With AMC's NOS4A2 returning for a second season on Sunday, June 21, Vic (Ashleigh Cummings) and Manx's (Zachary Quinto) desires to destroy the other grow stronger (and more personal) than ever. Forced to face his own mortality, Manx is looking for an advantage to rid himself of Vic once and for all. But this time, he's not going after Vic directly; instead, targeting the one person who means the most to his unrelenting nemesis: her eight-year-old son, Wayne. Vic and Manx's quest for revenge will send them on a high-speed collision course that will force both of them to confront the sins of their pasts.
The difference this time? It looks like only one of them will walk away from this round, and in previous teasers, we've seen just how far Vic's willing to go to protect those she loves and close the doors to Christmasland for good. Speaking of Christmasland, the fine folks at AMC España have found a very cool way to promote the series. In the following three images, we're reminded that no matter what language you speak and no matter what part of the world you're from, Manx's horrific hideaway is open to everyone. Just as long as you remember the rules: every day is Christmas, being unhappy is against the rules, and once you've earned your ticket to Christmasland? It's yours for life, whether you want it or not.
NOS4A2 Season 1 Introduced Viewers to Christmasland
Cummings' Vic McQueen is a young, working-class artist whose creativity awakens a supernatural ability to track Manx. What Vic lacks in social confidence, she makes up for in courage, humor, and tough-as-nails grit. She strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself. Quinto's Charlie Manx is a seductive immortal who feeds off the souls of children, then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – an icy, twisted Christmas village of Manx's imagination where every day is Christmas and unhappiness is forbidden. Manx finds his whole world threatened when a young woman in New England discovers she has a dangerous gift.
Based on best-selling author Joe Hill's novel, and executive produced by series creator/showrunner Jami O'Brien (Fear the Walking Dead) and Hill, NOS4A2 stars Quinto, Cummings, Jahkara Smith, Olafur Darri Olafsson, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Virginia Kull, Jonathan Langdon, Ashley Romans, Jason David, and Mattea Conforti.
