AMC Reveals Premiere Date for Season 2 of 'Dark Winds'

AMC has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming second season of its original drama series Dark Winds.

The 6-episode second season will launch on Sunday, July 30 at 9/8c. New episodes will be available to stream early every Thursday at midnight on AMC+ before making their linear debuts on Sunday.

In the new season, Lt. Joe Leaphorn reunites with Jim Chee, his former deputy turned private eye, when their separate cases bring them together in pursuit of the same suspect. They find themselves in the high desert of Navajo Country chasing a killer who's turned his sights on them to protect a secret that rips open old wounds and challenges Leaphorn's moral and professional code. With the help of Sgt. Manuelito and Valencia County Sheriff Gordo Sena, Leaphorn and Chee must thwart their would-be assassin and restore balance not only to their own lives, but to the reservation that depends on them.

The drama stars Zahn McClarnon, Kiowa Gordon, Jessica Matten, Deanna Allison, Elva Guerra, A Martinez, Joseph Runningfox, Nicholas Logan and Jeri Ryan.

Graham Roland developed the drama based on the "Leaphorn & Chee" book series by Tony Hillerman. John Wirth serves as showrunner for the second season. Roland and Wirth executive produce with McClarnon, Robert Redford, George R.R. Martin, Anne Hillerman, Chris Eyre, Vince Gerardis and Tina Elmo. AMC Studios produces.
