After a critically acclaimed season one, which garnered a 100% Certified Fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes, “Counterpart” is back for a 10-episode second season featuring new series regular Betty Gabriel (Get Out, “Westworld”) as “Naya Temple” as well as Emmy®-winning actor James Cromwell (“American Horror Story: Asylum,” “Six Feet Under”) appearing in a recurring role as “Yanek.” . “Counterpart” was created by Justin Marks (The Jungle Book) who serves as executive producer and who will make his directorial debut on the series this season.
At the Office of Interchange, those who have high-enough access safeguard a crossing into a parallel dimension, not unlike our own. And if their world is like ours, who are we over there? Are we better? Are we different? Season Two finds Howard and his counterpart living out these questions. With the Crossing closed and each of them stranded in the other’s world, they both have to adapt for survival. Howard Prime takes on his other’s life: going to his job, living in his home — with his wife. Howard Alpha is locked in a mysterious black site known as Echo, cut off from everyone he knows. As a cold war escalates between worlds, deepening a fickle divide, both men find themselves growing increasingly like their other.
