Underground wrapped its first season earlier this week with a shocking finale. The final moments of the episode introduced the real person behind the Underground Railroad, and she will be a big player in the action of season two.
The final scene of the finale featured Harriet Tubman. Check out video of the scene below.
Misha Green revealed to Deadline that Tubman will play a role in season two. She said:
“She’s definitely going to be a character that’s going to be coming in and out of our series, for sure.”
Joe Pokaski shared more about season two:
“Misha and I wanted to make sure we kept Season 1 personal, so it was about this group of seven slaves who want to be free. The whole idea within Season 2 is that now we can look at the Underground Railroad more as a network and the first integrated Civil Rights Movement in America. We want to explore the structure of it a little better in the next season, so our world, hopefully it’s going to get a little bigger. And in getting, bigger, there are so many stories all over the place to tell.”
Underground will return with its second season next year. Are you a fan of this series? Were you surprised by the finale appearance of Harriet? Tell us what you think.
