Holliday Grainger’s Detective Inspector Rachel Carey will return…
The Beeb has just confirmed that Ben Chanan will create a second series of The Capture for BBC One, bringing back Holliday Grainger’s Detective Inspector Rachel Carey for another thrilling block of episodes. It’s no surprise that a deal has been reached for series 2, as The Capture was BBC iPlayer’s biggest hit in 2019 with 22 million views.
“I’m excited to be joining Ben Chanan and the team for series two of The Capture,” Holliday Grainger said in a statement about the renewal. “Ben’s meticulously researched world challenges the boundary between possible and probable dark truths and constantly keeps you guessing. I can’t wait to explore what he has in store for Rachel Carey next.”
“The BBC is so proud of The Capture which gripped and enticed audiences last year, and following its launch, grew its audience each week from episode three onwards which is no mean feat,” said the BBC’s Controller of Drama Piers Wenger. “We’re hugely grateful to Ben, the cast and the entire team at Heyday Television and NBCUniversal for all their work on the series. I cannot wait for audiences to see where Ben is about to take this story next, and we’re excited to have Holliday back as the determined Rachel Carey, ready to take on her next challenge.”
David Heyman, Executive Producer for Heyday Television, added: “We could not be more delighted with the fantastic response to The Capture, from audiences and critics alike. Congratulations to our brilliant writer-director Ben Chanan who delivered this thrilling, provocative thriller, which resonated so widely – and to all our outstanding cast and crew. Series two promises to be an even more timely and enthralling conspiracy thriller, we can’t wait to share it.”
There’s no hint of an air date in the schedule for season 2 of The Capture yet, but we’ll keep you updated.
