New Season Will Double Down On Mystery

The (dull?) story of the Homecoming Transitional Support Centre continues in the second season of Amazon’s Homecoming, and it promises to be even more twisted.

Homecoming’s new season focuses on Jackie (Janelle Monáe), who finds herself at the Geist Group’s live-in facility for veterans after waking up in a boat with zero recollection of how she got there — or who she is. Jackie also can’t shake the disturbing feeling that something isn’t quite right with the world she’s trying so hard to understand.

Here’s the trailer –

The official synopsis reads –

“The critically-acclaimed series Homecoming returns for its second season with new twists and an exciting new star, Janelle Monáe. Her character wakes in a rowboat adrift a lake, with no memory of how she got there — or even who she is. Her ensuing search for identity will lead her into the heart of the Geist Group, the unconventional wellness company behind the Homecoming Initiative.”

Homecoming’s former protagonist Heidi Bergman (Julia Roberts) will nott be making a comeback, however, she is serving as executive producer for this season. Walter Cruz (Stephan James) and Audrey Temple (Hong Chau) are still very much involved with the story. The ensemble cast will be joined by Chris Cooper and Joan Cusack.

Season two of Homecoming premieres on Amazon Prime on 22nd May.
