As another new fall season rounds the corner, excited viewers and fans are now looking forward as to what the upcoming season of “Resurrection” holds in store. Read on to learn more about the show’s second season.
When we last left “Resurrection” in its season finale, Jacob Langston (Landon Gimenez) and Agent Marty Bellamy (Omar Epps) tried to flee Arcadia. However, they were stopped in their tracks by several black vans and a helicopter was on its way towards them and the town. As Jacob clung on to Agent Bellamy, he accidentally pulled down Bellamy’s neck collar, revealing a crescent shaped birthmark on his neck. Earlier, the Langstons housed the Thompsons, a family of three, who claimed that they were looking for their young son who had died in the flood. They also told Henry (Kurtwood Smith) and Lucille (Frances Fisher) Langston that the identifier for their son would be a crescent-shaped birthmark on his neck, just like the one Bellamy has.
According to TV Line, Michelle Fazekas, one of the showrunners, says that the show will begin one week after the events of the finale. The premiere episode will reveal whether Bellamy is Thompson’s son, Robert, and if so, if he is indeed one of the Returned.
In the first season, Bellamy went all out to help the Arcadians and the Returned, going as far as trying to get Jacob out of Arcadia, as his uncle, Sheriff Fred Langston (Matt Craven), was planning on getting rid of the Returned. This, of course, will have consequences, and Bellamy will face that aftermath with regards to his job.
Another family reunion is headed its way to the Langston family, with the reappearance of Margaret Langston, the mother of Sheriff Fred and Henry. She will be portrayed by Irish actress Michelle Fairley, who is best known for her role as Catelyn Stark in the HBO series “Game of Thrones.”
This is said to have a “profound impact” on the Sheriff, who is at an extremely low point. Prior to this, his Returned wife Barbara left him, and his daughter Maggie (Devin Kelley) was arrested for disobeying the instructions of one of the sergeants who were ordered to quarantine the Returned and Arcadia.
It was also revealed by Fazekas and Tara Butters that they will be using the second season to explore more depth in the secondary characters of the show and how the reappearance of their loved ones has affected them.
“Resurrection” Season 2 is said to be 13 episodes long, longer than its freshman season which ran for eight episodes.
And that’s the latest on “Resurrection” Season 2. For more news and updates, including spoilers and recaps, on “Resurrection” and other television shows, keep following Movie News Guide (MNG).
