The Looming Tower Season 2: Release Date, Cast, Trailer, Spoilers & News

‘The Looming Tower’ became an internet sensation with its gritty and realistic exploration of radical Islamic terrorism in the early 2000s. The now deceased Kingpin, Osama Bin Laden’s monopoly and influence over global matters takes precedence in the first season of the show. Jeff Daniels led the cast with yet another outstanding performance. The question that remains now is whether or not the series will be renewed for a season two. Indications until now have been positive but with no definite announcements. Here’s all that we know about the second season.

The Looming Tower Season 2 Release Date: When is it coming out?

Advertising any television series as “limited” almost seems insignificant. Any series that is well-received does get renewed for another season (see: Big Little Lies. Also, only if ‘Band of Brothers’ was premiered). Due to its universal critical appraisal and strong reception from the audience, it will definitely come back for a season two. In fact Variety reports that the creators behind The Looming Tower have already started planning a second season, even though a follow-up has not yet been ordered.

The Looming Tower Season 2 Cast: Who is in it?

Jeff Daniels seems to have had developed quite a liking for television. The veteran actor, best known for his crazy role in the ‘Dumb and Dumber’ franchise, has had starring roles in critically acclaimed series and has won many accolades for his magnetic performances. ‘The Newsroom’, ‘Godless’, and now ‘The Looming Tower’ cement his place as one of the most consistent and prolific performers on the small screen right now. He will lead the cast again for season two and will be joined by Peter SaarsgardWrenn Schmidt, who’ll take their respective positions on the “Alec Station”. New members have not been confirmed yet by the producers and it remains to be seen who’ll be a new face in season two.

The Looming Tower Season 2 Plot: What is it about?

‘The Looming Tower’ follows the rising “threat of Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida in the late ’90s and how a rivalry between the FBI and CIA during the time period may have inadvertently set the path for the attacks of 9/11. The series follows members of the I-49 Squad in New York and Alec Station in Washington, D.C. — the counter-terrorism divisions of the FBI and CIA, respectively- as they travel around the world, fighting for ownership of information while seemingly working toward a common goal of preventing an imminent attack on American soil.” The award-winning series is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book of the same name by the great Lawrence Wright.

It seems pretty clear from the first season that information will play a vital role. Vaserys, as always, is proven right. Season two will see the battle for information continue as the action hots up. More to come as we hear.
