The day after its U.S. premiere and just hours before its local bow, SundanceTV and Australia’s ABC TV have renewed the Australian genre series “Cleverman” for a second season.
Set in the near future, the story revolves around two estranged indigenous brothers (Hunter Page-Lochard, Rob Collins) who are forced together to fight for their own survival as otherworldly creatures also emerge into the dystopian landscape. Iain Glen and Stef Dawson also star.
Production on the show’s next six hourlong episodes will begin later this year in Sydney. Directors Wayne Blair and Leah Purcell return for next season. The first season is scheduled to air on BBC Three in the UK soon.
