Faith- and family-streaming service Great American Pure Flix has announced the second season of the television series “Going Home.” New episodes will premiere each Friday Jan. 5 through Feb. 9.
The first season of “Going Home” premiered on Great American Pure Flix in June 2022. Creator Dan Merchant returns as the Affirm originals series’ showrunner and lead director. Cynthia Geary once again stars as Charley Copeland, a hospice nurse who sees her role as a calling from God to help shepherd people from this life to eternity.
“This is one of my favorite and most meaningful roles,” Geary said in a statement. “I can’t wait for ‘Going Home’ fans to experience this new season filled with stories of compassion and forgiveness.”
In addition to Geary, the show also stars Cozi Zuehlesdorff, Aviona Rodriguez Brown, Steve Lloyd, Christopher Wiehl, Elly Sims, Trent Sims and Matt Davidson.
Season 2 guest stars include Karen Allen (Raiders of the Lost Ark), Mel Harris (“Thirtysomething”), Ellen Travolta (“Charles in Charge”), Gloria Reuben (Lincoln), George Newbern (Father of the Bride) and Cayden Boyd (The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl).
“We loved hearing how the show touched people’s hearts in our first season,” Merchant said in a statement. “In this new season, things get more personal for Charley and the other hospice nurses. We think the audience will be touched as Charley explores GriefShare with Alec to help manage the loss of his wife as well as a loss Charley doesn’t realize she’s still grieving. Janey grows into her own as an excellent nurse only to find things complicated by a new love interest, and Tamara manages serious health issues even as her strength and grace bolster Sunset House.”
Merchant turned to GriefShare, a global Christian grief-support group, for support after the loss of his father.
