    When The Vow premiered in August 2020, it offered a window into abusive sex cult NXIVM and its secret society, “DOS.” The docuseries’ first season concluded with the arrest of NXIVM leader Keith Raniere, who was convicted of sex trafficking and racketeering, but much has changed since then. Now, two years later, HBO brings viewers up to speed with a new installment, filmed throughout the trials of Raniere and associates Nancy Salzman, Allison Mack, and Clare Bronfman.
