This is an English thriller with elements of drama, starring Colin Morgan and Charlotte Spencer. The first season was released in 2016 and immediately found his fans.
The creators received a lot of positive evaluations of this project and decided to shoot the continuation of the series. Firstly, the history of the newlyweds is not over yet, the writers have something to tell and show to the viewer. Secondly, the project has turned out to be quite successful and already has its fans, so the creators can not back down and refuse to continue.
The exact release date of the second season has not yet been named. Earlier it was planned to do this in the second half of 2017, but so far fans can be content with only a trailer.
What ended the series and what will be in the sequel
The action takes place in 1894. The main characters are a successful young couple, who inherit the farm, they are ready to start a new life. However, their dreams will not come true. In a new place, they face a supernatural danger, which seriously threatens their marriage.
The first thing that catches your eye when you watch it is the atmosphere. In this series, the superstitions of the rural world reigned supreme in the era of the industrial revolution. The confrontation between scientific progress and old village customs is well illustrated here.
Critics give mostly positive assessments of this picture, note the high professionalism of the actors and a decent director’s work.
The series is notable for the fact that it has a unique antique atmosphere. The spectator literally endures in the era of the borders of the 18th and 19th centuries, and he can experience the features of conservative life standards on himself.
Separately, it should be said about the mystical component of the series. Strangely enough, the supernatural in this context looks quite appropriate and perfectly complements the picture. The series is not like ordinary horror stories about ghosts, which the modern spectator is used to seeing.
“The living and the dead” really scares, but not with sudden screams, loud music and unexpected special effects, but a psychological component. The spectator is constantly kept in suspense, thanks to a magnificent acting game, which allows you to convey the emotions and feelings of each of the main characters.
Writers fine worked the characters. Charlotte is the embodiment of life, light and joy. Her husband, on the other hand, is a person who is more prone to depression, anxiety and at times has a very unstable mental state.
During the first season, the viewer periodically, then takes the side of one of the spouses, then cardinally changes his mind. This was achieved thanks to different points of view of both spouses, each of which was able not only to show, but also to justify.
