Talking about the six new 45 minute episodes, the BBC explains: "Created and written by Ryan J Brown, Wreck Series 2 is set in the months after the events of Series 1's shocking blood-soaked conclusion. We re-join Jamie, Vivian and their found family of survivors back on land, as they strike back against Velorum, the corporate murder machine that claimed Jamie's sister. In a daring and desperate attempt to bring the company down, the gang go undercover to infiltrate Velorum's newest venture - an exclusive 'wellness' festival for millionaires in the remote Slovenian countryside. Relationships fray, blood pours, and not everyone will be making it out alive. It's going to be a cleansing experience..."
