Do­min­ion Aveng­ing An­gels

SFX - - Red Alert -

Who knew that Scott Stewart’s film Le­gion would come back with a vengeance on the small screen? The show’s first sea­son, set 25 years af­ter the film, re­vealed the story of Alex Lannen ( Christo­pher Egan), who is des­tined to be­come the saviour of mankind as war­ring ar­changel broth­ers Michael ( Tom Wis­dom) and Gabriel ( Carl Beukes) grap­ple for power.

Ex­panded to 13 episodes, sea­son two opens a few months af­ter Alex’s climb to Gabriel’s aerie. Showrun­ner Vaun Wilmott prom­ises that scene will pay off in un­ex­pected ways. “Alex will be very driven and ac­tive,” Wilmott says. “By the end he will be a much more sea­soned leader that sees be­yond him­self, like his de­sire to pro­tect Claire and their un­born baby.

“We are pack­ing in so much story,” Wilmott en­thuses. “It is a much big­ger sea­son and a much big­ger show. We con­tinue in Vega but we’ve ex­panded into Mal­lory and New Del­phi.”

How­ever, Vega is still a hot bed of drama as Claire takes over the city’s lead­er­ship. And where is Michael in all of this? “Alone and an out­cast,” Wilmott says. “Sea­son two is about him find­ing his way again through Alex.”
