It seems David Duchovny's still got it. After the successful debut of the series, NBC have today announced that the 1960s-set drama revolving around the Manson murders will make its return in 2016 for a second series. Presto put on a big show last month with their 'Age of Aquarius' event, where they made all 13 episodes of the series available to stream. Since then, Presto claims Aquarius has ranked as their most streamed show and continues to lure subscribers. Naturally, Presto have their sights set on season 2 of the hit series. When NBS airs season 2 in 2016, Presto will, again, have the exclusive first run in Australia.
Today Presto revealed that it has the exclusive rights to air the full first season of Aquarius on its Internet TV streaming service. From May 29 the company will show each episode as it runs in the US, and will continue to hold the episodes on demand into the future beyond the inaugural 13 episode season.
The show is set in Los Angeles during 1967, the era in which serial killer Charles Manson was unleashing his terror upon the famous city. Duchovny’s decorated WWII veteran Sam Hodiak heads undercover to track down the Manson family, but his already complicated personal life is thrown into further turmoil when an ex-flame, Emma Karn (Emma Gumont), convinces him to track down her missing 16-year-old daughter who has been lost to the hippie movement.
By his side is Brian Shafe (Grey Damon), a young idealistic vice cop and together they track down the budding cult leader Manson (Gethin Anthony – who’s played Renly Baratheon in Game of Thrones), who is using 'flower power' to lure young women to his cause. Young Australian actress Claire Holt also stars as Charmain Tully, a young police officer, rounding out an intriguing cast that should shine against the show’s psychedelic backdrop.
Shaun James, Director of Presto and On Demand, celebrating the news, saying, 'There has been huge anticipation for Aquarius, both for the historic and infamous subject matter the series is based on, but also for David Duchovny’s return to a major television role. Presto is delighted to have secured the exclusive first run Australian rights to air Aquarius from our partners Seven West Media and even more excited to bring all 13 episodes to our subscribers to binge on in full during its initial run.'
