Canadian – Australian animated The Deep has its world premiere of Season Two on ABC ME next week.
In episode one The Nektons try to stop a fallen satellite’s fuel from polluting a marine sanctuary. But someone else is interested in the satellite: Alpheus Benthos, who is intent on finding Lemuria before them.
Based on the award-winning Australian graphic novels, The Deep follows the adventures of the Nekton family – a brilliant team of underwater explorers. With state- of-the-art technology and an unquenchable thirst for discovery, the Nektons explore the mysterious depths of the ocean, where most of our world lies unexplored and unexplained.
During this new series, the Nektons’ search for the lost city of Lemuria takes on new meaning. More of the colossal creatures known as Monumentials are stirring in the ocean’s depths, and only Lemuria’s secrets can stop them from waking and unleashing their destructive power on the world. Nereus is certain that the Nektons, especially Ant, are key to unlocking those secrets. With the Ephemychron leading the way, the family follow its clues to ancient Lemurian outposts across the globe. But will they unlock the mystery in time?
The urgency grows as they discover that they aren’t the only ones interested in Lemuria anymore—a mysterious young man with access to sophisticated technology is also looking for the lost city. The race is on—who will find Lemuria’s secret resting place first and harness its legendary power?
