The first season of “Chance,” Hulu’s finely crafted mystery-thriller starring Hugh Laurie, focused on one doctor’s quest to understand his own dangerous desires. He lived on the edge by studying not only his patients, but his own reactions to their plight.
Well, he’s reached a diagnosis. Eldon Chance’s (Laurie) hesitancy to dive headfirst into the dark, deep water of a criminal underworld, well, that’s gone. He’s jumping in with both feet, and he really likes getting wet.
“Chance” is based on the book by Kem Nunn and was developed for Hulu by Nunn and Alexandra Cunningham. “Room” director Lenny Abrahamson directed the pilot and serves as an executive producer in Season 2.
The second season consists of 10 hour-long episodes, promises more action, and features a fresh new adversary in Paul Schneider. Season 2 co-stars Stefania Owen, Greta Lee, Clarke Peters, and Brian Goodman. Laurie serves as executive producer alongside Abrahamson, Cunningham, Nunn, Michael London, Nelson McCormick, Jonas Pate, and Brian Grazer.
Here’s Season 2’s official synopsis from Hulu:
Eldon Chance (Laurie), the paper pushing neuropsychiatrist has given way to a different kind of pusher: a man willing to push back at the broken system. When he is coerced into helping Detective Hynes take down a serial killer, Chance finds himself “laying in the nest” of the killer, in a dangerous game to prove the man guilty. His reckless behavior also puts him at odds with D (Suplee), who has begun to question the black-and-white nature of his own vigilantism. When the walls of the system collapse in on him, Chance is forced to reassess his life’s work and questions if violence is really the answer.
“Chance” Season 2 premieres Wednesday, October 11 on Hulu. Watch the trailer below.
