To die, to sleep – to sleep, perchance to dream. Rooster Teeth’s post-apocalyptic web series Day 5 returns Aug. 6 with its exhausted group of survivors of a deadly sleep epidemic searching for a safe zone to enjoy more than 10 minutes of drug-induced shut-eye. They believe that may have found one in the Sandman’s Oasis somewhere out west. Getting there, though, may prove harder than staying awake for five straight days. Season Two of Day 5 brings back Jesse C. Boyd’s former drug addict Jake, Stephanie Drapeau’s doctor Ally, Davi Jay’s pilot Ellis and Walker Satterwhite’s Sam. The return of Katie Folger’s deadly Meredith poses more questions than it answers, specifically in regards to whom she is working for and their ties to the sleep epidemic. The first two episodes of Season 2 of Day 5 also introduces three four characters: Adriene Mishler’s war journalist Gabbi, Ryan Cooper’s former UN worker, and Electra Avellan’s mother and her son, who is played by Tristan Alijah Garcia. High-profile guest stars include Jake Busey and William Sadler. Day 5’s eight episodes—expanded from the first season’s six episodes—will debut every Sunday at Roosterteeth.com. There will be a special Day 5 Season premiere screening at 4 p.m. Aug. 6 at the Nomad Bar with cast and crew in attendance. New cast member Adriene Mishler joins Day 5 showrunner Josh Flanagan during this interview. Adriene Mishler has appeared in such films as Austin High, Good Night and Joe. She is also a yoga teacher whose Yoga With Adriene YouTube videos has garnered her a worldwide following.
