Fans of The Capture may get to see DI Rachel Carey again following that shocking series 2’s cliffhanger.
The BBC One tech thriller premiered in 2019, with a second chapter debuting in 2022. There have been talks of Holliday Grainger’s detective returning since, with series writer and director Ben Chanan teasing there may be more ahead.
“I can’t confirm or deny at this point, I’m so sorry,” he recently told RadioTimes.com.
While he remained tightlipped about a possible continuation, Chanan sure thinks there’s enough material for more disturbing instalments.
The series follows Carey as she races against time to expose the truth behind deepfake footage manipulations that could land innocent people behind bars.
Season 1 focused on British army Lance Corporal Shaun Emery (Callum Turner), accused of kidnapping and murdering his barrister Hannah Roberts (Laura Haddock). The second chapter zeroed in a different story, with politician Isaac Turner (I May Destroy You’s Paapa Essiedu) being involved in a conspiracy and ending on Carey exposing the process of Correction.
“I think that the world of deep fakes and fake news and AI, it keeps developing,” Chanan said, warning it’s not a thing of the future anymore.
“We went quite far with The Capture in terms of what the hell could happen next, in terms of the sort of fear of what could happen,” he continued.
“I think we went quite far across the two series, and I almost feel sometimes like I need to take a minute and wait for the news to catch up or for predictions, nightmare predictions of what’s next.
“It’s not so much a futuristic thing, it’s kind of a what’s happening now thing, and so part of me feels like I need to take a break and unfortunately wait to see where the news takes us and where the world takes us and then respond.”
