Considering the same, check out the potential cast of the season below:

The Rig Season 2: Plot

In Season 1, we saw a Scottish oil rig in the North Sea is enveloped in an unnatural fog that cuts them off from outside communications. Spores found in the fog cause infected crew members to experience behavioural changes. After examining the spores, a scientist onboard the oil rig suspects that an ancient parasite has been unleashed from the ocean floor.

At the moment, there is no information about the plotline of Season 2. It is better to speculate that the upcoming season will pick up from where it was left off.

The Rig Season 2: Release Date

On 22 February 2023, Amazon renewed the series for a second season. However, the filming details are still unknown, which is why we cannot provide the release date of the Season 2.
