Fortitude Season 2 trailer arrives

The first trailer for Fortitude Season 2 has arrived.
Airing in the ad break of the Game of Thrones Season 6 finale, the teaser gives us our first glimpse of the return of Sky Atlantic’s original show, which premiered last year.
The horror thriller set against the striking Arctic wilderness is from Fifty Fathoms, the makers of the BAFTA-winning Marvellous, and is co-produced by Pivot, with filming taking place in Iceland and the UK. Combining Broadchurch, The Thing, we praised the show in our reviews for its sinister atmosphere, strong cast and unpredictable, gruesome twists. You can catch up with our reviews here, or watch it through Sky On Demand or NOW.
Fortitude Season 2 starts in January 2017, with new cast member Dennis Quaid joining an ensemble that includes returning star Sofie Gråbøl (The Killing).
Set to the music of Björk’s It’s Oh So Quiet, the trailer shows a calm and collected Michael Lennox (Quaid) motionless in a frosted car and later, an anxious Governor Odegard (Gråbøl) standing alone in a snow-covered Fortitude poised with a flickering flashlight. The trailer eludes to new threats which face the residents of the isolated Arctic town.
Zai Bennett, Director of Sky Atlantic, comments: “After the chilling events in the first series this terrifying trailer gives Sky Atlantic viewers a glimpse as to what they can expect when this thrilling Sky original drama returns in January. Once again, it is definitely not going to be ‘Oh So Quiet’ in Fortitude!”
