Sleeper Cell returns in December

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Nov 16th 2006 8:08PM

Michael Ealy and Oded Fehr star in Sleeper Cell.Quick! Everyone stock up on duct-tape, plastic wrap, and whatever else we were told to buy! OK, I jest... you don't really need to buy all that stuff. But Showtime's outstanding mini-series Sleeper Cell is back, so you should at least make sure you own a comfortable couch or recliner because we've all got eight great nights of TV ahead of us. As I reported back in June, Showtime picked up the show for a second series but no dates were set at the time. Now we have them. Series two will have eight episodes (the first series had ten) and the premiere will be on Sunday, December 10 at 9PM on Showtime. But don't forget that Showtime bills this show as a mini-series. So the remaining seven episodes will air one at a time on the next seven nights in that same 9PM time-slot. For the die-hard fans like myself, the entire series will be available On-Demand after the premiere airs. Michael Ealy, Oded Fehr, Henri Lubatti, and Melissa Sagemiller are all back to reprise their roles. In the meantime, you can check out a special preview here. So get excited... I am. And I'm serious about that couch thing.

I watched the last three episodes today of S2, and I got really disappointed in the way it ended. Bad guys 3 - Good guys 0.

It looks like Showtime is keeping the show's plot under wraps, and not at all embracing the whole 'viral' (no pun intended, given this show's central theme) scheme.

I really can't wait to see how the story unfolds this time round, though I did feel that last season's finale was a little too fast paced for reality.

I will probably be unavailable for about 8 hours beginning December 10 so that I can watch all 8 episodes in sequence in Showtime on Demand.

This show is seriously addicting. I'm still not sure how they can top season 1 however.

Good news! The first season was well-written and well-acted. Glad to hear that it will be back.
