Underground will return for a second season on WGN America, and fans of the series could see many more seasons of the series. Deadline shared the latest comments from Joe Pokaski, creator and executive producer for the series, and he sees a potentially long future for the series that focuses on the Underground railroad.
Pokaski said the following at a recent panel about the series:
“Almost everything had a root in something we read or something we listened to. We have seasons and seasons worth of stories we still want to tell.”
Have you watched Underground on WGN America? Do you want many more seasons of this series? Tell us what you think.
I’m so disappointed that WGN has cancelled this series as well as the Outsiders. We have watched both since the beginning. While the Outsiders isn’t believable, Underground is one of the best series out there. I sincerely hope some other network picks them up.
What about all of the Native American Indians that were here before any African Americans are any White People. Are you going to tell their story you should. We have heard several African Americans stories and that’s important but we need the Native Americans Story Told the truth not the cartoons or westerns they have on TV. The Native American Story is important also! When is that going to happen?
I can not wait for the next season. One of the best series on. The acting is superior.
Proof that history can be very interesting when one concentrates on the people involved and who make/made in the first place. Obviously, these excellent creators of the TV show et al get it…don’t spare nothing and tell the whole truth and nothing but…the rest will take care of itself. A story that begged to be told the right way. Good acting and set work etc. also make it very real and like one is there. Good job and please keep the stories coming.
Yes I do for some this is the only way to learn it is hard to watch sometimes but think how hard it was to live through it we are still fighting for it but some of the problem is that we do not take responsibility for our own fault in the problems
This is a great series; depressing to watch at times, but it is telling the ugly truth of American history. Well acted, well written. I definitely want it to continue. Will there be DVD’s for sale?
I am a big fan of Underground. I wait around every week for a new episode. This is a very outstanding cast and each cast member’s role fits them to a tee. Would love for them to come back for a second season. This show is just what WGN America needed. Before Undergroung came on I didn’t even know that the station even existed. Captivating and heart pounding show. Please come back for Season 2. I’ll be waiting. ( Your biggest fan yet!)
The show is hard to watch. That being said, it is skillfully written and acted. It is a part of our American history, shameful as that may be.
YES!! Absolutely want many more seasons of this phenomenal show!! I’ve fallen in love with every cast member and their individual stories. Hated seeing anyone’s demise- wish somehow their would b an amazing twist and they really didn’t die…
I love this show. Every time I watch it my heart beats fast because I am always anxious of what’s going to happen next. In a way I kind of want Underground to be different every season. Like every season new characters new stories. It would be too emotional if they continued to same story line and I would probably have a heart attack if something ever happened to Rosa Lee. Also in a way it’ll be able to the tell the many different stories of back then and the writers wouldn’t have to re-create new situations every time for… Read more »
