Spectrum unveiled the premiere date and trailer for “Manhunt” Season 2, which is subtitled “Deadly Games” and covers the search for the 1996 Atlanta Summers Olympics bomber. That’s the hysteria that originally and incorrectly fingered security guard Richard Jewell.

Jack Huston and Carla Gugino are set to star opposite Cameron Britton, who plays Jewell. (Huston’s character, Eric Rudolph, is really the guy the feds want.)

The series will debut on Feb. 3. Watch the first trailer in the video above.

Jewell is the security guard who discovered a bomb at the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta and put his life on the line to save hundreds of people. Jewell became an international hero — until, in a Kafkaesque trial-by-media, he was falsely accused of planting the bomb himself.

In “Manhunt: Deadly Games,” Jewell will take on both the media and the FBI, fighting to clear his name and hold the most powerful voices in the country accountable to the truth.

Writer and creator Andrew Sodroski will executive produce Season 2 of “Manhunt” with John Goldwyn and Michael Dinner.
