FX's border drama The Bridge has undergone a reboot of sorts in its second season.
While the show's first season followed Detectives Marco Ruiz (Demian Bichir) and Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) as they hunted for a serial killer in Juarez, Mexico and El Paso, Texas, Season 2 casts a much wider thematic net. Now left completely to its own devices rather than following the Scandinavian show on which it was based, The Bridge has shifted its focus to examine how political and corporate corruption on both sides of the U.S./Mexico border permeates issues like the drug trade, immigration and human trafficking. But make no mistake — it's actually more twisted (and bloody) than ever.
"It is a radically different show, and I mean that in the best sense of the word," creator Elwood Reid tells TVGuide.com. "It's trying to tell a bigger story, but the way we're trying to tell a bigger story is not to shovel a bunch of facts at you. We're telling it through characters, through things that affect people's lives."
Adds Reid: "[Police procedurals] can be empty calories. I'm going to set the table, I'm going to serve you some appetizers, and then I'm going to serve you a real rich four-course meal of weirdness, and let's see how that goes, instead of just that constant sugar rush of hunting the serial killer every week."
