by on

Fortitude which airs on Sky in the UK has been acquired by Amazon for streaming rights in the US.

Fortitude follows Sheriff Dan Anderssen (Dormer), a small isolated community with a captive population in an environment that is undergoing change and upheaval due to parasite and pathogen activity. After shooting the woman he loved, Dan becomes consumed with guilt, disappears into the wilderness and was presumed dead. A new body is discovered on the other side of town and Eric must step up and lead this horrific investigation.

As his own police team is trying to figure out who would have killed a man for no apparent reason, Dan suddenly reappears, a violent, broken, ruin of a man, wild to the point of feral. Quaid stars as Michael Lennox, a fisherman and patriarch of a family living in Fortitude, who is struggling to come to terms with his terminally ill wife, and will try anything to find a cure. 

Season Two stars Richard Dormer, Sofie Gråbøl, and Luke Treadaway, and newcomers Dennis Quaid, Parminder Nagra, Michelle Fairley, Robert Sheehan, and Ken Stott.
