Noughts + Crosses Season 2 Plot and Cast
Once again, we’ll return to dystopian London where Sephy and Callum have fallen in love against the odds. However, their relationship is forbidden as Sephy is a black elite woman known as a “Cross”, and Callum is part of the white underclass known as “Noughts”.
At the end of Season 1, we saw Sephy rebelling against her powerful father Kamal Hadley by refusing to go to University. Before leaving the family home, she has a heart-to-heart with her sister, revealing her future is “not just about me anymore”. She is later seen throwing up before touching her stomach, confirming that she’s pregnant.
Kamal tries to stop Sephy and Callum from leaving, but she reveals her pregnancy to her father, who is shell-shocked but lets the pair leave as they’d intended. By the end of the episode, we see that the pair is hidden away somewhere remote and rural.
Season 2 is expected to pick up after these events, though an exact synopsis has not yet been revealed by the broadcaster.
Now talking about the cast, it includes Masali Baduza as Persephone – Sephy – Hadley, Jack Rowan as Callum McGregor, Helen Baxendale as Meggie McGregor, Paterson Joseph as Home Secretary Kamal Hadley, and Josh Dylan as Jude McGregor in the lead roles.
We would also get to see Shaun Dingwall as Jack Dorn, Jonathan Ajayi as Lieutenant Lekan Baako, Kike Brimah as Minerva Hadley, Rakie Ayola as Prime Minister Opal Folami, and Bonnie Mbuli as Jasmine Hadley.
