AMAZON has announced the start date for the second season of You Are Wanted with six new episodes. The new episodes of the thriller series with Matthias Schweighöfer will be available on Prime Video from 18 May 2018, initially in Germany and Austria. You Are Wanted is the most-streamed series on Amazon’s video-streaming service in Germany and Austria and also the series with the most five-star customer reviews.
“After the huge success of the first season, I couldn’t wait to keep telling Lukas Franke’s story. I am very proud to show the second season of You Are Wanted to the whole world”, says Matthias Schweighöfer. “The new episodes see Lukas Franke in increasing danger, under an ever greater threat: He thought he had regained control of his life. But you can’t turn back the clock.”
“After the outstanding global success of the first season, we want to break records with the second and entertain even more people around the world with our product. It’s crazy how many enthusiastic reactions to our series we have received so far from all over the world”, says Dan Maag, CEO of PANTAFLIX AG.
No break for Lukas Franke – with the data collecting monster program "Burning Man" he seemed to have held his fate back in his own hands. But now the nightmare is starting over again. His memory: deleted. "Burning Man": gone. His family: in danger. Lukas is on the run again. All-powerful intelligence services, international criminals, hackers and activists with their very own idea of a better world want to own "Burning Man" and open the hunt for the family father. His only chance is to retrieve the most powerful cyber weapon in the world.
This time, top actress Jessica Schwarz (Das Lied in mir), the Dutch shooting star Hannah Hoekstra (App) and the experienced American actor Michael Landes (Burlesque) join the ensemble cast led by the stars Matthias Schweighöfer and Alexandra Maria Lara. The Prime Original’s returning cast includes Catrin Striebeck (Zwischen den Jahren) Katrin Bauerfeind (Bauerfeind assistiert ...), Aleksandar Jovanovic (Tempel) and Jörg Pintsch (Rote Rosen).
