Better than us is a Russian science fiction series set in the near future, specifically in 2029. The story takes place in a city where androids serve the population in various positions, even replacing humans in some jobs.
Although most people believe they are machines without a soul, they are able to think and feel empathy. An android, Arisa, suddenly begins to behave like a human and sometimes seems even more intelligent.
The drama, created by Andrey Junkovsky for the Russian state network C1R, premiered in Russia on November 23, 2018, and due to the success achieved Netflix decided to buy international distribution rights, making it the first original Russian series of the streaming service.
The first season of Better Than Us is available on the global platform only since Friday, August 16, but users already require a second installment.
In Russia, the second season of this series premiered on July 7, so many believed that Netflix would also arrive very soon, however, it is important to clarify that the entertainment company grouped the episodes of the first and second installments and presented them as a single season of 16 chapters.
So, the correct question would be ” Better than us ” will have a third installment? And the answer is Yes. During the film festival ‘Morning of the Motherland’, held in June this year, Andrey Junkovsky revealed that the script was ready.
Neither the creators of the series nor Netflix have revealed the release date of the second season of “ Better than us, ” but they anticipated that it will be sometime in 2020. If you repeat what happened with the previous ones, it could be released in July next year in Russia and reach the streaming platform in August.
