Plot Synopsis

Based on the Leaphorn & Chee book series by Tony Hillerman, DARK WINDS is a psychological thriller that follows two Navajo police officers in the 1970s Southwest, as their search for clues in a grisly double murder case forces them to challenge their own spiritual beliefs and come to terms with the trauma of their pasts. Navajo Tribal Policeman Joe Leaphorn must solve a series of crimes and he partners with new deputy, Jim Chee, who is back on the reservation for the first time since he was a child. Leaphorn and Chee begin by interviewing the surviving witness to the Big Rock Motel murders. Later, Chee meets with the coroner, but the cause of death remains a mystery; meanwhile, Sgt. Manuelito makes a chilling discovery of her own. Together they face down evil forces, both earthly and supernatural. Executive produced by George R.R. Martin, Robert Redford, series creator/writer Graham Roland, and series star Zahn McClarnon, DARK WINDS debuted on Sunday, June 12, 2022 early morning with two episodes on AMC+ and later that day at 9pm ET/PT on AMC with the series opener.
On Sunday, July 17, 2022 at 9pm ET/PT, AMC premiered "HozhooNaashaa," the season finale of DARK WINDS. Leaphorn, Chee and Manuelito descend on the hiding place of the Buffalo Society, only to be confronted with hard decisions that could change the outcome of the rest of their lives.

DARK WINDS has been renewed for a second season.
