What They’re Saying:

  • Mariana van Zeller: “Filming a whole season of Trafficked during a global pandemic was extremely challenging, but there’s been an explosion of black markets over the past year, and I think we all quickly realized that this series has become more relevant than ever. With this second season, we’ve managed to dive even deeper and gain even more access into underworld networks around the world.”
