Homecoming, Season 2 Review

Homecoming is back with a fresh new season this week, but is it worth tuning into?

Homecoming’s first season explored life at the Homecoming Transitional Support Center, a private facility working to teat veterans arrive home from war, but it turned out to be something much bigger.

 

When we pick up in season two, we are thrown quickly into a new mystery when our new character wakes up in a rowboat adrift on a lake, with no memory of how she got there – or even who she is. Upon leaving the boat, she is stopped by police, dazed and confused, she finds some ID which sees her named Jacklyn (Janelle Monae). And so begins a quest for answers that will bring her to the heart of the Geist Group, the unconventional wellness company behind the Homecoming Initiative. But revealing any more would be a great disservice to the story…

 

For those worried that the second season wouldn’t link to the first, rest assured that we check in on Walter Cruz (Stephan James), who is trying to built a new life following the traumas of war and the Homecoming Initiative, but the past can’t be forgotten. The Geist Group also takes centre stage as Audrey Temple (Hong Chau) finds herself thrust into unexpected positions at the top of the corporate ladder following on from the post-credit scene from season one. Will the Group recover, and just what does the red vile do?

 

Janelle Monae steals the show here and Stephan James bring Walter to life with a performance  that is unforgettable.

 

Creators Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg have crafted a second season full of mystery, intrigue and twists that are best discovered as the series progresses, so settle in a buckle up. It certainly delivers something special.
