WGN America announced today that the highly anticipated second season of its critically praised drama “Manhattan” is set for Tuesday, October 13 at 9:00 p.m. ET/ 8:00 p.m. CT.

In addition, WGN America released the first photos from the second season, which explores the events leading up to one of the most defining moments in history: the Trinity test, marking the first detonation of an atomic weapon, which took place on July 16, 1945 — 70 years ago this Thursday.

The new season of “Manhattan” will once again take viewers inside the world’s most secretive city where, locked away, the scientists and their families surrender their freedoms, compromise their marriages, and even sacrifice their sanity to end one war and usher in another — the Cold War waiting just over the atomic horizon — all while embedded spies and a climate of paranoia threaten to destroy the project from within.
