Star Jennette McCurdy announced the news on Wednesday.
“The quarantine is not yet over… Season 2 of #Between confirmed for 2016,” the “iCarly” alum tweeted. The show’s official Twitter page retweeted the news.
The Canadian outbreak thriller will return next year with six new, hourlong episodes.
The show is set in the small town of Pretty Lake, where everyone over age 21 is being killed off by a strange outbreak, and the rest of the population is under quarantine.
“Between” is the streaming service’s first Canadian original and its first series to air episodically on a weekly basis. The show is also broadcast weekly on Rogers Broadcasting’s City stations and the Canadian SVOD service Shomi. Although it’s available on Netflix in other countries, Netflix Canada is streaming “Between” with a year’s delay.
“Between” was created by Michael McGowan and executive produced by Don Carmody and McGowan, in association with Elevation Pictures, as well as David Cormican and Naveen Prasad.
