“Next ss 2”: release date, announcement
After the release of the first 2 episodes, the creators of the TV series “Next” unexpectedly announced the closure of the project. This decision was influenced by the low views of the episodes, and the situation with the coronavirus pandemic, which significantly increased the production costs of the season. The second season is not worth waiting for.
For many years Paul LeBlanc worked for a prestigious company and was its founder along with his brother Ted. But later, for unknown reasons, Ted expelled Paul from the board of directors. No matter how journalists try to find out the reason for this act, everything is in vain. Having adapted to life, Paul began teaching at the university, retaining his previous income.
At the same time, Shea Salazar, a police detective, receives a message about the death of a person close to her. Trying to figure out what happened, she goes to LeBlanc, whose number was with the murdered and to whom he was going on the day of death. After learning more about the crime, Paul assumes that an intellectual mind is involved, which are designed by employees of his former company.
But before LeBlanc can investigate with Salazar, he decides to meet with his daughter Abby. The girl does not understand the reason for such an impulse, because she never had a close connection with her father. All his life Paul behaved horribly towards her and towards her mother. A man is a terrible egoist who was not interested in anything, only research and his own person.
Together with Shea, Paul goes to his former company, puts on a real show there, trying to remove the program “Next”, which is currently being worked on by hundreds of people. As a result, the program cheats by not deleting the data. Ted is furious and demands that Paul get out, and Shea witnesses the real reason for Paul’s departure from the company.
The man begins to hallucinate. Hence the chance meeting with his daughter – there is a high risk that the disease was transmitted to her, which is very worrisome for LeBlanc. Deciding to further investigate the crime alone, Shea decides to leave. But she still does not know how many times she will have to meet with an insane old man, whose visions torment him more and more often.
At this time, things are not calm at Shea’s home. Her son increasingly communicates with the intellectual mind through Internet speakers. Instead of answering the boy’s questions, the mind asks its own questions, and later even tries to help him solve the problem with the boys who bully him. Only the way for this is chosen is not entirely legal…
