The retired officer genre never fails to pique spectators’ interest. WGN America created the ex-cop drama ‘Almost Paradise,’ which follows former DEA Agent Alex Walker as he is forced to resign due to a personal situation and his battle with severe hypertension.
Alex relocates to a small tropical island in the Philippines to reclaim his health and life. However, the isle’s crime-ridden atmosphere tempts him to remount.
Dean Devlin and Gary Rosen, both award-winning screenwriters, serve as showrunners for the crime drama. It bears the same DNA as ‘Hangman’ and ‘Cortex’ and marks Christian Kane and Dean’s third collaboration, following ‘Leverage’ and ‘The Librarians.’
The show promised an action-packed storyline and performances by the main cast. And it did succeed in adhering to its assertions. Now, if you’re wondering if there will be a second season of ‘Almost Paradise,’ read on!

What Could the Almost Paradise Season 2 Plot Be About?
Alex Walker is a DEA agent in the United States who kicks asses and battles criminals. He is one of the team’s most skilled and reputed operations.
However, a recent betrayal by his colleague, coupled with his declining health due to high blood pressure and stress, causes the law enforcement officer to retire early.
He consults his physician, who tells him to avoid all forms of stress. Alex decides to relocate to an island in the Philippine Archipelago for this purpose.
He accepts a new position as a gift shop manager at a high-end resort. He obtains disability money from a nearby US Air Force post. As Alex adjusts to the island’s slow and peaceful pace, he notices a few infamous criminals from the island’s elite gangs conducting business in the hotel.
Naturally, Alex cannot stay away from their illicit activities and sets out to teach them a lesson, eventually returning to the world of combating crime and serving justice.
On the island, he meets investigator Kai, who initially dismisses Alex as stiff and pompous but eventually warms to him after discovering he is the polar opposite.
Season 1 concludes on a high note, with numerous revelations, twists, and quite a few bullets. Season 2 will pick off where Season 1 left off, following Alex and Kai as they go about doing what they do best – apprehending legendary criminals.
