If you’ve been missing Vic, Charlie Manx and Bing Partridge, AMC has some good news for you; their hit series NOS4A2 will be returning for its second season in June.

AMC announced that NOS4A2 season two will consist of ten episodes, with the fist premiering on Monday, June 1. Interestingly, the season will be simulcast on BBC America, just as season two of that network’s excellent series Killing Eve was simulcast on AMC in 2019.

If you haven’t yet seen the first season of NOS4A2, you can catch it on a variety of platforms, including AMC Premiere, Amazon Prime, Hulu and Shudder. But, here is a brief refresher on where we left off (SPOILER ALERT):

When we last saw Vic, she had just found out that her brief fling with BFF Craig left her pregnant. Though Craig was killed when evil Charlie Manx’s Rolls Royce Wraith exploded with him inside, nice boy Lou Carmody seemed more than willing to help her raise her baby.

The Wraith’s supposed demise left Manx in a coma, and Vic visited him in the hospital, promising him that she was going to burn Christmasland to the ground.

Maggie decided to work with Tabitha Hutter to find and stop Bing. When they asked the Scrabble tiles where Bing was, they answered, “HOUSE OF SLEEP TWO”.  Meanwhile, Bing somehow managed to wrangle a job at a Dentist’s office. This gives him easy access to the “gingerbread smoke” gas, so that is not going to end well.

And then, the cliffhanger that season two will most likely open with: a mechanic working on what remains of the Wraith starts the engine…and Charlie Manx awakens from his coma. Uh-oh!

Ashleigh Cummings will be returning to the role of Vic, and Zachary Quinto will be back to send chills down our spines as Charlie Manx. It seems likely that Jahkara Smith (Maggie), Olafur Darri Olafsson (Bing) and Ashley Romas (Hutter) will be back as well.
