PRESS RELEASE — June 13, 2019
Marvel and top podcast listening service and content network Stitcher (“Heaven’s Gate,” “The Dream”) announced the wide release of the second season of its highly-acclaimed and iHeartRadio Award-winning original podcast series MARVEL’S WOLVERINE: THE LOST TRAIL. On July 8, the first two episodes will be available on all major podcast platforms and devices for audiences worldwide, with the rest of the 10-episode series released weekly. Subscribers to Stitcher Premium are able to listen to all ten episodes now.
“Marvel’s Wolverine: The Lost Trail” is an epic quest that takes place in the Louisiana bayou. Following the events of “Marvel’s Wolverine: The Long Night,” Logan (Richard Armitage) returns to New Orleans in search of redemption, only to discover that his ex-lover, Maureen is nowhere to be found. And she’s not the only one. Dozens of humans and mutants have gone missing, including the mother of a teenage boy, Marcus Baptiste. With Weapon X in close pursuit, Logan and Marcus must team up and follow a trail of clues that leads them deep into the gothic heart of the bayou, where they encounter biker gangs, Cajun thieves and a world of wonders that defies explanation. It is here that they find Greenhaven -- a refuge run by a powerful mutant named Jason Wyngarde.
The show’s cast includes notable actors Richard Armitage (“The Stranger”) as Wolverine, Bill Irwin (“Legion”) as Jason Wyngarde, Bill Heck (“The Ballad of Buster Scruggs”) as Remy LeBeau, Blair Brown (“Orange is the New Black”) as Bonnie Roach, Rachael Holmes (“Mad Dogs”) as Maureen, and newcomer Rodney Henry as Marcus.
Award-winning comic book author Ben Percy (“The Dark Net,” “Red Moon”), director Brendan Baker (“Wolverine: The Long Night”), and associate director Chloe Prasinos (“Wolverine: The Long Night”) will return for the series, produced by Daniel Fink and Chloe Wilson of Marvel and Jenny Radelet Mast of Stitcher.
As Marvel’s first-ever scripted podcast, the series has received critical acclaim from around the globe. Called “a masterclass in dramatic realism” by the Financial Times, the show has received universal praise for its story, sound production, voice acting, and its thrilling hybrid of mystery and the larger-scale fantasy of the Marvel Universe. The first season was named as one of the best podcasts of 2018 by Forbes, The Verge, Vulture and TIME.
