When Eric Wald and Dean White's Siren returns to Freeform for the second-half of its second season, it does so with the creative confidence that comes from having received a season 3 pick-up – even before you've completed your second season! But let's be clear: the popular mermaid fantasy-action drama hasn't forgotten about the business at hand when it comes to the second season – have you?
No worries! Just in case you need a "refresher course" on the trials and tribulations of Ryn (Eline Powell), Ben (Alex Roe), and Maddie (Fola Evans-Akingbola) – or just need to update your mental map of Bristol Cove – the fine folks at Freeform have gifted Bleeding Cool with an exclusive look back at season 1 and the first-half of the second season.
Here's a look back at Freeform's Siren – followed by a look ahead to what fans can expect when the series returns on Thursday, June 13, at 8 p.m. EST.
In the second season of Freeform's Siren, more mermaids arrived in the once-sleepy fishing town – but are they seeking revenge, or is something more catastrophic driving them out of the sea? Marine researchers Ben (Alex Roe) and Maddie (Fola Evans-Akingbola) continue to establish a bond with mermaid Ryn (Eline Powell), not only to protect her but to try to help save her entire civilization.
Ben and Maddie are uncertain about the mermaids' future after the deadly consequences of the attack on the oil rig and, with the mermaids returning to sea, are left feeling lost without Ryn. Once Helen (Rena Owen) learns she's not the only one of her kind, she discovers there is a dark side to her people's past.
