If shooting up heroin and amputations upset you, Graceland may not be the show for you. Those two things happen in season one, and the entire cast promises a "darker" season two. "The characters are all pushed to their limits this season. Everyone is sort of taken to their bottom, or close to their bottom," McLaren teased. "Everybody is really tested. I'm not sure that necessarily equals dark, but they're all dealing with heavy things and trying to keep their heads above water."
Charlie (Ferlito) is going to have a particularly dark storyline this season. Ferlito teased that Charlie "works out this whole scam" to get someone money, "and then we get her the money, and it’s actually really illegal." All in all, Charlie "wants to do the right thing, but will also do what she has to do to get sh*t done [even if that] means being a little sideways, a little crooked."
Meanwhile, Briggs (Sunjata) will be struggling to get some redemption, according to Sunjata. "He did some bad things for, maybe, justifiable reasons, understandable reasons, and he’s trying to not continue living in such a dark place, in such a morally ambiguous place, although the job does have certain demands," he added. "I guess the curveball in season two is that every time Briggs tries to get out, they call him back in."
