‘Marco Polo’ Season 2 Trailer Promises All Out War for Mongolia (Video)

Next 10 episodes of Netflix series start streaming on July 1

Netflix’s first “Marco Polo” Season 2 trailer teases that alliances will be tested as the Mongol empire is on the brink of war.

In the trailer, Kublai Khan (Benedict Wong) laments all he has had to do in order to maintain his power. But his trials are not over yet, as threats from without and within would claim leadership of his empire for themselves.

The 10 episode second season includes new and returning cast: Lorenzo Richelmy (Marco Polo), Michelle Yeoh (the Handmaiden), Joan Chen (Empress Chabi), Zhu Zhu (Kokachin), Tom Wu (Hundred Eyes), Olivia Cheng (Mei Lin), Claudia Kim (Khutulun), Rick Yune (Kaidu), Remy Hii (Prince Jingim), Mahesh Jadu (Ahmad) and Uli Latukefu (Byamba), among others.

“Marco Polo” is based on the famed explorer’s adventures in Kublai Khan’s court in 13th century China, and the dark and tempestuous battle for the expanding Mongol empire.

John Fusco, who wrote the Academy-Award nominated feature “Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron,” is executive producer and showrunner along with Dan Minahan. Patrick Macmanus, Harvey Weinstein, Bob Weinstein and Elizabeth Sarnoff serve as executive producers.

“Marco Polo” Season 2 will premiere on July 1.
