‘The Bridge’ Season 2 Trailer: FX Border Drama Unveils First Summer Sneak Peek
It’s been a good long while since we’ve heard anything from the border of FX’s US-Mexico drama ‘The Bridge,’ which since ordered a second season of the danish series remake starring Diane Kruger and Demian Bichir. Now, the first trailer has arrived for ‘The Bridge’ season 2, teasing even more international violence for the July premiere.
The brief snippets only reveal so much of ‘The Bridge”s season 2 plot, though we gather that Marco will continue to pursue his son’s killer behind bars, while Sonya (Kruger) and Hank (‘Silence of the Lambs’ star Ted Levine) are forced to brandish a shotgun at an unseen enemy, amid plenty of footage of fresh corpses.
When last we heard of the July premiere, ‘The Descendants’ star Matthew Lillard and ‘Breaking Bad‘ heartbreaker Emily Rios had been promoted to series regular, following acclaimed guest turns in the first season. For those unfamiliar, ‘The Bridge’ stars Diane Kruger and Demian Bichir as detectives from El Paso and Juarez, Mexico, who partner to solve a mysterious murder along the US-Mexican border.
‘The Bridge’ also stars Annabeth Gish and Thomas M. Wright, with season 2 likely picking up the ongoing thread of border relations, where much of the first season moved away from the politics to a more general murder mystery. A mysterious cash-filled home discovered by Lillard and Rios’ characters toward the finale will also play prominently into the second season.
While we wait for announcements of an official premiere, check out the first footage of ‘The Bridge’ season 2 above, and give us your predictions for the new run in the comments!
