Fans of ‘Wolverine: The Long Night‘ are going to be thrilled that Marvel and Stitcher are returning for a second outing in ‘Wolverine: The Lost Trail’! Richard Armitage will be reprising his role as Logan in the second season of this scripted podcast. The second season will be a 10-season run and like the first will be exclusively available on Stitcher Premium to start with before eventually trickling down onto other streaming services. The release date is slated for the winter of 2019.
Here is the synopsis for the upcoming season which will give us a slightly warmer climate for Logan and with a new setting involved should make for a different type of adventure:
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.
While not known for cameos of other famous mutants, being set in the Louisiana bayou it should come as no surprise that Remy Etienne LeBeau will appear. Wolverine having to mess around with Gambit just sounds like it would make for a fun experience to listen to!
According to President of Marvel Dan Buckley:
“After seeing the overwhelming support for Marvel’s ‘Wolverine: The Long Night,’ we are excited to introduce listeners to another unique audio storytelling experience. 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.”
Joining Armitage in the voice cast will be Bill Irwin (‘Legion’) as Jason Wyngarde, Bill Heck (‘The Ballad of Buster Scruggs’) as Remy LeBeau, and Blair Brown (‘Orange is the New Black’) as Bonnie Roach.
Chief Content Officer of Stitcher Chris Bannon added:
“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. 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.”
Much of the behind-the-scenes crew from the first season will also be involved including, “Award-winning comic book author Ben Percy (“The Dark Net,” “Red Moon”), director Brendan Baker (“Wolverine: The Long Night”) sound designer Chloe Prasinos (“Wolverine: The Long Night”) will return the series, produced by Daniel Fink and Chloe Wilson of Marvel and Jenny Radelet of Stitcher.”
