PBS Distribution is headed back to Mercy Street this winter.
Mercy Street: Season 2 will be released on Tuesday, Feb. 14. It will be released on DVD (MSRP $39.99) and Blu-ray (MSRP $49.99).
The hit Civil War serial drama’s second season picks up right where its first season left off in its debut season, starting with the Seven Days’ Battle and ending at Antietam. Audiences are also taken along for the ride as Dr. Foster, Nurse Mary and the Mansion House Staff try to balance their personal and work lives.
The show’s writers didn’t forget about the Green Family in Season Two, either. The Green family is back again, and the growing black population in Alexandria comes into play in Season Two, too along with so much more.
While many familiar faces return for Season Two, a number of new faces come into the series, story, too. Patina Miller (Pippin, Madam Secretary, the Hunger Games – Mockingjay: Part 1 & 2) debuts in Season Two as former slave turned abolitionist Charlotte Jenkins.
Brian F. O’Bynre also makes his debut in Season Two. He comes on board as abolitionist Allan Pinkerton, based on the real-life Allan Pinkerton. Pinkerton is also head of the Union Intelligence Service.
Also debuting in Mercy Street’s second season are Bryce Pinkham (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, The Heidi Chronicles), Lyne Renee (Of Kings and Prophets, Strike Back, The Hippopotamus), Chris Wood (The Carrie Diaries, Vampire Diaries), William Mark McCullough (Underground) and Nyambi Nyambi (Mike & Molly).
The cast returning for the series’ second season includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead (BrainDead, 10 Cloverfield Lane, The Returned, The Spectacular Now), Josh Radnor (How I Met Your Mother, Liberal Arts, Disgraced), Gary Cole (Veep, The Good Wife, Enterourage) and many others.
