Joining the cast this season is Emmy® nominee, Walton Goggins. Known for his versatile and critically acclaimed performances in Justified, Vice Principals and The Hateful Eight, Goggins stars as Nathan Miller, an ex-CIA operative brought in as a fixer for the deep state.
The second season delves deeper into the murky and political world of the deep state. Having failed in the Middle East, those powers are now turning their attention to sub-Saharan Africa and the scramble to plunder its natural resources. This is the first dirty war over clean energy.
