Floor Is Lava Season 2 - Current Updates on Release Date, Cast, and Plot

Netflix premiered “Floor is Lava,” a seemingly stupid gameshow that, uncannily and yet appropriately, established an instant hit with its house-bound audience just a few months into the Covid-19 outbreak. Teams of three compete in an obstacle course simulating a Dali-meets-Tim Burton-esque room filled with furniture and décor pieces floating in “lava,” according to the show, which is two parts “American Ninja Warrior” and three parts childhood memory.

The objective is to leap, climb, flop, swing, or flail from one object to the next while avoiding falling into the pit of bright red bubbling lava on the other side of the area.

The show’s innovative, absurdist reworking of a game that the pre-and early-internet generation grew up playing in their own homes contributes to the show’s appeal (the same nostalgic appeal that made “True American” from “New Girl” so comically familiar, despite the fact that its rules were never fully explained).

Rutledge Wood (“Top Gear the USA,” “Southern and Hungry”), an Alabama native whose improv talents, ability to banter, and willingness to lean into a few Dad Jokes made him instant popularity with viewers, is an even bigger part of the show’s success. It’s a show that’s both family-friendly and addictive, and unlike other obstacle course gameshows (think “American Ninja Warrior”), it doesn’t need players to practice in their own Cross Fit studios all year.

When can the series’ legions of fans expect a Season 2 now that Season 1 has concluded?

Season 2 premiere date for “Floor is Lava”

Netflix executives knew it was a no-brainer to renew “Floor is Lava” for a second season, and while no specific release date has been set, Variety claims that “the series will go into production later this summer and return in 2022.”

Season 1 has ten episodes, and Season 2 is expected to have ten episodes as well. But how does an unscripted series get started, and when will Season 2 air?

“Do you have a lot of zeal for winning?” The phone rang, and I answered it. “Are you ready to defy the odds and race through an obstacle course filled with booby traps? Are you prepared to demonstrate your competitive edge in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity?” Contestants will be paid $250 for “two filming days,” according to the casting call, which closed on June 14th.

Season 2 might be mostly finished by early 2022, assuming each episode takes two days to film (and at least a handful more to edit and combine the finished result). However, it’s also possible that the powers that be will view summer — when the bulk of children are out of school — as a more practical time of year to kick off the show’s sophomore season. Fans will have to wait and wonder for the time being.

Season 2 rooms: “Floor is Lava”

The creative design teams behind “Floor is Lava’s” obstacle course “rooms” attribute a large part to the game’s success. Season 1 presented contestants with a dizzying selection of bizarre interiors, including basements, bedrooms, kitchens, studies, and planetariums, none of which resembled the ones you would have played in as a kid.

Those who tuned in to Netflix’s global fan event, Tudum, we’re treated to a brand new set, which Wood compared to director Mike Flanagan’s “The Haunting of Hill House.” Although the creators haven’t given much away about Season 2’s room design, fans who tuned in to Netflix’s global fan event, Tudum, we’re treated to a brand new set, which Wood compared to director Mike Flanagan’s “The Haunting of Hill House.” If Tudum’s eerie set is any indication of what fans can expect from Season 2, the show’s themes will be further curated.

Is a trailer for “Floor is Lava” Season 2 available?

A trailer for the second season of “Floor is Lava” has yet to be released on Netflix. That doesn’t rule out the possibility of more humorous, molten lava content and cash awards for followers. The streaming service put together and published a “Best of” video this summer, in which Season 1 finalist were given “Oddly Specific Awards” and replays of their most infamous moments were shown.

The video’s awards include (but are not limited to) “Most Cinematic Death,” “Best Comedic Timing by a Lava Blob,” “Best Accidental Twerk,” and “Best Weight-Based Chandelier Argument,” — an award that would be difficult to justify in almost any other television program ever created, but that fits perfectly in the context of “Floor is Lava.”

While the highly anticipated Season 2 trailer may still be a ways off, the very serious and internationally acclaimed awards show (via YouTube) is keeping the series’ frantic energy alive in the meantime.
