Season two of WGN America’s revolutionary series “Underground,” called “remarkable” by both The Associated Press and The New York Times, makes its jaw-dropping culmination in the finale episode “Soldier,” airing Wednesday, May 10 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. The series continues to receive rave reviews from both critics and fans alike for its thrilling depiction of a divided America on the brink of civil war. Most recently, “Underground” made television history with the extended episode “Minty” that aired April 12, featuring Aisha Hinds in a career-defining performance as Harriet Tubman delivering an hour-long monumental and definitive speech on her life. “Underground” has also boosted the cable network to a record-setting, best primetime month in history in audience delivery in March, and the series continues to make its mark on social media, trending nationally and worldwide on Twitter on Wednesday nights.
In the season two finale, written by Misha Green and Joe Pokaski and directed by Anthony Hemingway, Rosalee (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and Noah (Aldis Hodge) come face-to-face with Cato (Alano Miller) who proves once again that he only follows one plan – his own. Strategies change as Harriet (Aisha Hinds) is recruited by John Brown’s men, and Daniel (Bokeem Woodbine) makes a desperate plea to Elizabeth (Jessica de Gouw) and Georgia (Jasika Nicole) to help save his family, causing Elizabeth to make a drastic decision. Plans continue to digress for August (Christopher Meloni) when he’s left alone with the unpredictable Ernestine (Amirah Vann), while Patty Cannon (Sadie Stratton) becomes the victim of her own pursuit.
