DARK WINDS: Second Season news

The second season of the AMC series Dark Winds will premiere July 30 on both AMC and AMC+.

According to Anne Hillerman, daughter of Tony Hillerman, on whose series the show is based, will have six episodes.

“I’m excited to see the shows,” Hillerman writes. “I have really enjoyed this re-envisioning of my dad’s novels.”

Set in 1971 on a remote outpost of the Navajo Nation near Monument Valley, Utah, Dark Winds follows Lt. Joe Leaphorn of the Tribal Police as he is besieged by a series of seemingly unrelated crimes. The closer he digs to the truth, the more he exposes the wounds of his past. He is joined on this journey by his new deputy, Jim Chee. Chee, too, has old scores to settle from his youth on the reservation. Zahn McClarnon and Kiowa Gordon bring Leaphorn and Chee to life in the series, alongside Jessica Matten, who brings Bernadette Manuelito to the screen and Noah Emmerich as FBI Special Agent Whitover, Deanna Allison as Joe’s wife Emma Leaphorn, and features Rainn Wilson as Devoted Dan, a full-of-faith car salesman.

The series is directed by Chris Eyre and produced by Robert Redford, George R.R. Martin and Vince Calandra.

Anne Hillerman has continued the Leaphorn/Chee/Manuelito series. The eighth book, The Way of the Bear, is the most recent.
