"At The Office of Interchange, those who have high enough access safeguard a crossing into a parallel dimension not unlike our own," a press release noted. "And if their world is like ours, who are we over there? Are we better? Are we different? Season 2 finds Howard and his counterpart living out these questions. With the crossing closed and each of them stranded in the other's world, they have to adapt for survival."
The cable network also released this week a 2-minute trailer for the upcoming, 10-episode season.
