Earth 2 is an American science fiction television series of the dystopic future subgenre. It was created by Michael Duggan, Carol Flint, Mark Levin and Billy Ray and was produced by Amblin Entertainment and Universal Television. It aired on NBC for a single season from November, 1994 to June, 1995, spanning a total of twenty-two episodes.

In the distant future, the surface of the Earth has been largely destroyed, and mankind lives in space stations orbiting the planet. A group of space colonists, led by Devon Adair (Debrah Farentino) and John Danzinger (Clancy Brown), are sent to a far off planet to prepare it for colonization by the surviving population of Earth. But a mishap sends them careening off-course, crash landing thousands of miles from the proper camp site. Earth 2 follows the band of colonists as they traverse the planet, encountering dangerous aliens and other humans who view them with distrust and suspicion. By tackling issues like ecology and colonization, Earth 2 engages important ideas and themes in an entertaining fashion.
