The second season of Starz’s J.K. Simmons fronted thriller Counterpart will receive its UK premiere on StarzPlay – which is available exclusively in the UK on Amazon Prime via Amazon Channels – on Sunday December 9th, it has been announced.
Counterpart follows Howard Silk (J.K. Simmons), a lowly cog in the bureaucratic machinery of a Berlin-based United Nations spy agency. When Howard discovers that his organization safeguards the secret of a crossing into a parallel dimension, he is thrust into a shadow world of intrigue, danger, and double cross… where the only man he can trust is his near-identical counterpart from this parallel world. The drama series, which was created by Justin Marks, is produced by Media Rights Capital, Gilbert Films, and Anonymous Content and stars J.K. Simmons, Olivia Williams, Harry Lloyd, Nicholas Pinnock, Nazanin Boniadi and Sara Serraiocco.
In the show’s second season, with the Crossing closed and Howard (J.K. Simmons) and his counterpart stranded in the other’s world, they have to adapt for survival. Howard Prime takes on his other’s life: going to his job, living in his home… with his wife. Howard Alpha is locked in a mysterious black site known as Echo, cut off from everyone he knows. As a cold war escalates between worlds deepening a fickle divide, both men find themselves growing increasingly like their other. The executive producers are Justin Marks, Gary Gilbert, Jordan Horowitz, Morten Tyldum, Keith Redmon and Bard Dorros.
