Atlantis goes to war in first trailer for darker second series

Jack Donnelly, Robert Emms, Mark Addy and Sarah Parish appear in the return of the BBC1 fantasy series from the makers of Merlin

Atlantis is back this November with a new, darker look. The fantasy drama ended on a cliffhanger at the end of last series with the revelation that Pasiphae (Sarah Parish) is secretly Jason’s mother.


So, what can we expect from series two? This first trailer gives a few crucial clues, with Ariadne crowned Queen of Atlantis following the death of her father but she has a familiar foe to battle.

Robert Emms (who plays Pythagoras) and Mark Addy (Hercules) also appear in the action-packed trailer with the city’s fate lying in their hands. Take a look below…
