Earlier this year BBC America confirmed a few of the new faces that we will see in the new season. Joining the regulars in Season 2 will be John Hannah as the mage, he is a powerful wizard who takes great pleasure in doing evil and is seeking to conquer a world not his own. Alan Tudyk will play Mr. Priest, a ruthless, dangerous, and violent bounty hunter working for Blackwing. Aleks Paunovic will play Wygar Oak, a dominating enforcer for the Dengdamor royal family. Amanda Walsh will play Suzie Boreton, the character is an unassuming, insecure, depressed soccer mom who is selected for an unexpected role by the Mage, and gradually reveals her true, terrifying self to our heroes. With all of those teases out of the way, you can now enjoy the trailer screened at SDCC, thanks to a quick upload from BBC America.
Season two premieres this fall on BBC AMERICA.
