During Life Is Strange Release
During an interview with Polygon during E3 2015, when asked ifLife Is Strange would receive a second season, producer, Luc Baghadoust expressed an interest in continuing the episodic series with a "second season". “We would love to have the opportunity to do another season,” Baghadoust said.
“We’re working so hard to finish Episodes 4 and 5. It’s a lot of work. It’s a lot of stress. We have a limit of time to put out each episode. We want to stick to the eight week release between each episode as much as we can.” Whether or not the series would continue onward with a second season was not dependent on the ending of the "first season", as the story of Max Caulfield and Chloe Price was "narratively complete".
Co-game director and art director Michel Koch stated that if a second season did come about, it would feature a new cast, similar to that of series like True Detective and American Horror Story. “We can really go with other characters, other locations, but still keep the identity of the game, the themes of the game,” he said.

February 2017, rumors began to circulate that DONTNOD Entertainment was working on a second season of Life Is Strange. The information was taken from a German website, pcgames.de, that speculated that sectioned off parts of the DONTNOD Entertainment offices during a tour suggested that other projects besides VAMPYR were being worked on.
May 18, DONTNOD Entertainment officially announced that the season season of Life Is Strange was under development on their official twitter, tumbleblog and the official Square Enix blog. The "second season" has been in production under the "Life Is Strange Team" since before the release of the Limited Edition physical release of the game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on January 19, 2016.
A month later, rumors of "prequel to Life Is Strange" were circulated across major gaming news sites. Life Is Strange publisher, Square Enix, later clarified that the second season was unrelated to the prequel, being developed by Deck Nine Games, and was one of two projects related to the Life Is Strange licence that were under development.
