College freshman Mia enrols in Freiburg University's prestigious medical school. Her interest in revolutionary biohacking-technology is not only limited to scientific interest: Her goal is to gain the trust of star lecturer Prof. Tanja Lorenz. Both women are connected by a dark secret. To shed light on the mysterious death of her brother, Mia enters a dangerous world of illegal genetic experiences. When she meets genius biologist Jasper and his brooding roommate Niklas, she is forced to decide between her principles and her feelings, between avenging her family and protecting her new friends.
After the surprising ending of season 1, the new episodes of Biohackers start with a blackout: Months after her abduction, medical student Mia (Luna Wedler) regains consciousness without any recollection of the latest events. What happened? In the second season Mia has to solve this big secret on which her life depends. Her former opponent, bio-scientist Prof. Dr. Lorenz (Jessica Schwarz), of all people, seems to know more and apparently is the only one who can help Mia. But can the two women trust each other after everything that happened?
