The Sundance Now exclusive anthology series The Pact is returning for a thrilling second season with two episodes on Thursday, August 31 on Sundance Now and AMC+. Additional episodes drop weekly, Thursdays, on both platforms.
The new six-part season from returning series creator Pete McTighe (A Discovery of Witches, Clickbait) will see the series tell a whole new story with a brand-new cast while maintaining the series’ beautiful Welsh setting and its focus on secrets and lies.
In Season 2 of The Pact, social worker Christine (BAFTA winner Rakie Ayola, Grace, Black Mirror; and who appeared in the first season but is playing an entirely different character in this run) and her adult children, Will (Lloyd Everitt, The Sandman, Flack), Jamie (Aaron Anthony, Emmerdale Farm, Behind Her Eyes) and Megan (Mali Ann Rees, Keeping Faith, Mammoth), are trying to move on after the tragic death of their brother Liam.
As Megan’s wedding approaches, their lives are turned upside down when a stranger, Connor (Jordan Wilks, Lagging, The Devolution of the Species), arrives in town claiming an extraordinary connection.
There is much debate over whether to meet this stranger and loyalties are tested even before a decision is made. But ultimately, the siblings meet the man who claims to share their DNA, a strange loner from out of town and the spitting image of their long-dead brother Liam.
As Christine realizes her hold over her family is under threat, she seeks to keep Connor at bay, denying his claims. But it’s clear to Connor that Christine is keeping a dark secret, and he’s determined to uncover the truth.
The Pact Season 2 is another edge-of-the-seat morality tale with loveable, complex characters under extreme pressure, navigating blood ties and divided loyalties while facing the ghosts of their past
The season is written by McTighe, with Joy Wilkinson having written episodes 204 and 205. Nicole Volavka directed the first three episodes, while Christiana Ebohon-Green directed the last three episodes.
The season is executive produced by McTighe, Elwen Rowlands, Hayley Manning, Ben Irving, Helen Perry, Rakie Ayola and Adam Knopf.
Cardiff-based Little Door Productions produces the series.
