The second season of BBC America’s action-fantasy hit series Atlantis will premiere on Friday, November 15th – the same day as its premiere on the UK network BBC. The new season introduces new character Medea (Amy Manson), Princess of Colchis – and the exiled Pasiphae’s niece (who also has the gift of magic) and Dion (Strike Back’s Vincent Regan).
With the political upheaval that ended season one, Queen Ariadne asks Jason and friends Hercules and Pythagoras for their support – thrusting them into even more daunting adventures.
Atlantis’ highly entertaining take on Greek mythology stars Jack Donnelly as Jason, Mark Addy as Hercules, and Robert Emms as Pythagoras. Also returning are Aiysha Hart as Queen Ariadne, Alexander Siddig as King Minos, Jemima Rooper as Medusa, Sarah Parish as Pasiphae and Juliet Stevenson as the Oracle.

The series follows the adventures of Jason, a man from the present, who finds himself in the ancient city-state of Atlantis. The series is a heady mix of Greek myth, epic fantasy and action. Follow the jump for more details.

I just finished rereading the book and have to say that, so far, it looks as if HBO has really gotten it right.
