We can guess from our meetings that Season 2 will be more about characters and adventures, and less, if not more, to the scientific aspect: " We are moving away from the scientific discourse of what we have written. We continue the mythology that we started to install in the 1st season with this other world, such a lost Eden that would be on Mars. We will explain and open new doors. And we promise you crazy end of the season.

All teams give everything to offer season 2 upgrades compared to the first. If a large part of the original actor returns, not everyone will return to Mars: " We wanted to have a narrative meaning. We did not want people to be deterred just to get them back"Explains Henri Deberme." With a five-year-old cap between two seasons, the characters have changed, love stories have been created between them, and the old trauma will even experience. "
If Helene Vivies, Clement Aubert, Mathias Mlekuz, Arben Bajraktaraj or Giorgia Sinicornni returns, season 2 mission can count on arrival of little news in the crew of the series in character Barbara Probst (together with Clement Aubert in speaker). She will play the role of daughter William Meyer and will make great discoveries about herself and her past during the 2nd Season.

Chris Calcus works on his model of the shuttle that served as the basis for making the big final model

If the shooting of the inside of the shuttle was done in Studio K in the Paris region, he also moved across France, as Julien Lacombe explained: " We want to shoot at amazing places, places that will all look like and create a look. We can find this location in France, as we found with a large cave in the Pyrenees, which is the largest cave accessible to the public or even luxurious bays. We found some in the woods of Dordogne. Our desire is to build something that has a mouth. "

Challenge Mission is, from the narrative point, directed to something interesting: to convey a message about the future of our world. Is that Mission has political speech? Environmental? Probably a little: " We are at a crossroads in terms of the evolution of our species. We know that in the next 100 years things will make things crazy for our civilization. Science fiction must be interested in this. He has to question some things. Will we, at our modest level, do it a bit? I sincerely hope."Concluded Julien Lacombe.
