Recommended Posts

Streaming on the Peacock subscription service in the United States, the Departure TV show stars Archie Panjabi, Christopher Plummer, Kris Holden-Reid, Rebecca Liddiard, Tamara Duarte, Mark Rendall, Peter Mensah, and Sasha Roiz. After passenger plane Flight 716 vanishes, recently widowed Kendra Malley (Panjabi), a brilliant TSIB investigator, is called in by her former boss and mentor, Senior TSIB Manager Howard Lawson (Plummer), to lead the investigation. With the whole world watching, Kendra and her team race to find the missing aircraft and locate possible survivors. They must battle through a host of suspects and possible motives to determine what really happened to Flight 716 — and to stop it from happening again.

Departure has been renewed for a second season which will debut (TBD).

New Season of Departure is streaming August 5 on Peacock: https://pck.tv/3ygdZGu

Synopsis: A new season of Departure follows Kendra Malley (Emmy® Award winner Archie Panjabi) as she’s recruited to investigate the derailment of an experimental high-speed train in rural Michigan. Pressure mounts for Kendra and her team to crack the puzzle as the small town reels in shock, and the world demands answers. Their investigation reveals a plethora of disconnected events and a range of potential suspects with believable motives: a disillusioned employee, a local anti-technology politician, the tech mogul who developed the train’s software...and even a man with ties to a Mexican drug cartel. As she works to sort through the chaos, Kendra must reckon with the inner tension that emerges between the investigation and her emotions.

Christopher Plummer!!! I thought that I wouldn't get to see him again.

Really liked the first season, second right around the corner!

Also asked on the 2.1 thread:

Season 1 is now all on the free version of Peacock, whereas only this first episode of season 2 is on free Peacock. 
I'm considering signing up for a month to see the rest of season 2, but sometimes those subscriptions are a bear to cancel.
Does anyone know when season 2 will be available on free Peacock?

Full season two (Six episodes) are airing free on Peacock here.  It's probably a Comcast thing.  I think what makes "Departure" so good is the outstanding performance by the lead actress. Emmy & Oscar winner Archie Panjabi. Her take no prisoners and never back down attitude is a nice "Fvck You" to the haters & criminals.

ITA.  Love her character.  The show is often ridiculous and Kendra seems to magically run into into witnesses/victims even if she's not at the crash sites but it doesn't make the show any less watchable.  I've just binged both seasons and enjoyed them both.   Always follow the money when investigating a crash!

Season 3's ill-fated departure will be on a ferry.  I couldn't find anything on when it will be on Peacock.
