The internationally acclaimed drama returns for a dramatic second season.
Set in the near future, creatures from ancient mythology battle for survival in a world that seeks to silence and destroy them.
As Season Two begins, the Zone has been razed to the ground by the Containment Authority. The humans and Hairypeople who once called it their home have scattered, disappearing deep into the city, fearing for their lives. Their only hope lies in Koen realising the full potential of his Cleverman powers, and using them to bring lasting peace to these warring cultures.
But while Koen’s estranged half-brother Waruu shares this vision, the lengths he is prepared to go to make it a reality are far more extreme. His hunger for the Cleverman’s power has twisted his soul, and his connection with the duplicitous and sinister billionaire Jarrod Slade will send the two brothers hurtling towards each other on a tragic trajectory.
Sexy, bloody, thought-provoking and startlingly original, “Cleverman” is a hit on ABC Australia and SundanceTV in the US, and boasts an acclaimed ensemble cast that includes Iain Glen (“Game of Thrones”), Golden Globe nominee Frances O’Connor (“The Missing”), Hunter Page-Lochard (“The Sapphires”) and Rob Collins (“The Wrong Girl”). Creatures and effects are by world-renowned Weta Workshop (“Lord of the Rings” trilogy, “Avatar”).
