SEATTLE - Feb. 15, 2017 - (NASDAQ: AMZN) - Season two of the Amazon Original Series Hand of God will premiere on Prime Video on March 10.

Created and written by Ben Watkins (Burn Notice), Hand of God returns with Golden Globe winner Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy), starring as Judge Pernell Harris. The hard-living, law-bending king of San Vicente, "Judge Maximum" has finally hit bottom as he faces trial for the murder of a cop. While his visions and the ghost of his son will slowly lead Pernell through a conspiracy that is bigger than he could have imagined, they will threaten his relationship with his wife and everything he holds dear. This season, Judge Maximum must fight on two fronts - to restore his sanity and gain his freedom.
Hand of God also stars Dana Delany (Body of Proof) as the Judge's estranged wife Crystal Harris, who is on a mission to secure her son's legacy, Andre Royo (The Wire) as the gregarious, smart-yet-slick mayor Robert 'Bobo' Boston, Garret Dillahunt (Justified) as KD, the born-again sociopath whose violent tendencies are exploited by Pernell, Emayatzy Corinealdi (Roots) as Pernell's former call girl and confidante Tessie, Alona Tal (Supernatural) as Pernell's grieving daughter-in-law Jocelyn Harris, Julian Morris (Pretty Little Liars) as the morally questionable preacher Paul Curtis, and Elizabeth McLaughlin (Betrayal) as the preacher's sultry girlfriend, Alicia.
This season the all-star cast is joined by Linda Gray (Dallas), Nia Long (The Best Man) and Brian Baumgartner (The Office).
