'Rogue' Returns To DirecTV 5/28 - Season 2 Of The Suspense-Drama Starring Thandie Newton

Rogue

Speaking of black British actors leaving the UK for greener pastures in the USA (see my post just below this one)...

DirecTV announced today that the second season of the suspense-drama Rogue, which stars Thandie Newton, from leading independent studio Entertainment One (eOne) and Greenroom Entertainment in conjunction with Momentum TV, will premiere on Wednesday, May 28 at 10 p.m. ET/PT

Newton will resume her role as Grace Travis, and will be joined by Cole Hauser as the enigmatic Ethan Kelly.

Season two of the DirecTV original series will see Grace attempt to navigate a new life. But things can't stay quiet for long. Separated from her husband, she is committed to providing a stable home for her daughter Evie (Sarah Jeffries), but those plans are thwarted by the unexpected arrival of her estranged mother Vivian (Clare Higgins). Professionally, Grace has taken a job as a handler for an FBI Task Force investigating the shadowy world of corporate espionage in San Francisco. But when her undercover operative Sarah (Aleksa Palladino) goes missing, Grace is forced to return to the life she so vehemently renounced. While undercover, Grace meets Ethan Kelly, who owns the security consulting firm Sarah was in the midst of investigating when she disappeared. Ethan has his own agenda and soon a dangerous game of cat and mouse ensues. Uncovering the truth will lead Grace to discover a dark secret in Ethan's past; a secret that has led to betrayal and murder and that will ultimately bind Ethan and Grace's fates together.

Season two of Rogue also stars Andrea Roth, Rupert Evans, Alec Newman, Brendan Fletcher and Clayne Crawford.

I still have yet to watch the first season in full. I'm not a DirecTV customer. It was released on DVD exactly a week ago. But I'm waiting for it to make its way to Netflix streaming.
