We have a new trailer for NOS4A2 season 2. AMC revealed the latest look at the series ahead of its scheduled return next month. Originally, the show was set to debut its sophomore season on June 1. However, that was recently pushed back by a few weeks to June 21. In any event, we now have a much better idea of what to expect this time around, as we will be making quite the time jump, with the action moving forward by nearly a decade.
The trailer opens up with a tense, extended scene in a garage before we pick up with Vic several years after the events of season 1. She has managed to make something of a life for herself, but when Charlie unexpectedly comes back into the picture, things get messy before the action brings us back to Christmasland. The tune Silent Night rings through much of the trailer, adding a bit of unsettling and creepy holiday cheer to the mixture.
NOS4A2 centers on Vic McQueen, a gifted young woman who discovers she has a supernatural ability to find lost things. This gift ends up putting her directly on a course with the evil and immortal Charlie Manx, a supernatural villain who feeds on the souls of children. Once he's finished, Charlie deposits their remains in a twisted place of his own imagination called Christmasland, where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Vic strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims, without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.
Season 2 picks up eight years after the events of the first season. Vic remains more determined than ever to destroy Charlie. All the while, Charlie is desperate for revenge and sets his sights on Vic's eight-year-old son Wayne, the person who means the most to her. The race for Wayne's soul begins as Vic and Charlie are once again set on a collision course. They both must confront the mistakes of their pasts in order to secure a hold on Wayne's future. The cast includes Ashleigh Cummings (Via McQueen), Zachary Quinto (Charlie Manx), Jahkara Smith (Maggie Leigh), Olafur Darri Olafsson (Bing Partridge), Virginia Kull (Linda McQueen) and Ebon Moss-Bachrach (Chris McQueen).
Jami O'Brien serves as writer, executive producer and showrunner on the series, with Lauren Corrao also on board as an executive producer. Joe Hill, who wrote the 2013 novel that the show is based on, additionally serves as an executive producer. The network had to delay much of its programming that was planned for summer and fall, due to the ongoing production shutdown. The Walking Dead season 10 finale and Walking Dead: World Beyond were a couple of notable casualties. So this will help fill the void this summer. NOS4A2 season 2 kicks off Sunday, June 21 on AMC. Be sure to check out the new trailer for yourself.
