Set in Iceland, the Sci-Fi thriller series Katla features the town of Vik after it gets abandoned due to the actively erupting subglacial volcano in it. As the show progresses, several presumably dead characters come back to life in puzzling ways. The plot is full of mysterious jaw-dropping scenarios. Each episode is exciting and thrilling and leaves fans wanting more. Directed by Baltasar Kormakur and Sigurjon Kjartansson, this mind-boggling series currently has only one season. Recently, rumors of a second season releasing soon have been on the rise. Is this true? Should fans be expecting to see a new season hit their screens before the end of this year? Keep on reading to find out the latest information about Katla Season 2.
Katla Season 2 Renewal and Release Date
Katla Season 1 made its debut on Netflix in June 2021. However, no official announcements of the series renewal for a second season have been made. This is probably because Katla is a hidden gem that is yet to be discovered by lots of people. Netflix will closely monitor views and ratings on the series for a few months to decide whether they should give the green signal for Season 2.
We will probably hear news of an official announcement by August 2021. Till then, we can only keep our fingers crossed and pray that Katla doesn’t turn out to be a limited one-season series.
If the series does get green-lit for a second season, it may air in June 2022. However, it could also take longer and air in early 2023.
Katla Season 2 Cast
killed off several characters in Season 1, and Season 2 may get a completely new cast. However, some main protagonists of the series may return in the next season, including
Guorun Eyfjoro– Grima- The main character is looking for her sister Asa after the two get separated due to the volcanic explosion. They get reunited only to find out that Asa is a changeling who must now kill herself.
Ingvar Sigurosson– Tor- Grima’s father.

In Season One, we saw mysterious ash-covered people who had previously died returning to life as changelings. These changelings were obviously not humans but just duplicates. They were created by meteorite fragments bringing people’s thoughts and memories to life. The changelings included Grima’s sister Asa and Darri’s son Mikael. His parents drowned the former committed suicide, and the latter once their respective families realized the truth about their existence. Towards the end, a changeling version of Grima too appears. However, the real Grima and the changeling play a game of Russian Roulette which kills the latter. The season ended at a major cliffhanger with the earth groaning and several ash-covered changelings rising and heading towards Vik.
Season 2 will tell us more about this army of changelings. What disaster will they bring for the town? Will their families kill them too after they discover the truth. Or will Vik be taken over and ruled by humanoid changelings instead of real-life people?
We will also learn more about how and why these creatures came into existence in Season 2.
We will get a trailer for Katla Season 2 once the series is renewed and begins filming. Thus, don’t expect a trailer anytime before early 2022.
