Based on the novel by Kem Nunn, “Chance” is a provocative psychological thriller that revolves around Eldon Chance (Hugh Laurie), a forensic neuropsychiatrist who reluctantly gets sucked into a dangerous world of police corruption, sexual obsession, fractured identities and violence.
In Season 2, after reluctantly getting sucked into a violent and dangerous world of mistaken identity, police corruption and mental illness, Eldon Chance comes out the other side a changed man. Whether that change is due to his having killed someone or the aftermath of his traumatic brain injury remains unclear. Along with his Nietzsche-quoting, knife- wielding, antique-furniture restoring friend D, Dr. Chance takes it upon himself to help his patients, all victims of violent crimes, by using vigilante justice to take out their abusers. But the events of last season catch up with him when Detective Kevin Hynes comes knocking. He knows what Chance did and he’ll keep his secret – as long as Chance uses his newfound vigilantism to help Detective Hynes take down an elusive serial killer.
