“We’re thrilled to be working with Playmaker and Sony for the return of this award-winning Stan Original Series,” said Stan’s Chief Content Officer, Nick Forward.
“With Glen’s vision, Greg and Sian’s direction, and the return of Jacki Weaver, Bryan Brown and Phoebe Tonkin, alongside an incredible line up of new characters, Bloom season 2 is set to deliver audiences another captivating season in 2020.”
The first season of the 6-part mystery drama told the story of a strange plant that grows in a small country town after a terrible flood kills five locals.
The berries emanating from the plant have the power to restore youth, which leaves the characters with the decision of whether or not they’d wanna revisit their past.
