Global is excited to announce that the original suspense drama Ransom has been green lit for a second season! Ransom will shoot in Hungary in the coming months, and is set to premiere next year on Global in Canada and CBS in the United States. With a 13-episode order, season 2 welcomes back Luke Roberts as expert hostage negotiator Eric Beaumont. Beaumont’s team includes Maxine Carlson, a young newcomer eager to prove herself; Oliver Yates, a psychological profiler; and ex-cop Zara Hallam.
Season 2 of the series continues to follow crisis and hostage negotiator Eric Beaumont and his team as they save lives when no one else can. Eric understands criminals better than they do themselves, and uses his insight into human behaviour to solve the most difficult kidnap and ransom cases. Despite the stakes, Eric refuses to resort to violence, even when confronted by some of the most dangerous criminals in the world.
Ransom is inspired by the professional experiences of distinguished crisis negotiator Laurent Combalbert, who, along with his partner Marwan Mery, are among the top negotiators in the world. They travel the globe to help multinational corporations and governmental agencies with complex negotiations and conflict resolution.
Ransom was created by David Vainola (Diamonds, Combat Hospital) and Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files, The Man in the High Castle). Can the stakes get any higher for Eric Beaumont and his team? Find out next year on Global!
