Underground Season 2: Premiere Date, 'Notorious' Harriet Tubman Trailer

WGN America has set a premiere date for Season 2 of Underground — Wednesday, March 8, at 10/9c — and in turn released a teaser trailer plus a new cast photo.

The acclaimed drama’s 10-episode sophomore run is set in the aftermath of the Macon 7’s daring escape attempt, following their arrowing journey to freedom with legendary abolitionist Harriet Tubman — glimpsed at the close of the Season 1 finale, and now played by Under the Dome‘s Aisha Hinds — blazing the trail.

For Season 2, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Aldis Hodge, Amirah Vann (who gave one of TVLine’s Best Performances of 2016), Christopher Meloni, Alano Miller and Jessica de Gouw return as series regulars (playing Rosalee, Noah, Ernestine, August, Cato and Elizabeth), while Marc Blucas will continue guest-starring as John Hawkes.

In addition to Hinds, recurring players include Jasika Nicole (Fringe) as Georgia, an abolitionist with a station along the Underground; Jesse Luken (Justified) as Smoke, the fearless second-in-command of the Patty Cannon gang; and Michael Trotter as Biographer, an astute observer of people. Additionally, series EP John Legend will guest-star as abolitionist Frederick Douglass.
