For some reason you can't link to the pictures on Utopia's FB page.

Anyway, they released another one today that's semi-spoilerish and made my brain explode.

I've already begun to speculate.

Though I'm a little worried by the incredibly tongue in cheek tone throughout. (Missus RC said the trailer plays like a "comedy remake" of the first season.) The first series had a lot of dark humor too, but the previews didn't play that out much. There's also a lot of lip service paid to the imagery of the first season. (The yellow bag, Lee's miraculous return from the dead, and his joke about Wilson keeping an eye out.) Since it's the same director I'm not overly concerned, but I'm still going to try and temper my expectations.

But yes, I've watched it a half dozen times, geeking out more with each viewing.

They had the same sort of comedy in the first season...you just don't notice it because people are dying horribly.

So we marathoned it (again!) this weekend...and, yes, did you all not notice season one's comedy the second one around? For every scene of shocking horror, there's a laugh-out-loud moment. 90% of Becky's dialogue is for comic effect...

From Quiet Earth:

Quote
If you're smart, sometime over the last year you managed to catch up with Dennis Kelly's conspiracy theory home run Utopia. The show, about a group of individuals on the run in search of answers to a mystery that seems buried in a comic book, was a brilliant mix of violence and comedy and pushed more than a few hot buttons.

Season two returns with more adventures with Ian, Becky Grant and Arby and it looks like things are only going to get stranger and more violent as Ian brings the group back together to stop the mass murdering of much of the British population.


While Channel 4 hasn't made the premiere date public, we do know the show is coming in July and judging from the first trailer, it's looking just as darkly comedic and violent as the first series.

Den of Geek has "spoiler free" reviews of the first two episodes. I so want to read them.

Don't do it!

Also, that means we're getting the episodes sooner rather than later in July...

Channel 4 hasn't been bashful in telling us the the first episode is a flashback to the the 70s and the origins of Janus, but who Rose Leslie is playing makes my brain start to twirl.

Quote
Having spent the last couple of TV years clad in wolfskin and pointing arrows at Jon Sneurrrgh, Rose Leslie actually an incredibly posh Scot rather than a Lancastrian comes south of the wall for the new series of Utopia. She plays a younger version of CIA schemer Milner, revealing that the first episode is basically one long flashback set in the 70s, getting us up to speed on the origins of the Utopia experiments.
