WGN America debuted the original drama Manhattan last year, which now heads into season two, previewed in the teaser below.

Manhattan is set in 1943 Los Alamos, the site of the Manhattan Project, which saw the development of the atomic bomb. Secrets from public knowledge is just the backdrop as secrets between researchers is even more interesting, especially for those who are confined to a true need-to-know basis.

The Synopsis for Season 2:

The series, created by Sam Shaw and directed by Emmy Award®-winning director Thomas Schlamme, follows the tangled lives of the residents of Los Alamos, New Mexico, as they race to detonate the first nuclear bomb in history.  Locked away in the world’s most secretive city, the scientists and their families surrender their freedoms, compromise their marriages, and even sacrifice their sanity to end one bloody war and usher in another — the Cold War waiting just over the atomic horizon — all while foreign spies and a climate of paranoia threaten to destroy the project from within.
