WITF Passport: World on Fire
Refresh your memory with a binge of Season 1 before Season 2 premieres October 15!
Opening with the German invasion of Poland in September 1939 and ending with the Battle of Britain in 1940, World on Fire takes viewers across the first year of World War II, from ordinary life in Manchester to the beaches of Dunkirk.
World on Fire is an adrenalized, emotionally gripping and resonant World War II drama, it follows the intertwining fates of ordinary people in five countries as they grapple with the effects of the war on their everyday lives.
World on Fire Season 2 stars Jonah Hauer-King (The Little Mermaid, Little Women), Lesley Manville (Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris, Phantom Thread) and an ensemble cast in the next chapter of this epic World War II drama.
Season 2 opens, and RAF pilots are sent to destroy German bombers prowling the skies above Manchester, with rescue operations underway on the streets below. The true reality of war has arrived in Britain. Telling the story of World War Two through the eyes of ordinary people, following intrepid young heroes fighting for freedom, season two will take viewers from the war-torn streets of Britain deep into Nazi Germany, the resistance within occupied France, and the brutal sands of the North African desert – where troops struggle to adapt to a very different kind of combat.
