Cleverman Full Episode Guide

  • Allegiances are tested when Jarli takes action in the city; Waruu possesses the one thing that can kill Koen.

  • Koen targets Waruu's power base and confronts him, demanding he close the Inclusion Clinic; Waruu is unintimidated as he believes he has a very special weapon; Slade has Waruu's hair DNA tested and is stunned by the results.

  • Koen confronts Aunty with the truth about his parents' death, and must forgive the unforgivable. Meanwhile, Marion begins to suspect what is happening to Waruu, and the clan decides what to do with Charlotte and her unborn Hairy child.

  • Koen grows in power and understanding as he spends time with Uncle Jimmy. Meanwhile, Waruu discovers a dangerous new creature and is led by an old story to a substance he believes can vanquish the Cleverman.

  • Waruu takes a position in government for the Inclusion Initiative, while Koen vows to do all he can to help the Hairy people.

  • On the heels of a successful first season, which earned a prestigious Peabody Award nomination, the six-episode second season picks up with the destruction of the Zone and the Hairypeople hiding out of fear for their lives. Koen, the chosen Cleverman, sets out to harness his powers in the hope of bringing all cultures together. His half-brother Waruu shares the same vision, but his method is far more dubious. For Koen to realize his mission, he must defeat Waruu and the full force of the Government, both of which are united against him. With twisting plotlines and new characters including Jarli the Bindawu warrior (Clarence Ryan), the second season of "Cleverman" is action packed, bloody, and thought-provoking. The series is based on an original concept by Ryan Griffen.

  • As the Containment Authority prepares to clear the city of Hairypeople, Koen must embrace his destiny as a Cleverman.

  • Charlotte agrees to try one last round of IVF at a clinic offering new technology. Slade offers Waruu a deal he struggles to refuse.

  • The Hairies are blamed for the continuing deaths. As tensions mount, Waruu demands Koen use his Cleverman powers to halt the murders.

  • Problems at the Containment Center heighten panic; both Waruu and Koen dismiss Slade's offer to help in a mysterious laboratory.

  • Koen is baffled by his unusual new powers. Looking for answers, he heads into The Zone. Aunty Linda realizes there is a new Cleverman.

  • In the series premiere, blame is place on the newly discovered "Hairypeople" after multiple unexplained violent attacks in the city.
