The second season of BBC Two’s drama series Line of Duty will premiere on Wednesday February 12th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Created by Jed Mercurio, Line of Duty follows anti-corruption unit AC-12 as they carry out a multi-stranded investigation into the conduct of police officers. The show’s second season opens with the ambush of a police convoy in which three police officers are killed and a protected witness is seriously injured. The sole surviving police officer is Detective Inspector Lindsay Denton (Keeley Hawes). Deputy Chief Constable Mike Dryden (Mark Bonnar) takes personal charge, assigning AC-12 to the case. Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott (Martin Compston), Detective Constable Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) and Superintendent Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar) are joined by newly-appointed Detective Constable Georgia Trotman (Jessica Raine) to investigate a complex case rich in unexpected twists and turns. Initially AC-12’s most valuable witness, the suspicion soon arises that DI Denton could be their prime suspect. The drama series is produced by World Productions, with Peter Norris serving as the series producer. Douglas MacKinnon and Daniel Nettheim directed season two.
