Australian streaming service Stan announced today that production has begun in South Australia on the second season of Wolf Creek, its award-winning, smash-hit, critically-acclaimed original drama series.
Director Greg McLean and star John Jarratt will continue their iconic and successful collaboration with Jarratt reprising his iconic role as the outback apex predator Mick Taylor, who returns with a vengeance after his season one showdown.
Joining Jarratt is a diverse and hugely talented cast of stars and newcomers, including Tess Haubrich, Matt Day, Ben Oxenbould, Laura Wheelwright, Stephen Hunter and Chris Haywood.
A six-part drama series, Wolf Creek season two is a high-end psychological thriller pitting a diverse cast of characters against an inhospitable, remote landscape, whose lethal dangers are personified by the series’ infamous serial killer.
