Aquarius: David Duchovny Previews Season Two Changes



David Duchovny is on the case. Recently, the Aquarius star spoke with TVInsider about season two of the NBC series.

Set in the late 1960s, the drama follows LA Detective Sam Hodiak (Duchovny) as he pursues Charles Manson (Gethin Anthony). The cast also includes Grey Damon, Emma Dumont, Claire Holt, and Chance Kelly.


Discussing season two changes, Duchovny says his character is a little “more under the gun” this season:

He’s definitely more under the gun. He’s being taunted by an anonymous dude who is sending him photographs of women in various states of distress, tied up and tortured. His son (Chris Sheffield) is still in military prison and won’t talk to him. His ex-wife (Jodi Harris) is spiraling out of control. So his life is falling apart. It’s not like he had all his s–t together last season, but he had more of his s–t together last year than this year, for sure.”

He also revealed this season will lead up to the infamous Manson murders in 1969:

We’ve sped up from the original concept. It was enough to have one season of an entire show that was supposed to lead up to the Manson murders where Hodiak killed more people than Manson! [Laughs] We didn’t want to try viewers’ patience anymore. This is the year the famous Manson murders actually happen. This season leads up to those murders, and then we cover the cultural and social aftermath of what it all meant to the country and to the characters who are dealing with it on the show.”

Later, Duchovny said season two will touch on themes that resonate with today’s issues:

War, civil unrest, civil rights, women’s rights and gay rights. These issues are ongoing, and that’s what makes the show work not just as a period piece, because you like bell-bottoms, but the cases are as current and ripped from the headlines as Law & Order.”

Season two of Aquarius debuts with a commercial-free two-hour premiere tomorrow, June 16th, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Aquarius’ Season 2: David Duchovny’s Hodiak ‘recognizes change is coming’

Many a thespian has turned to waiting tables or tending bar to support themselves between acting gigs. David Duchovny became an actor to pay the bills while writing poetry and fiction.

It was the mid-1980s and Duchovny was pursuing a Ph.D in English literature at Yale with the idea of becoming a writer and eventually a teacher.

“It seemed to be the most logical way to make a living while having enough time off to write,” explains the 55-year-old New Yorker to Zap2it. He returns as LAPD detective Sam Hodiak when Season 2 of the dark 1960s crime thriller “Aquarius” begins Thursday (June 16), with a two-hour, commercial free episode on NBC.


“And then I was at Yale getting a Ph.D and I just kind of fell into the drama department there because I started to think about writing plays and then I met actors. And there’s so many productions always going on around Yale that they never have enough actors, so they kind of recruited me to do a couple of small parts. And I started just looking into what it was to write a play and therefore I started looking into what it was to put on a play to act in a play and just life kind of took its own course.”

As the new season of “Aquarius” opens, it’s 1969 and Hodiak is under investigation for killing a suspect at a crime scene while still on the hunt for Charles Manson (Gethin Anthony, “Game of Thrones”), whose followers would soon commit the Tate/LaBianca murders.


Duchovny loves playing in the 1960s and a character seemingly at odds with the many social issues of the time that are still relevant today.

“I’m playing a guy who is really not part of that world,” he says. “I’m playing a guy who’s the white establishment that all these movements are taking place against. So what I found interesting was to be a man not of the ’60s in this show about the ’60s but a guy who’s going to keep his eyes open and, if not change, then at least recognize that the change is coming.”
