All ten new episodes of the second season will be available on March 28, 2024, exclusively on Prime Video in the U.S., UK, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada.

Season Two picks up with a string of seemingly unrelated murders, hinting at a much larger conspiracy that threatens everyone in this small, tight-knit town.

Based on Philipp Meyer’s critically acclaimed novel of the same name, the first season of American Rust premiered on Showtime in September 2021, exploring the tattered American Dream in a Rust Belt town in southwest Pennsylvania through the eyes of police chief Del Harris (Jeff Daniels).

Harris becomes compromised when the son of the woman he loves (Maura Tierney) is accused of murder, and he is forced to decide what he’s willing to do to protect him.

Returning from Season One are Daniels as Detective Del Harris, Tierney as Grace Poe, David Alvarez (West Side Story, 2021) as Isaac English, Alex Neustaedter (Colony) as Billy Poe, Julie Mayorga (Rare Objects) as Lee English, Mark Pellegrino (Supernatural) as Virgil Poe, Rob Yang (Succession) as Chief Steve Park, and Kyle Beltran (Inventing Anna) as Detective Fisher.

Joining the cast for Season Two are Luna Lauren Velez (Dexter) as Detective Angela Burgos, Marc Menchaca (Ozark) as Vic Walker, Nick Sandow (Orange Is the New Black) as Mike Orr, and Britian Seibert (A Murder at the End of the World) as Cynthia Frazier.

There’s also Christopher Denham (Billions) as Russell Wolff, Amelia Workman (FBI) as Rinna Bransford, Leon Addison Brown (The Knick) as Chief Bolt, and Sara Lindsey (High Desert) as Maya Park.

American Rust: Broken Justice is executive produced by Dan Futterman, Adam Rapp, Jeff Daniels, Paul Martino, Michael De Luca, Ivan Schneeberg, David Fortier, Nick Nantell, Katie O’Connell Marsh, and Elisa Ellis.

American Rust: Broken Justice is produced and distributed globally by Boat Rocker.
