Marvel has hyped all the fans by announcing Wolverine: The Lost Trail, the season that will follow Wolverine: The Long Night.
Wolverine: The Long Night is all set to run for a total of 10 episodes and will be available to all the fans on Stitcher Premium by 2019.
Richard Armitage is set to return for reprising his role as the character, Logan in season 2 and joining him will be Bill Irwin (Jason Wyngard-Mastermind), Bell Heck (Remy LeBeau-Gambit), and also Blair Brown (Bonnie Roach).
This is the synopsis:
“Marvel’s Wolverine: The Lost Trail is an epic quest that takes place in the Louisiana bayou. Following the events of Marvel’s Wolverine: The Long Night, Logan (Richard Armitage) returns to New Orleans in search of redemption, only to discover that his ex-lover, Maureen is nowhere to be found. And she’s not the only one. Dozens of humans and mutants have gone missing, including the mother of a teenage boy, Marcus Baptiste. With Weapon X in close pursuit, Logan and Marcus must team up and follow a trail of clues that leads them deep into the gothic heart of the bayou, where they encounter biker gangs, Cajun thieves and a world of wonders that defies explanation. It is here that they find Greenhaven — a backwater refuge run by a powerful mutant named Jason Wyngarde.”
“After seeing the overwhelming support for Marvel’s Wolverine: The Long Night, we are excited to introduce listeners to another unique audio storytelling experience,” said Dan Buckley, president of Marvel, in a statement. “Marvel’s Wolverine: The Lost Trail will continue expanding Logan’s story and introduce more elements of the Marvel Universe. We look forward to expanding our content for Marvel fans and the scripted podcast community.”
“Fans reacted so powerfully and positively to season one that we really had no choice–we had to keep the story and the characters alive (well, most of them) for another season,” Chris Bannon, the chief content officer of Stitcher had said.
“Fortunately, the outstanding creative team that made season one so memorable signed on right away! And I couldn’t hope for a better cast of great voices, including Richard Armitage as Logan. Together, they’re making a story Marvel fans will listen to over and over, I know.”
The writer of Wolverine: The Long Night, Ben Percy, the director, Brendan Baker, and also the sound designer, Chloe Prasinos will be coming back for season 2. Wolverine: The Lost Trail is set to be produced by Chloe Wilson and Daniel Fink.
Wolverine: The Long Night had been Marvel’s very first adventure into fictional podcasts.
