Previewing SurrealEstate Season 2 Premiere “Trust the Process”

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.]

We’re a week out from the return of our favorite supernatural real estate squad as SurrealEstate Season 2 begins on Syfy in the US and CTV Sci-Fi and Crave in Canada. It’s been a circuitous route – cancelled soon after the first season finale in October 2021 and then uncancelled with a surprise announcement in May of 2022. May you live in interesting times, y’all.

If you’ve been around for a minute, you know that I was ALL IN on this show. I adored its creepy, moody, sometimes snarky, sometimes sweet, sometimes terrifying (sometimes all at once) concoction, headed up by the always delightful Tim Rozon. In case you missed the first season, you can get started here. If you’re all caught up, read on!

Season 2 begins a few months after Season 1 ended, with Susan (Sarah Levy) bailing headfirst – quite happily – into taking the lead at The Roman Agency as Luke (Tim Rozon) recovers and wanders a bit, semi-adjusting to life without the gift that had defined him. Susan has put her own spin on things with her eternal optimism and crisis management skills, but she’s also just about ground the rest of the team into paste as they try to keep up with the influx of business.

Thankfully, it’s the whole team, which wasn’t necessarily a given when the show had to release the cast amid the cancellation and then get them all back several months later. It speaks to the show and every single person involved onscreen and off that the entire core cast returned – and trekked all the way up to St. John’s, Newfoundland to film, no less. But I digress.

While Susan is firing on all cylinders, August (Maurice Dean Wint) is cooking up new and fantastic ethereal communication and detection tools; Father Phil (Adam Korson) is running point on research; and Zooey (Savannah Basley) is tag-teaming managing the office and working in the field.

When Luke steps back in, less gracefully than he could have, and with a redefined skill set, Susan finally has a moment to take a beat and look around. Of course, all of this is transpiring as they crew are trying to help a client whose Susan-recommended kitchen reno unleashed a previously unseen roommate who doesn’t want to leave. We also check in with Megan (Tennille Read).

And that’s about all I’m going to tell you because it really is such a delicious treat to savor in real time and watch unfold. There are very few shows that make me smile all the way through them and this is one of them. I have missed these folks (and Newfoundland) and having them back on my TV is like finally getting to visit friends who kept crossing your mind but who you hadn’t connected with in ages. That they’re back for spooky season is perfect.

“Trust the Process” was written by series creator George Olson and directed by producing director Danishka Esterhazy.
