"Day 5" Season 2 Set Visit
On an intermittently rainy day in March, the crew of Day 5 gather to shoot scenes at the former Freescale Semiconductor Inc. campus in East Austin for Episode 3 of the second season of the Rooster Teeth sci-fi drama series. Cast members Stephanie Drapeau and Davi Jay sit with the production crew as co-writer/co-director Aaron Marquis oversees scenes involving guest star Jake Busey, a truck, and a bazooka. No spoilers here but let’s just say Busey's Air Force Officer appears to end up somewhat bruised and bloodied, given his makeup. A building on the mostly vacant campus appears to serve as a base for Busey and the troops under his command. Season 2 of Day 5 picks off where the first season left off, with the show’s four lead characters battling against an epidemic that kills people in their sleep. Season 1's final episode found Stephanie Drapeau’s Ally, Davi Jay’s Ellis, Jesse C. Boyd’s Jake and Walker Satterwhite’s Sam split into different factions and in danger, with a new character revealed to be possibly working against them. Expanded from six to eight episodes, Season 2 of Day 5 is still in production and will premiered at Roosterteeth.com at a date TBA. Show runner Josh Flanagan (top left), co-writer/co-director Aaron Marquis (top right), star Stephanie Drape (bottom left) and guest star Jake Busey (bottom right) discuss Season 2 of Day 5 during this set visit.
Note: Day 5 showrunner Josh Flanagan will participate in the panel “The (Digital) Viewer’s Lament: I Cut the Cord… Why Should I Subscribe?” on Thursday, June 8 during the ATX Television Festival.
