SPIDER-MANDATE: The Lowe-down on "Secret Wars," Tie-Ins and Stacey Lee
Fox has released photos from photos from the season two premiere of Human Target, as well new portraits of the show’s cast.
The second season of the series, loosely based on the DC Comics property created by Len Wein and Carmine Infantino, sees an addition to the previously all-male central cast: Indira Varma (Torchwood, Rome) as Ilsa Pucci, a recently widowed billionaire who seeks the help of Christopher Chance (Mark Valley) after the murder of her philanthropist husband. She offers to become the benefactor and silent owner of Chance’s protection agency, allowing him and his partners Winston (Chi McBride and Guerrero (Jackie Earle Haley) access to her unlimited resources.
Here’s the official synopsis for the episode, titled “Ilsa Pucci,” which airs on Oct. 1: “After rescuing Winston, Chance vows to retire as a bodyguard rather than further put his friends at risk. However, Ilsa Pucci, a billionaire philanthropist, asks for his help after the death of her husband, and a mysterious thief from Winston’s past is involved.”
