Beverly Hills, CA: National Geographic’s critically acclaimed scripted/documentary hybrid series MARS returns in November, bringing with it some timely and important social commentary. At its core, MARS 2 poses questions about “exploration versus exploitation” as the human race, now colonizing Mars, is faced with repeating the same mistakes that slowly decimated Earth and sent its inhabitants in search of alternate sustainable planets. In what can only be described as fortuitous timing, Nat Geo presented a panel for the series during its afternoon at the Summer 2018 Television Critics Association tour within 24 hours of breaking news reports that bodies of water were discovered on the red planet.
