Surface Season 2 Plot
The series is expected to continue the plot from the finale episode, “See You on the Other Side,” released on September 2, 2022. The episode is directed by Tucker Gates, and the story is written by Dan Lee West & Veronica West aligns with the teleplay by Veronica West. In the episode, the viewers get to see that Sophie seems ready to move forward as she contemplates accepting life with James while questions about her past still linger. The overall plot of the show is set in high-end San Francisco, “Surface,” which stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Sophie, a woman who has suffered a traumatic head injury that has left her with extreme memory loss, believed to be a result of a suicide attempt.
As Sophie embarks on a quest to put the pieces of her life back together with the help of her husband and friends, she begins to question whether or not the truth she is told is, in fact, the truth she has lived. Through twists and turns and a shocking love triangle, this sexy, elevated thriller asks: What if you woke up one day and didn’t know your own secrets? “Surface,” is a story of self-discovery which contemplates if we are pre-programmed to become who we are or if we choose our own identity. While it answered the question of who Sophie really was, season two is designed to tell viewers why.
Sophie traveled across an ocean to escape her past, so what was she running from? Returning to her hometown of London, season two will find Sophie rediscovering the unfinished relationships that have haunted her memories – as she finds out where she really came from, and what made her the flawed person she was. But the mess she left behind in San Francisco will catch up with her, as Sophie discovers once and for all, you can never outrun your past. “I am thrilled to continue this journey and dive deeper into the tension and mystery of ‘Surface’ with this brilliant team,” said Mbatha-Raw.
“I love playing Sophie and I can’t wait for fans and new audiences to join us as she enters the dangerous new world of her past in season two. As an actor and executive producer, it’s incredibly meaningful to be bringing this story home to London.” Also adding, “This is really a brand new chapter set in a whole new world – I can’t wait for people to see how the show evolves as we explore an emboldened, fearless Sophie in season two,” added West. “It’s been such a pleasure working with Gugu, Apple, and the team at Hello Sunshine and a real privilege to continue the journey.”
