Human Target Season Two Premiere: green lit target tonight

We've been waiting too long to check in with our friends Chance, Guerrero, and Winston and finally Season Two kicks off tonight!

Human Target is an action caper-style show, based on the DC Comics’ story about a former mercenary and hired assassin, Christopher Chance (Mark Valley of Fringe, Swingtown, and Boston Legal fame). He’s a wise-cracking but expert bodyguard who works with Winston (Chi McBride of Pushing Daisies, The Nine, Boston Public) and Guerrero (Jackie Earle Haley of A Nightmare on Elm Street, Shutter Island, Watchmen).

The three work out of Chance’s warehouse/home office solving mysteries and protecting clients. Typically, Chance incorporates himself into a client’s life as a temporary imposter who acts as a human target to protect the client. Winston sometimes joins him in the masquerade, or supports him from the office. Guerrero usually stays under the radar entirely; he’s the tech go-to-guy, with questionable ethics, as well as deadly aim with a firearm.

Season One’s finale, “Christopher Chance,” told the story in flashbacks of how the three met and became a team. Chance used to be a hired killer who had grown disillusioned with his job. He met Winston, a police detective who wouldn’t give him what he wanted: information on Chance’s next target, Katherine Walters. Of course Chance finds her anyway, but the combination of the his self-doubts and Katherine’s charm lead him to suddenly confess his true identity and purpose to her. The two of them escape, not only from her police protection but also from the shadowy group led by The Old Man, Chance’s boss.

Enter Guerrero, as another of the Old Man’s assassins sent to find Chance. They fight and Chance has the opportunity to kill Guerrero but does not. Evidently that helps sway Guerrero to side with Chance. Winston also appears again, during a critical action sequence of fighting, betrayal, and death. He ends up urging Chance to do something with his life, and their new business is born.

The new season brings two additions to the team: Ilsa Pucci (Indira Varma from Luther, Rome, 3 lbs.) and Ames (Janet Montgomery from Entourage, Wrong Turn 3). Pucci will play an incredibly rich woman who hires the team to protect her, and then wants to work with them on a permanent basis, and Ames is a beautiful ϋber thief that might want to go straight.
