The countdown is on: season two of Homecoming lands on Amazon Prime Video this month. 

The critically-acclaimed series will be back on the streaming service on May 22. 

Season two will be a “fresh new mystery”, with Janelle Monáe in the starring role.

Her character “wakes in a rowboat adrift a lake, with no memory of how she got there — or even who she is", but it isn't long until she starts to try and get to the bottom of what's happening.

Her ensuing search for identity will lead her into the heart of the Geist Group, the unconventional wellness company behind the Homecoming Initiative.

"I knew something was wrong with me, but I couldn't explain it to anyone," her character says in the trailer.

"It was like the people around me were keeping a secret, like we were in a movie, and everybody knew we were in a movie except for me."

According to The Hollywood ReporterStephan James will be reprising his role as Walter Cruz, while Hong Chau will also be returning as Audrey Temple.

Chris Cooper and Joan Cusack will be joining the series.

Season one of Homecoming is available to watch now on Amazon Prime Video. Season two lands on May 22.
