Fans of the Israeli supernatural drama ‘Split’ will definitely be thrilled to know that thanks to Electric Sheep, the second season of the hit series is set to air online exclusively in South America.
The groundbreaking first season of Split centered around 15-year-old Ella Rozen, an introverted and awkward girl just beginning high school. As if high school itself isn’t bad enough for a girl who feels like she never belongs, Ella Rozen also happens to a be a Split – half human and half vampire. And the principal of her school? He’s the head of the Order of the Blood, a 1000-year old order dedicated to eradicating vampires.
Ella’s Love Story
Ella’s troubles range from the somewhat ordinary – being caught in a love triangle between her best friend Omer and a handsome new student named Leo – to the extraordinary, such as being named the Vampires’ Prophet, otherwise known as the vampires’ leader, and becoming the number one target of the Order of Blood.
What’s New in Season 2
Season two kicks off with Ella deciding she wants to live like a normal teenager. Split fans can probably guess how long that will last. Season two promises more of the excitement we became accustomed to in season one, but this time we’re about to deal with some nasty demons, the new enemy in town.
In addition to being a major hit in its home base of Israel, Split has become an international sensation, with broadcasting rights in over 78 countries.
