The Greek mythology-based series second installment is set for a mid-November premiere as reported by Den of Geek. BBC One's "Atlantis Season 2," slated for Nov. 15 debut, has its official full trailer released recently that gave enough sneak peek on the upcoming adventure and fantasy series, TV Wise said.
"Atlantis," created by Howard Overman, is produced by Urban Myth Films & BBC Cymru Wales. The British company worked with BBC America to be able to do a series about the legendary Atlantis, an ancient city filled with mysteries in line with Greek myths and legend.
"Atlantis Season 2" will set the comeback of previous season's characters like Hercules, Jason, and Pythagoras. The three epic heroes played by Mark Addy, Jack Donnelly, and Robert Emms, will reprise their roles as the series' main characters who are in an amazing adventure within the Atlantis.
The second chapter of BBC One's British fantasy and adventure television programme will continue the previous season's ending scene, where Pasiphae discovered that Jason is her son, Wales Online reported. Sarah Parish's character will still continue her goal of conquering Atlantis against her step daughter Ariadne.
Things will get more complicated against Pasiphae's plans as Ariadne, played by Aiysha Hart, and Jason is in a blossoming romantic relationship. Aside from them, Vincent Regan and Amy Manson will also have their debut as regular characters of the upcoming "Atlantis season 2" while Ken Bones will still play as Melas. Robert Pugh and Peter de Jersey, on the other hand, are set for guest roles in the series' second installment.
It is also reported that "Atlantis Season 2," set with 13 new episodes, is "almost a reboot" show according to Addy. It is because the newest chapter of the adventure series is 'a completely different show' ones compared with the season 1.
"I think it is a completely different show. It's not totally different obviously, but it's different in its nature and it's an improvement," Addy who played as Hercules, said in an interview. The actor, who also starred in "Game of Thrones" and the "Full Montym," also claimed that "Atlantis Season 2" writers and producers have reinvented and improved the series' second season.
Queen Pasiphae, Sarah Parish, explained the change to 8:30 time slot required them to make "Atlantis Season 2" darker' and "more older" as the given air time has more adult viewers than young.
So Atlantis fans should expect more serious drama in the upcoming "Atlantis Season 2."
