Season 2 is on Vulture's list of shows they can't wait to see in 2019 after the success of Season 1, the "eerily compelling" story of Captain Sir John Franklin’s doomed voyage to find the Northwest Passage in the 1800s.

George Takei, who serves as a consulting producer, will play Yamato-san, a former fishing captain and community elder. Takei will be joined on screen by actor Derek Mio, who stars as Chester Nakayama, the son of Japanese-born immigrants who has dreams of leaving his insular Japanese-American community and joining the army. The cast also includes Kiki Sukezane as Yuko, a mysterious woman from Chester’s past; Miki Ishikawa as Amy, a Nakayama family friend; Shingo Usami as Henry Nakayama, Chester’s father; and Naoko Mori as Asako Nakayama, Chester’s mother.
