Debris came to NBC in 2021 to deliver a new kind of sci-fi series that has spent twelve episodes so far building layer upon layer of mystery and mythology, and the Season 1 finale is nearly here. Created by former Fringe executive producer and showrunner Joel Wyman and starring Jonathan Tucker and Riann Steele, the show is unlike anything else on network television. Fortunately, the full first season so far is available streaming on more than one platform, and Wyman opened up about the benefits of binge-watching, as well as what's coming in the finale.
Joel Wyman spoke with CinemaBlend ahead of the Season 1 finale that will air on May 24, and he shared his thoughts on Debris as a binge-watch option:
The first twelve episode of Debris Season 1 are available streaming now on NBCU's streaming service Peacock as well as Hulu, and a binge-watch could work as a refresher for fans who have been watching all along and want to brush up on some of the finer points as well as newcomers who haven't checked out the series just yet. It's also worth noting that watching the episodes streaming means hearing some mysterious transmissions that play over the closing credits, which can't be heard in the NBC broadcast.
Whether those transmissions are leading to something in the Season 1 finale remains to be seen, but they add another intriguing wrinkle to the mysteries of the first season so far. That said, the Debris creator went on to explain that the finale isn't going to be just an hour of posing new questions and leaving fans hanging without any answers. Joel Wyman previewed:
There is no shortage of questions heading into the finale, so fans can only speculate about what kinds of answers are on the way to wrap the first season and set up what's to come in the potential second season. At the time of writing, Debris has not yet been renewed for Season 2, so there was no way of knowing ahead of the production of the finale whether or not the show would continue afterward. Joel Wyman settled the question of whether or not the final episode of Season 1 was written to serve as a series finale just in case, saying:
Debris isn't going to close the story with nowhere to go next when the final credits roll on Season 1, and Joel Wyman having a plan for five seasons bodes well for what the future of the show could be. After all, Fringe ran for five seasons before coming to an end in 2013, and that show has a loyal following to this day that knows how well careful planning can serve a series. Take a look at the promo for the finale for a glimpse of what's to come:
