Just before the season one finale, Apple renewed "The Mosquito Coast" for a second season on Apple TV+.
"The Mosquito Coast" is a film about an inventor and his family fleeing from the United States government. On the 40th anniversary of the book that inspired the series, a seven-episode first season was made.
"'The Mosquito Coast' has captivated audiences all over the world, not just for its adrenaline-fueled action and adventure, but also for the intriguing family story and riveting performances at its heart," Apple's head of programming, Matt Cherniss, said. "We can't wait to see what the Fox family does next and for fans to keep having a good time."
The ultimate question of the show, why square measure on the run, leaves an excessive amount of unknown for viewers to worry concerning the characters' problems. The report appears on the heels of the season one finale premiering on a weekday. Apple originally referred to the show as a "limited series," though 'it's moving to a second season.
Apple TV+'s The Mosquito Coast has been picked up for a second season.
The series begins before Paul Theroux's famous 1981 novel, Allie Fox, an infatuated, idealistic inventor on the run from the US government who relocates his family to Mexico. Neil Cross conceived, and executive produced The Mosquito Coast, which stars Theroux's nephew, Justin Theroux, Melissa George, Logan Polish, and Gabriel Bateman.
The Season 1 finale of the seven-episode series is this Friday, June 4.
The novel, which turns forty this year, was previously adapted into a 1986 Peter Weir-directed film starring Harrison Ford, Watercourse Phoenix, Helen of Troy Mirren, and Martha Plimpton, which received two Golden Globe nominations.
Despite the novel's "own finite conclusion," Justin Theroux said at Deadline's TV Contenders that "it's still sort of TBD for Neil [Cross] in what areas we want to start to play in if we're lucky enough to get the following season, and a third and fourth."
