EPIX today announced that Season 2 of the espionage drama Deep State will premiere on April 28 at 9 PM ET/PT. Viewers can catch up on the first season of Deep State before the Season 2 premiere via EPIX NOW, the network’s new streaming service available for download in the App store for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV and in Google Play for Android phones and tablets.
Joining the cast this season is Walton Goggins. Known for his versatile performances in Justified, Vice Principals and The Hateful Eight, Goggins stars as Nathan Miller, an ex-CIA operative brought in as a fixer for the deep state.
The second season will delve deeper into the murky and political world of the deep state. Having failed in the Middle East, those powers are now turning their attention to sub-Saharan Africa and the scramble to plunder its natural resources. This is the first dirty war over clean energy. The series will also explore the origin stories of some of our favorite characters from season one alongside witnessing the fall of a hero and orchestrating the making of a terrorist in the eyes of the West.
The returning cast members include Joe Dempsie (Game of Thrones, Skins), Karima McAdams (Fearless, Vikings), Alistair Petrie (Sex Education, The Night Manager) and Anastasia Griffith (Damages, Once Upon a Time). Rounding out the ensemble are new cast members Victoria Hamilton (The Crown, Doctor Foster), Alexander Siddig (The Spy, Gotham) Lily Banda (The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind) and Zainab Jah (Elementary, Homeland).
