Mark Strong will be back for a second round of Temple on Sky One…
The first season of Temple, Sky’s version of the beloved Norwegian thriller series Valkryien, ends tonight, but with a cliffhanger potentially in store, Sky wants you to feel reassured that the show will be back for a second season – by renewing it this week.
Mark Strong, Daniel Mays and Carice Van Houten star in Sky One’s Temple, which centres on Strong’s character Daniel Milton, a surgeon who gets entangled with a group of people in the seedy world of London’s criminal underbelly, after seeking help to save his wife’s life.
If you’re watching the season 1 finale tonight, it may be best to skip this next paragraph, which has some information on where season 2 will find Daniel! For everyone else, read on…
“The second series will start a month on as the characters are all brought back together when the crimes they have sought to bury begin to resurface,” says Deadline. “Daniel desperately tries to keep everything under control but with Lee falling for a fanatical uber-Prepper and Anna luring patients down to the clinic for illegal drug trials, life is only going to get more insane.”
Filming is set to get underway on season 2 in the early months of 2020.
“Daniel Milton is a richly complex character to play and after leaving the audience hanging on a heart stopping finale, I know series two will take viewers on an even wilder ride,” said Mark Strong in a statement about Temple‘s renewal. “The cast and I can’t wait to get started – I am delighted that we have the chance to take Temple to another level with a second series and to work again with the brilliant team at Sky.”
Sky’s Cameron Roach added, “Temple’s unique tone and compulsive narrative has ensured that it has become a firm favourite with our viewers, and the show already has an army of passionate fans We’re incredibly excited to announce a second season, and to see the next chapter of the thriller evolve. We are delighted that our customers will be able to revel in the world, and performances of the exceptional cast, led so brilliantly by Mark Strong, Danny Mays and Carice van Houten.”
