Fox Networks Group (FNG) Europe & Africa announced that Deep State season two will air globally in Spring 2019. Season one was the first regional scripted commission for the broadcaster, which doubled the primetime average audience on FOX across Europe and Africa. It was also the most viewed show on premium network EPIX, its home in the US.

A teaser trailer and first look photos from the new season reveal fresh details for the espionage thriller, which expands the deep state universe and introduces a range of new characters, led by Critics’ Choice Winner and Emmyâ-nominated actor, Walton Goggins (Ant-Man and the Wasp, Tomb Raider).

The second season will delve deeper into the murky and political world of the deep state. Having failed in the Middle East, those powers are now turning their attention to sub-Saharan Africa and the scramble to plunder its natural resources. This is the first dirty war over clean energy. The series will also explore the origin stories of some of our favorite characters from season one alongside witnessing the fall of a hero and orchestrating the making of a terrorist in the eyes of the West.

Sara Johnson, VP, Scripted, FNG Europe & Africa and executive producer said: “Season one was a brilliant introduction to Deep State, and we could not have been more thrilled with the response. We are excited to return to this contemporary drama brand, which blends action and political intrigue with a strong moral core, to tell a complex story in a compelling way”.

Hilary Bevan Jones, the executive producer with Endor Productions, a Red Arrow Studios Company, said: “It’s great to build on the ambitions and success of Deep State. Ranging from action-packed desert sequences to emotionally charged stories we get to build on season one and grow an even bigger audience with season two. I have massive admiration for Matthew Parkhill and his team of writers, Producer Paul Frift and FNG Europe & Africa and the quality of their content.”

Fox Networks Group Content Distribution holds exclusive global distribution rights for the series, working in partnership with FNG Europe & Africa.
