Premium network EPIX® has confirmed that the contemporary sci-fi series “From” has been renewed for a second 10-episode season. This year’s first season premiere was EPIX’s most-watched original series to date and current performance analysis indicates that the first season is on track to be EPIX’s second most-watched original series behind the Emmy-winning series “The Godfather of Harlem,” executive produced by and starring Forest Whitaker.
Created by John Griffin (Crater) and produced by Jack Bender (Lost, Game of Thrones) and Jeff Pinkner (Lost, Alias, Fringe), the series unravels the mysteries of a nightmarish town that ensnares everyone who enters. As the unwilling residents fight to keep a sense of normalcy and search for a way out, they must also survive the threats of the surrounding forest – including the terrifying creatures that come out when the sun goes down.
The show stars Harold Perrineau (Lost) leading an ensemble cast that includes Catalina Sandino Moreno (Maria Full of Grace, The Affair), Eion Bailey (Band of Brothers, Once Upon a Time), Hannah Cheramy (Under Wraps, Van Helsing), Simon Webster (Strays), Ricky He (The Good Doctor), Chloe Van Landschoot (Charity, Skin), Corteon Moore (Utopia Falls), Pegah Ghafoori (The Perfect Wedding), David Alpay (Castle Rock), Elizabeth Saunders (Clarice), Elizabeth Moy and Avery Konrad (Honor Society).
Commenting on the renewal news, EPIX President, Michael Wright said, “The first season of From mystified, enthralled, and terrified fans and critics alike with its haunting world, vivid characters and thrilling scares. We have been delighted by the social conversation generated by the FROM community and can’t wait to unravel more of this mysterious story with our passionate fans in season two.”
Executive Producer, Jeff Pinkner added “On behalf of the producers, writers, our insanely talented cast and crew, we are thrilled and grateful to both EPIX and our audience for the opportunity to continue exploring the world of FROM,” said Jeff Pinkner, executive producer.
According to Epix, season two will reveal hidden truths about the nature and terrifying origins of the town whilst life for its residents is plunged into even further chaos by the arrival of mysterious newcomers. Production will commence this summer in Halifax, Nova Scotia, with an expected air date in 2023.
