WGN America Renews Crime Drama ‘Pure’ for Season 2

Pick Up Comes Almost One Year Before the Season One Premiere

WGN America has picked up a second season of crime drama “Pure” prior to season one launching.Inspired by true events, “Pure” is the journey of Noah Funk (Ryan Robbins), a newly elected Mennonite pastor, who is determined to rid his community of the scourge of drugs and its nefarious ties to a trans-border smuggling alliance with ruthless Mexican cocaine cartels.  Just when he thinks he’s won, Noah and his wife Anna (Alex Paxton-Beelsey) are thrust headlong into a desperate world of violence, greed, and betrayal. 
 
“’Pure’” is a stand-out scripted drama series with powerful characters and intense conflict in a very unique world,”
said Gavin Harvey, President of WGN America. “We are fully committed to this riveting series and knew we wanted to extend the story before the first episode even hits our air.”

The first season of “Pure” will begin in early 2019, and the second season is scheduled to begin production in Nova Scotia later this spring.
