Maggie Civantos returns as the series lead, Barbara, the criminal psychologist who once was a victim of an express kidnapping, currently working as a negotiator to solve cases similar to hers.

In season two of Express, Barbara will discover that the express kidnappings that they have been tasked to solve are just the tip of the iceberg of an industry built and sustained on fear; and that the company employing them, Zentral Risk, are major players in a far reaching and pervasive system of corruption that will continue to put the lives of her family in increasing jeopardy.

Joining the cast for season two are Alejo Sauras as Iker Torres, the new police chief, and Laura Laprida as Asia, the new member to the express team who will help the team solve cases due to her unmatched gift.
