WATCH: Trailer sails in for Avenue Five season 2!

Yes! Avenue Five is back next month! I was starting to think we’d lost this show to that damned virus!

Starring Hugh Laurie as Captain Ryan Clark whose luxury space liner, Avenue Five, was lost in space in season one with the journey home set to take years and this season things are just getting worse.

The show is [very] darkly hilarious and Laurie leads a cast on the top of their game, including Lenora Crichlow, Zach Woods and Josh Gad. The show is really something to behold and I cannot wait to get into the second sailing of this hilarious and pitch black show.

In the future, traveling through space is no longer a fantasy and the solar system has become a holiday destination. The exclusive space cruiser Avenue 5 takes its course in the hands of confident and suave captain Ryan Clark (Hugh Laurie). But a sudden technical failure will test the skill of the captain and his crew to keep the passengers – and themselves – calm.

Avenue Five in back on October 10th

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
