Amazon has released the official trailer for season 2 of the Prime Video original series, Homecoming. The series is based on a scripted podcast of the same name, created by Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg. Season 1 told the story of the Homecoming Traditional Support Center – an organization tasked with reacclimating war veterans into society.
While Julia Roberts was featured as the show’s lead, she was only committed to the first season of a two-season deal with Amazon, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Actress-singer Janelle Monáe will star as the lead for season 2.

The official synopsis provided by Amazon Prime reads:
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.
The second season finds Stephan James reprising his role as Walter Cruz, who is trying to build a new life following the traumas of war and the Homecoming Initiative, when he begins to realize that there’s an even more insidious version of the program underway – if only he can remember. Hong Chau returns as Audrey Temple, an anonymous underling at Geist who finds herself thrust into unexpected positions at the top of the corporate ladder. Joining the cast for season Two are Oscar-winner Chris Cooper as Leonard Geist, the company’s eccentric founder; and Emmy-winner Joan Cusack as Francine Bunda, an equally eccentric military woman.
The second season of Homecoming will be available on Prime Video May 22. Excited for this one? Let us know in the comments.
