Underground Season 2 Harriet Tubman

Underground Season 2 Adds Fringe Fave Jasika Nicole, Casts Aisha Hinds as Harriet Tubman, Promotes 'Ernestine'

Season 2 of WGN America’s Underground will give a less-blurry face to Harriet Tubman, having cast Under the Dome alum Aisha Hinds in the recurring role of the renowned pioneer, who was glimpsed in silhouette at the close of the May finale.

Additionally for the Undergroundacclaimed drama’s sophomore run, the excellent Amirah Vann has been promoted to series regular as Ernestine, while Fringe favorite Jasika Nicole is set to recur as Georgia, an abolitionist with a station along the Underground whose quiet confidence hides secrets of her own.

Also recurring for Season 2 are Jesse Luken (Justified) as Smoke, the fearless second in command of Patty Cannon’s infamous gang, and Michael Trotter as Biographer, an astute observer of people.

Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Aldis Hodge, Christopher Meloni, Alano Miller and Jessica de Gouw will all return as series regulars (as Rosalee, Noah, August, Cato and Elizabeth), while Marc Blucas will continue guest-starring as John Hawkes.

Production on Underground Season 2 begins Aug. 29 in Savannah, Ga., with an eye on an early 2017 premiere date.

    I’m glad for Amirah. She was a rockstar. I couldn’t take my eyes off of her when she was onscreen.

      Yesssssss she is a awesome actress and she bought to life the true role of women on the plantation and the chattle (property role) they held with the master’s…please everyone do some reach on the women and what they all had to endure during slavery beginning on the slave ship. Excellent show can’t wait to see the rest..
