Amazon Picks Up ‘Fortitude’ for Season 2, Adds Dennis Quaid to Cast

27 February 2017 6:05 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Amazon has picked up where now-defunct Pivot left off: The streaming service has picked up Arctic noir drama “Fortitude” for a 10-episode second season.

Season 2 on Amazon will feature an ensemble cast, including originals like Richard Dormer, Sofie Gråbøl, and Luke Treadaway, and newcomers Dennis Quaid, Parminder Nagra, Michelle Fairley, Robert Sheehan, and Ken Stott. The 10 episodes will premiere on Prime Video in the U.S. later this year.

Fortitude,” which originally aired in the U.S. on Participant Media’s Pivot cable channel, follows Sheriff Dan Anderssen (Dormer) of Fortitude, a small isolated community with a captive population in an environment that is undergoing change and upheaval due to parasite and pathogen activity. After shooting the woman he loved, Dan becomes consumed with guilt, disappears into the wilderness and was presumed dead. A new body is discovered on the other side of town and Eric must step up and lead this horrific investigation. As »

‘Fortitude 2×04′ Review

28 January 2017 10:07 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Sofie Gråbøl, Richer Dormer, Dennis Quaid, Michelle Fairley, Robert Sheehan, Edvin Endre, Parminder Nagra | Created by Simon Donald

Just when you thought Fortitude couldn’t get any stranger, episode 4 of series two takes things to new levels. An eyeless man stalking the town, a new Shaman in town and gravedigging all adding up to bring all the mysteries together, with a dose of Russian conspiracy just to add to the drama.

After the events of last episode, we are treated to an explanation as to what has been going on with the wild animals, at least the reindeer which was discovered being experimented on. Seemingly used to create a drug (in the form of the so-called reindeer juice) this discovery also reveals the man, who will probably be the prime suspect, though we still don’t know who he is just yet. What also is discovered is more details »

‘Fortitude 2×03′ Review

27 January 2017 10:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Sofie Gråbøl, Richer Dormer, Dennis Quaid, Michelle Fairley, Robert Sheehan, Edvin Endre, Parminder Nagra | Created by Simon Donald

We’re now three episodes in to Fortitude‘s second series and there is one thing we can be sure of: any semblance of normality has now been lost… With characters that were seemingly at death’s door now waking up, and people being decapitated, it seems that answers to what is going on may be being revealed.

The problem with this is though, there may be clues but no definite answer. A hint does seem to be in the tests Dr Sarinda Khatri (Paraminder Nagra) is doing on a comatose patient that don’t seem to be ethical. Especially when her prognosis of the patient being beyond waking up doesn’t seem to be the truth. Hildur Odegard (Sofie Gråbøl) now seemingly ousted from her job as governor also takes »

‘Fortitude 2×02′ Review

26 January 2017 10:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Sofie Gråbøl, Richer Dormer, Dennis Quaid, Michelle Fairley, Robert Sheehan, Edvin Endre, Parminder Nagra | Created by Simon Donald

In the first episode of Fortitude‘s second series we were given the groundwork for what we can expect in this latest chapter of the story of the “safest place on Earth.” Hardly safe though, we seem to have a story of cannibals and demons, and with a missing head still somewhere in the town, what other secrets will episode two reveal?

One of the most interesting things we find in this episode is that Dr. Sarinda Khatri (Parminder Nagra) is still experimenting with one of the wasps which caused so many problems in the first season. Now that the sheriff is back though, the investigations as to who the headless man is are making some progress. With Michael Lennox (Dennis Quaid) trying to salvage his boat and his livelihood, it »

‘Fortitude 2×01′ Review

25 January 2017 9:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Sofie Gråbøl, Richer Dormer, Dennis Quaid, Michelle Fairley, Robert Sheehan, Edvin Endre, Parminder Nagra | Created by Simon Donald

Fortitude first caught my attention when it was advertised on television, with the town’s governor making the statement that it was the safest town on Earth. This of course wasn’t true, as murder and chaos soon take hold. Now as we move to the second season of Fortitude, and its first episode, we return to the town and a fresh murder not surprisingly introduces us to the next chapter…

After the events of Fortitude: Season 1, the people of Fortitude are still dealing with the fallout, including Governor Hildur Odegard (Sofie Gråbøl). When a decapitated body is discovered in the snow, it appears the town once again has a murderer at large. With strange things going on including mutilation of dogs and tension with the fishing community, everything is »
