The eight new episodes will be available to binge watch via Sky Box Sets from next month, as well as airing weekly on Sky Atlantic.

Emilia Fox (Silent Witness) will play Vanessa Hamilton, whose sinister business dealings are under investigation.

Clarke Peters (Jericho) plays Sonny Persaud, a renowned academic whose estranged daughter Rosa suddenly re-surfaces in deadly circumstances.


Merlin star Angel Coulby reprises her role as Laura Roebuck, alongside Con O’Neill, Johan Heldenbergh and Hannah John-Kamen.

The official synopsis reads: “The newly promoted French Commander Elise Wasserman (Poésy) and British DCI Karl Roebuck (Dillane) have been leading separate lives: two seemingly isolated events reunite them after a French couple are abducted from the Channel tunnel, leaving behind a traumatised small child, Chloe Fournier.

“When a plane crashes into the Channel, killing everyone on board, Karl and Elise are faced with bigger questions; forging connections from the clues thrown up by a vast field of debris, the closer they get to their assailants, the more elusive justice seems.

“Following a shocking trail of devastation, Karl, Elise and a cross border team, including British Detective Constable Borowoski (William Ash), and Detective Superintendent Bowden (Stanley Townsend) with Head Of French Counterterrorism (Thibault De Montalembert) and Lieutenants Renard (Juliette Navis) and Viot (Cédric Vieira) joining the investigation from France, the unit become embroiled in a terrifying, deadly game of brinkmanship as the victims mount up.”
