Season two resumes as an Amazon Original Series with noted actor Dennis Quaid (Vantage Point) joining the ensemble cast. The ten-episode season of Fortitude follows Sheriff Dan Anderssen (Richard Dormer, Game of Thrones) of Fortitude, a small isolated community with a captive population in an environment that is undergoing change and upheaval due to parasite and pathogen activity. After shooting the woman he loved, Dan becomes consumed with guilt, disappears into the wilderness and is presumed dead. Without a sheriff, the people of Fortitude begin to wonder whether Deputy Eric Odegard (Björn Hlynur Haraldsson, Jar 2pm City), who has spent the last few weeks desperately searching for Dan, can fill his shoes. A new body is discovered on the other side of town and Eric must step up and lead this horrific investigation. Quaid stars as Michael Lennox, a fisherman and patriarch of a family living in Fortitude, who is struggling to come to terms with his terminally ill wife, and will try anything to find a cure.
