Apple today shared the trailer for the second season of "Home Before Dark," which is set to premiere on Friday, June 11. "Home Before Dark" is one of multiple Apple TV+ shows that was renewed for a second season, and it follows the second seasons of "For All Mankind," "Servant," and "Mythic Quest."


"Home Before Dark" is based on the true story of child journalist Hilde Lysiak. It follows Hilde, a nine-year-old girl who moves back to the small town her father is from. While there, she uncovers a murder case everyone in the town had tried to bury and pursues the truth of what happened.

In season 2, Hilde continues her quest to uncover the secrets of Erie Harbor.
In season two, when a mysterious explosion hits a local farm, reporter Hilde Lisko (Brooklynn Prince) begins an investigation that will lead her to fight a powerful and influential corporation - with the health of her family and Erie Harbor in the balance.
Home Before Dark stars Brooklynn Prince, Jim Sturgess, and Abby Miller among others, and it was created by Dana Fox and Dara Resnik.

This summer will see the debut of many new and returning shows with "Lisey's Story," "Physical," "Central Park," "Schmigadoon," and "Ted Lasso," all premiering. We keep an updated guide of all of the TV and film projects that Apple is working on, complete with a list of everything that's nearing release.

S1 had some issues with tone for me—it seemed like it was occasionally veering too much into an 80s kids movie where you wonder where the adults are-type of independence from the kid, which didn't work when the rest of the setting was supposed to very much be the real world.

It's interesting that the log line suggests they're moving on from the mystery in the first season entirely.

This is a solid show. I’m afraid a lot didn’t give it a chance because they thought it was a “kids” show — and I get that when they are in the marketing — but the kids in it are just a fraction of the characters. And it really had some heavy themes that would be fine for ‘young adult’ but perhaps far from little kid. Some nice mystery and tone that it set…give it a shot!

Such a dumb show but I’ll probably watch it anyway. It’s good mindless entertainment if you can ignore how idiotic it is.

That was me. But one day with nothing else to watch, the wife and I took a chance on the first episode and we were hooked.

Season 1 of this show is very good. What surprised me though is Mythic Quest. That show is really underrated. Could be the best show on TV+.

I thought they were moving away from the original story too, but if you watch the entire trailer it shows how it ties into solving the mystery of the first season.

I don't remember a Season One even, and I thought I was aware of all Apple TV programming

The tone is tricky to pull off with this show. When I was that kid’s age I was terrified of murder stories and strangers. Yet her plucky gang doesn’t waver at breaking into a vacant home. It worked though. This show really surprised me.

9yo Journalist? Is this a kids/family kind of show?
Definitely not a “kids” show, but it’s safe enough to watch with the family. The thing I had the most trouble with is understanding how a 9yo could have such an intellectual understanding of the world, especially in regards to more adult topics and themes. Then again, I don’t have any kids so I’m not sure how realistic or common that would be.

Not a “kids” show but definitely something you can watch together with tweens and young teens. Hard to find much in this category. Most shows either too much for young children or mature audience only. —. And once again, surprised Apple didn’t give this show a little more attention. Their loss I guess.

we will probably watch the second season. the first season was fine...not great, not horrible. This is a good show for a pre-teen age group. younger wouldn't grasp it all. older will find it is roll-your-eyes cliché.

as someone noted above this is like an 80s movie where you wonder why the kids aren't in school, and any adults don't bother to really wonder that too, and where are the parents and do any work? The acting isn't great. the story is a bit far fetched how things just fall into place so easily. The cinematography and general filmmaking and sound are good. the effects are pretty good (except the aging process is a bit off).

All that said we still watched each episode. It was an easy show to watch when nothing else was on and we wanted a show that didnt have us thinking too much.

Since For All Mankind was mentioned, I have to say what a fantastic series. I just finished season 2 (I waited for all episodes to drop so I could binge it) and it was even better than season 1 (which was also fantastic). This is the best work Ronald Moore has done since Battlestar Galactica. And the very end teaser has me very excited for season 3. FAM is one of the best TV series I have seen on any service or station, bar none.
