Marvel and Stitcher announced that they are developing a sequel to the hit Marvel Comics original series Wolverine: The Long Night.
Following the incredible fan reception of Marvel’s “Wolverine: The Long Night,” Richard Armitage (“The Hobbit”) will reprise his role as Logan in Marvel’s “Wolverine: The Lost Trail.”
Marvel’s “Wolverine: The Lost Trail” is an epic quest that takes place in the Louisiana bayou. Following the events of Marvel’s “Wolverine: The Long Night,” Logan (Richard Armitage) returns to New Orleans in search of redemption, only to discover that his ex-lover, Maureen is nowhere to be found. And she’s not the only one. Dozens of humans and mutants have gone missing, including the mother of a teenage boy, Marcus Baptiste. With Weapon X in close pursuit, Logan and Marcus must team up and follow a trail of clues that leads them deep into the gothic heart of the bayou, where they encounter biker gangs, Cajun thieves and a world of wonders that defies explanation. It is here that they find Greenhaven — a backwater refuge run by a powerful mutant named Jason Wyngarde.
“After seeing the overwhelming support for Marvel’s ‘Wolverine: The Long Night,’ we are excited to introduce listeners to another unique audio storytelling experience,” said Dan Buckley, President of Marvel. “Marvel’s ‘Wolverine: The Lost Trail’ will continue expanding Logan’s story and introduce more elements of the Marvel Universe. We look forward to expanding our content for Marvel fans and the scripted podcast community.”
The show’s cast includes notable actors Bill Irwin (“Legion”) as Jason Wyngarde, Bill Heck (“The Ballad of Buster Scruggs”) as Remy LeBeau, and Blair Brown (“Orange is the New Black”) as Bonnie Roach.
The 10-episode second season will be available exclusively on Stitcher Premium starting in winter 2019. It will be released widely across all podcast platforms later in the year.
