“The News Is Heating Up” In ‘The Hour’ Season 2 Extended Trailer

The Hour BBC

Affairs, police corruption, jail– exactly what kind of trouble has Hector (Dominic West) gotten himself into? The new extended trailer for season two of BBC America’s The Hour, makes it clear the handsome newsman is courting disaster. Hector’s troubles appear to be affecting everyone, including Bel (Romola Garai) and Freddie (Ben Whishaw), who may have differing opinions about their co-worker’s innocence.

Expect scandal to abound in season two, which will be set in 1957, and see the introduction of a new Head of News in the form of The Thick of It‘s Peter Capaldi. Our intrepid trio of reporters will be facing all manner of temptation as the ’50s begin to wind down. Watch the trailer below and let us know if you’re ready to tune back in to The Hour.

Season two of The Hour premieres Wednesday, Nov. 28 at 9/8c on BBC America.
