WATCH: Thrills come thick and fast in new trailer for Fortitude season two
The first trailer for the second season of Fortitude has been released online ahead of its television premiere tonight.
Set to air during the season finale of Game of Thrones, the trailer offers the first glimpse at what fans can expect from the new series of Fortitude early next year. It’s the first time we’ve seen new cast member Dennis Quaid in character as Michael Lennox, alongside series one star Sofie Gråbøl as Governor Odegard.
The trailer begins with the far-too-quiet Arctic landscape of Fortitude, before panning to Lennox alone in a snow-covered car. Governor Odegard is then shown anxiously searching for something using a flashlight. There is a moment to admire to snow-covered beauty of Fortitude, complete with Björk’s ‘It’s oh so quiet’ playing softly in the background, before the trailer takes a chilling turn and thrills come in like a blizzard. There are new threats, new characters and new bodies to bury.
Speaking about the release of the new trailer, Director of Sky Atlantic Zai Bennett said: “After the chilling events in the first series this terrifying trailer gives Sky Atlantic viewers a glimpse as to what they can expect when this thrilling Sky original drama returns in January. Once again, it is definitely not going to be ‘Oh So Quiet’ in Fortitude!”
