Sooo, you can read the official Sundance Now press release below, or you can get our take on Season 2; Matthew (Matthew Goode) and Diana (Teresa Palmer) jump back in time then change…into really cool clothes, while in search of The Book of Life.


  • Matt and Diana heat up – figuratively and actually – when Diana comes into her power and Matthew becomes all the rage *wink*.
  • Hottie Marcus (Ed Bluemel) gets even hotter when beautiful Pheobe (Adelle Leonce) enters the scene(s).
  • Christopher Marlow (Tom Hughes) is all in his feelings…a man born to have sense shaken into him!
  • Aunt Em (Valarie Pettiford) is pure magic.
  • Phillippe (James Purefoy) is…*sigh* keeping it PG
  • And Gallowglass (Steven Cree) … our beloved Gallowglass…in all his hair and badassness glory *swoon*.
  • Oh and beautiful sets, breathtaking locations, spine tingling baby-making music* (as if Rob Lane‘s isn’t emotive enough), and costumes that are out of this world (1590 to be precise).

*baby-making music (with a hypnotic video)

As if Marcus (Ed Bluemel) isn’t sexy enough, they had to throw in this background music….have mercy.
