Underground Season 2

Underground: Harriet Tubman, Others 'Rise Up' in Season 2 Character Posters

WGN America has released character-centric posters pegged to the return of Underground, as the slavery/escape thriller is honored Thursday in Atlanta at the fifth annual aTVfest, presented by SCAD, with the prestigious Spotlight Cast Award.

Premiering Wednesday, March 8, Season 2 is set in the aftermath of the Macon 7’s daring attempt to stage the greatest escape in history, with a divided America on the brink of civil war. Joining returning series regulars Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Aldis Hodge, Jessica de Gouw, Alano Miller, Christopher Meloni and Amirah Vann are Aisha Hinds (Under the Dome) as Harriet Tubman, Jasika Nicole (Fringe) as secretive abolitionist Georgia and DeWanda Wise (Shots Fired) as preacher’s daughter Clara.
