Thandie Newton has a new, criminal world ahead of her as police-officer-turned-FBI-agent Grace Travis in Season 2 of DirecTV’s original series Rogue, and TVLine has your exclusive first look at the action.

Now a handler, aka the job Newton says her character “resented,” Grace is investigating the shadowy world of corporate espionage in San Francisco when her young operative Sarah (played by Boardwalk Empire‘s Aleksa Palladino) goes missing, forcing Grace back into the undercover life she has renounced.

But first, she and Sarah get to know each other — as you’ll see in this video from the season premiere, which airs Wednesday at 8/7c on DirecTV’s Audience Network. Although Grace is grieving the loss of her son, “She is now free to discover who she is,” says Newton.

Finally, after getting the lowdown on Grace’s personal life, Sarah wants to know what’s “really going on here.” We have a feeling the answer to that question is a season-long mystery.
