Rūrangi: Season 2 (NZ)

In the new season of this contemporary drama series spin-off of the 2020 film of the same name, transgender activist Caz (Elz Carrad, Rūrangi) is torn over the predicament facing rural rainbow youth. With this and Anahera’s (Awhina-Rose Ashby, Dear Murderer) unmasking of the macron bomber, the culture war intensifies between the transgender activists, farmers, and local Māori in the town of Rūrangi — all while ancestors from the past reach out to the living with unfinished business.
