The eagerly anticipated second season of ITV’s hit drama series Broadchurch will premiere on Monday January 5th at 9pm, the commercial broadcaster announced today.
Created by Chris Chibnall (Law & Order: UK), the first season of Broadchurch told the story of a small community which is rocked when the dead body of Danny Latimer is found on the beach and the ensuing police investigation. The drama series is produced by Kudos Film & TV in association with BBC America and during season one starred David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Vicky McClure, Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan, Will Mellor and Arthur Darvill.
ITV is still not confirming plot details for the show’s second season, though it is expected to deal with the fallout from the season one finale which saw DS Miller’s (Colman) husband Joe exposed as the killer. Cast additions for the new run of episodes include Marianne Jean-Baptiste (Without A Trace), James D’Arcy (Cloud Atlas), Eve Myles (Torchwood) and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Bad Education).
