Season 2 Trailer

(New York, NY) - Every day, countless minors are exploited, groomed and abused in person and online. Enter Roo Powell and her team at the nonprofit SOSA (Safe from Online Sex Abuse), who work in tandem with law enforcement to apprehend child predators by becoming the targets. After a successful first season resulting in four convictions of sexual predators, ID shows SOSA multiplying that number in Season 2 of UNDERCOVER UNDERAGE as the SOSA team relocates to embed with the sheriff's office in Canadian County, Oklahoma and deploys three new underage decoys. As the team launches the fictitious online accounts for a 15, 14 and even a 12-year-old persona, it's a race against the clock to identify the ACMs (adults contacting minors) and build a case against the alleged predators to enable law enforcement to make an arrest before the perpetrators can victimize other children. With 16 arrests featured this season, the pressure is palpable over the course of eight explosive and intense all-new episodes. Season 2 of UNDERCOVER UNDERAGE premieres on Monday, May 1 at 9/8c on ID, streaming the same day on discovery+.

Returning this season alongside Roo are social media lead Shelby Chikazawa and photographer and visuals lead Matt Monath. New to this season is SOSA's director of communications, Jordan Pérez, as well as various team members in support roles for research and evidence. The entire team works directly in conjunction with Canadian County Sheriff's Office (CCSO) led by Major Adam Flowers, who oversees its ICAC (Internet Crimes Against Children) Task Force, and Sheriff Chris West. Multiple adult decoys are deployed this season with Roo's guidance including the 12-year-old "Abby," 14-year-old "Mackenzie," and 15-year-old "Skylar." As these young women engage with the ACMs online via their decoy personas, Roo guides them as they process and absorb the impact of the lewd actions and disturbing words intended for actual minors.

Building off the tremendous work of last season, Roo and the team at SOSA continue to carefully craft back stories, social media profiles and photos to help the fictitious decoys transform into teens and tweens and together they work to engage with the alleged online predators to identify them for law enforcement. Once the ACMs engage with the underage decoys, the team communicates with the ACMs via texts, calls and even distressing video chats to gather pieces of information about their real identities. Every adult that contacts the teenage decoys is distinctly told from the outset that they are speaking to an underage girl and is given the opportunity to cease communication at any point. For those who choose to proceed with explicit exchanges with a supposed minor, the team mobilizes quickly to put a name to the offender. Then, once the team at SOSA has enough information for a positive identification, they turn over their findings to law enforcement to make the arrest and get an alleged predator off the streets.

This show is addicting to watch. I love seeing the endings saying “he is currently in jail”. The way these men think and act is just so vile, sickening and cruel. #teamSOSA Roo and the team are so strong

Definitely one of my favorite shows, it’s just really sad that when the credits roll, so many of these disgusting vile pigs have not been charged, even with video proof. Abusive child predators have way too many rights. When is the new season going to air😩😩 [bigsmile]

Love the show, but I hope they tone the music down for season 2. It’s too dramatic and too loud, you can barely hear the dialogue.

[love] love love love this show!!! And I can't wait for the 2nd season to start airing. However I do see your point in what you're saying but Roo can absolutely continue doing what she is doing just because there are so many (millions apon millions) of pedophiles out there that don't care enough to stop just because there's yet one more person trying to dupe/catch them. They already know that there's hundreds of people trying to get them. That's why they're all so cautious, as you see on the show. That's why they never meet right away, that's why they're are so scared to show the face right away, ect. Plus they say "Pedophilia" is a form of addiction and just like any other addict their not just gonna stop. There's always an exception to the rule but for the most part they're not gonna stop. And just like any other addict they have the mentality of "it's not going to happen to me". So that's why I know the show will continue to be a success.

The work this team is doing is remarkable. Watching Roo gripping her leg while trying to be unfazed by the hanis videos she is watching is heartbreaking. I personally Google the cases following the episode, understanding the hurdles and hoops required to aprehend these "men" is astounding. The laws are truly on the preditors side and the level of evidence to put them away blows my mind. If I had a teen daughter I would use this documentary as a teaching tool.

Although the details of this show might be hard to watch or hear, it is an eye opener of what can happen if parents are not paying attention to what their kids are doing on social media. I think it might be hard for many because it is real life, I think it is absolutely eye opening and although difficult it is necessary to protect our kids. The show was also on D.Phil. and I think it is making a difference.

I agree. Kids really are vulnerable and there are too many sick predators ready to jump at the chance to entice them to meet and possibly never be seen again. The laws in Canada are far too lenient on these freaks. I worked in the system and saw so many horrible things that these people have done to innocent kids. I think this show should be shown in schools across the world to let pre-teens and teens know what is out there waiting. At least education them hopefully so they don't
fall prey to a pedophile.

Why would you think it would be picked up for a second season? This 6 episode show has gained national attention and been promoted on so many platforms. This isn’t a salacious fictional “reality show”. Disgusting pedophiles I assume have seen it or heard about it. In no way shape or form Roo could continue being these fake personas unless season 2 is just a continuation of footage that was documented along with the first season and just hasn’t been aired (yet).

So is catfish, it’s been publicized a lot more than 6 episodes of this series. People will still do it and continue to get away with it. I disagree, hopefully more episodes are in the making.

Nobody said pedophiles are smart. I can only assume these predators believe they will never be caught...
