Season 2 of QCODE Media and Endeavor Content’s podcast Blackout has finally begun, and listeners get to meet Wren Foster, voiced by Aja Naomi King.
The first episode of the season, titled “Powder Keg,” sees the return of Simon (Rami Malek), a small-town radio DJ who, after escaping, runs into Wren, an old family-friend. Wren fills Simon in on everything her family experienced during the blackout, but whether she’s fully trustworthy is yet to be revealed. What is Wren hiding? And what mysteries about the origins of the blackout still need to be uncovered?
Blackout initially released in 2019. Season 1 followed Simon as he fought to protect his family and community after the national power grid went down, upending modern civilization. The podcast was created by Scott Conroy. Season 2 was written by Jeremy Novick, and directed by Novick and Stefanie Abel Horowitz.
The podcast has also received a TV package, though details still remain limited for now. Find more information here. Listen to the first episode of season 2 now on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and wherever you listen to podcasts. New episodes will release weekly every Thursday.
