Copper Season 2 Trailer Features Guns, Loyalties And High Stakes
BBC America’s first original series, Copper, is finally gearing up for its Season 2 premiere. Season 1 of the series followed issues related to the Civil War, as well as the stratification of social classes, all within the confines of New York City. The trailer for the second season of the series shows high stakes within New York City, as well as plenty of power grabs and gunfights.
One of my favorite things about period dramas of this ilk is the goofiness and inaccuracy of the guns. In the short trailer, we get to see a lot of the pistols of the period and despite the silliness of the equipment, Season 2 actually seems as if it will be jam-packed with action. Detective Kevin Corcoran still seems to be in his element in the Five Points and it looks like the police’s work to take over the streets of the Five Points may be a big plot point in the new season.
Copper will be a little more expansive than the series was in Season 1. Instead of 10 episodes, fans will get 13, and some big names have been added to the Season 2 cast. Back in April, we noted that True Blood’s Alfre Woodard had signed on to the cast, playing a woman looking for a new life in New York City. Other actors joining the drama include Eamonn Walker, who will take on the role of Frederick Douglass in the new season, and Andrew Howard, Lee Tergesen, and Donal Logue.
Copper premieres on Sunday, June 23 at 10 p.m. ET on BBC America.
