Berlin – 31 May 2021 -- More ominous, thrilling and mysterious: After the surprising ending of season 1, the new episodes of Biohackers start with a blackout: Months after her abduction, medical student Mia (Luna Wedler) regains consciousness without any recollection of the latest events. What happened? 

In the second season Mia has to solve this big secret on which her life depends. Her former opponent, bio-scientist Prof. Dr. Lorenz (Jessica Schwarz), of all people, seems to know more and apparently is the only one who can help Mia. But can the two women trust each other after everything that happened? The second season of Biohackers, produced by Claussen+Putz, starts on July 9, with six new episodes, worldwide and exclusively on Netflix. In addition to the leading actresses Luna Wedler and Jessica Schwarz, all other popular cast members are back for season 2: Benno Fürmann, Caro Cult, Adrian Julius Tillmann,  Jing Xiang, Sebastian Jakob Doppelbauer and Thomas Prenn. For the first time, Thomas Kretschmann appears in Biohackers.

Showrunner, director, head writer and producer Christian Ditter: “The second season of Biohackers will be quite fast-paced and offers a more serious, grown-up look. We are very happy about the great reception of season 1 by the audience and about the fact that we now have the chance to answer open questions. Our intention is to surprise viewers with season 2. We are looking forward to the release on Netflix.”

Jakob Claussen from Claussen+Putz Filmproduktion adds: “Biohackers is a project that was very special to us. The production was challenging, but great fun. We are really happy about the fantastic cast and the fact that we were able to win over a genuine Hollywood star with Thomas Kretschmann. Fans will also love season 2.”


About Biohackers Season 2: After being abducted, Mia finds herself with no recollection of what happened since. But when she discovers a message she has written to her future-self, she comes to understand that her life is in imminent danger if she doesn’t solve the mystery of her disappearance. In order to do so, she has to team up with the woman she trusts the least, Prof Lorenz.
