DESCRIPTION: (from ReelzChannel's press release, February 2013) In season two, XIII (Stuart Townsend, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) is betrayed by the only person he ever trusted and finds solace living off the grid. Back in the USA after travelling the world, he stumbles upon the activist group The Veil and is seduced both by their environmental/anti-corporate/anti-globalization message and the beautiful activist Betty Barnowsky (Roxane Mesquida, Gossip Girl). When XIII is framed for bombing global conglomerate Synequanon's headquarters, he understands that he is being manipulated - he just isn't sure why or by whom. Now he's back on the radar and certain people are after him: President Carrington (Stephen McHattie, 2012) who clings to power at any cost, former National Security Adviser and now CEO of Synequanon, Colonel Samuel Amos (Greg Bryk, Immortals), and a mysterious figure, who seems to have a lot (too much, in fact) in common with XIII. XIII is pulled into an international conspiracy that threatens to unleash a new weapon to rival the atomic bomb. While unraveling this global plot, he must also confront the truth about his identity and a past he can neither remember nor escape. XIII.2 also stars Aisha Tyler (The Talk, Archer). XIII.2 is produced by Prodigy Pictures and EuropaCorp Television.
