Amazon has renewed Undone for a second season.
From acclaimed creators Kate Purdy and Raphael Bob-Waksberg (BoJack Horseman), Undone is a groundbreaking and genre-bending series about a young woman’s complex journey to unlock her past and solve the mystery of her father’s death.
Alma Winograd-Diaz (Rosa Salazar, Alita: Battle Angel) takes her mundane life one day at a time until a near fatal accident induces visions of her late-father, Jacob. Through these persistent visions he urges her to tap into a mysterious ability that allows her to travel through space and time with the hopes of preventing his untimely death. This quest challenges Alma’s relationships and brings into question her mental wellbeing with those closest to her.
Undone is brought to life using rotoscope animation, a process that was used in Richard Linklater’s A Scanner Darkly but has never before been used in episodic television.
“Amazon’s profoundly moving drama is packed with grand ideas, big emotions and stunning animation,” we wrote in our review of Season 1.
Now, within a couple of months of its debut on Amazon Prime Video, Amazon Studios has ordered a second run of the drama.
Albert Cheng, co-head of television and COO at Amazon Studios, said in a statement: “Undone is beautifully done in every sense of the word, aesthetically and emotionally, and we’re very happy Undone will return.”
Undone is available to watch online on Amazon Prime Video as part of a Prime membership or a £5.99 monthly subscription.
