SEASON TWO OF CBS ALL ACCESS' "STRANGE ANGEL" TO PREMIERE THURSDAY, JUNE 13
New Episodes of "Strange Angel" Will Be Released Weekly on Thursdays
Exclusively for CBS All Access Subscribers
NEW YORK, N.Y. - April 18, 2019 - Get ready for more sex, magick and rocket science. CBS All Access today debuted a teaser trailer for the second season of its original series STRANGE ANGEL, and announced the series will return on Thursday, June 13. The period drama explores the bizarre true story of Jack Parsons, a man who straddled the worlds of science and the occult, pioneering America's rocketry program while simultaneously practicing sex magick rituals as a devotee to Aleister Crowley's religion, Thelema.
At the conclusion of STRANGE ANGEL's first season, Jack and his team from Caltech made a scientific breakthrough that secured the military's interest as the country neared the brink of war. In season two, the U.S. is fully engaged in World War II, transforming Jack's rocketry work into a lucrative business and further entrenching him in the military-industrial complex. While Jack's career takes off, he and his wife Susan's devotion to their new occult religion grows, leading them to invite the sex cult into their Pasadena mansion and Jack to forge a personal relationship with the group's notorious founder, Aleister Crowley himself.
The entire first season of STRANGE ANGEL is currently available to binge on CBS All Access. The cast includes Jack Reynor, Rupert Friend, Bella Heathcote and Peter Mark Kendall. Angus Macfadyen joins the cast in season two as Aleister Crowley.
STRANGE ANGEL, created by Mark Heyman ("Black Swan," "The Skeleton Twins") and based on George Pendle's book of the same name, is inspired by the real-life story of Jack Parsons and explores the dramatic intersection between genius and madness, science and science fiction.
The series is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Scott Free Productions. Mark Heyman, David DiGilio, Ridley Scott and David W. Zucker serve as executive producers. Clayton Krueger serves as co-executive producer.
