Why We’re Obsessed With ‘Berlin Station’
The Epix thriller returns with a second season that does anything but shy away from the messy real-life politics -- news leaks, whistleblowers, terrorism and nationalism -- that have creeped into so many shows lately. Led by Richard Armitage, the cast adds Keke Palmer and Ashley Judd, who plays the new C.I.A. station chief, B.B. Yates. As Judd tells ET, B.B. represents the modern woman -- a strong female who’s “clever,” “unafraid to piss people off,” especially “the boys’ club,” and accomplished in her own right -- and the actress made it clear, there’s a relief in not having to contextualize or justify her power. “I love that B.B. is an unapologetic leader, just a leader through and through [and] very ready to suit up and show up and say this is how it is,” she said.
Berlin Station airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on EPIX.
