12 Questions We Need Answered in 'The Society' Season 2 (PHOTOS)
What exactly happened to the teenagers? Are they in a parallel universe?
We know that they were ostensibly taken on a class trip, only to "return" to a replica of their town, one where they were the only residents. The bus driver, Pfeiffer, who had met with some of the parents the day before, is obviously involved (and a Pied Piper figure), but where were they taken?
Gordie and Bean (a.k.a. the Committee on Going Home) decide they're in a parallel universe due to an unscheduled eclipse, a star being a few degrees off from where it should be, and the lack of satellites. Is that truly the case, or is there another twist coming in Season 2?
Even so, there's more for them to figure out. Why are they the only ones there? Will they ever find a place beyond the seemingly never-ending forest (and the land the expedition found)?
Could there be other people living in that universe?
We haven't seen anyone yet, but that doesn't necessarily mean that won't change depending on how long the series continues and the planned storyline.
Did their parents know exactly what would happen to them?
Or did they just know something would?
As the kids discovered, their parents broke a contract to get rid of a smell in their town. They're assuming they were the price their parents paid for doing that. But did their parents know they'd be taken on that trip and where they'd be taken to before
Can the kids ever return home?
So far, they haven't been able to find any way out of the town and its surrounding forest. Is this their new home for good, or will they be able to find a way back? After all, the bus drivers had to have a way to enter and exit this universe, but is it something they can access even if they do find it?
That may all depend on what exactly is going on with a certain dog.
Is the dog traveling between the worlds, or is there a dog in each?
We thought that Campbell, the town sociopath, killed the dog wandering around the town, but at the end of the season, we returned to the original town, and the dog was there. Could it be Campbell didn't kill the dog and the dog just found the door between the two worlds, or are there two dogs?
Who is the father of Becca's baby?
Becca's best friend, Sam, may be telling everyone he's the biological father of her baby, but even he doesn't know who it really is. She refuses to tell anyone, meaning that will likely cause some drama once that secret comes out (and it's hard to imagine that not happening in Season 2).
Will Campbell, Lexie and Harry actually lead the town?
Or rather, will they lead it the way it needs to be to make sure everyone survives? In the finale, they overthrew Allie and took control. But will they still do what's best for everyone, or will it devolve into "everyone for him or herself"?
Really, the blame can all be put on Campbell, but the other two are far from innocent. Will they stand up to him, despite the leverage he has, or will they be complicit in whatever he does next that will undoubtedly not be in everyone's best interest?
What will happen to Allie and Will now they're prisoners?
Campbell, Lexie, and Harry have done their best to turn everyone against them (though not everyone's on board). But will Allie and Will have to free themselves from their prison to restore order to New Ham, or will they have allies?
Will Luke grow a conscience?
Luke knows that the claims that Allie was trying to rig the election are false, but he's still perpetuating the lie. Will he be able to stand up to his teammates and Campbell when it comes down to it, or will he stay quiet?
Will they farm that land Grizz and the others found?
Grizz led the expedition to explore what's around the town, and they found land they could farm so they don't have to risk starvation. But will that actually come to pass, especially with the new leadership in New Ham?
Who's being punished — the kids or the parents?
Ostensibly, it seems as though the parents are being punished for reneging on their contract, and they had their children taken from them. But the teenagers are the ones living on their own — and dying — and the ones who were taken from their world.
Will we spend more time with the parents?
Scenes with the parents bookended the first season, but will we learn more about what's happening in their world in the second? The finale revisited them and revealed that they're living as though their children are dead. There's a memorial wall for the teenagers, and everyone in the town is wearing a yellow ribbon in remembrance. Will we get to see how they feel about what's happened?

A town without parents may sound like fun, but as the teenagers in The Society on Netflix quickly discovered, the party can only last so long.
The streaming service released the first season of the Lord of the Flies-meets-the-Pied Piper drama series on May 9, and after binging the 10 episodes, we have many lingering questions that leave us grateful the series has been renewed but wanting to see Season 2 ASAP.
'Designated Surivor,' 'Black Mirror' and more are returning this month on the platform.
The series begins with a group of teenagers leaving their town behind for what should have been a normal trip, only to supposedly be brought home that night to an empty town. They soon realize they're not actually home. Throughout the first season, the teenagers figure out how to rule themselves (with some disastrous consequences), fight for leadership and try to figure out how to get home — if they can.
