CBS All Access Renews ‘Strange Angel’

Second Season Set for 2019

CBS All Access has greenlit period drama “Strange Angel” for a second season, with an unconfirmed number of new episodes. The series explores the true story of Jack Parsons (Jack Raynor), a man who straddled the worlds of science and the occult, pioneering America’s rocketry program while simultaneously practicing sex magic rituals and living by the creed “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.”
The logline: At the conclusion of “Strange Angel’s” first season, Jack and his team from Caltech make a scientific breakthrough that secures the military’s interest as the country nears the brink of war. In season two, the U.S. is fully engaged in World War II, transforming Jack’s rocketry work into a lucrative business and further entrenching him in the military-industrial complex. While Jack’s career takes off, he and his wife Susan’s devotion to their new occult religion grows, leading them to invite the sex cult into their Pasadena mansion and to forge a personal relationship with the group’s notorious founder, Aleister Crowley himself.
The cast of “Strange Angel” Rupert Friend, Bella Heathcote, Peter Mark Kendall, Michael Gaston, Greg Wise, Rade Šerbedžija, Zack Pearlman and Keye Chen.
