AMC's NOS4A2 is set to throw open the doors to Christmasland when the ten-episode, second-season returns on June 1 (simulcast with BBC America). When it does, viewers will be buckling up for a time jump that takes them eight years after the first season's finale, and now we're getting our first teaser showing us what to expect. Vic (Ashleigh Cummings) remains committed to destroying Manx (Zachary Quinto) once and for all. Forced to face his own mortality, Manx is desperate to enact revenge on Vic by setting his sights on the one person who means the most to Vic: her eight-year-old son, Wayne. Manx's quest for horrific revenge will send him on a high-speed collision course with Vic that will force both of them to confront past sins, and only one of them can walk away from it alive.
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. Produced by AMC Studios in association with Tornante Television, NOS4A2 is executive produced by Hill, O'Brien, and Tornante Television's Lauren Corrao. Emmy nominee Kari Skogland (The Handmaid's Tale) directed the initial two episodes of the 10-episode first season.

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 Day and unhappiness is against the law. Manx finds his whole world threatened when a young woman in New England discovers she has a dangerous gift.
