For fans eager to find out what’s in store during Season 2 of the Global hit drama Mary Kills People, the wait won’t be long. Global announced that the Season 2 premiere will air Wednesday, January 3 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. For those in the U.S., a Lifetime premiere date has yet to be announced. Caroline Dhavernas, Jay Ryan, and Richard Short all return for Season 2 and are joined in the six one-hour episodes by season guest stars Rachelle Lefevre and Ian Lake. Picking up eight months after Mary (Dhavernas) and Des (Short) framed Grady (Greg Bryk) for the deaths of their patients, Mary and Des will dive deeper into their illegal work. This time around, a mysterious woman, Olivia Bloom (Lefevre), comes to them with a deadly request, unleashing a chain of events that unfolds throughout the season.
The January 3 premiere episode will find Des is happy to reteam with Mary following his stint in prison, but when a routine case leads to a devastating outcome, Mary questions whether she was better off fighting the good fight without him – in control and unchallenged.
Throughout the new season, viewers will see Mary become more entangled in her illegal work, risking her family and ER career even as she tries to keep her worlds separate and her daughters safe. But secrets can only be hidden for so long when the mysterious Olivia approaches Mary and Des with a deadly request. Then, the personal and the professional come to a head when Ben returns, knee-deep in a complicated undercover case. Ben’s investigation will collide with Mary’s criminal descent, forcing Mary to decide whether to come clean once and for all.
Here’s a few first look photos at the Season 2 cast which includes Dhavernas, Ryan, Short and Lefevre.
