It was announced today that Departure has been renewed for a second season. Red Arrow Studios, who distributes the series worldwide, has confirmed that filming has already begun in Toronto, Canada. The good news comes ahead of the thriller's stateside debut on Peacock, which is scheduled for September 17.

Billed as an event drama, the first season of Departure takes place following the disappearance of a passenger plane over the Atlantic Ocean. Aviation investigator Kendra Malley is brought in to investigate, and while the world watches, Kendra and her team race to locate the missing aircraft and any possible survivors.

Season 2 will focus on a different case, with the story following the aftermath of a deadly crash of a high-speed automated train travelling from Toronto to Chicago. Kendra once again leads the investigation, which leads her with a web of potential suspects.
