The long awaited second season of Fortitude will premiere on Sky Atlantic on Thursday 26 January at 9.00pm.
It’s time to return to the place where blood runs cold. This time, even the sky itself runs red. Nine weeks after the horrific events of the last season, the remote Arctic town and prospective tourist destination has settled back into a state of normalcy, but has been irrevocably changed.

While the contamination has been contained, the town’s recovery is hamstrung by cutbacks from a government that has given up on the settlement. Many of the residents have abandoned the town; some due to the cuts, many just out of fear. Former Sheriff Dan Anderssen (Richard Dormer) is missing, presumed dead. Only Governor Hildur Odegard (Sofie Gråbøl), crab fisherman Michael Lennox (Dennis Quaid) and a handful of others remain, each with their own reason for doing so.
Outside the settlement, the wild has become even more dangerous and unpredictable, and the town is bathed in the eerie crimson glow of a blood aurora – a phenomenon linked to a dark and forgotten part of Fortitude’s history. A history that may be repeated as a strange figure accompanies a grim discovery in the snow. Make no mistake, Fortitude is still a place to be feared.
Fortitude Season 2 airs on Thursday 26 January 9.00pm Sky Atlantic & NOW TV
