It was announced at the Television Critics Association 2017 event that Berlin Station season 2 will premiere on Epix on Sunday, October 15 at 9pm ET. Executive producer Bradley Winter and stars Ashley Judd and Keke Palmer were also in attendance to discuss season 2.
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.
The series is created and executive produced by Olen Steinhauer (author: The Tourist, All The Old Knives, The Cairo Affair). Bradford Winters (“Dig,” “The Americans,” “Boss,” “Oz”) serves as executive producer and showrunner. Academy Award® winner Eric Roth (Forrest Gump, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, “House of Cards”), along with Steve Golin, Kerry Kohansky-Roberts, Keith Redmon and Luke Rivett from Anonymous Content (“True Detective,” “The Knick,” “Mr. Robot”) also executive produce. The series is produced by Paramount Television and Anonymous Content.

Richard talks to Express.co.uk about the responses he got on twitter after his Brexit tweets and also discusses Pilgrimage (graphic spoilers).
Mithicalentertainment posted their first impressions from a Castlevania screening this week at Anime Expo saying, “For starters, the voice acting is fantastic...Richard Armitage, who played Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit trilogy, faithfully brings the character of Trevor Belmont to life as well.”
It was also announced that Netflix has already approved a second season of the show.
Graham McTavish helps officially announce the Castlevania cast and which characters they are voicing.
Richard has tweeted that he saw Pilgrimage and wishes it success at its European premiere at the Edinburgh Film Fest. And he also warns about the violence.
