Academy Award winner J.K. Simmons returns in his dual role as this head-spinning (but sadly underwatched) sci-fi series returns for its sophomore season. Season 1 saw low-level United Nations employee Howard Silk (Simmons) discovering a secret portal to an alternate reality. Ultimately, Howard and his alt-world doppelganger wound up trapped in each other’s worlds. As the story resumes, both Howards must adapt to their new realities, even as a cold war escalates between their worlds.
