From a media release:
CBC and Temple Street Productions announce the start of production on season 2 of original series X Company, an emotionally driven adventure drama set in the thrilling and dangerous world of WWII espionage and covert operations. Returning this season is the international ensemble cast including Evelyne Brochu, Jack Laskey, Hugh Dillon, Warren Brown, Dustin Milligan, Connor Price and Lara Jean Chorostecki. Season 1 of X Company premiered on CBC Television February 18, 2015 to more than one million viewers.
Season 2 begins with the team on the ground in German-occupied France, two men down, virtually cut off from all communications with Camp X. Tom (Dustin Milligan) has been shot, leaving Aurora (Evelyne Brochu), Neil (Warren Brown) and Harry (Connor Price) to deal with the chaotic aftermath of Alfred (Jack Laskey) being captured by the Gestapo.
The team is reeling, scrambling to recover. Aurora is devastated by Alfred’s capture, Harry blames himself for exposing the entire team to an enemy agent, Neil’s ability to fight is compromised by having to kill a German friend and Tom’s life is hanging in the balance. Alfred, with his perfect memory, was always a perfect target for the Germans, and was never supposed to be taken alive. Why didn’t Aurora take the shot when she had the chance? Meanwhile, back at Camp X, Sinclair (Hugh Dillon) realizes he’ll have to take unprecedented risks to get Alfred out before he breaks under torture. And Krystina (Lara Jean Chorostecki), fighting to control the damage, learns that the timing could not be worse: the Allies are depending on their secret agents to help lay the groundwork for an invasion of Occupied France.
Season 2’s 10-episode, one-hour drama shoots on location in Budapest, Hungary until November 2015, and is set to air on CBC in early 2016.
