Heading into its intense, spellbinding second season, the hit psychosomatic thriller catches up with a healthy and healed Ryan Hardy a year after the tragic events of last season.
Following a horrific new murder spree, the FBI calls on Ryan and Mike Weston to speak with the lone survivor, Lily Gray, in order to help them solve the case.
