Crackle, the online-video network of Sony Pictures Television, will premiere season two of original drama series “Cleaners” starring David Arquette, Gina Gershon, Emily Osment and Emmanuelle Chriqui on Aug. 19.
Sony declined to provide viewership figures for the first season of the spy thriller. The 12 half-hour episodes of the second season will be available exclusively on Crackle.com and its distribution partners.
“Cleaners” is written and directed by Paul Leyden and exec produced by Leyden, Chriqui (“Entourage”), Anne Clements, John Schwarz, Michael Schwarz, Luca Scalisi and Sam Worthington (“Avatar”).
Season two of “Cleaners” is set on a small Caribbean island where Veronica (Chriqui) and Roxie (Osment) think they are about to cash in, just to realize they have not escaped their past. The duo arrange to meet Eileen (Missi Pyle of “Gone Girl”) to split a $57 million take, but she has teamed up with “Mother” (Gershon) to have the girls “erased.” Meanwhile, FBI agent Frank Barnes (Arquette) is recruited by a CIA agent (David Rees Snell of “Last Resort”) for an off-book mission.
“The second season looks bigger and badder than the first,” said Chriqui. “Shooting it felt more like a film set than a television set.”
The “Cleaners” second season was filmed on location in Puerto Rico. Chirqui said that “changed the look of the show” from the first season, which was shot in Los Angeles.
