Season two of the 10-episode, hour-long series follows an unremitting struggle for freedom within a divided America on the brink of civil war, each side vying to enact their own justice. In the premiere, a desperate Rosalee (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), anxiously awaits Noah’s (Aldis Hodge) release from prison, and joins forces with Harriet Tubman (Aisha Hinds) to fend off slave catchers and secure the safe passage of runaways. As John (Marc Blucas) battles for Noah’s freedom in the courtroom, Elizabeth’s (Jessica de Gouw) take a more subversive path to abolitionism, entering into a secret society known as “the sewing circle.” Meanwhile, Ernestine (Amirah Vann) struggles with personal demons and seductive vices at a new plantation. The fight for freedom continues, even as tragedy strikes.
