From a media release:
Super ChannelÂ is pleased to announce that it has set a premiere date for the highly anticipated second season of the critically acclaimed Canadian Mennonite drug drama,Â Pure.Â The dramatic saga of Noah Funkâ€™s double life will return onÂ Tuesday, May 28 at 10 p.m. ETÂ exclusivelyÂ in CanadaÂ on Super Channel Fuse.Â Each episode will also be available on Super Channel On Demand, the day following its linear broadcast premiere. Subscribers can also catch up on all the drama of season one ofÂ Pure, available now on Super Channel on Demand.
The six-episode sophomore season of the Super Channel original production, which was shot on location in Nova Scotia, stars CanadiansÂ Ryan RobbinsÂ (Arrow,Â The Killing) andÂ Alex Paxton-BeesleyÂ (The Strain,Â Murdoch Mysteries), withÂ Alyson HanniganÂ (How I Met Your Mother,Â American Pie,Â Buffy the Vampire Slayer) joining the cast as a recurring guest star.
Season two picks up with Anna Funk (Paxton-Beesley) going it alone after Noah (Robbins) disappeared for a year.Â In an attempt to shield her children from the familyâ€™s involvement with the drug cartel, Anna finds herself in the very center of the drug ring she and Noah attempted to take down.
The series takes us deep inside a closed, secretive subculture through the eyes of a conflicted, good-hearted man trying to protect his family and preserve his faith.Â Inspired by true events,Â PureÂ is the journey of Noah Funk, a newly elected Mennonite pastor, who is determined to rid his community of the scourge of drugs and its nefarious ties to a trans-border smuggling alliance with ruthless Mexican cocaine cartels.Â Just when he thinks he’s won, Noah and his wife Anna are thrust headlong into a desperate world of violence, greed, and betrayal.
PureÂ is produced by Two East Productions and Cineflix in association with Super Channel, WGN America, Hulu and the CBC.Â The series is created by Michael Amo (The Listener)Â with Amo and director Ken Girotti (Orphan Black,Â Vikings) serving as executive producers for the second season, along with Brett Burlock, Peter Emerson and David MacLeod (Call Me Fitz,Â Haven).Â Cineflix Rights has the exclusive worldwide distribution rights toÂ Pure.
