Season two of WGN America's breakout hit, Underground, returns on March. 8!
On Underground Season 1, the Macon 7 escaped their plantation and were hunted down by slave-catcher August (Chris Meloni). Not everyone made it out alive and the consequences set off a ripple effect of action and suspense that led up to a shocking finale.
On Underground Season 2 we will see the fall out of the Macon's 7 attempt to pull off the most incredible escape of all time.
Season two also brings with it new characters, including Harriet Tubman, one of the greatest abolitionists in American history, if not all of time. It'll also introduce guest star John Legend, as Frederick Douglass.
Last season's tag was "Break Free." This year, they're asking us to "Rise Up."
Check out the posters below.
