PRESS RELEASE



Following a successful first season launch earlier this year, popular fantasy-adventure series Atlantis is set to return with a brand new season on 16 November, Sundays at 7pmfirst and exclusively on DIVA (Starhub Cable TV Ch. 513). Atlantis season two airs on DIVA the same day as the show’s U.K. and U.S. debuts and less than four months after the season one finale in June.


The series strengthens NBCUniversal International Television’s commitment to giving viewers top-rated, high-quality programmes express from their world debuts. In addition to Atlantis, DIVA – Asia’s leading women’s general entertainment channel – also airs the latest seasons of critically-acclaimed period drama Downton Abbey (season five) and award-winning comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine (season two) the same day as their respective U.K. and U.S. premieres.

A British/American co-production, Atlantis is a strikingly cinematic series with ambitious production values and an impressive international cast, which includes Jack Donnelly (House of Anubis) as Jason, Mark Addy (Game of Thrones) as Hercules and Robert Emms (War Horse) as Pythagoras. In the series, richly serialized storylines merge seamlessly with the myths and legends of classical Greek literature to create a unique and intriguing blend of high fantasy drama and gripping action adventure: a fresh and enthralling approach to these much-loved tales with truly universal appeal.




The 13-episode second season opens a year after the climatic events of season one. The kingdom of Atlantis stands on the brink of collapse and the struggle for power is both bloody and brutal. Newly enthroned Queen Ariadne finds herself at war with an old adversary and turns to her most trusted friends – Jason, Hercules and Pythagoras – for support, thrusting them to the very heart of politics and power in Atlantis. As the battle for the throne intensifies, loyalties and love are tested to the limit and the responsibilities of duty become increasingly unforgiving. These difficult times require hard choices for all as secrets and lies become the currency of choice and no one is immune to betrayal.

Don’t miss Atlantis (season two) premiering 16 November, Sundays at 7pm – first and exclusively on DIVA (Starhub Cable TV Ch. 513).
