Check out the new teaser trailer for WGN’s epic series “UNDERGROUND!” The 30-second clip was released earlier today and features most of the season one cast along with newcomer Aisha Hinds as the infamous Harriet Tubman. According to S&A, the series returns on Wednesday, March 8 at 10 p.m. EST and will feature 10-new one hour-long episodes. The show’s executive producer—John Legend—will also be making a cameo appearance as the legendary Fredrick Douglas.
“UNDERGROUND” centers on a group of slaves planning a daring 600-mile escape from a Georgia plantation. It stars Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Rosalee; Aldis Hodge as Noah; Christopher Meloni as August Pullman; Alano Miller as Cato; Jessica de Gouw as Elizabeth Hawkes; Marc Blucas as John Hawkes and Amirah Vann as Ernestine. The first season was shot in Louisiana but moved to Georgia this past August for the second season.
“UNDERGROUND” delivered 3 million total viewers weekly, and made history as WGN America’s most-watched original program ever in its freshman season. The series was honored with screenings across the country including the White House and ranked as the #1 most discussed cable drama on social media each week it aired.
Word can’t express how happy I am about posting this as “UNDERGROUND” was one of the best shows to come out of 2016. So without further ado…here it is!
