(from Starz's press release, October 2018) Starz, a Lionsgate company (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B), today released the official Season Two trailer of "Counterpart," offering a first look into the much-anticipated second season which will return on Sunday, December 9 at 9PM ET/PT on STARZ in the U.S. and exclusively on STARZPLAY via Prime Video Channels in the UK and Germany. After a critically acclaimed season one, which garnered a 100% Certified Fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes, "Counterpart" is back for a 10-episode second season featuring new series regular Betty Gabriel (Get Out, "Westworld") as "Naya Temple" as well as Emmy(R)-winning actor James Cromwell ("American Horror Story: Asylum," "Six Feet Under") appearing in a recurring role as "Yanek." At The Office of Interchange, those who have high enough access safeguard a crossing into a parallel dimension not unlike our own. And if their world is like ours, who are we over there? Are we better? Are we different? Season Two finds Howard (J.K. Simmons) and his counterpart living out these questions. With the Crossing closed and each of them stranded in the other's world, they have to adapt for survival. Howard Prime takes on his other's life: going to his job, living in his home... with his wife. Howard Alpha is locked in a mysterious black site known as Echo, cut off from everyone he knows. As a cold war escalates between worlds deepening a fickle divide, both men find themselves growing increasingly like their other. Joining Simmons in Season Two are series regulars Olivia Williams (The Sixth Sense, Hyde Park on Hudson, "Manhattan"), Harry Lloyd (The Theory of Everything, Jane Eyre, "Manhattan'), Nicholas Pinnock (Captain America: The First Avenger, "Marcella"), Nazanin Boniadi ("Homeland," Ben-Hur, Hotel Mumbai) and Sara Serraiocco (Salvo, Cloro, Worldly Girl).
