The first series was a huge hit for BBC One, growing its audience across the series, and was BBC iPlayer’s biggest new title of 2019. It has had over 22 million requests on the platform to date.
Holliday Grainger will return as Rachel Carey for the second series, set to follow series one’s shock ending that saw Carey seemingly join forces with the shadowy correction team she had previously sought to expose. The Bafta Award-winning Ben Chanan – who created, wrote and directed all six episodes of series one – will also return to helm series two. Further details and casting will be announced in due course.
Holliday Grainger says: “I’m excited to be joining Ben Chanan and the team for series two of The Capture. 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.”
Ben Chanan says: “I am thrilled to be joining forces with the BBC, Heyday and NBCUniversal International Studios again. The Capture series two will see Rachel Carey fall deeper into the dizzying world of fakery and disinformation. She has only just scratched the surface of this conspiracy.”
Series two of The Capture (6×60′) was commissioned by Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, and Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content. It will be produced by Heyday Television and NBCUniversal International Studios, which is part of NBCUniversal Content Studios, for BBC One.
Series two will be written and directed by Ben Chanan. Executive Producers are David Heyman, Rosie Alison and Tom Winchester for Heyday Television, Tom Coan for NBCUniversal International Studios, Ben Irving for BBC One and Ben Chanan. The Producer is Kristian Dench. The series will be distributed by NBCUniversal Global Distribution.
Season 1 is set to premiere in the United States this July. In the UK, all six episodes of series one are available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
