Kiefer Sutherland is back next year with the second season of his drama series Touch and today we get our first look at the promo poster artwork for the show. As you may know (or not), Touch got picked up for a second season after a pretty soft ratings first season on Fox. Honestly, as much as I enjoyed the show, I didn’t really think it would live to see a second season because I don’t know anyone who watched the show. But, Fox must have a lot of faith in Sutherland so, here comes Touch season 2.
The season 2 premiere of Touch may have gotten pushed back [to February], but you can take a look at key art for the show’s sophomore season right now! There aren’t many hints to be gathered from this new poster, but here’s what we can tell you: After a season 1 finale that introduced Maria Bello’s Lucy, the second season of this drama series picks up just minutes later and kicks off a season that will see Martin (Kiefer Sutherland), Lucy, and Jake (David Mazouz), trying to locate Lucy’s gifted daughter, Amelia, who many believed was dead. “[Lucy] only felt that her daughter was alive — like a mother’s intuition. So [Martin and Jake] absolutely reaffirm it,” says executive producer Tim Kring. “The second season is very much about the search for Amelia and the fact that Maria Bello and Kiefer Sutherland’s characters are now joined together – two people who are searching for answers together.” Touch premieres Feb. 8.
Those of you who watched Touch season 1, you know that the show is very … heady. It’s not a show you can watch casually, in the background. You have to pay attention to every little thing to truly enjoy the show. I like the series but I don’t love it. I suspect I’ll watch season 2 but I wish I could be more excited about the show’s return. Since we are STILL waiting for the 24 movie, I guess we have to make due with Touch.
