After astounding success of Departure 1 Lionsgate Play releases Departure 2a

 Departure, a high-octane
conspiracy series that followed the mystery of Flight 716 -
a passenger plane that vanished over the Atlantic Ocean
had received a tremendous success and viewership
amongst the audience when it released. The series returns
with a bang with Departure Season 2 which will
exclusively be premiered on Lionsgate Play, the
premium streaming service on Friday, 22 nd October 2021 in
India. Written by Vincent Shiao, the cast includes Archie
Panjabi, Christopher Plummer, Chris Holden-Ried and
Mark Rendall in the lead. The series has received IMDb rating of 7.2. Lionsgate Play app can
be downloaded on Google Play Store, Apple app store and Amazon Firestick at a monthly
and yearly subscription of INR 99 and INR 699 respectively.
The new season follows Kendra Malley (Archie Panjabi) as she's recruited to investigate
the derailment of an experimental high-speed train in rural Michigan while travelling
between Toronto and Chicago. Pressure mounts for Kendra and her team to crack the
puzzle as the small town reels in shock, and the world demands answers. Their
investigation reveals a plethora of disconnected events and a range of potential suspects
with believable motives; a disillusioned employee, a local anti-technology politician, a tech
mogul who developed the train’s software and a man with ties to a Mexican drug cartel. As
she works to sort through the chaos, Kendra has to reckon with the inner tension that
emerges between the investigation and her emotions.
Below are some positive reviews received for both the seasons-
Reason Online- “The second season is still well-plotted and satisfyingly mysterious as long as
you're new to all this. On the other hand, the first season is better written and has Plummer.”
Stuff- “If ever there was a time to watch a show about a plane disappearing with 255 souls on
board during a global pandemic that has stopped most air travel, this is it.”
Variety- “A drama that will hook those who seek from their viewing a charge of adrenaline, if
not always the most rigorously challenging of mysteries.”
