Marvel has officially announced the followup to the highly successful podcast Wolverine: The Long Night. The new podcast entitled, Wolverine: The Lost Trail, will follow up the series with a 10 episode run in Winter 2019.
Wolverine: The Lost Trail will launch exclusively on the Stitcher Premium service and will become available on a wide array of podcast services at a later date. The Lost Trail will keep Richard Armitage in the role of Logan while bringing on Bill Irwin to voice Jason Wyngarde, Blair Brown as Bonnie Roach and Bill Heck as Remy Lebeau. The official synopsis provided by Marvel is as follows:
Marvel’s Wolverine: The Lost Trail is an epic quest that takes place in the Louisiana bayou. Following the events of Marvel’s Wolverine: The Long Night, Logan (Richard Armitage) returns to New Orleans in search of redemption, only to discover that his ex-lover, Maureen is nowhere to be found. And she’s not the only one. Dozens of humans and mutants have gone missing, including the mother of a teenage boy, Marcus Baptiste. With Weapon X in close pursuit, Logan and Marcus must team up and follow a trail of clues that leads them deep into the gothic heart of the bayou, where they encounter biker gangs, Cajun thieves and a world of wonders that defies explanation. It is here that they find Greenhaven — a backwater refuge run by a powerful mutant named Jason Wyngarde.
It’s exciting to see that The Lost Trail was enough of a success to warrant a sequel series. Wolverine: The Lost Trail will be Marvel’s second foray into a fictional podcast with The Long Night wrapping up on Nov. 7, 2018.
Dan Buckley, the president of Marvel had this to say about the upcoming series:
After seeing the overwhelming support for Marvel’s Wolverine: The Long Night, we are excited to introduce listeners to another unique audio storytelling experience. Marvel’s Wolverine: The Lost Trail will continue expanding Logan’s story and introduce more elements of the Marvel Universe. We look forward to expanding our content for Marvel fans and the scripted podcast community.
