If the idea of angels among us comes as a comfort, then you haven’t been watching Syfy’s Dominion.

Don’t worry — this exclusive first look at the series’ Season 2 trailer will bring you up to sacred speed faster than you can say “what a wingspan!”

Upcoming episodes of the post-apocalyptic series, which returns on Thursday, July 9 (10/9c), will see a continuation of Gabriel and Michael’s ongoing angelic battle at the same time that Claire and David find themselves on opposite sides of a human civil war brewing in Vega.

Meanwhile, Alex travels to the human outpost of New Delphi in search of a military alliance and Michael comes across a seemingly perfect town untouched by the chaos around it. (If it’s run by someone calling himself The Governor, Michael, run.)

The drama’s second season also features cast additions Nic Bishop (Covert Affairs) as “brilliant but troubled military genius” Gates, Simon Merrells (Spartacus: War of the Damned) as New Delphi leader Julian, Christina Chong (24: Live Another Day) as Archangel Corps defector Zoe, Olivia Mace (the BBC’s Doctors) as leader of the untouched town Laurel and newcomer Luke Tyler as a teen named Pete who was born after the angelic battle began and has never lived in peaceful times.

In the trailer above, Alex gives a little background for newbies, Claire looks worried, Gabriel is bloodthirsty, Michael beseeches his “father,” and a battered-but-not-bowed David indignantly orders someone to step up and lead.
