WGN America’s lauded drama ‘Underground’ sets its eyes on a return in 2017.
Season 2 of the period drama promises to feature more action, twists, and guest stars, including the show’s executive producer John Legend who will play the role of abolitionist Frederick Douglas.
In its inaugural season finale, we learned the imperfect fate of the series central characters.
After a staged robbery, Noah was seized back into captivity, while Rosalee, Boo, and Cato escaped. Apart from the Macon 7, the queen of cunning, Ernestine was sold after disguising Tom Macon’s death as a suicide. The curtains close as a renewed Rosalee befriends Harriet Tubman.
What does season 2 have in store? Mosey below to see the ‘Underground’ teaser.
Returning for its sophomore year, ‘Underground’ will focus on the remaining Macon 7 and their unrelenting battle to reach the peaceful valleys of freedom, while America is on the cusp of a civil war. Season 2 will also introduce Aisha Hinds in the recurring role of Tubman.
While the series is filled with compelling storylines, we’re most eager to see the origins of Cato and how Ernestine will escape after being split from her youngest son.
‘Underground’ will debut Wednesday, March 8th on WGN America.
