Come on in. The water’s so fine that the Siren TV show has been renewed for a second season on Freeform, with a start date TBD. There’s more good news. Although the first season was of the “limited” variety with only 10 installments, Freeform has ordered 16 episodes for Siren season two. On top of that, there are still two episodes left in the freshman season. Episode 1.09, “Street Fight,” airs on Thursday, May 17th, and the season one finale, “Aftermath,” aires on May 24th.
A Freeform mystery thriller, the first season of Siren stars Alex Roe, Eline Powell, Fola Evans-Akingbola, Ian Verdun, Rena Owen, Sibongile Mlambo, Chad Rook, Aylya Marzoff, Ron Yuan, Tammy Gillis, Curtis Lum, Anthony Harrison, Hannah Levien, Andrew Jenkins, David Kaye, and Sedale Threatt, Jr. The drama is set in Bristol Cove, a small fishing village which, according to the lore, was once home to mermaids. One day, the enigmatic Ryn (Powell) arrives in town. While Ben (Roe), a marine biologist, finds himself drawn to her, his co-worker, Maddie (Evans-Akingbola), is deeply suspicious of the newcomer. Together, they set out to uncover the truth.
