I need Season 2 of Underground to get here, like STAT…and here’s another reason why. John Legend, who also serves as the shows Executive Producer, will be seen on the other side of the lens in Season 2 with guest appearances as Frederick Douglass.
C’mon y’all! Frederick Douglass and Harriett Tubman. Season Two of WGN’s Underground is giving us all the feels, and cant get here soon enough. Seriously! Could Underground get any better?
Synonymous with justice and freedom, Douglass was born into slavery, and went on to become one of the great writers, orators, and leaders of the abolitionist movement. The role is a great fit for Legend, who has used his influence as an award wining singer/songwritter to call out injustice, and fight for human rights.
With 3 million total viewers weekly in its debut season, Underground is WGN America’s most-watched original program.
Stay tuned for more. Underground Season 2 will return early 2017 on WGN America.
