News & Interviews for Underground: Season 2
Underground is sneakily feminist-a bloody, action-packed thriller made refreshing in its use of the female gaze across every episode.
It's intense and deeply emotional and consistently sets itself apart from other contemporary works on American slavery.
'Underground' insists that we see the connections between the institution of slavery and contemporary racial inequality.
The second season of WGN's slaves-on-the-run saga shows no signs of sophomore slump. It's just as audacious as ever, combining American history (the Underground Railroad) with plot swerves right out 24.
The show sizzled with action, suspense, phenomenal performances, and creative directing.
