The mystery crime series “Emergence” about police officer Jo and the mysterious Piper flickered across the screen in season 1 with 13 episodes. Will there be a Emergence season 2 soon?
The story of “Emergence” begins in Southold, Long Islang, with a plane crash and a 10-year-old girl (Alexa Swinton) who lacks any memory. Police officer Jo Evans (Allison Tolman) takes in the girl and names her Piper. Piper and Jo’s daughter Mia (Ashley Aufderheide) become friends. It soon turns out that Piper is no ordinary girl and has telekinetic powers. The series develops an exciting story around artificial intelligence, androids, cybercrime and the eternal struggle between good and evil. Shady characters are after Piper and journalist Benny Gallagher (Owain Yeoman) supports Jo and Piper with his research. Also in the mix is “Scrubs” star Donald Faison as Jo’s ex-husband.

What is the status of Emergence Season 2?
Even though “Emergence” has built up a large fan base, the series lost more and more viewers and is one of the ABC (Stumptown Season 2, A Million Little Things Season 5, The Good Doctor Season 6) series with the worst ratings. In addition, there were aggravating conditions. Due to the coronavirus, many shooting dates had to be paused and releases postponed. As a result, many production companies concentrated on “safe numbers” – so it’s no wonder that “Emergence” was canceled after only one season.
What are the alternative sci-fi stories for Emergence season 2?
Emergence season 2 probably won’t happen. However, androids and artificial intelligences can be seen in “Westworld,” “Star Trek,” “Humans,” “Battlestar Galactica” and the series based on it, “Caprica.”
If you prefer movies, you can let your imagination run wild with “A.I. – Artificial Intelligence,” “I, Robot,” “Ex Machina,” “Prometheus” and “Alien: Covenant,” “Ghost in the Shell” and the famous “Terminator.
