Archive 81 has been destroyed, but here is the content of part 2

Beneath all its brooding horror and found footage, Storage 81 is a pure no-nonsense thriller from Netflix. Following archivist Dan Turner (Mamoudou Athie), called to restore a videotape collection warped by a fire at the mysterious Visser apartment building in 1994, the mystery has not ceased to mount since every angle.

But that wasn’t enough for Netflix, who announced on Thursday that it was canceling the show after just one season. Although Netflix rarely reports any kind of viewership for its shows, Storage 81 reached number two in the top 10 streaming sites list and stayed there for three weeks (and even reached number one in other countries’ top 10).

Final Storage 81 solved many of its central mysteries in the season finale (something not all mystery box shows are willing to do). But the series isn’t simply aiming for a neat ending. Showrunner Rebecca Sonnenshine said she intentionally left some juice in the tank for season 2. Here’s what Sonnenshine plans to do about two of the show’s biggest mysteries:

[Ed. note: This post contains spoilers for the end of season 1 of Archive 81.]

What happened in Visser

After hours of replaying Melody’s (Dina Shihabi) tapes, Dan discovers that what’s happening at Visser is the usual stuff of an old cult – but they’re really a cult. based on real magic. The Vos Association is trying to free the demon Kalego from a statue that a Baldung hunter trapped him in around the 1300s.

Virgil (Martin Donovan), the mysterious tech executive who hired Dan to restore the tapes, believes Melody burned Visser and killed his brother Samuel (Evan Jonigkeit). But as the tape reveals, Melody frees teenage Jess (Ariana Neal) from being sacrificed, but is unable to stop the ritual altogether. The ritual was the cause of the fire, incinerating Visser and obscuring the fact that the leader of Melody and Vos, Samuel, was sent to Kalego’s “Other World”.

While that’s one mystery to be solved, there are other things that loom large – such as, what happened at Dan’s house when he was a child, burned down his house, and killed his family. he. While Dan found out her father knew Melody and some of the heck going on at Visser, Sonnenshine has confirmed that she plans to reveal more fully the story behind the house fire in a potential season 2.

“There are a lot of little easter eggs or little things like that, which, if you’re like, ‘I wonder if that’s part of the mythology and will be explored further?’ And, yes,” Sonnenshine told Entertainment Weekly earlier this year. “Some things are really not included in the season.”

After going into the Otherworld to rescue Melody, Dan is separated from her and wakes up to find himself in an apartment…in 1990s New York, a reflection of the Two Towers and all. But if you’re thinking there might still be some otherworldly scourge playing Dan’s cognitive trick, Sonnenshine assures you there isn’t.

“I can tell you he’s in the ’90s,” the showrunner told Variety of the season’s final shot. “He was in the real 90s, and the clue to that was that it didn’t have particles floating around there. He’s in 1994. And the question we’re asking is, we’ve seen people disappear into Other Worlds at different times, right?

“It means fewer holes, less pokes, less – less entry and exit points. And that people got mixed up in there trying to get out, and might not have gotten out through the right door. “

With The Otherworldly kicking people out at various times, Sonnenshine says that means Samuel “remains part of the story.” If Netflix refreshes them for a second season, Samuel and Virgil’s story will be a much bigger part.

“It’s at the top of our list for season 2, because we didn’t finish it, but I can also tell that everyone on the show is doing something that they think is right,” Sonnenshine told EW.

If the show is renewed, there will certainly be more material: The podcast on which the show is based has aired for three seasons. Sonnenshine insists that when it happens, there will be a lot of magical madness in a variety of media.

“We certainly don’t give up [the found footage aspect]. There are all sorts of ways when you think, oh, how is he going to communicate with them? ‘ Sonnenshine told Variety. “It won’t be the same device, but it will be a different window with a similar device. […] We are ready to go, if we are very lucky to get season 2 we have some really interesting stories to tell. ”
