‘Underground’ Extended Trailer Offers Intense Look at Season 2

Underground season 2 trailer The hit WGN original series Underground returns for its second season next month and judging from its new trailer, this season will be just as emotional as the first, if not moreso.

Season two of the 10-episode, hour-long series is described by the network as “an unremitting struggle for freedom within a divided America on the brink of civil war, each side vying to enact their own justice. Set in the aftermath of the Macon 7’s daring attempt to stage the greatest escape in history, this group of American heroes continues on their harrowing journey to freedom, with legendary abolitionist Harriet Tubman blazing the trail.”

The sophomore season of the show stars Jurnee Smollett-Bell (“Rosalee”), Aldis Hodge (“Noah”), Jessica de Gouw (“Elizabeth Hawkes”), Alano Miller‎ (“Cato”), Amirah Vann (“Ernestine”) and Aisha Hinds (“Harriet Tubman”). The show’s executive producer John Legend will be guest starring this season as Frederick Douglass.
