Returning: Total Control
S2 of ABC political drama comes to Sunday nights in early November.
ABC has confirmed a premiere date for the return of political drama Total Control: Sunday 7 November.
Deborah Mailman and Rachel Griffiths both return in the Blackfella Films’ series as politicians Alex Irving and Rachel Anderson, respectively.
Reprising their role are Rob Collins, Wes Patten, Anthony Hayes, William McInnes, Huw Higginson and Lisa Flanagan. They will be joined by Steph Tisdell, Wayne Blair (who also directs) Rob Carlton, Alex Dimitriades, Daniela Farinacci, Colin Friels, Harry Greenwood, Benedict Hardie, Brenna Harding, Anita Hegh and Vico Thai.
In season two, both Alex and Rachel find themselves treading different political paths. After being dumped by her own party, Rachel relies on strategist Nick Pearce (Alex Dimitriades) to guide her political ambitions, while Alex finds herself surrounded by a new team, led by her brother Charlie (Rob Collins). But politics can be a nasty business. Will Alex’s determination and the tenacity of her grass-roots driven team be enough? Can she survive a system determined to shake everything she values? And can these political adversaries become political allies?
