Watch the Season 2 trailer…
Agent Elizabeth Keen’s life was turned upside down when fugitive Red offered to share his extensive knowledge of the World’s Most Wanted with the FBI, on the condition he work exclusively with profiler Liz. Together, they tracked down a host of unsavoury figures, discovering along the way that Liz’s husband Tom was in fact a spy on a mission to kill her.
Despite not knowing the reason behind Red’s obsession with her, Liz finds the taste of adventure rather moreish as she goes deeper into the criminal world in this second offering. Plus, with Tom’s taunt that her father is very much alive pressing on her mind, not to mention the threat of revenge from the tricksy Berlin (Peter Stormare), the new run promises to be one hell of a ride. Season two kicks off a few months after the carnage caused by Berlin, with Red trying to figure out how to take out his deadliest enemy alongside managing a new threat from an elusive figure known as Lord Baltimore.
There is a new addition to the task force team, too, with Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad) making a guest appearance as data analyst Rowan Mills, while Weeds’ star Mary-Louise Parker shines a light on Red’s true character as Naomi Hyland, a formidable woman with a dark secret and a curious connection to the ex-con. If that wasn’t enough to make Red sweat, Mozhan Marnò (House of Cards) joins the cast as a former Mossad agent and incredibly intuitive spy.
