Crackle Plus, a Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment, Inc. (Nasdaq: CSSE) company and one of the largest operators of advertising-supported video on demand (AVOD) streaming services, announced today the popular murder mystery series, The Wall, returns for a second season exclusively on Crackle starting October 1. The series is recorded in French with English subtitles and will be available to stream for free on Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung TVs, and many others.
Building on the success of the popular first season, in season two, the frigid North gets even colder when an engineer responsible for a fatal Quebec City bridge collapse is found murdered. Detective-Sergeant Céline Trudeau (Isabel Richer) once again must solve the case before the killer claims another victim. As Céline investigates both personal and corporate motives, she is saddled with a new and very green partner (Alexandre Landry), and a prime suspect who is also her ex-husband (Bruno Verdoni). When Céline learns that her daughter, Sophie (Maripier Morin), is in danger, the case becomes increasingly too close for comfort.
“The Wall is an incredibly engaging series that has all the elements that our audience looks for in a binge-worthy show,” said Jeff Meier, head of programming for Crackle Plus. “Every episode is incredibly scripted, with riveting storylines and next-level performances that leave our fans feeling the chill not only from the icy locales but also the terrifying atmosphere within The Wall.”
The Wall premiered in March 2022 and is one of Crackle’s most popular titles. In the first season, available now to stream for free, Detective Sergeant Céline Trudeau is assigned to investigate a strange homicide in Fermont, a small mining town on the Labrador border in Quebec, Canada. Upon arriving, she discovers “The Wall” — an immense structure that protects the inhabitants from the icy Arctic wind. This place of refuge for the population becomes a crime scene. The whole city is in turmoil…and everyone’s under suspicion.
Crackle Plus’ recent releases include the home renovation series Pet Caves, plus-size mountain climber documentary Kili Big, season 2 of the hit college thriller series In the Vault, the sci-fi series Salvage Marines starring Casper Van Dien, and the award-winning BBC series Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. Crackle Plus also recently announced season three of the award-winning series Going From Broke.
