Syfy’s sophomore series Dominion is adding new characters, and a new composer as well.
Production is underway in Cape Town, South Africa for the 13-episode second season. Joining the series’ stellar cast are recurring guest stars Nic Bishop (Covert Affairs), Simon Merrells (Spartacus: War of the Damned), Christina Chong (24: Live Another Day), Olivia Mace (Doctors) and Luke Tyler (Chronicle).
In addition, Bill Brown, who scored all nine seasons of CSI: NY and countless video games (including Marvel’s Captain America: Super Soldier, for which he was nominated for Best Original Music for the orchestral/electronic hybrid at the Canadian Video Game Awards), and has been known to beta test cutting edge technology, will score the second season of Dominion, and he’ll soon be exploring the capabilities the new reissue of Moog Music’s classic synthesizers from the golden age of electronic music.
Season 2 of Dominion is set to premiere on Syfy in Summer 2015.
The first season of Dominion premiered in June 2014, and was cable’s #1 scripted program among viewers 18-49 and 25-54 in its timeslot (Live +7). Based on characters from the hit theatrical film Legion (2010), Dominion is set in a post-apocalyptic future, 25 years after an army of lower angels waged an epic war against mankind. The series follows the reluctant “Chosen One,” Alex, who must fight to save Vega (what was formerly Las Vegas) from the angels that are hell-bent on destroying humanity.
In Dominion’s second season, humanity continues its struggle against the archangel Gabriel and his army of angels. Alex journeys from Vega to the legendary city of New Delphi, a human enclave with a dark secret, hoping to secure a military alliance with its charismatic leader. Back in Vega, Claire Riesen faces a civil war, pitting her against the disgraced David Whele and his newfound rebel allies. While war rages in the few cities left on earth, Michael stumbles upon a mystery in the form of Mallory, a perfect small town seemingly untouched by mankind’s war with the angels.
Returning from Dominion’s first season are stars Christopher Egan (Kings), Tom Wisdom (300), Roxanne McKee (Game of Thrones), Alan Dale (Lost), Anthony Stewart Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Luke Allen-Gale (The Borgias) and Shavani Ghai (EastEnders).
Additionally, Carl Beukes, who has played Archangel Gabriel since the series’ pilot, will be a series regular in the series’ second season.
