Freeform’s hit YA sci-fi drama “Siren” is ready to come back for another season this winter. The network confirmed the Season 2 premiere window on social-media today, telling fans of the show to set a reminder to watch for more mermaids in January. Back in June “Siren” was the number-one new cable drama among women 18-34 and the cast has been in Vancouver shooting season two since their visit to San Diego Comic-Con this year.
We don’t have an exact premiere date yet for the new season, we will have to wait a little longer for that date when the first teaser-trailers start rolling in. Freeform did release a short teaser video to promote the new season, hinting that more mermaids might be coming to Bristol Cove.

If you haven’t been keeping up with the events of Bristol Cove, the series begins when a mysterious girl shows up and turns out to be a mermaid. The battle between man and sea takes a very vicious turn as these predatory beings return to reclaim their right to the ocean.
The series stars Alex Roe (“The 5th Wave”) as Ben, a bright marine biologist who finds himself drawn to Ryn, a mysterious new girl in town played by Eline Powell (“Game of Thrones”), who is a strange young woman with a deep dark secret. Fola Evans-Akingbola (“An American Exorcism”) stars as Maddie, also a marine biologist who works with Ben, and is highly suspicious of Ryn. Ian Verdun (“Life’s a Drag”) stars as Xander, a deep sea fisherman on a quest to uncover the truth; and Rena Owen (“Star Wars” Episodes II and III) as Helen, the town eccentric who seems to know more about the mermaids than she lets on.
The show is based on a story by Eric Wald and Dean White who both serve as executive producers. Emily Whitesell (“Finding Carter”) is on board as showrunner and executive producer. Brad Luff, Nate Hopper and RD Robb are also attached as executive producers.
