In a brief promo, DirecTV has provided a first look at the upcoming second season of its first original series, the crime drama “Rogue,” which stars Thandie Newton.

In the drama series Newton plays Grace Travis, an undercover cop tormented by the possibility that she caused her son’s death. In her quest for the truth, Grace doubles as an agent for a powerful crime boss Jimmy Laszlo (Marton Csokas) who she believes will lead her to her son’s killer.

As she struggles to become the wife and mother her family now needs, her life is further complicated by her forbidden relationship with Jimmy. To stay alive, Grace needs to help Jimmy find the traitor in his midst, all the while knowing he may have played a part in her tragedy.

The series debuted in the spring 2013 and despite the negative reviews, DirecTV ordered a second season of the series. Whether the ratings were behind the satellite TV provider’s decision to renew is not clear because no official ratings numbers were reported.

In addition to Newton and Csokas, the cast includes Ian Hart, Claudia Ferri, Joshua Sasse, Jonathan Holmes, Sarah Jeffrey, Ian Tracey, Jarod Joseph, Matthew Beard, and Martin Donovan.

The  10-episode second season of “Rogue” reportedly went into production this past summer and is scheduled for a 2014 debut.

Take a look at the new 16-second promo for the upcoming season below:
