Season 2 / Episode 1 and airs on 24 April 2020 10:00
The new eight-part series is a sequel set immediately after the events depicted in the best-selling novel by Lothar-Gunther Buchheim and Wolfgang Petersen's 1981 Oscar-nominated film. While the original exclusively followed the claustrophobic and increasingly brutal world inside a World War II German U-boat, this series focuses not just on the German perspective, but on the experiences of the French Resistance and Allied forces on land and at sea. The production also expands to look at rising resistance in the U-boat port of La Rochelle. Through it all, Buchheim's original message remains as relevant today as ever: blind fanaticism pushes young men into pointless war.
U-boat Captain Ulrich Wrangel and his men are caught in battle with a US Frigate. Meanwhile, in occupied France, young Captain Klaus Hoffmann worries that he won't be able to live up to his famous father's reputation.
Aboard U-612, the men are adjusting to their new lives. Meanwhile in La Rochelle, Simone struggles to piece together what happened the previous evening.
As U-612 completes the first part of their mission, the crew is reeling from a tragic death. Meanwhile on land, Gluck organises a parade for the return of Captain Becker and his men.
Following the explosion at La Rochelle, the Mayor is ordered to make some harsh decisions under the watchful eye of Gluck and Forster.
The crew welcomes the departure of Greenwood, but their new guest comes as a surprise. Meanwhile, Carla and Simone's relationship continues to develop.
Trapped below the angry, ominous rumble of a destroyer, the outlook is bleak for the crew of U-612. The inexperienced but eager young men wanted a battle, but they may have taken on more than they bargained for.
Details of what happened to the U-612 reach the shore and Forster has the task of breaking the news to Simone.
With news of Gluck's kidnapping reaching La Rochelle, Forster is on the warpath and everyone is in the firing line, including Simone.
Looks like something went completely wrong!
