Chernobyl HBO: Will there be a second season of Chernobyl? Is there more to the doc?

Chernobyl is a mini-series created by screenwriter Craig Mazin for HBO and Sky, dramatising the events of the nuclear power plant explosion. Sky has also created another series alongside it called The Real Chernobyl, which uses real footage and interviews to tell the story. Both are available to watch on Now TV but fans are keen to know if there will be any more shows.

Will there be a second season of Chernobyl?

HBO and Sky mini-series Chernobyl became the highest rated series on IMDb after it was shown in its entirety.

Created by screenwriter Craig Mazin, the show dramatised the events that happened and the people involved in the lead-up and aftermath of the nuclear explosion.

The five-part mini-series began airing on Sky and HBO last month, with its finale taking place on Tuesday, June 4.

After the show finished airing, viewers were keen to know whether there would be any more of the drama in a second series.


Creator Craig Mazin was quick to say that there wouldn’t be another series of the historical drama.

Taking to Twitter, he said: “All due respect to Decider, but the definitive answer to the headline’s question “Will There Be A Season 2 of Chernobyl?” is “No.”

For fans desperate to know more about what happened and how the mini-series was created, Mazin has created a podcast to go alongside it.

Eager fans can listen to the six-part podcast on Apple to hear Mazin’s insights.


Is there more to the documentary series?

The Real Chernobyl is a Sky documentary looking at the tragedy behind the popular mini-series.

The series interviews people in Russia and Ukraine, which was both then the USSR, to interview them about their role in dealing with the disaster.

After the HBO and Sky mini-series aired, it led to an unprecedented level of interest in the Chernobyl disaster.

As a result, the documentary show was created to show real footage of the disaster and interview the survivors.


The Real Chernobyl covers a much larger time scale, covering from the explosion right up until present day Pripyat.

The show is a 50-minute, one-off special so there are no more plans for any more to be made.

If Sky makes any further announcements about the future of the documentary series, will update this article.

The next show on the subject of Chernobyl has been commissioned by Russian state channel NTV, which will be their own depiction of events.

However, it will be a completely different angle, following a conspiracy theory that a CIA agent was dispatched to Pripyat at the time.

Chernobyl and The Real Chernobyl are currently available to watch on Now TV
