“Siren” was the No. 1 new cable drama during its spring run among Women 18-49 and the most socially engaging new cable drama, yielding 4.83 million engagements across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and Google +.
Building on the foundation of an epic first season, season two of the popular drama promises an appearance of more mermaids in the coastal town of Bristol Cove … but are they seeking revenge or is something more catastrophic driving them out of the sea? Marine researchers Ben (Alex Roe) and Maddie (Fola Evans-Akingbola) continue to establish a bond with mermaid Ryn (Eline Powell), not only to protect her but to try to help save her entire civilization.
“Siren” is executive produced by Eric Wald and Emily Whitesell, who serves as showrunner. Dean White, Brad Luff, Nate Hopper and RD Robb also serve as executive producers.”
