Berlin Station Season 2 overview and preview screenings

Epix.com has posted the overview for Season 2 of Berlin Station.

Season 2 of Berlin Station opens in the thick of a New World Order that has taken root and is steadily deepening. In the wake of the Far Right tide sweeping across continental Europe, Germany finds itself on the precipice of a pivotal election. The captivating and charismatic Alt-Right party leader Katerina Gerhardt has capitalized on the refugee crisis and economic strife to woo disillusioned voters fed up with the status quo. She seems poised for a big win, and our heroes at Berlin Station must determine the nature of the threat she poses, and what role they should play. Is Katerina is a viable candidate with a controversial message who should be protected by the democratic process? Or, as preliminary evidence suggests, is she colluding with terrorists?

Season 2 stars Richard Armitage as Daniel Miller, Rhys Ifans as Hector Dejean, Richard Jenkins as Steven Frost, Leland Orser as Robert Kirsch and Michelle Forbes as Valerie Edwards. New to the cast this season are Ashley Judd as the new Chief of Station, BB Yates, and Keke Palmer as young case officer April Lewis.

Bakersfield Now interview for Berlin Station transcript

We have added our 4-page transcript of Richard’s interview with Bakersfield Now for Berlin Station to our Library. There’s a brief mention of Robin Hood, and Cold Feet (where IMDb apparently says Richard took aqua aerobic lessons for Cold Feet, although he’s also said in an interview that he gave aqua aerobic lessons). This link is to p. 1 of the transcript and you can navigate through the rest of the interview – and the Library – by using the Library’s thumbnails.
