WWII Drama Starring Évelyne Brochu (Orphan Black), Jack Laskey (Endeavor) and Warren Brown (Luther) Returns Monday, May 7th
Los Angeles, CA: After a critically acclaimed series premiere last month, Ovation is set to roll into the second season of X Company just a few weeks after its first season ends. Inspired by the true story of Camp X, a top-secret Allied spy training facility in Lake Ontario, the series stars Évelyne Brochu (Orphan Black), Jack Laskey (Endeavour), Hugh Dillon (Flashpoint, Continuum), Warren Brown (Luther, Strike Back), Dustin Milligan (Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, Schitt’s Creek), Connor Price (Being Human) and Lara Jean Chorostecki (Designated Survivor, Hannibal). Season Two of X Company will debut on Monday, May 7th at 10pm ET / 7pm PT on Ovation.
X Company follows the stories of five highly skilled young recruits, torn from their ordinary lives and trained to conduct one risky mission after another to help Allied forces change the world. Season Two finds the team on the ground in German-occupied France, two men down, compromised, and cut off from communications with Camp X.
