Showtime has released the full trailer for the five-episode limited series ‘Waco: The Aftermath’.
Coinciding with the 30th anniversary of the tragic events at Mt. Carmel that began on February 28, 1993, the series focuses on the fallout of the Waco disaster: the trials of the surviving members of the Branch Davidian sect and the rise of homegrown terrorist, Timothy McVeigh.
The five-episode limited series also provides a broader context for the escalation of the American militia movement, which foreshadows the infamous attacks of the Oklahoma City bombing and the storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
Taylor Kitsch played the cult’s charismatic leader David Koresh with Michael Shannon as FBI investigator and negotiator Gary Noesner. Shannon will reprise his role for the sequel series which focuses on the fallout of the disaster including the trials of the surviving members of the sect, and the rise of homegrown terrorist Timothy McVeigh (Alex Breaux).
Drew Dowdle and John Erick Dowdle serve as creators, showrunners, directors, and executive producers on the series.
