‘Underground’ returns to WGN with Harriet Tubman leading the way


If you’re a fan of WGN’s “Underground,” you’ll be happy to know Season 2 begins at 9 p.m. Wednesday. This riveting hour-long drama follows the journeys of enslaved African Americans on their way to freedom.

On the brink of Civil War, the struggle for freedom in the United States is dangerous.

And if you thought Season 1 couldn’t be any better, Harriet Tubman appears in Season 2, leading the way through the historic Underground Railroad.



This series garnered rave reviews for its storytelling and perspective. Unlike other slave narratives, the show examines the constant fight for a revolution instead of the downtrodden struggle of the enslaved.

If you’ve missed the first season, WGN will air Season 1 in a marathon beginning at 11 a.m. Wednesday. Set your DVR!
