Underground Renewed for Season Two


John Legend's slave rebellion series Underground renewed for a second season on WGN...

It was announced yesterday that Underground starring Jurnee Smollett-Bell and Aldis Hodge has been renewed for a season two consisting of ten episodes.

Underground centers on a group of slaves planning a daring 600-mile escape from a Georgia plantation. Along the way, they are aided by a secret abolitionist couple running a station on the Underground Railroad as they attempt to evade the people charged with bringing them back, dead or alive.

This is by far the BEST series I have watched in a long time! Not since The Wire or Breaking Bad have I been so intrigued. Action, great actors and a compelling story line! Reality TV is over-rated and this is the type of show we need to get back to.

This show is the real deal! Initially, I was not planning to watch because of the subject matter, but was hooked after the first episode. I'm so glad that I was wrong.

Ditto everything mentioned by ATLANTA Wifey.

Underground is Awesome but unfortunately due to the subject matter our people are not so excited to watch, well some anyway. This gives me courage and helps me to have that conversation with my 7 year old. I only would add that it would sure be nice to see our history depicted before we were called slaves lol but one would have to use the Bible for that, we ain't ready. .smh

Shows the gritty side of slavery.

I bet whites and some blacks are still in denial about the actuality of some of the events that happened during those dark days!

Roll Jordan Roll is a good book on this subject.

I do watch it and the reason I can watch it without being repulsed is because I get to see the black man kick the sprites arse but I will NOT be watching the new ROOTS. I don't want that in my psyche or my child's. Roots is out out to teach our kids you were slaves and still are. It's called mind control. So to you History Channel in my Richard Pryor voice "you can kiss my moorish arse!!!!

I'd rather watch these old DECENT slaves fight for their freedom than the new COONS on empire.

Like upper class Blacks also owning slaves? Like people owning slaves in the northern states? Like white Irish slaves outnumbering Black slaves? Like how white Christians made the first attempts at ending slavery in the West (despite contributing to it) and eventually all over the world?

Meanwhile, there's child/sex trafficking still happening in the United States, and women, gays and trans are stoned to death in the middle east still...

Yeah, such "dark times" in the "past"...

Thank you for your honesty because I clearly remember that last thread about this show and all I seen was "Ugh not another slave movie " and "omg why can't they make movies about something else" ect. Nice to see somebody owning up to giving it a chance cause it's really good.
@8:46 STFU with that tired ass blacks owning slaves bs that you pull outcho troll ass tryi b to sound like you bringing up some shit don't nobody know the real deal about. Try indentured servant or blacks with money buying their relatives for freedom. Foh!
