IMDb TV Picks Up Season 2 of 'Almost Paradise'

IMDb TV has today announced the pick up of the second season of the original drama series Almost Paradise. The first season originally aired in Summer 2020 on WGN America - before the network's transition to NewsNation.

The drama follows Alex Walker, a former U.S. DEA agent who, after his partner's betrayal and a life-threatening battle with hypertension, is forced into early retirement and relocates to a small tropical island in the Philippines. Once the DEA's most resourceful undercover operative, Walker now runs the gift shop in the island's luxury resort hotel. While he manages to transition from top DEA agent to laid-back islander, the luxury resort has attracted the rich, powerful - and sometimes criminal - elite from around the world, often on a collision course with Alex. Despite his best efforts to begin a tranquil new life, he's pulled back into a world of dangerous people and deadly situations, either through his friends in the local police or running into people from his old life. And the problem is, he likes it.

The drama stars Christian Kane, Samantha Richelle, Arthur Acuña, Nonie Buencamino and Ces Quesada.

Dean Devil and Gary Rosen created the drama. They executive produce with Marc Roskin and Rachel Olschan-Wilson. Electric Entertainment produces.

The 10-episode first season is currently available to stream on IMDb TV.
