From recent tweet pictures, it looks like Berlin Station season 2 is in production in Berlin–with the exquisitely talented British actor Richard Armitage back to anchor the show (I hope he’ll be in all of the episodes, cause that’s why I’m watching it):

We know that Keke Palmer (below) is new to the Station as a “young case officer” April Lewis, and thanks to her for sharing the read through pix.
And Ashley Judd (below top) will also join the cast as stated by her tweet and confirmed by Berlin Station’s tweet (below bottom); according to Variety, her character name will be BB Yates, the new Station Chief:
And Tamlyn Tomita who portrayed Sandra Abe has indicated that she won’t be back. So I wonder about who will be back from the other main cast from last season:
Rhys Ifans who was revealed as the mole leak Thomas Shaw in season 1: Will he go on the run as Berlin Station has yet other looming crises to resolve? Or will he just fade away to grieve over Claire?
Richard Jenkins and Caroline Goodall: As the former Station Chief and his wife, will they retire to provence, or some cushy prison nearby?
And what of Daniel Miller’s and Esther Krug’s romance? Will it sizzle up again now that she is heading up the German spy network in Berlin? What’s a little pillow talk between spies? Or is there competition brewing for Daniel’s attention and bedding? With Ms. Judd’s character addition, perhaps? That would be a cat fight of epic proportions. Ha!
But I really wonder what over arching plot arc are we going to see in season 2? Berlin Station as a “character” in the show has to repair its image and reputation amongst its various nation spies. So what better way to do that than to uncover, prevent, resolve, etc., international incidents. What those international incidents might be is anyone’s guess.
So, onward, upward, and looking forward to Berlin Station 2!
P.S. Thanks to the following for also sharing the images above: Moose Turds, Ashley Judd, Keke Palmer, Berlin Station, and TeresaA and others that slip my brain at the moment.
