The second season of WGN’s hit series “Underground” starring Jurnee Smollett-Bell (“Eve’s Bayou”) and Aldis Hodge (“Straight Outta Compton”) will follow the struggle for freedom within a divided America on the brink of civil war, each side vying to enact their own justice.

The acclaimed drama’s 10-episode sophomore run is set in the aftermath of the Macon 7’s daring escape attempt, following their harrowing journey to freedom with legendary abolitionist Harriet Tubman — glimpsed at the close of the Season 1 finale, and now played by Under the Dome‘s Aisha Hinds — blazing the trail.

“Underground” returns March 8 on WGN America at 10EST/9CST.
