Dark winds is gearing up for a new mystery on AMC, Season 2 of the crime drama begins Sunday, July 30.

New episodes will arrive early every Thursday on AMC+, with installments airing every Sunday on AMC.
In Season 2, Lt. Joe Leaphorn (McClarnon) reunites with Jim Chee (Gordon), his former deputy turned private eye, when the separate cases they’re working on bring them together in pursuit of the same suspect. Finding themselves in the high desert of Navajo Country, tracking a killer, the men soon discover that the killer has his eye on them to protect a secret that tears open old wounds and challenges Leaphorn’s moral and professional code.
Along with the help of Sgt. Manuelito (Matten) and Valencia County Sheriff Gordo Sena (played by new star A Martinez), Leaphorn and Chee must thwart their would-be assassin and restore balance to the reservation that depends on them, as well as their own lives. This high-stakes story is teased in the fascinating trailer, which you can watch above.
