BBC One, Heyday Television and NBCUniversal International Studios’ surveillance thriller The Capture will return for a second series.

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.

Around a week ago, Holliday graced the red carpet for British Independent Film Awards where she was nominated for Best Actress for her performance on Animals. Unfortunately, she didn’t win, losing against Renée Zellweger on Judy.

The acclaimed Animals has received a DVD, Digital and Blu-ray release date. The film is based on the novel of the same name by Emma Jane Unsworth and will head to the home formats on 6th January.

Special features include deleted & extended scenes, a making-of featurette, and the theatrical trailer. Here’s the trailer from the theatrical release



 



2020 will be a blast! The Capture was renewed for a brand new season, and there’s already hints on the fate of the characters! See below:

THE CAPTURE came to a nail-biting close earlier in the week as the fate of Shaun Emery was finally revealed and now series writer Ben Chanan has hinted at a huge shake up if a second series was commissioned.

Shaun Emery’s (played by Callum Turner) story came to a dramatic conclusion in the series finale of The Capture earlier this week. After being blackmailed by both American and British intelligence operatives, Shaun took the blame for Hannah Roberts’ (Laura Haddock) death.

Now, show writer Ben Chanan has hinted this could be the end for Shaun even if the series is commissioned for a second series.

The Capture writer has admitted he believes the solider wouldn’t return in future episodes.

When asked about a second season, Ben teased: “I mean, never say never.

“I don’t know yet,” he added, before saying ahead of transmission: “We’ll see how we feel at the end of it.”

So, if there is another plot line transpiring from the concluding chapter or an interest from viewers for another season, will Ben delve into the world of miscommunication once more?

Historically, drama’s both in the realm of television and film don’t tend to get sequels or follow-ups unless there is an idea better than the original to be explored.
