The critically-acclaimed series Homecoming returns for its second season with new twists and an exciting new star, Janelle Monáe. Her character wakes in a rowboat adrift a lake, with no memory of how she got there — or even who she is. Her ensuing search for identity will lead her into the heart of the Geist Group, the unconventional wellness company behind the Homecoming Initiative.
Homecoming is an American psychological thriller web television series, based on the podcast of the same name created by Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg, that premiered on November 2, 2018, on Prime Video. The series was created by Horowitz and Bloomberg who also serve as writers and executive producers alongside Sam Esmail, Chad Hamilton, Julia Roberts, Alex Blumberg, Matt Lieber, and Chris Giliberti. Esmail also directed every episode of the first season, which stars Roberts, Bobby Cannavale, Stephan James, Shea Whigham, Alex Karpovsky, and Sissy Spacek.
The series was given an initial series order for two seasons, the second of which is currently in development. The second season will deviate from the podcast and feature a new story and characters. The second season will be directed by Kyle Patrick Alvarez and will star Janelle Monáe and Chris Cooper with Stephan James and Hong Chau returning from the first season. The second season is set to premiere on May 22, 2020.
