Black Snow Returning with Second Season


Goalpost Pictures has begun filming a second season of Black Snow, distributed globally by All3Media International, for Stan.

The new six-part season will see Travis Fimmel (Vikings) reprise his role as Detective Cormack, who will tackle two separate missing persons cases. One sees him investigate the disappearance of a 21-year-old who vanished from her own birthday party in 2003, and the other follows him in a desperate search for his own younger brother.

New cast members joining the series are Jana McKinnon (Bad Behaviour), Megan Smart (Class of ’07), Alana Mansour (Erotic Stories), Dan Spielman (Bad Behaviour, The Newsreader), Victoria Haralabidou (The Tourist) and Kat Stewart (Offspring).

Director Sian Davies (The Gloaming), executive producer Rosemary Blight (The Invisible Man) and series creator Lucas Taylor (Harrow) are returning to the series, while Helena Brooks (Population 11) is joining as director. Season one lead actor Talijah Blackman-Corowa joins the second season as director’s attachment.

The brand-new season is produced in association with All3Media International and AMC Networks’ streamer Sundance Now with financial support from Screen Queensland, Screen NSW and the City of Gold Coast.

“Following the enormous success of the first season of Black Snow, we are thrilled to be working with the team at Goalpost Pictures and the incredible cast, led by Travis, on another gripping season,” said Cailah Scobie, chief content officer at Stan. “We thank our partners at Screen NSW, Screen Queensland, the City of Gold Coast and All3Media and look forward to sharing the new season with audiences soon.”

“I think Australian film and television has never been stronger,” Fimmel commented. “Now, with the addition of streaming networks and their reach, I’m so proud that our local productions and their hard work can be recognized not only here but around the world. I’m excited to be a part of another season of Black Snow and showing off what Australians have to offer. That, and I’m happy to have free food and a job.”

Blight, executive producer, said, “We are thrilled to be working with Stan again and back in Queensland filming the second season of Black Snow. The audience response in Australia and around the world to series one was incredible, and we can’t wait to bring this new story with this wonderful group of actors to the screen—including Travis Fimmel, who is once again utterly compelling in the role of Cormack.”

“We are proud to support the second season of this internationally acclaimed series created by Queensland’s Lucas Taylor,” added Jacqui Feeney, CEO of Screen Queensland. “Black Snow is infused with the unique communities and landscapes of the sunshine state and is also providing vital career paths for emerging Queensland creatives and crew through our attachment program.”

Kyas Hepworth, head of Screen NSW, commented, “Following the groundbreaking first season of Black Snow, Screen NSW are delighted to support the next installment, produced by renowned NSW-based company Goalpost Pictures, who continue to bring this strong, distinctive Australian drama to global audiences.”
